Amongst the thousands of fashion-obsessed stylistas popping up all over the web, there are a select few that I never tire of browsing through their eye-catching imagery and inspirational outfit combinations. Time is a precious commodity, but peep these 5 fashion-forward influence-ers worth every second of your idle minutes to spare...
Blogger/stylist Julie Sariñana makes the top of my list. The LA native dishes California cool in every serving of fashion soup on her popular blog. There is something so appealing about her knack for making the most effortless outfits look perfectly polished.
For example, Jules will pair distressed army green cargo pants with a billowy, nautical, striped tee, a leopard print belt (skinny of course) and suede, wine colored peep toe heels or you may find her color-blocking with an on-trend neon blazer, white tank, brightly colored skinny jeans, and a pair of flats from her embellished Converse sneaker collection.
Her youthful yet chic approach to fashion is quickly making her a style savior when personally drawing a blank on what to wear.
Kristen Gipson, better known as Mademoiselle KDIA, strictly blogs for fun. If you had a closet full of drool-worthy designer duds and a never-ending passion for fashion, you would too.
The American Apparel model travels, breaks bread, rubs elbows, and shops with some of the most influential trendsetters in the entertainment industry. On top of that, her exotic beauty coupled with her kind effort to give style and life advice to all that ask probably attributes to her quickly growing fan base on Tumblr.
From Jordan's to Givenchy heels, the Chi-town style star continues to keep readers guessing.
Recent college graduate McKenzie Renae is the ultimate girlie girl. She loves makeup, painting her nails, accessorizing, D.I.Y projects and a host of other fun to watch activities.
The humble blogger has been featured in Ebony Magazine and Allure.com, but the Atlanta native's journey has only begun. She has turned her passion into a business by selling custom-made cut-off denims to her readers. And that's not all. Every fashionista needs a style icon and I co-sign her admiration for singer/DJ Solange Knowles. Great minds think alike.
The student with style may not know which major to declare, but Jade has proven that she is a professor of Affordable Chic 101 on her San Diego college campus. At first scroll, thoughts of budget busting fashion pieces fool the eyes until you look at Jade's fashion dossier that reveals the mainstream retailers we all frequent with our limited funds (F21, ASOS, Zara, H&M, J. Crew -- and the list goes on). Fur, leather, jewels... oh my, there's so much more than meets the eye!
