Hey Tribe, how are you? How are you keeping sane in times like this? I guess you are really strong, and that’s a good one! I promised you greatness and I’m not going back on my promise. We made all efforts to go shoot something and was hoping to escalate it in the days to come and now I’m hearing 14 days extension? It’s a sacrifice we all have to pay for the greater good, posterity will hear of your doggedness at combating this unseen enemy.
Let’s go to the question Tribe, “are Fashion blogs still relevant?” Yes, they really are. Let’s go down history for a bit and I don’t mean boring history. I could see you cringe at the mention of history. Blogs came up in the mid 90’s and have since evolved, influencing industries, lifestyle and society. At the turn of the century, blogs started raking millions of daily readers and grossing in droves–on a global scale–from WordPress to Medium, to Vogue etc. that informal tone and journaling experience has endeared it to many other than the conventional media and the fashion scene is no exception.
Blogs are where you can get all the style inspiration you need. You can experience the whole fashion scene from that device. More so, this is 2020 and the word on every millennials lip is “paperless society”. Personally, I still love a well printed magazine but there’s a limit to how many I can own. Else they become an unhealthy stack at home, why not carry my magazines everywhere and access them from anywhere? Fashion blogs are just the comfortable solution.
Information is key in our day and age. To find out about a piece, build a personal style or wardrobe, maximise your budget or just confirm some suspicion, blogs got you. You can easily engage the editor or author in the comments. I’d really love to know some of the blogs you follow for information or inspiration.
Also for fashion enthusiasts, models, influencers etc–even if you live for the clout alone–If you’re thinking of carving a unique path, blogging is the option. Putting together high fashion and street inspiration that are relatable–not just editorials put together by brands–for the ‘not so fashion savvy’ becomes rocket science, blogs are the option. Designers are also looking for more interpretations of their pieces, strategically position yourself, in no time, you’d be found.
Finally, fashion might not be your thing but with little tips you’d be making wholesome changes in your looks. Looks still matter, first impressions are still valid. Personal branding and image shouldn’t be overlooked. You’re striving to build the right capacity in career, business, music or whatever you’re doing, you should also consider building the right style. You don’t want to start making mistakes when you ‘blow’, let’s get it right now.
Ignore the durag tribe, lockdown got my hair looking crazy. This style is everything from some crisp formal look and a monochromatic informal look. Would you rock something like this and where would you rock it to? Don’t forget to share some of your best blogs with me and why you follow them in the comments below.
