You don’t need to subscribe to the latest magazines to keep up to date with the latest trends in fashion. Today’s women are turning from expensive magazines to online fashion sites and blogs to update them on everything they need to know. With internet access, it won’t be hard to find a plethora of websites solely dedicated to style and fashion.
But how do you separate the good from the bad? Well, first, get your PC connected and use it to browse through a variety of online fashion websites. Type in a general sentence or a specific word you’re looking for. For example, you might be interested in looking up the latest trends for this year, so type in the word ‘latest trends for 2010’ or something to that ilk. You are sure to get a few million websites concerning that topic alone, but the ones that come out in the first few web pages are the ones you want to pay attention to, as these are the ones that have received the most hits.
If you know a certain designer brand of fashion blog you might want to visit, type in the names or addresses in the search engine. A list of blogs and other online fashion sites that have mentioned the designers name will appear as well, so have fun browsing through them and decide which ones are relevant to what you’re looking for.
Once you’ve found a blog or fashion site you like, look for the links they have to other like minded sites. They are often found in the “Categories” section or simply titled “Other online fashion sites to visit” These include links relevant to what you are interested in, and who knows, you just might stumble upon your next favorite blog!
Another way to sieve the good from the bad is to check out online fashion and style boards. These places are mediums of discussion where people with the same interests come to share their views and basically discuss the latest trends and fashion sites they love. It’s a great way to get tips right from the horse’s mouth. You can also ask your own questions and air your views, as long as you are signed in as a member.
There are also a number of companies that do yearly surveys to suss the top 50 blogs and online fashion sites that receive the most hits. Some of these are voted on by the public, while others are chosen only by the industry’s experts. Whichever way, be sure to check them out for more inspiration.
Last but not least, once you’ve found the ultimate online fashion sites or blogs you want to follow, be sure to bookmark them so you can receive instant email alerts any time there are updates. It’s a great way to keep you on your toes for the latest in trends.
Of course one lady’s favourite online fashion site may be the worst for another. You should not limit your taste or choice of site according to the opinion of others. Choose the sites that you really connect with and want to follow, and the rest will work its way out.
