For the times when you’re just not sure what to wear, or are looking to revamp your current wardrobe, fashion blogs are undoubtedly the one place on the internet that will save you.

The best fashion blogs are the ones that not only document their impeccable dress sense but also inspire and encourage you to express yourself though fashion – and show that ‘in trend’ or not, you can wear whatever you want.

From what started out as a hobby on the side to becoming a full-time business, fashion bloggers are bigger and better than ever at this current moment, and their dedication to their social platforms has well and truly paid off. All around the globe, fashion bloggers are earning a living (and rightly so) from their online hubs of inspiration, making it easier than ever to steal their style.

With so many fashion blogs out there, and while we might be biased, we can’t help but feel like the best of the best in style influencing comes from right here in Manchester. While London may be considered the UK’s fashion capital, heavily influenced by the successful London Fashion Week, Manchester has certainly placed itself firmly on the fashion map.

The influx of independent Northern Quarter boutiques offering weird and wonderful styles that you can’t get your hands on anywhere else has seen many flock to Manchester to get their hands on unique clothing and accessories to ignite their wardrobes. The diversity of style here can be picked up on by simply walking a few yards down Market Street and taking notice of the variety of clothing sported by individuals, and that’s what sets us apart from the rest.

All of this coupled with the many incredibly successful online fashion brands which formed and reside in the city has well and truly seen Manchester compete in the fashion stakes.

Although, none of this comes as much surprise as fashion is engrained in our history. From the opening of the world’s very first textile mill in 1781 which influenced the thriving cotton industry, we have lived through decades of the ever changing and ever inspirational Manchester fashion revolution.

So, if you’re a self-confessed fashion addict, we can bet you’ve been sucked into the Instagram hole one too many times, scrolling for hours on end to find inspiration for your next fit. Well, we’ve saved you some time by compiling our list of the best Manchester-based fashion bloggers for when you’re looking for your upcoming fashion fix.
