Fashion bloggers have been on the rise for many years now and have quickly changed the way we see and understand the fashion industry. With social media the buzz topic on everybody’s lips, they have used this platform judiciously and have gained their own type of ubiquity and have become style icons in their own right. By merging online and offline worlds, they’re building brands to rival celebrities. We’ve picked five of the most exciting new generation fashion bloggers to follow, below…
1. Akin Faminu
Tall, dark, and stylish: all three words adequately describe blogger Akin Faminu, the über-stylish mastermind. From his photographs, it’s clear that Akin has never met a suit he didn’t like but he also wears casuals with just as much aplomb. We envy his ability to pull off everything from on-trend denim on denim to bright busy prints.
Her particular style of blogging — photo-heavy posts featuring cool clothes and model poses — has greatly influenced the league of fashion lovers who have followed her. For fans that want to emulate this make up artist/fashion lover…and there are plenty of them… there is nothing more perfect.
This blogger is best known for her accessible, yet educated, approach to fashion. Prior to launching her blog, Ezinne has worked as a fashion stylist, which means she has a professional edge when it comes to outfit posts. Asides that, fashion brands love working with her because she has a reputation for converting readers into shoppers.
Temi Otedola is seen as an up-and-comer in this space but she’s already amassed a large following across the various social media platform. Appealing to the sorts of readers who worship the young, fun and flirty look, hers is a go-to site for runway trends, personal style and outfit inspiration
If we had to sum up Denola Adepetun in one word, it would be “dapper.” His penchants for a well-fitting suit, crisp tie, and perfectly folded pocket square all combine to make him a vision of Old-World-meets-New-World style. He epitomizes clean-cut, modern male style—with a dash of whimsy.
