Top 40 Black Female Fashion Bloggers

December 5, 2012
At this point, the amount of blogs I’ve got bookmarked on my computer would qualify as obsessive stalking. Like seriously, it’s the first thing I do after work.Visit blog pages, make mental notes and yes be green with envy, because guys these bloggers are damn good. But sometimes even after bookmarking pages, it’s still hard to find all your favourite links in one page. Hope this post provides you with the all the inspiration and insight you need. I know there are obviously more than just 40 Black Female Fashion Bloggers out there but for a start, these are the ones I visit the most. In no specific order, here they are:

13. Fashion Bomb Daily

Created by Claire Sulmers, the Fashion Bomb Blog is the shiznit. If you want to know what is happening in the fashion industry (almost even before it’s happened..yes Claire always beats me when it comes to fresh news. Damn) well, the Fashion Bomb Blog is a must. Fashion Bomb Daily carries so much variety including celebrity style, runway style, what to wear, Claire’s personal style, bloggers’ style and street style. You’ll love it. Guaranteed.

14. Faintly Masculine

Ariel’s blog is aptly titled. Admittedly, her style may be faintly masculine and she may only shop in the menswear department but hell, Ariel’s one of the best looking bloggers out there. With her natural curls (check out my Top 10 Natural Bloggers) and uncalculated ensembles she makes me want to shop at Burton. Grrrrr.

Wise words and witty yet thought-provoking daily posts by our very own Tiki. Not your usual fashion/style blog; Tiki’s Thoughts delves into her daily  encounters and gives insight on juicy topics that we all love to read about: Sex, dating and yes her close encounter with death. 

17. Ring My Bell

British belle, Ashley Madekwe off of Revenge (one of my favourite series released this year!) has got a serious passion for fashion off camera. Her character on Revenge may not be my favourite (sorry Ash, Emily takes this one), but her fashion sense is just off the chain. I’ve only got three words for her style: Love. To. Steal.

24. Style Pantry

If you don’t know Folake Kuye of Style Pantry by now then you must be new to this blogging thing. What am I even saying? Even new born babies know Style Pantry. Yes, she goes well hard. I just want to Photoshop my head on all her looks and upload them on my blog! Kidding. But seriously, she’s the bomb.

25. Meek-N-Mild

If Shirley Eniang is one thing, it’s definitely meek. I’ve never seen such understated, elegant, classy and laid back style. This girl is a natural. Her YouTube videos and DIY are the more reason to follow her.

Jeimy oh Jeimy. She oozes elegances. Another amazing source of inspiration for girls with toned curves. 

27. Afro Vaidosas

Naisy of Afro Vaidosas is of Angolan native and Afro Vaidosas remotely means ‘vain African.’ You know a blogger is good when you spend hours browsing their blog even though you can’t understand a word  (mainly Portuguese) of what you’re reading!

28. Can Never Be A Skinny B****

Brenda Chuinkam is the stylist behind the blog with the cheeky title. Go girl! can Never Be a Skinny B***h is an unpretentious fashion blog by a Cameroonian beauty queen based in Canada.

31.Shoe Gawker

Zeinabou is the baddest gal out there! She kills Every.Single.Post. I love the vintage feel of her pictures (location is on point). I want her wardrobe, hair cut and can her figure be shipped over  as well? Thank you.

32. Bambi’s Armoire

Bambi’s Armoire is a dream. The blogger, Tosha, is always one trend ahead. As if the style is not talent enough, she has been blessed with the legs of a giraffe. I’m just green with envy. Kidding. But seriously, she must have have named her blog Bambi for a reason. She’s just as graceful as the deer itself.

36. Shop Now, Save Later

Awww, talk about swag. Think Tysha James. She gives me inspiration. Her ensembles are stand out. I definiteley have nicked a few ideas off her. Thanks Tysha:)

37. Vintage Virgin

Okay now this is one daring stylista. i wouldn’t even dream of compiling some of the ensembles she puts together. She’s in a planet of her own. Edgy, fierce, quirky and daring are words I’d use to describe Jessica. I’m driven to be more adventurous and inventive with my style.

38. J’Adore Fashion
Stella is the personification of polished up style. Read all about her on her Style Diary here.
