how to start a fashion blog

Are you a fan of fashion with strong opinions on the subject? Do you feel the need to share these opinions with as many people as possible? If yes, then it sounds like you're meant to be a fashion blogger. 

While plenty of fashion blogs already exist, there is still room for more. The fashion industry is massive; it's currently valued at over one trillion dollars and it's still growing.

Basically, there is a huge number of people out there that have a passion for fashion.

While it may seem intimidating, you can reach these people and break into the world of fashion blogging. By using the following tips, you too can start a fashion blog and find success.


Be a Fashionista

It may seem obvious, but to start a fashion blog you have a strong passion for fashion. If you're not sure your love for fashion is enough, go through this checklist:


  • Do you know of any designers outside of the Project Runway season you're binge-watching?
  • Do you have strong fashion opinions and the confidence to share them?
  • Can you take one look at an outfit and come up with ways to improve it?
  • Are you up to date on fashion trends, with an eye towards what's coming next?
  • Is your wardrobe full of Gucci shoes and other fashion essentials?
  • Can you turn cheap clothes into quality outfits?

If you said yes to any of these - and feel the urge to work on what you said no to - then you already have the passion to start and fuel a fashion blog.


Put in the Time

So do you have the passion to start a fashion blog? Great, because you're going to need it.

While every blogger dreams of having a website that brings in lots of followers and money, this isn't something that will happen on day one. Honestly, it isn't likely to happen in year one.

That's why you need that fashion passion. Actually starting a fashion blog is easy. Keeping your blog going when few people are reading it is the hard part. 

However, if writing about fashion is something you really care about, then building your fashion blog will be possible. You're just going to need to put in the time.

That's why you should focus on setting aside time every day or every week for research and content creation. Your blog can only grow with consistent production of quality content.

By creating a schedule that you can follow on a regular basis, you will be able to create something that people will want to keep coming back to.


Boost Your Blog With Social Media

Successful fashion blogs provide a quality product, and yours need to do the same. However, creating good content isn't enough. You need to help people find your fashion blog content.

That's why you should support your fashion blog with social media.

Twitter and Facebook can be key to building a following for your blog. Facebook groups can especially help you build yourself as an important voice in different fashion-focused communities.

Instagram and YouTube are also important tools for a visual medium like fashion. They will allow you to show off your personal fashion expertise through outfits you create for yourself and others.

By sharing your content on other platforms, you will get more eyes on you and lead more people to your blog. With passion and time spent on quality blogging, these people will want to keep coming back.


Now Go Start a Fashion Blog

Lastly and most importantly, you have to actually start a fashion business blog!

Yes, you may need to spend time planning out how you will dive into the world of fashion blogging. But the road to blog success doesn't start until your website is up and you publish your first blog post.

Although you may be nervous, these tips along with your passion are what successful fashion blogs are made of. Visit the Digital Marketing section of our website for advice on how to start a fashion blog and ways to optimize or promote the blog.
