October 23rd, 2018 by Jennifer Beile 5 Style Vloggers You Should Be Following

The blogging industry has evolved so much since the beginning days of posting outfit photos on WordPress or Blogger. Bloggers have established brands, created extended business lines and products, and created a platform for fashion lovers to have access to unlimited content.

The newest avenue that style and fashion bloggers are taking over is YouTube! Style vloggers are quickly gaining traction and we are seeing more and more of our favorite traditional bloggers creating video content using YouTube or Instagram. I have noticed myself focusing more on video content from my favorite style bloggers. I love being able to “go shopping” with someone whose style I admire, see the clothing and products in a more three dimensional way with movement and detail, and getting to know these girls on a more personal level.

Check out 5 of my favorite style bloggers that you should be following!

 

Beth Jones, B. Jones Style

How could I have a list of my favorite style vloggers without including our very own Crossroads Style Council member, Beth! Beth is one of the very first bloggers that I fell in love with and have followed since. She’s transformed her brand from a style blog to fashion and lifestyle vlog and films thrift challenges, weekly outfit videos, and style tips.

Check out Beth’s latest thrifting and vintage shopping video:

 

Kia Marie, TheNotoriousKIA

Kia is one of my newest finds, and I don’t know how I didn’t discover her sooner! She describes her style as “a blend of the grittiness of New York City and the carefreeness of southern California”. She posts impressive thrift hauls, video lookbooks, and “how to style” tutorials.

Check out her latest video of how to thrift Zara inspired fall trends:

 

Chriselle Lim, Chriselle Lim

Chriselle excels as a working mother in the fashion industry and has built a blogging and vlogging career based on her travels, beauty tips, fashion, and motherhood. Check out Chriselle showcasing her brand new fashion line from Nordstrom:

October 9th, 2018 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Coats to Pick Up for Fall

When it comes to fall fashion, there is nothing better than finding that perfect coat to keep you warm all season long. Admittedly, it can be easy to just pick up a classic black coat and call it a day. This fall, dare to step out of your fashion comfort zone though and experiment with different colored coats!

Scroll on for 6 coats you should try this fall:

If your goal is to turn heads all day long, choose a coat in a bright and bold color such as orange or red!

Add a dose of style to your 9 to 5 schedule by throwing on a long white coat.

 

One of our favorite fall trends has been the rise of the plaid coat.

 

Picking up a classic trench coat is always an obvious choice. For that extra bit of flair, style it with a scarf!

 

Never underestimate the power of a pink coat to make your outfit look more polished.

 

Grey coats work perfectly all season long, and they’re the perfect touch for those who love rocking neutral-colored outfits.
