Fashion is really fun, and so is getting dressed and styling outfits…until you’re stuck wearing jeans a t-shirt because you’re simply out of ideas or uninspired by your own wardrobe.
Well, don’t worry. It happens to the best of us. We all reach the point where we’re tired of seeing our clothes day in and day out, so we fall into a style rut and temporarily lose the fashion flare that makes our own style unique to us. Sometimes, the only way to cure that is to train ourselves to see our clothes in a new and different light, or to purchase pieces that can inspire us to get our creative fashion juices flowing once again.
But how will this sudden spark of inspiration come to you? It’s certainly poetic and charming to say that nature and art can act as inspiration, but in reality, there isn’t a large percentage of people that rely on a tree or bed of flowers to generate inspiration for a killer outfit. In the real world, we look to celebrities and magazines. But even those aren’t always the most helpful because the clothes presented are not always wearable for the everyday person. So we turn to bloggers, a healthy compromise between a celebrity and the everyday individual.
Bloggers are in abundance these days, so you’re sure to find at least one that has a similar fashion style to you that you can look to for inspiration when it’s one of those days where you feel like crawling back into bed because you just can’t find a decent outfit. Among the hundreds of thousands of blogs, here are 20 fashion blogs you need to follow for ultimate style inspiration.
20 Canadian Fashionista
Amber Desilets is a Canadian fashion blogger who runs her very self-explanatory blog Canadian Fashionista. Though there are quite a handful of great Canadian bloggers, no one can rival Desilets' style because it’s constantly changing. She can go from retro to preppy, to grungy, and not look odd or out of place. If you’re a fashion chameleon-like Desilets, you’ll definitely be able to find some ideas on her blog.
There’s no single title or even conjunction of titles that can accurately and entirely sum up the range of Desilets’ style. It truly covers practically every spectrum on the fashion scale.
She’s worn everything from monochrome to pattern clashing, sportswear, and formalwear, and is not afraid of any colour—though she does have a preference for pink.
Desilets is a true embodiment of what fashion is: whatever you want it to be and whoever you want it to make you. If one day you feel sporty, dress sporty. If another you want to dress preppy, dress preppy! You shouldn’t feel the need to keep yourself in a fashion box, something that Desilets certainly does not do.
19 Allegra Shaw
Allegra Shaw, whose blog goes by the same name, is a Canadian blogger who’s style is one to follow if you need help mastering how to style your wardrobe staple pieces any time throughout the year.

Shaw’s style looks effortless, with her outfits seeming as though they took two seconds to throw together. She is the ultimate effortlessly cool girl everyone secretly wishes to be.
Though she is a master of her own style, she often ventures out into other ways of dressing, in order to help her viewers with outfits to wear to specific occasions.

Her style is very 'model off duty' and she could easily be mistaken for Alessandra Ambrosio.
Though Glazer sometimes does wear flats, she often opts to wear heels instead. Though we’re not sure if it’s just for show, if she actually does run around New York in heels and takes her two-year-old son with her, more power to her.
Interestingly, Glazer’s blog is divided into seasons, with every season being allotted their own tab, as well as a tab for items she has bought, an inspiration tab, and a tab to shop her Instagram pictures. So whatever you’re looking for, it will be easily accessible with this system set in place.
