Most influential style blogs
I don't know where to post this ....


99 MOST INFLUENTIAL STYLE BLOGS

How did we arrive at the 99 blogs listed? We started with hundreds from around the world - some from first hand knowledge, others discovered from countless hours of following blogrolls, network publisher listings and links from comments. After eliminating the ones that were abandoned or hadn't been updated in a while, we took a few statistics, did a little math and gave them a score representative of general content quality, popularity and buzz. The 99 most influential blogs span multiple categories: from the street and personal style of the trendsetters around the world, to behind the curtain looks at the people who create and shape the fashion industry - and of course the bloggers who stay on top of who's wearing what, and where to buy it.

Style Bubble only 9th should be top 5 compared to their pickings!
There are a number of questionable entries and one or two missing. These lists are always odd

I'm not familiar with some of these blogs, but the one I find beyond questionable is The Cobrasnake and also how high it is on the list. I'm not that fond of Go Fug Yourself either.

Omg, Bryan Boy is on the list?

I love The Cut, J&J and The Sartorialist, but that's all I know when it comes to these blogs.

for one,why is it all jumbled up as one? some of those aren't exactly mere style blogs. some of them are reportage/information blogs from professionals. such as...a shaded view,hintmag,ponystep,and jc report

secondly,style bubble...susie's blog has become as popular if not more than those in the top 3. it should have been second.

a bit weird they would compile a ranking list as such...i didn't realise blogging was so competitive?? silly.

^ Everything must be ranked ... of course :p Is it bad of me to say I would like to see the #1 spot overtaken by another blog?

I'd rather see these sort of style blogs separated in categories than compile them all in one large list, it's difficult to compare say, Garance Dore towards Style Bubble, both offer different insights in style and fashion but I pretty much love reading and viewing them equally as to one each other.

Plus, kill me but Garance seems to have more influential and overall better photography than I dare say, The Sartorialist In which whom I love no less, don't get me wrong, just I'd like to see the #1 spot taken by a lesser predicable, already well-known street style blog.

Yup, almost cliché to make him top spot again and again and again...

how about instead of having blogs who already are famous/known/etc, why not have the top 100 blogs that SHOULD be famous, but aren't?
that way new inspiration can come, and TFS could have some new names and faces,
and that would give the "unknown" blogs a boost?

i think it's worth a try (:

GFY is very funny and well-written, but they sometimes misjudge completely.
I think making such a list is a bit pointless, sure The Sartorialist and Garance et al are fabulous, but you can draw inspiration from anything, it could be the smallest blog, but if they have one post that you really love and get inspired by than that's all you need. So no need for competitiveness, and let's just celebrate the richness of the amount of style blogs instead of all comparing them.

And as we all know, cliches are not stylish

Blogs / sites I frequent that are not on the list (not that I'm making an issue of it): Design Scene, Tom and Lorenzo, of course the FashionSpot.

I don't frequent these blogs / sites, but they are pretty good:
NSC Fashion Network, The Telegraph's fashion section and Stylehive.

clichés are the death of anything. and they are not interesting. the only time i've ever visited sartorialist was when he posted an image of an vandevorst in a cocoon cape during paris p-a-p and had no idea who she was!
