5. Tavi Gevinson

Literally one of the youngest of the bunch, Tavi’s proven herself to be an old soul. Grey hair? She’s had it. Granny chic? She’s a proud believer in its power. But given her small stature, she’s accomplished more than most bloggers have in their entire careers. She’s started an online magazine that’s drawn contributors such as John Hamm and Sarah Silverman, she’s attended couture shows and throughout it all, she’s managed to stay true to herself.

Her over-the-top styling and distinctive voice have given readers an inside look at the fashion world as well as alternative ways to style even the simplest closet staples. Bring on the arm parties, Manstagrams and more, Leandra.

8. Derek Blasberg
Blog: Mr. Blasberg
Twitter handle: @derekblasberg
Classy author and Harper’s Bazaar contributor profiles fashion icons on his own blog, Mr. Blasberg (there’s also a little self-promotion, but we don’t mind seeing photos from Blasberg’s last Western-themed birthday party). We love his insider access and appearances by his famous friends (Nate Berkus, Marc Jacobs, Karlie Kloss, P’Trique, various dachshunds), but more than anything, we love how Blasberg always keeps it classy.
Memorable tweet: “The Olympic event that I’m looking forward to: the British model walk off with Kate, Naomi, Stella, Lily, Georgia etc. When is that again?”
9. Bryan Boy
Blog: Bryan Boy

Marc Jacobs’ BFF and irreverent blogger Bryan Boy not only snagged a one-of-a-kind bag from MJ himself, he’s often spotted front row at Fashion Week and Tyra has chosen him as one of the new judges for America’s Next Top Model. We’re sure he’s smizing behind his signature shades.

11. Garance Dore
Blog: Garance Dore
Twitter handle: @garancedore
Francophile meets fashionphile in one tall package. Dore made her name by illustrating her blog posts (though those posts are becoming more of a rarity these days) of her favorite pieces or street style subjects, which gained her a cult-like readership. Comparisons to Sofia Coppola soon followed and now she’s one-half of fashion’s It-couple and also has a collab with Kate Spade that just debuted in stores. (See Scott Schumann above).
Memorable tweet: “Showing @thesartorialist [sic] the place where I grew up, Girolata. It’s wild, and hot, and beautiful, and I misse”
12. Dan Trepanier

Flame-red hair, crimson lips and a plastic dino — those are Sea of Shoes signatures. Aldridge got her start photographing her just-off-the-runway shoes, but built a legion of fans thanks to her quirky style, love of vintage and her covetable wardrobe. The Texas native has gotten some backlash thanks to a recent article, but throughout it all, her style’s stayed unflappable.
Memorable tweet: “Christian Grey knows how to braid hair AND prefers white wine? I’m sorry…”
15. The Platform
YouTube channel: the Platform
Twitter handle: @theplatformYT
Don’t dismiss it as another YouTube channel that’ll teach you a smoky eye or how to wear a high-low top. Instead, it’s the channel that launched P’Trique. The fashion darling made his (her?) name in “Sh*t Fashion Girls Say,” but cemented his (her?) place in the fashion lexicon with continued commentary on trends and fashion week.
Memorable tweet: “As a celebration of Monday, someone at the office named ‘HR’ started a sexual harassment jar. I’ve already had to put $20 in. Wtf?…”
16. Bag Snob
Blog: Bag Snob
Twitter handle: @bagsnob
Hate ‘em or love ‘em, the duo behind Bag Snob isn’t afraid to let you know if a bag’s got it all or deserves to be tossed. Theri picks get instantly sold through and the bags they can get relegated to the clearance bin. Totes, clutches, It-bags and the flavor of the week all get the Bag Snob treatment and believe it or not, designers actually listen. The duo teamed with DKNY for a capsule collection that flew off the shelves.
Memorable tweet: “I love working w/Americans. Direct&to the point. Was frustrating dealing w/the Chinese,everyone trying to be polite yet nothing gets done.”

One of the stars of Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas, Courtney Kerr wasn’t just the resident Southern belle — she had style to spare in a city known for lavish spending and big hair (it’s Texas, after all). She (and her coterie of friends) document their style and the latest trends on Kerr’s blog.
Memorable tweet: “Y’all, its a good day. Like, its a really, really, good day.”
19. Wendy Nguyen
Blog: Wendy’s Lookbook
Twitter handle: @wendynguyen
Pre-blogging, Nguyen studied psychology at Berkeley and when she’s not photographing her latest acquisitions, she volunteers at InsideOutWriters, an org that works with previously incarcerated youth. The smarts to back the style? Sure, it’s rare, but Nguyen’s photos and stellar style show that it’s one combo that never goes out of style.
Memorable tweet: “*Virtual hugs*!!!”
Blog: 9to5 Chic
