1. The Sartorialist
Arguably the most popular street style fashion blog, The Sartorialist was started back in 2005 by Scott Schuman, a former director of men’s fashion at Bergdorf Goodman in New York. Schuman is credited with pioneering fashion photography in blog form with his ability to show how real-life people with great taste look around the world. He’s since gone on to publish a book by the same name of his blog and was featured in Intels’s Visual Life series as he explained how technology played a pivotal role in bringing his passion for fashion and photography to life. Schuman takes photos of stylish people in several different locations, including Paris and Milan. Come here to see gorgeously shot fashion photography found right on the street.

3. Who What Wear
From celebrity fashion and runway trends to shopping suggestions from fashion experts, Who What Wear (WWW) has you covered. Started in 2006 in Los Angeles by two former ELLE magazine editors, this site has a great mix of both street style and runway. If you’re interested in checking out the latest trends, they have the “trend report” where they’ll tell how you to easily wear certain styles, including shirtdresses or plaid pieces, without looking like a fashion faux pas. This site also picks out “the girl of the month” and then showcases a selection of products that reflects her impeccable taste.
Tip: If you prefer a simple blog layout over the look of a fashion magazine, check out Who What Wear’s blog. Curated by WWW editors, the blog shows of celebrity and runway style in a less formal way. It’s also a quick way to get your fashion fix.
