Culture Trip stands with
Black Lives Matter
Lawyer by day, fashion blogger by night, Carolin’s life and blog sound like something out of a TV sitcom – and she has the wardrobe to match. Rather than writing about her wardrobe, she lets her clothes do the talking on this picture-led blog. And it’s not just the clothes – she writes about how to recreate her signature long, wavy bob and posts pictures of OCD-approved, Instagram-worthy closet. Her look is simple yet stylish, easy to recreate without blowing the budget.
This bilingual blogger (and recent new mum) posts about everything from Monday manicures to interior design and fitness as well as what looks she’s currently wearing. Looking for inspiration on how to dress your bump? La Petite Olga should be the first call. Her look, which leans more towards the lifestyle aspect of fashion, is effortless casual chic with a hint of sporty. She includes the brands and links to buy each item to recreate her look. The food section is definitely worth a read, too – pumpkin spice syrup anyone?
This 23-year-old blogger has been posting her latest looks since January 2015. As she’s a young student without a big budget to blow on Chanel handbags and designer clothes, the blog is a great place for some accessible inspiration to keep a trendy wardrobe. Whether big-sleeved tops or metallics are in, Franziska is guaranteed to have ideas on how to wear them. Look at the scrolling Currently Obsessed panel on the right-hand side for an instant fashion pick-me-up.
This blog is an interesting mix of fashion and fitness, sometimes exploring the relationship between the two with topics such as body shaming. In terms of style, Bea focuses on a high-quality, timeless look, often with a practical spin with advice (on topics like layering and how to wear velvet outside of winter). In the fitness section is a series of video workouts divided by body area. It’s tough blending such diverse topics, but Bea makes it look easy, and the result is a readable and inspiring blog.
‘Pink’ is definitely the right word for this fashion-loving Munich duo. Juggling their blog with online marketing jobs, the pair met through their now-ex-boyfriends and have been documenting their fashion loves ever since. Androgynous chic it’s not – the self-proclaimed barbie girls embrace fluffy gilets, Chanel handbags, and plenty of pink. The blog is organised by different looks: sometimes by occasion (such as New Years Eve) and sometimes by fashion item (like the bomber jacket).
Looking for a handbook to feminine style without looking overly girly, Josie Loves is a great place to start. Sarah Eichhorn’s looks are usually divided by season, and her bang-on-trend style has gotten coverage in magazines including Glamour and Grazia – even Coca-Cola name-dropped her. With all her perfect pieces (and links to where she bought them) it’s a great place to go if you’re in need of a wardrobe shake-up and some inspiration.
Blogging since 2009, Fashion Victress Cornelia posts simple, accessible everyday looks. Though her Looks section is fairly mainstream, there are some great recommendations in her Friday Finds, where she’s done the legwork to find some of the most on-trend items. She’s got an eye for photography as well as style, and her blog features beautiful pictures from her recent trips, including to Marrakesh and a picturesque road trip through the south of France. There’s also some great inspiration for day trips and weekend getaways from Munich.
