Strange Ambition is a blog by Bonnie Strange, which beautifully captures Berlin’s edgy and experimental side. Her style is playful, outrageous, and risqué in a way that speaks so eloquently for this city’s distinct sense of fashion.

Her writing is sassy and filled with colloquialisms, which only serves to further capture Berlin’s ultra casual vibe and aesthetic. Follow Strange Ambition on Twitter at @Bonnie_strange.
my berlin fashion
For those looking for a bit of vintage-specific inspo, ‘my berlin fashion’ is the place to go. The girl behind the blog is Jasmin Fatschild, and she started it at the mere age of 15. It has since received attention from Refinery 29, Elle, and Glamour. Today, much of Jasmin’s fashion content is intertwined with travel, resulting in a visual feast of style and intrigue. This blog offers an authentic look at the global fashion scene through the lens of a Berliner. Follow Jasmin on Instagram at @myberlinfashion.
Berlin is all about the street style, so it only makes sense that its leading fashion bloggers would focus here. Glam Canyon in particular hones in on the everyday styles of Berliners passing by on the streets, which makes for awesome look-books that are honestly quite addicting. Sometimes it’s nice to reaffirm what we already know: namely, that Berlin has got the looks. A documentary photographer by trade, Katja Hentschel is the one who makes it all possible, and she photographs everyone herself. Follow her on Instagram at @glamcanyon.
