Style Has No Size
Dutch stylist Edith Dohman started blogging under the title Style Has No Size (or SHNS for short) in 2011 to create a platform for women who wear plus-size clothing. The blog regularly highlights new releases by major fashion brands that are available in diverse sizes, and publishes many other articles that acknowledge and report on topics relating to body positivity.

This globetrotting fashion blog follows its creator, Amsterdam-based Lily Tjon, as she travels around the world (or stays in her home city) while dressed in stunning outfits created by internationally acclaimed fashion houses. Even though Lil’ only started blogging a few years ago, she’s already garnered legions of followers and continues to create accessible content that highlights contemporary developments within the fashion world.
Fashionlista is a community-driven platform that combs through dozens of blogs and Instagram feeds, to gather together the hottest items currently trending on social media. As every item featured on Fashiolista’s feed is linked to external websites, the platform allows users to discover new clothes, then purchase them online. Although their website is currently under development (as of January 2018), Fashionlista will launch a new platform in the near future, that promises to provide fashion lovers with an abundance of on-trend outfit ideas.
After launching CommeDesLeroi in 2008 as a way to share his insights on fashion, travel and lifestyle PR guru Leroy Aznam steadily developed the blog into a popular resource for streetwear connoisseurs. Although CommeDesLeroi frequently includes posts covering men’s lifestyle products and other modern essentials, the blog alsopays special attention towards contemporary trends within streetwear and covers newsworthy stories related to underground music, modern tech and sports.
Mexican stylist Andy Torres started blogging in Amsterdam around 2007 after moving to the Netherlands several years before. Since then, she has amassed an impressive number of followers due to her exemplary sense of style, and worked with many internationally renowned fashion brands including Kipling, Mango and H&M. Although StyleScrapbook’s content still heavily revolves around fashion, the blog now features subsections dedicated to other cultural spheres such as music, travel and food.
Fashionista, blogger and jetsetter Negin Mirsalehi was recently named ‘Influencer of the Year’ at the Revolve awards and currently has well over four million Instagram followers. Negin documents her glamorous lifestyle via an incredibly well-curated website and frequently creates posts about luxurious fashion, beauty and lifestyle items. Almost every post on Negin’s blog is accompanied by a detailed description of each featured item or outfit alongside links to an exclusive, external web shop.
A tax lawyer-turned stylist and photographer named Igrien curates this stunning blog and regularly updates its feed with fashion, beauty and lifestyle tips that are accompanied by gorgeous, almost minimalistic images that wouldn’t look out of place inside a glossy magazine. While the Avantguardian’s photography definitely deserves applause, Igrien’s charming written content also contributes significantly to the blog’s appeal and matches perfectly with the website’s sophisticated tone.
It's strangely satisfying when you go from calling someone your boyfriend for sixteen years, to calling him your fiancée. It feels so grown up (look at me mommy). And I – I'm affianced, engaged to be married, soon to be wife. To those who know me, marriage has always seemed like a traditional act to me, deemed necessary for all but the couple in question. And yet here I am, all smiles for over a week already, in a blissful state that no one has yet been able to break – cliche af. If this corny state goes on for too long, snap me out of it, will ya? Will ya? ❤️❤️❤️ #engaged #isaidyes #💍
This popular, Dutch language blog showcases awesome, on-trend outfit ideas created by the website’s main contributor Roos.
