What up, Argentine fashionistas? These six bloggers will tell you what’s up. With them, you’ll have it all: what to wear on the street in Buenos Aires, what to strut at the city’s clubs, what’s hot, and what’s not. Argentina’s fashion scene is distinctive, in part because the country lacks most major international brands. So what do fashionistas do? They play around, create, invent, and re-purpose – making Argentina uniquely fashion-forward. These six bloggers are a must-follow for the best in style advice.

Lulu Fernandez’ blog, The Lady Posh, keeps tabs on the cool set in Argentina.

Her blog and social media presence, particularly on Facebook and Instagram, reflect that. So does her style.
Fernandez also travels frequently (check out her travel tab) and has a video presence. Here’s a video from her YouTube channel on how to combine colors based on the season.
The fashion blog Muy Mona is actually the work of two Argentine journalists and long-time friends, Constanza Crotto and Mariana Gándara. The project exists “to convey that fashion is about having fun, playing around, and just because you don’t have money doesn’t mean you can’t look good,” they write in Spanish. “It requires creativity and aspiration.” Muy Mona highlights local designers and is a great place to check if you’re looking for shopping ideas in Buenos Aires. Follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
