15 more sarcastic tips to become a popular fashion blogger

Last Updated on December 15, 2021

To celebrate 100 followers on Bloglovin (thank you!), I've written a continuation of one of Dressful's most popular posts: 20 sarcastic tips to become a popular fashion blogger.

1. Be model pretty.

2. ... Better yet, be a model.

3. Stand pigeon-toed in outfit photos and pose with your head tilted at a 45 degree angle.

4. Post outfits composed entirely of gifted pieces.

5. Wear pieces you wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole if they weren't gifted.

6. Wear the same pieces as all other fashion bloggers to show off your unique personal style.

7. Add 3 to 5 (same) links to your blog below an annoying spam comment. (by Eva from Fashionista's Diary)

8. "Curate" your clothes collection. If you don't know what that means (and who really does?), use the verb "curate" extensively whenever you talk about fashion.

9. Lots of fringe on your bag, jacket sleeves and pants. When in doubt, add more.

10. Adopt a "French chic" / gamine / garçonne minimalist look.

11. Re-create (copy) outfits worn by popular fashion bloggers. Tweet them the link to the post.

12. Always wear the same make-up. Five bonus points if it doesn't suit your facial features, your outfit and/or the time of the day.

13. Boast around wearing your Alexander McQueen skull ring. (by Elisa from Style Bizarre) – Ditto YSL Arty rings.

14. Use a cute fluffy animal as an accessory in outfit photos.

15. When they're doing a feature on your style, list at least one piece from a collaboration you did with whatever brand as "must-have".

  1. It's a shame because those YSL rings were actually pretty interesting, but then again there is a huge difference (at least where I live) in what's popular on the internet vs real life. And I suppose the more famous ones are model pretty--because let's face we all like to look at pretty people. It's like don't hate the karadashians or the jersey shore kids, if people didn't find them interesting they wouldn't be popular!

  2. hahah, the best! Fringe - check (for me)..
    I remember last season Garance had a post with instructions on 'how to get your photo taken by a street-style photographer'. And it had all the wrong points stated, eg. be sure to wear the latest 'must-have' accessory. What I want to say is, there are tons of blogs out there, and yes you can make fun of them, and the stuff they have in common, but for me, the worst is when a street-style photographer/blogger/whatever, who should promote different types of style, shares with their (big) audience, advice with what to wear if you want to be photographed, which is, again, a total antimony.
    Let them be, wear what they want, I am going to say!

  3. I did the skull ring! I dig fringe too... but not for "fashion". This is pretty funny, specially the giveaways one! I must say the most annoying pose is blowing kisses and doing weird signs with your hand over your eyes.


  4. So true. I actually started out wanting to dress like at the popular blog peoples then found lesser known blogs with real individual style. Needless to say I'll be 'curating' my closet with whatever I see as cool! Thanks for the great post and laughs!

  5. Hilarious!! I have to agree with most of what you wrote. So tired of seeing people looking down at the shoes like they're continually searching for gold down there. At the same time, we are a society filled with trendsetters that goes hand in hand with the trend followers. We're played both rolls at one time or the other. http:romeostyle.com/

  6. Hahaha! I love your blog, it's really readable and approachable the way you write. This post is so true. Add to it the fact most famous fashion bloggers / lookbookers seem to have a professional photographer friend who follows them around like paparazzi. Best I have is self-timer.

  7. This is really funny and so true! all the fashion blogs that I have come across have almost all the things that you said! Thank you for posting!!! xo

  8. this is hilarious i have to agree with what you write here.
    wear the latest trend, blog about the latest campaign-collaboration-trend, post as many outfit pics u can.
    aren't they tired?

  9. hilarious...though I don't agree with the small fluffy animal as an accessory. I have a small fluffy animal, she has shown up in my pictures, not as an accessory but because she is the cutest thing in the entire world. She is cuter than your small fluffy animal and I want to throw it in your face that you will never obtain a cuter animal than her (sarcasm combined w/ some hint of truth)! I also might be borderline obsessed with taking pictures of her cuteness....

  10. Im a fashion blogger (on the side :) and this is the funniest ish I've I read all month! But you forgot something...that Arty YSL ring!

  11. I have another one. Leave comments on old posts hoping that someone will actually scroll all the way down and see your link. The jab at the "pigeon toes" is so funny. Glad I am not the only one noticing this bird feet phenomenon.

  12. This is by far the best blog I have come across the last weeks (thanks to the lovely Eva on fashionistas-diary)! Your have a great funny style of writing I will definatly be a regular
