How to actually do it: "Figure out your go-to, foolproof looks," says designer Nanette Lepore, then seek out variations on that theme. Stumped? Picture the outfits that you feel most comfortable in. Or ask people close to you what you look best in. Once you've zeroed in on what works, find different takes.

"Whenever you feel the need to talk yourself into things, that's a red flag that you shouldn't buy them," says Minkoff.

Aside from the graphic design, ensure that you have a method of accessing images worthy of your fashion blog. To do this you may need to reach out to local designers and boutiques, as well as nationwide and global brands, to secure copyright free images.

In fact, many fashion bloggers use themselves as the main model sporting the fashions they blog about.

Multi-layered and complicated ensembles are the best way to create ideal casual combinations.

“I wish people understood that in fashion less is more. For example, if you are wearing an off-the-shoulder top, make that your focal point. You don’t need anything else.
