Fashion blogs are a great way to peruse the web and find out how “real people” are wearing the latest looks and trends. As the fashion industry becomes more inclusive with an increase in street style influencing fashion designers and editors, black fashion bloggers are rising to the forefront as tastemakers. Yes, we’re all familiar with Solange but there are so many others killing the game in their respective fields.
And what’s even more positive about these individuals of color is that they have a voice– like Shiona Turini who has shown her support for Black Lives matter with painter Kehinde Wiley. Or even Jessica Andrews, who created a Black History project for Elle.
