Street fashion blogs are highways to fashion fanatics from all over the world and fortunately, some have taken on the responsibility of collecting and curating show-stopping looks from cosmopolitan cities to remind us that fashion is a language that needs no translation. Clicking through what seems to be merely pictures, actually engages us in a discourse of what style means to individuals from different cultures.
The DNA of fashion including accessories, shoes, vintage and new items are pieced together in endless variations, and the fashion blogs we highlight in this article will give you a quick but telling account of a new Vogue-vernacular. In many ways, blogging grants us fashion suffrage in a more democratic plane of interpretation in cyberspace as an alternative to relying on the glossies for validation. Many of the bloggers are journalists of their own kind and provide photos with indisputable integrity.
