Things you might not be aware about being a fashion blogger
If you have just a little bit of passion in you to becoming a fashion blogger, then you should know how competitive the line is. Even the experienced ones have to come up with a method to lure in audience who read their posts online with a lot of dedication.
 It is a good way to keep check on the rivals and learn how they are working on their blogs for getting results. So, going for the best in the fashion blogging world is not a new thing. We dug out a number of things that you might not know about fashion blogging and bloggers. These will let you be aware of a unique side and tactics of the famous fashion bloggers while offering you a quick tip on how to be successful when there is so much competition in this field.
Finding a unique idea:
Most fashion bloggers are successful because they have something unique for their audience. You got to let your freaky flags fly in order to attract readers. Every successful fashion blogger has a reason behind her blog. Plus, the reason ought to be a compelling one. Difference in perception, method, and innovative approach is important to make the world curious of your fashion sense tips and guide.
Targeting your audience:
Most successful fashion bloggers have a target in mind. If you keep writing posts and do not care about the response from your fellow readers then your efforts will be futile. In addition, you do not even have to cover up the whole fashion world. Pick a few favorite fashion trends that you have good knowledge about and express yourself to the fullest for your audience. Engage with them and see how they respond to you in return. Paying attention to them is important which will help you target your audience better. You can occasionally or periodically look forward to their inquiries and learn about what they want to read.

Posting pictures:
Fashion blogging without pictures is somewhat empty. Just think of a beautiful dress you are explaining in your blog. If you do not have a picture of such a dress, then your readers my feel frustrated as the blog post might not offer full description without a clear image. While adding pictures to the blog is important, you can practice other tricks used by famous fashion bloggers as well. For instance, publishing a collection on Pinterest or Instagram would be a great way to promote your creativity on the web. Success requires expanding of your premises to bring in people who can appreciate your work. So, do that.
Never compromising with the content quality:
The ultimate success behind being a successful fashion blogger is high-quality content. The best of the best know this thing, which is why they are famous today and are making millions. Keeping the content optimized for the search engines lets the posts be more visible to the audience which are then able to find you easily. If you have a good fashion sense, but lack the talent to write hire someone who can write it for you. A confusing post will decrease your traffic. So, why block the path to becoming a successful fashion blogger?
Being original.
While it is good to research and take tips from various successful fashion blogs, it is not a good move to copy their ways and ideas. You got to prove your worth by being original if you want maximum success. Even the big names in the fashion blogging world had once researched other blogs to come up with ideas. But, if they just gave up there and copied existing blog ideas, they might not have been this successful today. Originality is an important aspect that most newcomers in the fashion blogging world miss. So, avoid that and try to come up with your own idea after researching.
Many new fashion bloggers are unaware of such things which could help them become more successful otherwise. Following one or several of them could be the key behind their inevitable success in the world of fashion. It is all about expressing through the right approach. And, readers will surely approach you for learning more about your fashion sense for them.

Guest Post by RebelsMarket: 15 Staples in Punk Clothing

Punk rock clothing staples alternative fashion Mohawk rebels market goth emo scene grunge rockabilly psychobilly glam inspiration outfit

Punk rock has been around for decades though the roots remain the same. Whether you’ve been punk for years or want to just adopt the punk rock fashion, there are always going to be staples that you must have to achieve the overall look and feel of punk fashion. (You can check out some of my punk-inspired outfits here and here)

Patches.
Patches may not seem like much, but they are one of the major staples in any punk wardrobe. Whether they’re ironed on, sewn on, or attached with safety pins, they add color, life, and an overall voice to the appeal of punk rock fashion.
Punk rock patches can range from the anarchy symbol to some of your favorite bands; they are a definite statement piece.

DIY accessories or clothing.

Do it yourself has always been a staple statement in punk rock fashion. Whether you make your own accessories such as necklaces, rings, belts, or jackets or you make your own pants or shirts; it’s a labor of love that helps to create this edgy fashion.

Jeans. 
Skinny Jeans and comfort go hand in hand with punk fashion. Whether they’re baggy or tight, they’re a definite must-have, especially when you layer on a few patches or spikes.

Vest.
Vests may not seem very punk rock before they’ve seen the hands of the punk him or herself, but, they’re definitely a staple. If you aren’t a fan of a plain vest, get some fabric paint and unleash your inner creativity, sew on some patches, or use some spikes to roughen up the look.

Spikes.
Spikes, studs, anything metal that can be easily attached to the outfit are a definite staple in punk fashion. While they may seem a little abrasive at first, they definitely create interest on most punk accessories.

Chains.
Chains are extremely useful with punk fashion, they can be worn as belts, dangle at your hip, or can be used as jewelry. They help to once again create a rough edge to the punk rock outfit.

Jewelry.
Jewelry may seem overrated for punks, but, more often than not you’re going to see them wearing leather or spiked wrist cuffs, plugs in their ears, body jewelry, skull necklaces, or an array of other jewelry accessories that help to create a cohesive look.

Vinyl.
Alternative materials such as vinyl lend themselves well to punk fashion, especially for female punks who want to wear something a little more feminine with a bite to it.

Leather.
Leather can be found in almost all aspects of a punk outfit, from accessories to jackets or boots, leather is by far one of the biggest staple materials you will find.

Band T-shirts.
Sporting band T-shirts is definitely key to punks, especially when they’re supporting their favorite bands. While they may not always wear them true to their nature, and may create something a little more DIY from their band T-shirts, they’re a major component to punk fashion.

Pants.
While jeans and pants can be argued as the same thing, that couldn’t be further from the truth. While jeans are a form of pant, they are their own entity. Punk pants usually refer to do it yourself pants or Franken pants. They’re stitched together from parts of pants long past, creating a visually interesting look.

Skirts.
Skirts, especially for the female punks, are a definite staple for punk rock culture. Whether they’re short or tight, there are several different shapes of edgy skirts to flatter just about any body type out there. Remember, anything can be made to have that punk rock edge to it, don’t shy away from a skirt because it doesn’t first scream “punk”, and make it that way.

Comfortable shoes.
Comfort is key with punk fashion, unless you are talking about accessories or the weight of metal. While you may be weighted down by spikes and patches, you’re going to want to have something comfortable to wear on your feet. Breaking in a new pair of shoes is great, but the grungier and well loved they look, the better.

Wristbands.
Wrist bands, whether they be thin strips or thick chunky wrist bands are a bold fashion statement for punks. They can either be useful such as a thick leather strapped watch or more decorative like a spiked wristband. They are definitely an eye-catching accessory commonly found worn by lovers of punk rock.

Fishnets. 
Predominantly worn by the women, fishnets are a great staple punk rock clothing item. They can be worn by men or women, and are often times seen at live shows because they promote staying cool while in the midst of the pit.

Guest post: How to be cool and confident (by Tracey Clayton)

I always wanted my blog to be something more than an ordinary fashion blog. I want to really inspire people and help them grow, and maybe one day share my journey. But for now, it’s not really possible since I don’t have enough time to devote to writing. Luckily, I have great guests such as Tracey Clayton, who’s willing to share some words of advice with you, this time on how to be cool and confident:

Ok, since you’ve already browsed the internet hoping to find tutorials that will help you become cool and confident, it’s clear you need to do some soul searching which will help you understand you are all that but you simply don’t know it yet!

The socially accepted and preferred modules of behavior considered “cool” and “confident” support various (fashion) movements, all depending on the current celebrity climate and trend endorsements. This is why you need to work on building your own style that’ll be timeless, and that will make you feel good regardless of the popular buzz.

What do I do to get in a place where I am okay with who I am?

It may sound a bit corny but, once you become comfortable with who you are, only good things will come your way. The way we feel about ourselves is the energy we send onto the world and it’s ultimately the way people feel (about) us.

Figuring out who you are is a never-ending journey but setting basis of your personality is the key. Think about what you inherently like, dislike, what feels good, what doesn’t… Think about a person you want to become, what you’d want your life to turn into and work towards achieving it. We are all easy to fall under other people’s influences and waste years thinking we are enjoying something when, actually, we are personally so far from it.

For instance, you’ve got a friend who is popular and, to make him like you, you pretend you like all the same things they do. However, once you realize you can have your own voice and love what you love without having to apologize for it to anyone. You’ll quickly become confident and break loose of all the meaningless relationships around you, consequently finding people that are actually your match. And, most importantly – you’ll be at peace with yourself.

What’s the trick to keep things cool?

There’s nothing cooler than being comfortable in your own skin or working towards becoming the person you want to be. Your personality and tastes are an entire universe of possibilities, so explore them! Build your fashion sense, your music preferences, your science interests, your movie likes – everything! You’ll quickly get in a place where you can say “I know who I am, therefore – I am cool”.

What never hurts is to find that one piece of accessorize/interest that will single you out from the rest. Whether those are the amazing pair of Dragon sunglasses that support your newfound
edgy style, wearing that orient-inspired leather choker or doing yoga in the park every morning at 5AM – it’s entirely up to you.

What if nobody accepts me for who I am?

Oh, darling – fright not! The worst case scenario is that you won’t be spending time with the “popular crowd” but that doesn’t mean you are worse than them; it only means you’ve found your inner voice that challenges the mundane and rises beyond the known and usual. In time, you will learn that all of your traits will be celebrated by people who actually understand, love and support them. And until that happens – stay your amazing self, keep working on figuring out your persona and love the beautiful journey ahead of you.

Is there a formula to staying confident and cool forever?

Yes, absolutely. The formula is loving yourself for everything that you are. Simple as that. Fact is – we are all more critical towards ourselves than others are and we tend to put ourselves down for no apparent reason. Rise above that and learn to be the person you’d want to be hanging with. Channel your thoughts and, until you finally believe it – keep repeating this to yourself – you are amazing, you are beautiful, you are worthy.
