Reader Favorites: 15 Budget Friendly Fashion Bloggers

We all need a little fashion inspiration every now and then—especially during this time of the year when the weather outside is still frightful, yet the only thing we can talk about is our (non-existent) spring wardrobe. The snow will end and we’ll all finally be able to wear shorts again, we promise! 

So, yesterday on Instagram we asked which bloggers you turn to when you need a quick dose of fashion and style creativity. While we all love Leandra and Blair, let’s be honest—most of us can’t afford those designer wardrobes. Luckily, there are plenty of bloggers with amazing, budget friendly style worth following. And you proved it to us by gushing over these amazing ladies (many we hadn’t seen before, so thank you)!  

Whether these ladies have a major social media following or are just starting out, to make our below list these bloggers needed to have budget friendly, real woman style. Admittedly, it was hard for us to choose. But we narrowed it down to these top 15 picks; enjoy a little fashion inspiration today!

Patrice, Looking Fly on a Dime 

Patrice doesn’t mess around when it comes to budget friendly style. She set a goal to only spend $200 on clothes for an entire year. It’s no wonder she’s been featured on sites like for her savvy tips. 

Jean, Extra Petite

We saw Jean’s name pop up time and time again for her affordable, petite style. We love how helpful her tips are when it comes to petite sizing, not to mention she shoots her indoor photos by herself, on a tripod! (Major talent.) 

Hannah, Champagne Lifestyle

This adorable California budget blogger had us at her blog tagline: Champagne Lifestyle on a Beer Budget. Need we say more? 

Candice Nikeia,

We love this fashion blogger and wardrobe stylist’s feminine-edgy look that she achieves with affordable items from NastyGal, Zara, and ASOS. 

Jessy, Kleidermaedchen

Technically we don’t speak German (so, er…actually reading her blog a bit tricky) but this European blogger has us charmed with her unique, affordable looks.

Kathleen, Carrie Bradshaw Lied 

It was no surprise when we saw Kathleen pop up as a reader favorite! (Hint: You’ve seen her awesome styling tips before–here, and here!)

Kimberly, Penny Pincher Fashion 

Penny Pincher Fashion has become synonymous with style on a budget. Kimberly is known for her closet creativity and her innate ability to stretch her dollars. (And we’re feverishly taking notes.) 

Daniela, Nany’s Klozet

Serious applause to this bilingual, edgy-chic Miami street style blogger, who blogs in both English and Spanish and has some knockout photography to boot. 

Nathalia, The Key Item 

To say we were impressed the first time we visited Nathalia’s blog is an understatement. Not only does this Dominican designer and illustrator have the most useful style tips ever, but her entire site is bilingual, and she offers workshops, too. Mind. Blown. 

Katie, My Traveling Closet

There’s something special about a girl who can wear head to toe H&M and make it look (literally) like a million bucks. Are we right, or are we right? 

Tiffany, The Werk Place

While she does splurge on investment pieces like designer shoes, Tiffany spends the rest of her budget modestly and wisely, opting for pieces from budget favorites like H&M and J.Crew. We love how she educates her readers on where to spend and where to save. 

Courtney, Lifestyled

Hailing from Atlanta, this southern stylist has got some major styling tricks up her sleeve! Her posts are more than just fun to look at, they’ll change the way you see your closet, too! 

Karla Reed, @KarlaReed

Okay, so she’s technically not a blogger, but we’re now officially obsessed with her. (Thanks to our readers!) Karla posts all her thrifty finds on Instagram and styles them with staple pieces for a look that is all her own. 

Rachel, Lovely In LA

This LA plus-size blogger has us swooning with her classic, feminine looks—complete with plenty of beautiful dresses that make us want to twirl! 

Brandi, Run Style Run 

There’s something about Brandi’s style we can’t quite put our finger on. Maybe it’s the incredible vintage finds she lands, or how her looks are the perfect balance of simple and stunning. Whatever it is, she’s good.  

Are you as inspired as we are? Again, thanks for all of your amazing suggestions!
