If you’re anything like us, one of your favorite past times, amongst Netflix bingeing and cake baking, is looking at fashion blogs and borderline-stalking bloggers on their websites and social media accounts for outfit inspo.

This is a great and enjoyable hobby to have, but can be disheartening when all of the bloggers and influencers you follow spend more on a single outfit than you do on clothes in a full calendar year. But style is style, regardless of the price tag or brand, and whether you spend $5 or $500 on sunglasses, fashion is for all of us—and some bloggers are here to help us make look great without spending a full paycheck.

Ready to get all the inspiration (and actually find some pieces you can add to cart?). These bloggers will make sure you never lack outfit ideas again.


1. Jean, Extra Petite

We see 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.)


2. Candice Nikeia

In addition to absolutely stunning photography, Candice Nikeia’s blog is filled with budget-friendly finds and tips on how to style them. If you’re looking for a little inspiration, she also is an expert in manifesting and shares her tips on her blog as well.


3. Ali, A Dash of Details

Ali can make a killer flat layout on her Instagram, and “A Dash of Details” is where we go to find the affordable pieces we need before our next beach vacation. And if you don’t have a beach vacation planned, you certainly will want to after you check out her envy-inducing travels.


4. Kathleen, Carrie Bradshaw Lied

Kathleen’s blog was created out of the realization that post-grad life wasn’t as fabulous as Carrie Bradshaw had led her to believe (even as adults, we’re still trying to solve the puzzle of how Carrie could afford a closet-full of Manolos on a writer’s salary). But looking at her inspiring outfits and picture-perfect lifestyle, you might have to disagree that it is extremely fabulous (except she pulls it all off with affordable pieces and doable outfit ideas).


5. 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.


6. 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.


7. Bethany, Twenty Something Plus

Bethany could be your best friend. She is always laughing in her stylishly affordable outfits and invites her follows to ask her questions and get to know her. Beyond her own (amazing) outfits, she’ll report on our favorite inexpensive brands and designers so we’re always up to date.


8. Rachel, Lovely In L.A.

This L.A. plus-size blogger has us swooning with her classic, feminine looks—complete with plenty of beautiful dresses and styling tips (not to mention that her pictures make us want to pack up and move to L.A.).


9. Jessi, The Darling Detail

At first glance of Jessi’s blog or out-of-this-world Instagram, you’ll immediately notice how well-styled and elevated Jessi’s outfits are—and it turns out most of them are affordable, too. 


10. Anna, The Anna Edit

Anna will be your go-to on all things affordable fashion, beauty, and fitness. Her inspiring layouts and helpful beauty advice always have us coming back for more. And the best part is, her lifestyle is actually doable and her clothes are actually affordable.


11. Patrice, Looking Fly on a Dime

Patrice is a thrifting expert that could make even the most thrifting-averse of us change our minds on a dime (pun intended). She has a knack for styling unique, one-of-a-kind pieces, and we’re taking notes.


12. Daniela, @danixelisa

Daniela Gomez’s style is impeccable—and all of her pieces are found from thrifting. She’ll inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and wear that outfit you think you can’t pull off (you’re wrong!).


13. Jane,

If you’re looking for inspiration for how to achieve that expensive-looking influencer look (without it actually being expensive), you’ll love Jane’s Instagram full of OOTDs.


14. Zaynaro, @zaynaro

Zaynaro is a Nigerian blogger that gives all the inspiration on how to combine pattern, color, and texture seamlessly. She knows what works for her, and give us all the motivation to figure out the same for ourselves.


15. Kasey,

If you’re looking for an excuse to have more fun with your style, Kasey is here to give it to you. Her gorgeous, colorful Instagram is full of out-of-the-box outfits that will make you never want to wear neutrals again.


you don't have to give them up
