Presenting menswear fashion news, look-books across a range of styles, accessory and apparel reviews, and grooming and lifestyle advice – it’s no surprise that Menswear Style is one of the leading blogs in its league.
US-born Emily Johnston created Fashion Foie Gras (FFG) as an accessible place for fashion news and daily trend spotting.

Since creating the blog to write about her observations of the fashion industry, Susie has attended many high profile events, securing a front row seat at many fashion shows. Providing readers with an intimate window into her personal experiences and bold personal style, Style Bubble is a haven of well thought-out and intellectual opinion posts.

Raindrops of Sapphire was created by denim lover and self-proclaimed fashion addict, Lorna Burford, to document her style, and love of using accessories as finishing touches. Skilled with keeping her readers engaged with the quality and detail in each of her posts, Lorna updates her audience with a range of her favourite outfits and styles, including materials like velvet, leather, denim and suede.

Olivia Purvis created her blog, What Olivia Did, in 2010 as an outlet to share her personal style and fashion hauls with similar minded women. What started out as a fashion blog has developed into a platform for Olivia to share style reviews, beauty tips, recipes, and interviews with women who inspire her. Many of the breath-taking photographs on her blog are taken by her partner Joseph, an avid professional photographer. Olivia shares inspiration from a number of her most loved brands, including ASOS, Miss Selfridge, Zara, & Other Stories and Topshop.
Carrie Santana da Silva (formerly Harwood) launched WISH WISH WISH when she was seventeen years old, to explore and experiment with her personal style, providing readers with updates on what she wore and sharing fashion inspiration through detailed content and beautiful photography. WISH WISH WISH contains Carrie’s style secrets and fashion tips, and is aimed at on-the-go women with a passion for aesthetics. After recently getting married, Carrie also focuses on wedding planning tips, and how to pull off the perfect wedding abroad.
9. Grey Fox
In a bid to fill a vital gap in the market – a menswear blog aimed at older men (40 and above) – David Evans created Grey Fox in 2011. When fashion insiders were obsessing over producing ranges and content aimed at millennials and the younger generation, David identified that for men over 40, it can be difficult to decide how to dress and what they should be wearing. Grey Fox proves that older men can pull off a variety of fashionable looks – both casual and formal, while promoting British brand and manufacturers, such as Kempadoo Millar, Johnstons of Elgin and Farlows.
New to our blog ranking is Not Dressed as Lamb by Catherine Summers. Created as a side project to document her personal style in the lead up to her forties, Not Dressed as Lamb has now become an outlet to oppose the idea that women of a certain age (40 and above) have to dress a particular way. Catherine decided to show that no matter what age you are, you can still pull off fashionable trends and style. Not Dressed as Lamb provides outfit ideas and tips, bold colours and patterns, and beauty and accessory advice.
