Chicago offers so many great things — food, culture, art, music…you name it, we have it in abundance. But do you know what else we have? Quite the abundance of stylish blogger babes, with a unique style worth copying over, and over, and over. And we want to introduce you to the best of them!
We put together a list of Chicago’s best fashion bloggers that are owning the style game like no other, and telling us all about it. Our list was curated based on sartorial perfection because — let’s be honest — nothing else matters 😉 So jump right in and let us introduce you to 10 Chicago fashion bloggers that will give you fashion FOMOs all the time. Oh, and step aside NYC, cause Chi-town is about to own it.
Ceta Walters of Clark & Stone
With a closet full of sought-after brands like Chanel, Valentino and Christian Louboutin, and collaborations with designers like Rebecca Minkoff under her belt, you would never guess that this fashion blogger is also a mother of two (super adorable) sons. Naming her blog after her children – Clark and Stone – Ceta Walters combines high-end with low-end creating of-the-moment looks that are perfect for any age. Her backdrop is often the gorgeous streets of Chicago and her photos and style are to die for. Follow Ceta on Instagram and see what we mean.
Ali Stone of Those White Walls
Fashion photographer-turned-blogger, Ali Stone is the ultimate social media goals. With beautiful imagery – featuring a neutral and cohesive aesthetic that we adore – and re-creatable looks that are equally as comfortable as they are stylish, it’s safe to say that this fashion blogger is on the up-and-coming. Follow Ali on Instagram.
Monika Pardala of Chicago in Stilettos
Monika’s Instagram account is something out of a chic and minimal fashion dream. Her svelte figure is almost always in jeans, perfectly style with a good tee, an impeccable shoe and Monika’s signature hat. It is another very fashionable mom of two, whose blog, Chicago in Stilettos, is a style diary mixed with photos that inspire. It really is a blog worth bookmarking, we promise.
Blake of Blake Von D
This super fashionable attorney is the epitome of cool. Mixing bright colors, high-low ensembles and always a perfect beauty look, Blake is one of those bloggers once you discover you can’t look away. Her Instagram account is perfectly curated with style posts, wanderlust and the occasional decor inspo. In other words, a must follow. Become a VonDee by following her musings.
Thida Lertsburapa of That Girl Gick
With more than 50K Instagram followers, Thida Lertsburapa is a fashion blogging queen of Chicago. Not only are her clothes worthy of more than one heart-eye emoji – think head-to-toe Chanel and handbags from Gucci and YSL – but with a baby on the way we couldn’t be more excited to see how this chic babe decks out her expecting daughter (did someone say Dior booties?). Before you follow take this WARNING: Her Instagram will give you serious fashion FOMO.
Desiree Velasquez of Fashionlingual
This blogging babe proves that fashion has no language barriers. Fashionista Desiree Velasquez is a Puerto Rican living in Chicago, who also spent a few years in Spain. She posts affordable and trendy ensembles featuring captions in both English and Spanish. And while her looks may appear to cost a fortune, all of her pieces come from price conscious retailers such as Zara, ASOS and Tibi. Follow her adventures on Instagram and see what we mean.
Elina Casell Hjalmarsson of Elina Casell
We’ve been style-crushing on Elina for some time now, because this gorgeous mama knows a thing or two about style. She is not only a fashion blogger but a fashion and handbag designer as well. Elina lives in Chicago via Sweden and her style encompasses that crisp Scandinavian style. She is a master mixer of high and low fashion, and a typical outfit for her includes Zara jeans, over-sized Maje sweater, YSL pumps or rag & bone booties, all topped with a moto jacket. Her Instagram is filled with tons of fashion inspo so be sure to follow her there.
Charlotte of MilknHonee
“Africa birthed me, Canada raised me, Chicago adopted me,” writes Charlotte, the blogger behind this super inspiration fashion and lifestyle blog. Charlotte is a mother of two, whose style is a sweet combination of minimalistic finds (think cool jeans and white kicks), the occasional pop of color and a flare of African culture. And if you follow her on Instagram, you’ll get a glimpse of her adorable little girls. Just look at this little nugget 🙂
Marija Krosnjar of Sportsanista
This unique blog combine’s Mary’s love of fashion and self-proclaimed sports obsession. Her style epitomizes that and her looks are affordable and accessible. She describes her style as “business lady by day – hipster by night,” and we can’t get enough of her. Check out her awesome Instagram too for a lot more style inspo!
Anna Baun of A Lily Love Affair
This super chic lady is a corporate director by day and a super fashionista by night. We love her because she is as obsessed with Chicago as we are (duh, how can you not!?) and her style is truly an all-American girl chic. She is a master mixer of plaid, stripes and floral, plus you’ll find her in girly lace dresses and bold colors. What’s not to love, right? Follow Anna’s fashion musing on her Instagram.
