Most successful fashion blogs follow a particular theme or angle. Some narrow their field to one : type of fashion item e.g. shoes, handbags or denim. Some specialise in a particular price point usually either very high-end or very budget conscious. Some cover celebrity fashion exclusively, while others cover street style. Some cover a mix of two or more of these topics. Many show the authors own personal style and asks for the readers opinion
