Start making money from your fashion blog

Many fashion and style lovers dream of owing a successful fashion blog. If you are a natural writer or photographer (or you have a great photographer at your disposable). the dream of having a fashion blog is even stronger. Fashion and Style Police will be 7 years old in a few days and I can’t believe how far this tiny little blog has come. Having my own little corner on the big wide web has always been a dream, and I am glad to see it alive and doing amazing 7 years after I clicked publish on my very first blog post.

I know many people wonder how bloggers make money and I have written extensively about that on the blog here. However this blog post’s focus is on how you can start making money from your fashion blog. So the ideas and tips will be focused on fashion blogging but can also work for other blog niches.

Start making money from your fashion blog

So how do fashion bloggers make money from their fashion blogs? Here are some popular ways they do this –

 

Sell your own products

I know many fashion blogs with their own online store where they sell their items. Some of them are new fashion designers and sell their designs on their blogs. Others sell clothing and accessories from other brand on their blogs. I have played with the idea of doing this on and off for years but I have decided not to for many reasons. However I know many fashion bloggers doing this and making good money from it as a side gig on their blogs. It works if you have a good eye for clothing and accessories that would sell well. It also works if you design lovely items and you get to set your prices which is good.

 

Affiliate marketing

Many fashion bloggers make a decent wage from affiliate marketing. This works by promoting brands and getting a percentage off the sales from your blog. I do this and it works great especially if you readers are buyers. It also works great if you write SEO optimised posts that rank on search engines, that way more eyeballs get to read your blog posts. I make about 1% of my blog income from affiliate marketing so not much for me but every penny counts and I plan to incorporate more affiliate links.

 

Sponsored Posts

This is how I get 95% of my blog income. Sponsored posts is all about brands paying you to write about their products/services and linking back to their websites. Usually the brands/PRs/SEOs come to you once you have an established blog but you can also reach out to them via email and social media. I have a blog coaching service I offer that will help you grow your blog so brands find it attractive enough to spend money on. You can reach out to me via email to hear more about this service. My email address is on the right hand side of the blog.

Social media promotion

Many fashion bloggers also make money from their social media platforms alongside their blogs. Brands do pay them to promote their products and services on their social media platforms. This works if you have a good following and engagement on social media especially Instagram. I get 2% of my blog income from social media promotions.

 

Banner ads

This is another way of making avenue to make money on your blog. It works great for me as well. My banner ads are from WordAds (Wordpres) but there are loads of options available. I also put up banner ads for private clients and they usually pay a better figure. I get 2% of my blog income from banner ads.

 

I make money from other ways thanks to my blog but they are not tied to the blog directly so I have left them out.

Do you have a fashion blog? Any new creative ways you have made money on it this year?

How to be fashionable this autumn

Autumn(or fall like my American friends call it)  is here and the weather has been wet and cold in the north of England where I live. Autumn fashion is one of my favourite fashion seasons. The pieces and accessories in the stores make me want to be play dress up all season long. I love the light layers and ankle booties in vogue this season. Autumn is a season to be fashionable. However, the question for many remains – how to be fashionable this autumn? Here are some fashion and style tips you may find very handy this season –

Invest in an oversized bag

I am a huge bag lover and I like my bags oversized so they can fit in all I need for the day. Especially when I am out of the house for hours. I have not shopped for a bag in ages but I plan to invest in 1 this autumn and it is definitely going to be an oversized bag as they are trendy and handy to have on the arm.

 

Cinch the waist with a belt

The easiest way to draw attention to your waist is to cinch it with a waist belt. You can put a waist belt over a top, shirt, coat, sweater and pretty much anything else. It is a timeless accessory and it will definitely add some style to an autumn look.

 

Add some shimmer and shine

I love adding some sparkle to my look especially for important events. Sequin is on trend this autumn so you can happily add some shimmer and shine to your outfit this season. I am looking forward to making this most of this autumn trend. It is one of the easiest way to look fashionable if you know how to mix and match the right pieces with accessories.

Pointed shoes

This autumn season footwear is all about the pointed toe heels. It is a great way to look fashionable instantly. Thankfully, I have a few in my wardrobe already, and I am looking forward to wearing them this season.

 

Light Layering

The best part of autumn fashion for me is the fact that I can layer lightly. I love being able to wear a top and a blazer or cardigan. It is easy to look fashionable when you have the right layers on. The light layering trend is for comfort as well as style.

Transition Your Wardrobe from Summer to Autumn With These Key Pieces 

The hot summer is nearly over and we will soon be returning to the crisp cold that we know so well – I couldn’t be more excited. Who doesn’t love cosy nights by the fire, snuggled up under a pile of blankets? A change in season obviously means a change in wardrobe, but if you don’t have the money to completely overhaul your wardrobe this autumn, don’t worry, here are a few key pieces that I always invest in to get my outfits winter ready. You can save even more on your winter staple items with voucher codes for Pretty Little Thing and get savings of up to 30% off. 

 

Winter Coats to the Ready 

If I could only purchase one new item for the autumn season, it would have to be a new coat. I have so many already it is beginning to become a problem but each year, there is a new style of coat in trend that I know I just have to have. It’s not exactly a purchase I should feel guilty for, think of all the colds I have prevented by having such a wide coat variety.  At the moment, this stone waterfall coat is what I am grabbing. It is perfectly light for the current summer-ish weather but keeps me from getting chilly when the sun goes down.

Bring on the Autumn with a Blazer 

If all of your coats are too heavy for the not-yet freezing autumn weather but you still need that extra cover up from the cold wind, a blazer is your new best friend. I think my blazers have to be my most reached for items in my wardrobe – not to mention they’re so on-trend right now. For a perfect autumn night out look, I buy a blazer one or two sizes bigger than I am, put a belt around it and make it into a blazer dress. I am so in love with the look. This oversized white blazer is both the perfect substitute for a coat and large enough to make it into a dress when I fancy it!

Back to Basics with a Black Bodysuit 

If you are looking for a chic, staple top to wear all through autumn, a black high neck bodysuit is the one. This item is so cheap but well worth investing in – it literally goes with anything. I wear this under a strappy dress for a cute day look or pair the bodysuit with some cigarette trousers and heels for a smart/ casual evening look. The high neck is perfect for keeping you warm when the temperatures get colder.

Switch it up with a Maxi Skirt 

Skirts are one of my favourite fashion pieces and I have always found them a lot more flattering on my body. However, I am always reluctant to wear them in autumn and winter in case my legs get cold. But I have recently discovered that Midaxi ribbed skirts are the perfect solution, with the combination of a midi and maxi skirt being the ideal  length to show a bit of ankle whilst not risking getting cold. This amazing skirt find means I can switch up my jeans for a more feminine look whilst not compromising on warmth. This one from Pretty Little Thing is perfect- it has a ribbed effect making the skirt thicker and warmer and the skirt is elasticated making it super figure hugging!

With these four staples, your autumn wardrobe is pretty much sorted! I obviously supplement with a few additions when I need to and but these are your core pieces, vital for keeping you chic all winter. 

How are you making the wardrobe transition from summer to autumn?
