How to Start a Fashion Blog in 7 Steps
- Define Your Fashion Blogging Goals
- Choose a Fashion Niche
- Pick & Register a Blog Domain Name
- Setup WordPress
- Write & Publish Blog Posts
- Promote Your Fashion Blog
- Monetize & Make Money
1. Define Your Fashion Blogging Goals
The first step to starting a fashion blog is to define your goals.
- What do you hope to achieve with your blog?
- Do you want to build an audience, make money, or both?
- How much time are you willing to commit to blogging?
Your answers to these questions will help determine the direction of your blog and how you can achieve your goals.
Some top fashion bloggers are content with having a small, dedicated following, while others want to grow their blog into a full-time business and make their mark in the fashion industry.
There’s nothing wrong with either approach. It just depends on what you’re looking for.
Your blogging goals will determine :
- How often do you publish new content
- What type of content you create
- How you promote your blog
- How you monetize your blog
If you’re not sure what your goals are, that’s okay. You can always revisit this step later and update your goals as needed.
What is a Fashion Blog?
A fashion blog is a blog that covers the latest trends in fashion, style, and beauty. Fashion bloggers share their personal style, write about new looks and collections, and provide tips on how to wear certain items.
A fashion blog can become a platform where people share their ideas and knowledge about the fashion world. If you are passionate about fashion and style, starting a blog can help you showcase your creativity, connect with like-minded individuals, and potentially earn money.
Why Start a Fashion Blog?
There are many reasons to start a fashion blog.
Some people do it to share their personal style with the world. Others use their blog as a way to connect with like-minded people.
And of course, some start a fashion blog to make money.
Your blog can help you become a fashion influencer. Fashion and style influencers get a lot of perks beyond just money.
Starting a blog can be a fun and rewarding experience, no matter your reason for doing it.
Not only can you express yourself creatively, but you can also connect with people from all over the world.
Plus, if you’re looking to make some extra income, there are plenty of ways to monetize your fashion blog.
Some benefits of starting a fashion blog include:
- Showcase your personal style
- Connect with like-minded people
- Share your fashion tips and advice
- Make money from your blog
If any of these benefits sound appealing to you, then starting a fashion blog might be the right choice.
How Much Money Can You Make from a Fashion Blog?
The median ad income of a fashion blog with 100 posts is $2815 per month. Income will depend on the number of articles you have published, the traffic your blog gets, and how well you monetize your blog. The fashion blog Fit Mommy in Heels made $11,562.19 in a single month.
2. Choose a Fashion Niche
The next step is to choose a specific fashion niche.
Your niche will determine your blog’s focus and target audience.
There are endless possibilities for choosing a fashion niche. But choosing the right niche is essential to your blog’s success.
Why choose a niche?
A niche allows you to focus your content and build an audience around a specific topic.
If you try to cover everything, you’ll end up with a scattered blog that appeals to no one. But if you focus on a specific niche, you can become the go-to source for that topic.
Finding Your Ideal Niche
Here are some factors to consider when choosing a fashion niche:
- What type of fashion do you like?
- What fashion do you know the most about?
- What do you think other people would be interested in?
- What type of fashion do you think is underserved?
- What fashion do you think is missing from the blogosphere?
Your answers to these questions will help you choose the perfect niche for your blog.
Here are some popular fashion niches to help you get inspiration for your own:
- Plus size
- Men’s fashion
- Kid’s fashion
- Sustainable fashion
- Modest fashion
- Boomer style
- Affordable fashion
- Celebrity fashion
- DIY fashion
- Ethical fashion
- Plus-size fashion
- Street style
Examples of Fashion Blogs
Looking at other top fashion blogs can inspire your own ideas. Here are some of the more popular fashion blogs:
This blog is for curvy and plus-size women. It’s written by Tanesha Awasthi, a plus-size model and fashion designer. The site covers a range of topics including fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and fitness.
Fashion Beans is a men’s fashion blog covering the latest trends and styles. It includes articles on everything from streetwear to tailoring and provides tips on how to wear the latest trends.
This blog covers all things fashion. Nadia Boujarwah and Faran Krentcil founded it in 2007. It covers industry news, designer interviews, and trend reports.
College Fashion is a blog about fashion for college students, written by college students. The site includes articles on how to dress for different occasions, how to put together a stylish outfit on a budget, how to mix and match different pieces of clothing, and more.
Check if Your Niche Is Profitable
Once you’ve chosen your niche, it’s important to make sure it is profitable.
The best way to do this is to check if there are already successful blogs in your niche.
If there are, then that’s a good sign that you can make money from your blog as well.
To find popular blogs in your niche, simply do a Google search for “[niche] + blog.” For example, if you’re interested in starting a luxury fashion blog, you would search for “luxury fashion blog.”
Another way to check if your niche is profitable is to see if there are magazines or websites devoted to that topic.
For example, if you’re interested in starting a men’s fashion blog, you would search for “men’s fashion magazine.”
If there are results, then that’s a good sign that there is an interest in that topic and you can make money from your blog.
3. Pick & Register a Blog Domain Name
After selecting your niche, brainstorm a few names for your fashion blog.
It’s recommended to keep your blog’s name to two words (e.g., Hello Fashion). One of the two words should be a keyword from your niche. The other word can be something that makes your website brandable. For example, our blog teaches people how to make passive income, so we have named it Passive Book.
Here are some words you can mix and match into your blog name:
Use a Business Name Generator to brainstorm the name of your fashion blog.
You can also use your own name for your blog. But if you ever plan to sell your website in the future, it is much more difficult to transfer your brand to the buyer when it is your name.
Check Domain Name Availability
After brainstorming names, check if the .com domain name is available.
Domain names are the addresses of websites. For example, the domain name of this website Passive Book is passivebook.com.
You must check if both the .com domain name and the social media handles are available. You can use Namechk to check the availability of both your domain name and social media handles.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when selecting a domain name:
- Choose a .com domain name. 86% of the internet uses .com, so your visitors are likely to try visiting your blog by typing .com. Avoid other extensions like .net or .org.
- Don’t include hyphens and numbers.
- Do not use words with multiple spellings (for example colour vs color).
- Shorter domain names are better. Try to keep it under 12 characters.
- Spelling & Pronunciation should be easy and intuitive.
- It should be easy to remember.
- Avoid words that can be misread together. For example, therapistjohn.com can be read as Therapist John or The Rapist John.
- Make sure it’s not trademarked or copyrighted by someone else. The AI writing software Jarvis.ai had to rebrand to Jasper.ai because Marvel sued them for the Iron Man reference. Lawsuits will happen once your blog is established.
Register a Domain Name
Once you decide your domain name it is time to register it.
You should register your domain with NameCheap because you will get domain privacy for free. Other providers charge $12 per year for domain privacy. Without domain privacy, your name, home & email address will be accessible to the public.
Step 1: Go to NameCheap. Enter your domain name with the .com extension.
Step 2: Select the .com extension and click the Add to Cart button.
Step 3: After adding the domain to the cart, click on the Checkout button.
Step 4: Enable Domain Privacy that comes for free along with auto-renew. You don’t need any other paid addon.
Step 5: Click on Confirm Order. Pay to complete your purchase.
Step 6: Log in to Namecheap and click on Domain List ❶ in the left sidebar and then click Manage ❷ next to the domain you just purchased.
Step 7: Under the Nameservers section, select “Custom DNS” from the dropdown ❶. Then enter the following two nameservers ❷ ns1.bluehost.com and ns2.bluehost.com as shown in the image. Then click the green tick ❸ to save. If you use a hosting provider other than Bluehost, enter their nameserver values in this step instead.
Can I get a free domain name?
Your web hosting provider might give you a free domain name for one year but they charge $12 for domain privacy which is free in Namecheap. From the second year, you will pay for both the domain and privacy which will cost you more than $20+. So it is cheaper to just register your domain with Namecheap from the beginning. Also using different companies for web hosting and domain registration will allow you to easily switch your blog host later without transferring domains.
Can I change the name of my blog later?
You will lose your search engine rankings if you change your blog’s name once it gets links from other websites. It will take as long as a year or more for you to regain the lost traffic. It is possible to mitigate problems by having proper redirects. But you will have to renew both your old and new domains every year. So try to avoid changing your blog’s name once it is established.
4. Setup WordPress
The next step is to get your blog up and running in WordPress. WordPress is a content management system (CMS) that makes it easy to create a fashion blog or website.
Why Choose WordPress.org?
WordPress is open-source software released under the GPL. It is used by millions of people around the world including many large companies such as Facebook, Sony, Disney, The Guardian, Forbes, and The New York Times.
You own your website and data with WordPress.org. You can host your WordPress website on any hosting provider of your choice.
WordPress.org vs WordPress.com
There are two WordPress platforms: WordPress.org and WordPress.com.
WordPress.com is a commercial platform owned by Automattic, the company behind WordPress. It’s a great platform to get started with if you want to create a blog for free. But it has many limitations such as not being able to install plugins, not being able to use a custom domain name, and not having full control over your website.
WordPress.org is an open-source platform that you can download and install on your own web hosting account. It’s completely free to use. You have full control over your website and can install any plugin or theme of your choice.
In this guide, we will be using WordPress.org to create our fashion blog.
Why Avoid Free Blogging Platforms
There are many free blogging platforms such as Blogger, Medium, Tumblr, and Wix. While they might be tempting to use because they are free, we don’t recommend using them for the following reasons:
You Don’t Own Your Data – If the platform decides to delete your blog, all your content will be gone with it. This is more common than you think and you will usually see the following screen.
Limited Functionality & Flexibility – You can not install plugins or themes on most of these platforms, which limits what you can do with your blog.
Not Search Engine Friendly – These platforms are not built with SEO in mind, making it difficult to rank high in search engines.
How much does it cost to start a fashion blog?
It will cost you $2.95 per month to host your WordPress fashion blog in Bluehost. A domain will cost you $12/year. So that is a total of $4.2 per month, which is less than the price of Netflix for all the unlimited features that a self-hosted WordPress blog has to offer.
What to do if you already have a free blog?
If you already have a blog on Blogger, Tumblr, Wix, or any other free platform, we recommend you migrate it to WordPress. You can use an import plugin to easily migrate your existing blog to WordPress.
Install WordPress in Hosting
To install WordPress you need hosting. Hosting is a service that stores your blog’s files on a remote server. This allows other people to view your blog by entering the domain name into their web browser.
For this guide, we will use BlueHost as our web host. It is a cheap hosting that is extremely easy for beginners to set up. If you use any other web host, the steps will be the same but the user interface may be slightly different.
1. Go to BlueHost using this link to get a special discount. Select WordPress > WordPress Hosting from the top menu.
2. Click on the button you see on this page and you will be taken to the pricing section.
3. Select the Basic Plan. You can upgrade to a different hosting plan as you grow.
4. If you already have a domain name that you purchased with Namecheap you can put that in the “Use a domain you own” ❶ section. If you don’t have a domain name yet, choose the “Create a New Domain” ❷ to purchase a new domain.
5. In the next screen, enter your information. Uncheck all package extras. If you purchase your domain through Bluehost instead of Namecheap, you may want to enable Domain Privacy. You won’t see the Domain Privacy option if you bought your domain through Namecheap. Namecheap will give you this Domain Privacy for free.
6. Once you have successfully paid, you will be prompted to set a password. Click on the “Create your Password” button.
7. Enter your password and create your account. If you lose this password, you can reset it.
8. After you set your password, log in to Bluehost.
9. Click on the Create your website button on the following screen. This will start a Bluehost Wizard, just click Skip this step wherever possible.
10. On the following page, click “No help needed” or “Skip this step”. We don’t want Bluehost to limit our customization options.
11. On the next page, you will be asked about the purpose of your website. You can choose from any of the available options.
12. On the next page, click Skip this step.
13. On the following page, enter the blog’s name and tagline. You can change this later so feel free to click “Skip this step” or enter something as a placeholder and click Continue.
14. Finally you will be asked how you want to build your website. Choose “Limitless customization” to have all the options.
15. You can see your blog by going to yourdomain.com. Go to the Bluehost dashboard and click on the My Sites tab ❶ in the left sidebar and click on the “Manage site” button ❷.
16. Your WordPress site has separate login credentials different from the ones you use to log into Bluehost. You can use this to log in to the WordPress dashboard directly without logging into Bluehost. To get this:
❶ Click on Users on top.
❷ You will be able to see your username and email that you can use to log in to WordPress.
❸ If you click on the three dots you will see the option to Reset your password. ❹
You can log into WordPress from the Bluehost dashboard by clicking the Log in to WordPress button ❺. But it is not recommended you rely on this as your primary login method because you will get locked out of your site if you ever change hosting providers.
17. You will be taken to the WordPress dashboard where you can reset your password ❶. If you don’t like the username Bluehost created for you, you can Add a New User ❷.
18. If you are adding a new user make sure you specify the user role as Administrator ❶. You can log in as the new user and safely delete the default user created by Bluehost.
Congratulations! You have successfully set up WordPress.
Now that you have the basic version of WordPress installed, it is time to customize it to make it look and feel the way you want.
Login to WordPress Dashboard
Visit yourdomain.com/wp-admin to access the WordPress dashboard.
The WordPress Dashboard is the control center for your WordPress site. It contains all the tools and information you need to manage your site.
Use the Email and Password you provided during installation to log in to your WordPress dashboard. If you don’t have a password, use the “Lost your password?” to generate a new password.
Install WP Themes
A WordPress theme is a collection of files that determines the look and feel of your website. It includes the design, layout, colors, typography, and images.
Your new WordPress blog will be installed with a default blog theme that doesn’t look very great.
To install a new WordPress Theme:
Go to Appearance > Themes > Add New in your WordPress dashboard.
Use the search to find a theme that you like ❶. Before you install the theme, you can see a demo of the theme and learn about its features from the preview screen ❷. If you like the theme, you can install it by clicking the install button ❸. You can also upload a theme from a file on your computer ❹.
Once installed, click the Activate button to enable the theme.
While there are thousands of free themes available, we recommend using a premium theme.
Premium themes not only reduce your website’s load time but also offer unlimited customization possibilities.
We recommend the following premium themes:
While there are themes custom-made for fashion blogs, they tend to be bloated with poor code that slows down your website’s performance. We suggest using one of our recommended themes for a fast website with unlimited customization possibilities.
Install WP Plugins
A WordPress plugin is a piece of software that extends the functionality of WordPress. It can be as simple as adding a contact form to your website or as complex as an e-commerce store.
The WordPress plugin directory has over 55,000 plugins available, with millions more available from third-party websites.
Too many wordpress plugins can slow down your blog site. So before you install new plugins, it will be worth clearing out any existing plugins that your hosting provider installed by default.
Plugins first need to be deactivated before they can be deleted.
❶ Go to WP Admin > Plugins > Installed Plugins
❷ Click on the checkbox to select all plugins.
❸ Select Deactivate from the drop-down.
❹ Click Apply.
❺ Repeat the above steps but select “Delete” instead of “Deactivate” from the dropdown in ❸ to delete all the deactivated plugins.
To install new plugins go to the WP Admin > Plugins > Add New.
On the plugins page:
❶ Search for the plugin you want in the search bar
❷ Click Install Now. Once you install the plugin, you must also activate the plugin for it to be enabled.
❸ If you are installing a paid plugin you can upload the plugin instead.
There are many different plugins that you can install, but here are the ones which we recommend:
A WordPress Backup Plugin helps you automatically create backups of your WordPress site. This way, if something goes wrong (such as a hack or other issue), you can easily restore your site to its previous state.
These plugins help you optimize your website for search engines. They do this by adding various settings and options to your website that help you improve your website’s rank in search engine results pages (SERPs).
Recommended Plugin: RankMath (paid).
Google Analytics Plugin
A WordPress analytics plugin is a tool that helps you track your website’s traffic and performance. This way, you can see how well your website is performing and what changes you need to make to improve your traffic and conversions.
A WordPress Cache Plugin helps improve the performance of your website by caching its content. This way, visitors will see a cached version of your website instead of waiting for it to load all of its content.
Recommended Plugin: WP Rocket (paid).
Page Builder Plugin
A WordPress Page Builder is a plugin that allows you to create custom pages and posts without coding.
Recommended Plugin: Thrive Architect (paid).
A WordPress Security Plugin helps you secure your website from hackers by offering features such as two-factor authentication, malware scanning, and login lockdown.
Recommended Plugin: Wordfence (free).
Social Media Plugin
A WordPress Social Share Plugin allows you to easily share your website content on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. You can add social media buttons to your website so visitors can share your content with their friends and followers.
Recommended Plugin: Easy Social Share Buttons (paid).
Once you have installed your theme and plugins, it is time to customize the wordpress blog platform:
Change Colors, Fonts & Spacing
You can set the font, colors, and spacing by going to Appearance > Customize in your WordPress dashboard. Premium themes like GeneratePress allow you to customize every aspect of your blog.
Check out our Blog Fonts & Typography guide to choose the right font and typography settings for your blog.
Add Your Logo
Get a logo designed for your blog from Fiverr. Then set the logo of your blog by going to Appearance > Customize in your WordPress dashboard. A logo is not required for a successful blog but it can definitely help appeal to your target audience.
Favicon is the image that appears in the browser tab and bookmarks. Set the Favicon from the Appearance > Customize section of the WordPress dashboard.
The header and the footer menu can be set from the Appearance > Menus in your WordPress blog dashboard.
You can nest menu items so that it appears as a dropdown menu ❶. You can use the menu as your primary or secondary navigation menu ❷. Don’t forget to save your menu ❸.
If you have a sidebar, you can add widgets to it. Go to Appearance > Widgets in your WordPress admin dashboard.
Check out the list of the most useful Blog Widgets and how to add them to your blog.
Set Title & Tag Line
The next step is to change your General Settings. Go to Settings > General in the WordPress Admin area.
You can set your Site Title, Tagline, and Time Zone from this screen.
The ideal URL structure for SEO is yourdomain.com/sample-post. Set your permalink structure by going to Settings > Permalinks in your WordPress blog dashboard.
Select the “Post name” radio button and save changes.
Enable Search Visibility
Chances are you want your blog to show up on Google so people can find you. Go to Settings > Reading in your WordPress dashboard.
To get search engine traffic, ensure the checkbox “Disable search engines from indexing this site” is Unchecked. You can find this option in Settings > Reading. Most of the time this should be unchecked by default but if it is not, then uncheck it to ensure your site gets traffic from search engines.
Adjust Comment Settings
Next, you will want to change the Discussion Setting (aka Comments). Go to Settings > Discussion in your WordPress admin area.
❶ You may want to enable or disable comments on this page. You can also disable pingbacks and enable comment moderation.
❷ You can also set comment approval settings.
