10 Minority Fashion Bloggers You Need Gracing your Timeline

pexels-godisable-jacob-1020488

Posting a black square a few months back, caused a movement in which the social media space was not exempt. Creators and influencers alike were holding the fashion industry and consumers accountable for proper representation of minorities in the industry. Hence the hashtag #diversifyyourfeed emerged, started by stylist Zeena Shah, which encouraged people to broaden their consumption of content from the sea of white, to include more voices of color. One good outcome; an industry that pathologically fell short in diversity is now making strides to amplify and share our stories. Now we are seeing more bloggers of color with innovative and creative perspectives getting the overdue love they deserve.

Lets be honest; we didn’t need a black square to validate the high fashion sense and trendsetting dope content these ladies grace our timelines with daily. From luxury to street to eclectic, there are countless swoon worthy feeds that deserve a follow. In no particular order, here are just a few more creatives your feed may be missing. Scroll down for loads of style inspiration from bloggers you need on your timeline. Give them a follow, not to be performative, but because their undeniable sense of style is changing the game one post at a time.

5 years ago, I read an article entitled “The Tail End” after someone shared it on Facebook. The author laid out the human lifespan (in this case, a 90-year-old human life) visually. He then had the idea to illustrate the same life span but instead of measuring in weeks or days, he chose events like the Super Bowl, the presidential election, trips to the beach, etc. He said that while he was laying out these events, he started to think about those events that occur with less consistency and sometimes less frequency, like how many times we may see our loved ones. For many of us, as we get older, the time we spend with our loved ones decreases drastically. We often times go from seeing our families daily to going off to college, moving away and living on our own. After laying out how many times one may see their family during the 90 year lifespan, the author concluded that many of us have used around 90% of those days already. The article lists three lessons we can take from this: (1) living in the same place as the people you love matters – the closer you are the more time you can spend with each other (2) priorities matter – you have to prioritize time with your family and friends and (3) quality time matters – since we have less time we have to be fully present and make it count. During this time when we are isolating and social distancing, I thought it was timely to share this with you all because everyday (even in isolation) counts! Even if it’s a zoom call, a FaceTime or a phone call, make sure you take the time to connect. I’m sharing the article in my stories and will save in my highlights! ✨
