Fashionistas Forever: Shiwangi Vijaywargiya

Fashion blogs have been around since the early 2000s, but today, blogging is a whole new ball game. While fashion blogs are at an all-time high, we can’t argue against the fact that social media platforms like Instagram remain the single largest forum to redirect traffic towards them. If you’re someone who is remotely into fashion and style, chances are you’ve also at some point, done a #OOTD post. Whether you attempt to show off your own style, or are even looking for a little inspiration, bloggers really know their way around, and hence, have such a massive following.
From styling tips to fashion advice, and where to shop to how to get the best deals, fashion bloggers are pretty much The Yellow Pages of this industry. If you’re from Hyderabad (or not), there are some people who know the ins and outs of style and the city, and those are the people who you really need to follow. I mean, when you’re scrolling through your newsfeed wondering what, when and how to wear, these women will be your guardian angels and give you all the inspiration and aspiration you need. Here are 10 Hyderabad-based fashion bloggers you must follow for all the fashion-love you require.

What made you start blogging?

It was just my interest for fashion and the will to share what I do and what/who I am. It gave me a medium to express myself.

People have this misconception that a blogger is usually followed by a camera all throughout…

(laughs) That is such a myth, but I shoot during the weekends and plan my posts well in advance for the coming week. It does take effort to plan though when your dates are fixed with brand/brands.

Tell us about the entire process of planning an upload…

Date – as at times or most times dates are fixed with the brands especially when you are working for a campaign with several other bloggers. But otherwise, you need to plan the time your followers are active on Instagram, looking for engaging captions and keeping pictures edited well in advance.

A quote that defines your sense of fashion…

There are two things that I truly believe in, one is  to never over-dress or under-dress and the second is that fashion is not limited to clothes, it’s in the street, it’s in the air, it’s like a season which keeps flowing.

Describe your blog/insta profile…
