How To Write Fashion Articles Without Losing Your Mind

It seems that deep within every woman, there is an ability to be a fashion writer. We all have opinions. We all love clothes. Even if we don’t spend our hard earned paychecks on clothes, we still enjoy them. We enjoy them on others, and we enjoy them on ourselves. We like critiquing them, and generally discussing them. So, it should be easy for us to write in the fashion niche, either for ourselves, or as freelance writers. Once we get going, though, the ideas start to dry up. Here is a tip to keep those fashion articles flowing.

Polyvore is the secret weapon of any successful fashion writer. Polyvore is a fashion website. At Polyvore, you can create your own ensembles, as many as you want. You search for clothes and create outfits. It is fun. So, you start an article around the keyword black coat. Go to Polyvore and check out some of the black coats there. Tell me you’re not inspired now. There are several article ideas going through your head now.

How about, “What Is Hot This Season In Black Coats?” You see certain features that make a coat more comfortable, or more versatile. You think, “How To Shop For Black Coats.” Then you see a cute suit coat. That wasn’t what you had in mind for black coats, but you think it would look amazing with a simple green frock. You start thinking of “The Best Dresses To Pair With Black Coats.”

Take any of those ideas, or any others that come to you and run with them. Pull out some of the black coats listed on Polyvore and write a review of them. Write a brief synopsis of three that you love. Or, create whole outfits and use them as inspiration for how to pair x skirts with y tops.

Polyvore is a totally unnecessary step. We women should be able to write articles about fashion off the top of our head, but after so many articles, your mind turns to mush. How can you write another word about something so mundane as the cardigan sweater? But, with polyvore, you just keep going, and you enjoy it. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you’ll quit much sooner than you would like to. Polyvore has been my salvation on many, many occasions. It continues to be a huge inspiration for me, and I use it nearly daily to get my mind churning out more fashion articles.
