Emergency Post Ideas, Fashion Bloggers, Writer's Block

Hello, dolls! In the past, I've covered tips for getting through writer's block, and I've also written up posts on emergency ideas for beauty and lifestyle bloggers. Now fashion bloggers, here is one for you! If you're having writer's block and are at a loss for what to blog about, here are ten emergency post ideas to get you jump started, and back to blogging NOW!

1. Wish Lists! Wish lists are such a quick and easy way to get back to posting because it requires nothing more than you divulging the things you're lusting over at the moment. Pop over to Polyvore and put together a collage of all those pieces you are dying to have in your wardrobe, grab the code, and post it up! Super simple and loved by readers!

2. Recreate a Look from a Character! Pick out a character from a TV show, movie, book or even a play, and recreate one of their looks from head to toe. One of my favorite examples from recent memory is Kirstie from A Yellow Brick Blog recreating one of Cher's looks from Clueless! Want to challenge yourself? Create a look inspired by the character without imitating one that's readily available (i.e. create a look that screams Blair from Gossip Girl, but not one pulled directly from the show).

3. Update a Classic Style! Part of fashion is taking classic pieces and updating them with current trends. So why not show your readers how? Show them how to bring 70s bell bottoms up to date, or how to make a 20s flapper dress look totally now! Who knows. You might set a trend of your own!

4. The Look for Less! Everyone loves drooling over the latest runway looks, but most of us don't have the budget to buy out the line. Instead, we're working on strict budgets and want the best deals. Use your fashion magic to show your readers where to get budget friendly dupes for the hottest pieces. Trust me, they'll thank you!

5. OOTD! An 'Outfit of the Day' post is a standard. Can't think of what to blog about? Show off what you're wearing! Easy and doesn't take too much thought or setup. Just grab your camera, snap some shots, and give us the skinny on your personal style! Not only does it show others how to piece together an outfit, it let's the reader get to know you a little better, too!

6. Color Edit! Every season there is some hot new color that just begs to be incorporated into our wardrobe! Use your fashion guru skills to feature items in the must-have color. Create a collage showing different ways to wear the latest hue. If you want to kick it up a notch, pick a pattern or print to show off instead!

7. Teach Readers Something New! You're an encyclopedia of fashion knowledge, styling tips, color pairings, and more. Share some of that knowledge with your followers! Explain the color wheel, demonstrate all the different ways to tie a tie or knot a scarf, show them how to spot fake designer bags. Whatever it is you know, pass it on. Speaking of teaching...

8. DIY! Are you skilled at creating your own fashions from scratch? Do you make your own jewelry, clothing, or other accessories? If so, why not write up a tutorial for your readers? Give your crafty followers a new project to do that helps them begin to create their own personal style! Everyone loves things that are one of a kind, right?

9. Celeb Style Files! Have a celeb whose style you lust after? Your readers probably do, too! Create a style file that really shows off why you would love that celeb's closet and share it. It might just inspire you and your readers to find new pieces to add to your own collections!

10. Brand Introductions! Most people have heard of brands like Chanel and Dior, but what about your favorite smaller fashion houses? Why not create a primer for your readers and introduce them to all of those brands you think should be in their fashion file! Give some background, create a collage filled with your favorite pieces, whatever you think showcases these brands best!

And there you have it! Ten fab ideas to get you writing and your block crushed! Have more ideas? Leave them in the comments. If this list has helped you, let me know!

Stay gorgeous, fashionistas!
