My top 5 most visited style websites, and why I think they’re awesome

I would not have made this personal journey to being a better dressed man without these style websites I am about to share with all of you. Each of them has their own unique twist in sending their message across, but they do it so effectively I can only hope I can compare to them in the future.

  1. Dappered.com – Easily my most visited style website. Joe, who runs the website, manages to post over two to three times a day, five days a week. It’s incredible how much he posts and how rich his content is. There are posts about sales, style debates, and they even have Beth come in every now and then to talk about things from that confusing woman’s perspective. Dappered mostly focuses on finding affordable, timeless style. Their style philosophies are ones I’ve picked up over the past few years.
  2. Primer Magazine – One of the best looking style websites out there. What I love about Primer is its “The Getup” posts. All of their posts are pleasing to the eye and they have some serious graphic design skill. It’s literally an online magazine. They also never go overboard with the prices of their suggestions. Their non-style articles are also worth reading. There are articles on fitness, attending job interviews, and other matters that appeal to guys like me, guys out of college.
  3. Effortless Gent – Has a ton of great content, even though Barron’s rate of posting has gone down — and understandably so, he’s got a clothing business to run now. I love this site because its approach on fashion and style greatly influence how I do as well. One of my favorite articles is his guide to Business Casual. He put together 7 different looks with just 9 versatile pieces. An versatile wardrobe with interchangeable pieces is something I definitely recommend and that post illustrates exactly why.

  4. Real Men Real Style – The great thing about this site is that its owner, Antonio, also creates videos that discuss his posts. His YouTube channel already has hundreds of videos, and you could spend hours or even days just watching them. They’re simple and never flashy — just Antonio talking about style with a black or white background.
  5. Men’s Style Pro – Another great website, Sabir Peele is just plain stylish. His looks are colorful yet never over the top. He effortlessly toes that fine line between classic and trendy. He also has an athletic-lean build, which I soon hope to achieve, but will probably never do so.

There are always too many to mention, but these are those that have had the most impact on my “personal style”. They don’t promote trends, overly expensive brands, and items that will just go out of fashion a few years from now. They go for affordable quality pieces that will never go out of style. That’s why these blogs are my favorites.
