20 Inspiring Style Blogs Of Few, If Any, Words

If you're reading this, you may like style blogs. Taking in all those delicious photographs, reading about those designer/vintage/one-of-a-kind items, living vicariously through the cute outfits on display...believe me, it's a joy I share, too.

What about when you're looking for style inspiration? Oftentimes, it's more inspiring to look at images and let them wash over you. Style is a visual medium, not a literary one, and reading about something is very different from seeing a photograph of the same thing.

With that in mind, here are several style blogs which are heavy on graphics and light on text. They all differ somewhat from each other, and many of them don't just cover personal style. So, there should be something here for everyone.

Focus: Disturbingly sensual images, from a haunting still image from La Perle to a young woman in a transparent veil to a well-dressed golden skeleton.
