Blogging and especially fashion blogging, is on the rise, that’s why we have created this list with our top picks for WordPress themes specially crafted for bloggers. Whether you are just looking to share your obsession with everything new in fashion with the world, or you already are an established blogger looking to upgrade the appearance of your website, our list will help you find the theme you’ve been looking for.
We have selected the themes in this list based on a few key factors. First it was the theme’s appearance, because let’s face it, it’s the first thing your visitors will see, we want it to be as well designed as possible. Next it was ease of use, whether it is during the initial setup or further down the road when using any features provided by the theme, we need things to be quick and intuitive so we can spend more time on what matters, our content. Another factor was customization options, here we are looking for the right amount of customization options bundled in the theme, not too little that we will have to dive into code just to make the theme color scheme to match our brand, but not too many to the point that we get lost in buttons, sliders and color-pickers. Finally we took into account overall existing user satisfaction regarding everything mentioned above and additionally updates and support, happy users are a sign of a good product.
