Fashion Publications I LOVE...

Harper's Bazaar (1-year)
I started getting this magazine by accident, and I'm so glad I did. The photography is what gets me with HB. The spreads (yes, there are several in every issue) are always heavily laden with a theme or particular trend which I find interesting and helpful. My favorite feature of the magazine is "Buy, Keep, Store". I tend to purchase some pretty crazy things from season to season and this feature helps me know what should be packed away or kept in my closet.
I suppose I'm a little biased because I write for the site, but I really do get some great ideas from the insightful Style Gurus and the photos they take of people on their college campuses. www.CollegeFashionista.com has so many voices and opinions contributing to it and is something I hope will continue to bring the latest and greatest to students across the world.
Each individual post can be perused in less than 10 seconds but the message comes across loud and clear; Katherine Power and Hillary Kerr really know their stuff and are always coming up with fun and innovative new ideas.
Marie Claire (2-year)
I've been reading this magazine since I was about 15. I like the mix of RTW Fashion for the everyday gal and the editorial pieces as well. They also always do really interesting spreads on the cover model/celebrity.
I like this magazine mostly for the same reason that I like Marie Claire. It has the girth and page count of Vogue with less advertisements (though I love the ads!) and more to read.
Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes
I can't deny my insane jealousy of Jane Aldridge. She has quite possibly the most enviable closet on the planet and though I keep telling myself that some of it is her mom's stuff...I'm still jealous! The photography shows that a personal fashion blog is most successful when you not only have great taste but can present the clothing/accessories/ shoes/etc in a beautiful way.

Amazing photos. Great variety. End of story.
I feel like I have to like Vogue as someone interested in fashion, but it really has never been a favorite of mine. I kind of feel like I don't get as much bang for my buck as with some other publications. There are a lot of ads, and when you read as many mags as I do, they begin to become a bit redundant. Also, I can NEVER find the table of contents!
womensweardaily (Twitter Feed)
Twitter is how I stay on the pulse of the industry these days and WWD's tweets are not only about clothes but also about the people and news that goes on within...in just 140 characters!
Teen Vogue (2-year)
Since I'm only 22 I don't feel much shame in grabbing a copy of Teen Vogue every now and then. That's where I discovered Sea of Shoes actually. They always have fun spreads with bright colors and it's a publication I can page through in a few minutes if I have a little downtime.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

Thanks for sharing this great list, Meridith!  I love all of these publications as well, and totally have their websites bookmarked, especially Sea of Shoes!  I'd love to hear a bit about why you LOVE these publications, like how @Bethany_K did in her Top Magazines list! :)

I love the update, Meridith!  I, too, am insanely jealous of Jane Aldridge's closet.  Even though she borrow some of her clothing and accessories from her mom, because I wish my mom and I were the same size!  By the way, I just peeped your list being shared on the BestofLunch twitter account ;)
