Living in such a fast-paced, visual world can have its ups and downs. Instagram and other social media provide us all with a powerful creative outlet, but sometimes you just need to close your eyes and give your fingers a break from scrolling. That’s where podcasts come in. However old-school they may seem, podcasts are definitely making a comeback. And for good reason. Both informative and entertaining, podcasts really get your imagination working, in a way that Netflix just can’t.
Staying up to date with fashion can be like a full-time job. Between flipping through magazines, scrolling through Instagram, and reading blog posts, keeping up with trends can be tough. Fashion podcasts are one of my favorite ways to stay on top of industry news.
Whether you’re working out, chilling in pajamas, or commuting to your summer internship, podcasts are the best way to pass time. Below are my top five fashion podcasts. So, grab your headphones and enjoy.
1—Fashion No Filter. If you don’t follow Camille Charrière and Monica Ainley on Instagram, your feed is seriously lacking in style inspiration. The two fashion girls talk everything fashion, from trends and shows to industry issues and clichés. Guests so far have included the likes of designer Roksanda Ilincic and Caroline Vreeland. Subscribe ASAP for your fashion fix.
2—Vogue. Over the past 25 years, André Leon Talley has worked for major publications such as Interview, W and of course, Vogue. Check out this podcast to hear the bubbly Fashionisto’s exclusive interviews with Anna Wintour, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and more.
3—The High Low. Pandora Sykes and Dolly Alderton cohost this cheery podcast, which is a little less fashion and a little more pop-culture, but fabulous nonetheless. Their very British sense of humor makes for a seriously entertaining listen.
4—Monocycle. The epitome of a blogging success story, Man Repeller has grown from a small fashion blog into a successful business, with a shoe line for Net-a-Porter to boot (see what I did there). Listen to Monocycle for an insight into Leandra Medine’s quirky yet genius mind, where she discusses everything from fertility to fashion week.
5—Office Hours with College Fashionista. No podcast recommendations would be complete without mentioning Office Hours with College Fashionista, which invites incredible guests to discuss their careers and offer valuable advice. Such amazing guests have included none other than Elaine Welteroth, the Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue, Riverdale stars Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart, and Victoria’s Secret model Grace Elizabeth. I can’t wait to see who else they have lined up!
