A number of male bloggers are carving out careers as style leaders, posting daily outfit posts we can all learn a thing or two from. While you probably know of Leandra, Chiara and Aimee, this is another core crew who you might not be as familiar with.
Sometimes it pays to shop in the men's department, whether that's for cosy knitwear or a statement bomber that you won't spot on everyone you know. And these bloggers will not only introduce you to menswear labels, but they will also give you top-class lessons in tailoring and fuss-free weekend dressing. Maybe there are even a few men in your life who could benefit from a little inspiration?

So for your introduction to the highly groomed world of male bloggers, we have compiled a list of the nine you should pay attention to (or at least the ones you should follow on Instagram). Keep scrolling and click through our gallery to learn more.
1. My Belonging
Style Notes: If you're looking for a lesson in chic styling, turn to Los Angeles–based blogger Tommy Lei. He nails basics with slick tailoring and leather bikers, but he also isn't afraid of playing with prints such as this easy-to-wear jumpsuit.
Style Notes: Perhaps the only male blogger who has crossed over from covering strictly menswear to womenswear, too, is Bryanboy. He was one of the first really big bloggers to blow up at all, alongside the Man Repellers and Fashion Toasts of the world. He's still the only man to have done so—he really needs no introduction. He always wears the hottest fashion items, from the Prada corset belt to the J.W.Anderson Pierce bag to Gucci everything, so we would love to spend a day (read: month) exploring his wardrobe.
Style Notes: Tall, dark and handsome: All three words adequately describe the Californian blogger, Adam Gallagher, the über-stylish mastermind behind the website I Am Galla. We'd like to think of him as the Olivia Palermo of the male blogging world—he appreciates uptown tailoring, spends the summer looking chic on yachts and never has a hair out of place. He also has a jumper (or 10) we'd like to borrow…
Style Notes: If you take one styling tip from New York–based blogger Anthony Urbano, it's that your trainers must always be box-fresh. He makes streetwear high fashion—baseball caps, ripped jeans, bomber jackets and high-tops—look polished.
Style Notes: Madrid-based Pelayo Díaz of Kate Loves Me started blogging when he was a fashion student at Central Saint Martins and went on to train at Giles Deacon and McQ by Alexander McQueen in London. Now he has just short of one million followers on Instagram and was named one of the 40 most influential in the world by Times Magazine. His two style signatures that'll work for the girls too are his short-sleeved (often printed) shirts and chunky—and a little bit "ugly"—sandals.
This reminds us of Leonardo DiCaprio in Romeo & Juliet. Sigh.
6. Bloggers Boyfriend
Style Notes: Australia-based fashion blogger Kurt of Bloggers Boyfriend is one to follow if you have a soft spot for preppy style. He wears immaculate loafers, pink shirts, jumpers looped around his shoulders and dapper straw hats, but it's his coat collection that we want all for ourselves.
Pair with sparkly socks if you want to make them more fun.
7. Jim Chapman
Style Notes:Jim Chapman looks like he stepped out of the pages of GQ, which is no great surprise, given he is a contributing editor. The vlogger has more than two million followers on Instagram and is married to beauty YouTube star Tanya Burr. Just like Tanya, he has built an enormous fan base, thanks to his approachable, everyday style. If we were Tanya, we'd raid his handsome collection of cashmere and cable-knit roll-necks…
Style Notes: London-based blogger Joey London Style favours city tailoring, but his weekend looks are the ones that grab our attention. Joey proves that a statement bomber is a standout purchase, and he also has a number of dreamy shearling coats.
Style Notes: German blogger One Dapper Street now lives in New York, and—as you might guess by his name—dresses like he is the king of Wall Street. Ties aside, it's his accessories game that really has our attention with a host of chic brogues, smart trainers and elegant backpacks.
