BloggerTalk Style Tips From Ellie Mack | MissPap
When Ellie Mack set up her blog ‘Strut In Her Style’ back in 2014, she never imagined that pulling outfits together and inspiring others through fashion would become such a passion, inspiring her blog and Insta audience to amp up their style stakes, the Ellie way.
We caught up with the gorgeous Ellie, who is also a psychology student at York uni, to find out more...
WHAT IS YOUR VERY BEST STYLE TIP?
I think style is super personal, and it can be really easy to fall into a trap of following trends too obsessively and losing your own sense of style. The best advice I would give is to keep things simple with basics, and add hints of trends through your accessories.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A BLOGGER
I’ve met some really fab people over the past couple of years. Overall the blogging community is a super positive one and full of really great supportive babes - which is always nice!
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BEING AN INSTAGRAMMER AND A BLOGGER?
For me being a blogger means you like to write. It’s definitely something I’d like to have more time to do. As much as I love my Instagram, sometimes it can be super therapeutic to sit down and put your thoughts and feelings into words.

HOW HAVE BLOGGING OPPORTUNITIES CHANGED OVER TIME?
When I started my blog 3 years ago, the blogging community was just starting to build in momentum, which was great! I remember being so excited to work with brands on a gifting basis, and whilst I still do that regularly, it’s great to see that so many brands are seeing and appreciating the quality of our work, as well as the strength of our influence, and therefore collaborating with us on a paid level.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WANTING TO BECOME A BLOGGER?
The first and only piece of advice I would give to somebody wanting to become a blogger is make sure you are doing it for the right reasons! To be an authentic blogger, whatever you are blogging about, I would say means you need to have a passion for your topic. If you have passion and love what you’re talking about, other people will resonate with that and enjoy your content!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
My style is relatively relaxed. I’m a big fan of jeans and shirt combinations, and fun accessories. I’m definitely a trend follower (you should see the amount of gingham in my wardrobe right now!) but I try to keep things simple and wearable for everyday.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE EDITING APP?
I am obsessed with Snapseed! Being a lover of all things white, but living in the country, it’s often hard to find those perfect white walls, but Snapseed solves that problem for me.
WHAT'S YOUR BEST ADVICE FOR SOMEBODY WHO SAYS THEY HAVEN’T GOT A PARTICULAR STYLE?
I don’t think it matters! I think my favourite thing about fashion is that there are no boundaries - if you like something, regardless of if you think it’s ‘you’ or not, I say wear it! Be adventurous, you may find you like it!
WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE MISSPAP PIECE AND WHY?
This very shirt! The Anthea white tie front shirt is my ruffled wrap shirt of dreams. It makes a classic shirt and jeans combination look that little bit more thought out.
WHO IS YOUR CURRENT FAVOURITE FASHION BLOGGER AND WHY?
I am obsessed with Charlotte from Lurch Hound Loves - that girl knows how to rock Gucci like no other! No but seriously, Charlotte is one of the nicest girls on the blogging circuit, and I love how effortlessly she incorporates designer accessories into a high-street wardrobe. My kind of girl!
