We're big fans of video over here at IFB. It brings content to life, and adds a fun, multimedia element to style blogging. Whether it's a haul video, a tutorial, a musical performance, an outfit brought to life or something more advanced, there's a way that any beginner can add video content to their site. IFB has it's own video series that you can check out here.
You don't need to be a tech wiz to create video for your blog. You can use video apps on your phone, and easy-to-learn editing software on your computer to splice together pieces of video as well as music and audio.
To get some inspiration for how you can make video a part of your blog, check out 7 amazing blogger videos we're totally obsessed with:
Natalie Suarez of Natalie Off Duty, in collaboration with Threadsence, performing Skinny Love. Fashion and music have always gone so well together, don't you think?
Anna of Tulip Louise, Esque Skirt Fashion Film from jade Howard. We love how artful and interesting this video is – no words necessary!
Wendy of Wendy's Lookbook talking about Color Blocking for Spring/Summer. We love how fun and comfortable Wendy is, she lets her personality shine on camera (and has a master videographer/editor).
Beth of B. Jones Style shows us how to get big, Carrie Bradshaw hair in this tutorial. Hair tutorials are always popular, so if you have a signature style that your readers love, why not show us how it's done?
Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller & The OutNet's Chic Chat. You may not have a platform like The Outnet to talk about what inspires your blog, but that doesn't mean you can't create your own style video talking about what inspires you and modeling some cool looks.
We highlighted Garance Dore's Pardon My French series with Net-a-Porter last week, but we seriously can't get enough of her videos. We love how this one mixes fashion week coverage from a whole month with a great song, and really takes you inside her world!
Jenni from I SPY DIY shows us a fringe and chain tank top DIY project. With some fun editing and a great on-camera personality, Jenni makes this tutorial video fun and inspiring!

I love these videos so much but I feel like they’re so out of my league. But it’s something definitely to aim for in the future. 🙂
Thanks for sharing these guys!
I have my own youtube channel with beauty how to’s and nail tutorials. I occasionally feature one of my videos on my blog to mix it up a little bit. Here’s my channel 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/user/fashionablygeeked?feature=watch
I tried myself together with a local blogger friend in vlogging. We made a fun video, dancing around (cause be both danced in our past)having fun and presenting our outfits. The qulity could be improved for sure but the rest…I can’t tell…maybe you can take a look and tell me how you like it and what could be better? 🙂

I created my own youtube channel showcasing the “Vogue” in Vogue & Vintage. I like to help people shop there local thrift shops and then show them how to style them for a everyday look! I like this side of the blog a little better because people get to know me behind the images. Check it out!
I’ve just started creating videos on my blog and I really love it. They add a whole other dimension to my blog and are easy to share through vimeo. My most recent video was a behind the scenes at a photoshoot with a young designer I’ve been doing some work with. I’ve had really great feedback with the video and I’m looking forward to the next one. Here’s the post with the video
[…] Some bloggers make videos to create a lookbook. Others prefer to make a set of photographs to share in a publication. And some make illustrations with the clothes they have on hand.
