In our Best Of The Web series we chat to men and women from all over the world, collecting their advice on fashion, style, social media and more. We’ve chatted to models, designers, artists and Instagrammers, and this week we’re with fashion and lifestyle blogger Louise Whitehouse.

With her minimalist style and clean eye catching photography, Louise Whitehouse created a blog that shows off not only her fashion, but also her lifestyle, her personality and her inspirations. Her photography is intermixed with her down to earth and naturalistic writing, and has attracted thousands of followers who enjoy her etherial look and simple, earthy vibe. We caught up with her to see what her views are on men’s fashion and style.

How’s your 2015 been? Any major highlights?

My 2015 really was a rollercoaster, filled with adventures, new things and travels. Living in Berlin was incredibly inspiring. I made some major changes in my life and learnt a lot about myself. One of the most exciting things was that I started my blog and got so much positive feedback. It’s been great to have my own space to let out some creativity and be able to inspire others.

What song have you got on repeat at the moment

Waves by Japanese Wallpaper.

What’s the most important thing about a guy’s style to you?

That he is comfortable and confident in what he’s wearing, whether it’s a simple or more creative outfit.

What fashion advice do you have for a man?

Get a really good collection of basics, with a focus on high quality and proper fit.

1 tip to grow your Instagram account

Create a map on your phone where you collect your finished photos before you post them. That way you can see if the newest photo goes well with the other ones, and you will get a more aesthetic overview look on your Instagram.

What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?

A keychain connected to his pants.

Worst dating experience you’ve had?

Probably when I got really excited by a guy on Tinder and when I finally met him, he turned out to be incredibly annoying, loud with a horrible accent, and definitely not as good looking as in his photos.

Any major plans for the rest of 2016?

I’m definitely up for some new travels this year. There are so many places I want to see, but right now I’m quite set on either India or north east of USA (California and Portland). I really want to spend some time exploring nature and countryside, and learning more about yoga.

Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?

I really love the simple and slightly bohemian style of the singer Matt Corby. He does the ‘white t-shirt and jeans’ look in such a nice way and compliments with a good jeans shirt or suede jacket. His over all bearded and long-haired aussie-look still keeps it interesting.
