In our Best Of The Web we chat to hundreds of creative trend setters from around the world, gathering up their best style tips to help keep you looking sharp. We’ve spoken to everyone, from bloggers to models and musicians to designers, learning what they’ve been up to and a bit about their thoughts on things like music and who the most stylish man on the planet is. This week we’re with not one, but three bloggers – the sisters behind the fashion and lifestyle blog Perennial Style.
It’s not often that three sisters join together to create a top fashion and style blog, but the Flower sisters, Blair, Ellen and Janie were up for the challenge. With each sister writing a different post on outfit ideas, their travels, style trends and more, Perennial Style has grown from strength to strength, gaining over 46,000 followers on their Instagram page alone. We caught up with these three flower sisters to hear their views on men’s fashion, music and more.

Can you tell us a little bit about what you do and when you got into it?
As three Dallas-based sisters, we started writing The Perennial Style three years ago as a way to share our love of fashion, travel, and events with our friends and family. We had no idea our hobby would grow into what it is today, but doing what we love everyday keeps “work” from feeling like work 😉 We love sharing trend alerts, event recaps, travel spotlights, and glimpses into our lives!
How’s 2016 been for you? Any major highlights?
2016 has been amazing so far! One highlight was being featured on The CW for a segment on how we took our blog from a hobby to a full-time career. Aside from that, we are currently lining up our annual trips, so we are excited to keep exploring and traveling!
What song have you got on repeat at the moment?
Cake By The Ocean by DNCE
What fashion advice do you have for a man?
Invest in a great tailor. There’s nothing worse than an ill-fitting suit!
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
Be patient. Life throws so many curveballs, but if you stay focused on your dreams and keep trying your hardest, everything will work out!
1 tip to grow your Instagram account
Engagement: interact with your followers and other users to build relationships. Also, quality over quantity for posting.
What’s the one thing you never want to see a guy wearing?
Socks with sandals.
Any major plans for 2016?
Simply focusing on making this year the BEST year!
What is your one guilty pleasure?
A bubble bath with a glass of Malbec after a long day
Blair and Janie both prefer a classic and preppy style, whereas Ellen is all about the newest trends and pushing the limits. Since we all wear the same size and share a closet, we share everything! It’s fun seeing how each sister styles the same pieces in different ways!
Who’s the most stylish man on the planet for you right now?
Harry Styles – He may be a bit young, but we love his style!
