The Root Recommends: StyleLikeU

This unconventional fashion blog celebrates the diversity of style -- in all its colors. 


StyleLikeU is a fashion blog driven by individuality, featuring pictures and video of models, designers and style lovers of all ages, races and ethnicities.

Founders Elisa Goodkind and Lily Mandelbaum are less interested in the clothes and more interested in the person living inside them, which gives their site the kind of depth missing from mainstream fashion blogs. Here you'll find the musings of the most eccentric style mavens, including those of contributing editor James Flemons, who is featured in a slide show wearing a green vintage leather motorcycle vest six different ways. also profiled designers Lizzy and Darlene Okpo, Nigerian-American sisters whose clothing line, William Okpo, mimics their own quirky fashion sense.  

If you want to add some creativity to your wardrobe, check out daily for a dose of aesthetic inspiration.
