Fashion is a $1.7 trillion industry1that evolves daily, even hourly. And keeping up with fashion cover stories has gone from picking up a favorite magazine or two in the checkout aisle of the grocery store, to simply pulling your smartphone out of your purse to browse the latest fashion news. In fact, consuming fashion news and information is easier than ever with the decline of print news and the advent of instantaneous updates broadcasted to online.

In no particular order, here are some of the top new sources to keep you current on all things fashion-related.
- Vogue Magazine
In print consistently since 1892, Vogue is perhaps the most well-known high-fashion and lifestyle magazine in the world, with 23 international editions.

All things fashion, including city-specific travel guides, are popular among readers who want their news covered in extensive detail and updated frequently.
- Elle Magazine

Elle also keeps current on all major social media networks which are listed on the site itself.
- The Business of Fashion
A relative newcomer to heavy-hitting fashion publications, BoF was founded in 2007.
