Web-based fashion zines are a handy—not to mention earth-friendly—way of getting a glossy fashion fix without splurging for the $30 import at your local newsstand. Give a click, rather than a flip, through these forward-thinking publications and you'll be dreaming in digital in no time.
This polished online quarterly was originally put an emphasis on fashion, but the content quickly evolved to include broader cultural topics. Click through for features on everything from designers and pop-stars to sex and politics, and don't miss gorgeous photo contributions from rising-stars like Sija Magg and Joachim Johnson.
Lonny, the eagerly-anticipated project of former Domino market editor, Michelle Adams, concentrates on chic-yet-accessible interiors and unusual nesting finds. Now in the second year of its life, Lonny is still knocking it out of the park with practical tips and inspiring home tours.
Though Hardly is the most teen-oriented of our e-zines, its sophisticated aesthetic and no-nonsense editorial make it a permissible—if not compulsory—adult read. Indulge in style stories as well as original fiction, tour diaries, and even politically-driven features. (Side note: whoever does the groovy retro-scrapbook graphics deserves some kind of medal).
This "globally-minded" culture zine is a go-to source for off-kilter "eco" features and serious arts content. They've also amped up the music scene coverage with a collection of top-notch artist and album reviews. Be sure to peep the original fashion spreads, which feature styling by the likes of Michel Onofrio.
The print edition of this indie fashion zine only comes out twice a year, but the online version, "Last Things First," is constantly cooking up fabulous web-exclusives. Read for the latest on everything from notable store openings and movie reviews to juicy tell-all designer profiles.
