The theme you choose for your blog is the first impression you give readers when they come to your site. That’s why it’s so important to have a theme that’s responsive, aesthetically pleasing, and easy to navigate. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve left a blog simply because I didn’t like the way it looked or it was hard to find what I was looking for. That may seem harsh to some, but it’s the truth. If a blog looks unprofessional I’m not going to trust what the author has to say.

I feel like as beauty and lifestyle bloggers it’s especially important that our blogs look nice. We’re constantly talking about fashion, makeup, and home decor so our blogs should reflect our personal style. Whether you’re just starting a beauty blog or yours needs a makeover, I tried to find something to suit everyone’s style.

As I was researching and picking out my favorite WordPress themes I wanted to start up five new blogs just so I could use them all! Each theme I found is responsive, meaning it will work on any device, whether that’s a laptop or a smartphone. The layout of each design is also perfect for blog posts about fashion, makeup reviews, DIY projects and more!

A lot of the themes I recommend require you to be self-hosted, which means you’re not running your blog through WordPress.com. If you’re looking for a good host, I highly recommend SiteGround. Plans start at just $3.95/month and the 24/7 chat support is there to help you with all of your questions! SiteGround is also faster and more secure than a lot of other hosts available, meaning a better experience for all of the people visiting your blog!

Silk

Silk from Pixelgrade is a stunning theme that’s perfect for any fashion blogger. The design is very crisp, with small details that draw the user in and make a great first impression! Pixelgrade is an amazing theme provider who go above and beyond just providing the design. They offer a 14 day trial period for any theme along with the option to pay for the theme and their services on a monthly basis. You can also cancel at any time, no yearly contracts involved!

Madison

I love the two different menu bars available with the Madison theme as well as all of the options to add your social media feeds. Adding your feed instead of just a link to your Instagram profile entices people and they’ll be more likely to follow you. You can upload a custom header and use a slider to highlight multiple blog posts. Madison also comes pre-equipped with all of the plugins you see in the demo.

Daisy

I think this daisy theme is so cute! The delicate and minimal design is perfect for any lifestyle blogger looking to truly highlight their posts. So many themes these days look alike but I think this one stands out amongst the crowd. All of the colors are customizable to fit your brand in addition to being able to choose where your widgets and plugins go.

Rosegold

For all of you rosegold lovers out there, this one’s for you! The design is very clean and the rosegold blog title at the top is very on trend. When you purchase this theme you’ll have the opportunity to contact the creator of this theme with your blog name. She’ll send over a file that includes your blog name in the rosegold script and you’ll be good to go! This theme also includes a video tutorial that will walk you through how to set it up. Who said blog design had to be difficult?

Caroline

The Caroline theme is very customizable which is perfect for those who don’t know how to code but who want something that’s just their own. All of the colors and fonts can be changed and widgets and elements of the layout can be hidden at the click of a button. The Caroline theme comes with five different layouts, four different post styles, and is WooCommerce compatible. There’s also a full-width Instagram feed in the footer so everyone who visits your site can see your beautiful photos!

Malina

I love this last theme so much! Malina is an absolutely stunning theme and I’m so tempted to buy it myself. Choose from 3 different blog post layouts, and 15 layouts for the overall look of your blog. Customize the homepage to your liking and display your Instagram feed right on your blog! When you purchase this theme you’ll also get written instructions on how to install it.

Oooh I looooove Rosegold and Malina! I’m in the market for a new theme because my theme is about 3 years old – I feel it’s good to give my blog a facelift every three years or so! My one thing is I’m so technologically challenged so I would want to pay them extra to install it just so I don’t break my site! Ha.
