Working in the fashion industry has its temptations, as there are so many different styles and outfits out there to try and showcase to your fans. The fashion blogger Laura Werner manages to resist the endless possibilities and stays true to her minimalistic approach to fashion. Based in Berlin, for the last eight years she has been showcasing her clean style on her blog “The Limits of Control” and has gathered a following of 40.000 people on Instagram as well – in this relatively young industry she is already a long-established pro.

In the past, her dream was to become a doctor; today, she is a blogger. After school, the 21-years-old moved from a small village in Bavaria to Berlin, to live her passion and to start working on her blog full-time. Now, Laura lives in Berlin together with her boyfriend and cute dog and has been writing about fashion, interior, and her interests since 2009. When Laura founded her blog, the whole blogosphere wasn’t that popular. At the time, she blogged about almost everything; her favorite series, her thoughts and inspirations, and of course about fashion. She wanted to leave her small village to find a place where she could have a platform to share her creativity with the world.

Laura already started her blog at the age of 13 and her blog accompanied her throughout her entire adolescence. Eight years is a very long time in the blogger business; especially, since in 2009 blogging was still in its infancy. Laura was one of the first bloggers in Germany and in December 2014 she published her autobiographical book “The Limits of Control – Wie mein Blog mich erwachsen machte” (editor’s note: “How blogging made me grow up”). She speaks about her years of experience with blogging and addresses both the good and bad aspects.

“My blog made me grow up and I learned a lot.”Laura Werner

Laura started blogging just for herself. Even today, she still documents her everyday life, outfit inspirations, recipes, and impressions of her apartment on her blog. Her posts really are a diary of her life, where she writes honestly about her thoughts, ideas, and inspirations. The philosophy behind her successful blog is to share daily outfit inspirations, real looks, and her creativity with her readers.

Her style is easy, minimal and feminine. Laura relies specifically on individual items to create a particular look. Her secrets are simple basic pieces combined with a twist, an eye-catching detail; for example a simple shirt with an exciting cut, a bag with an interesting buckle, or sophisticated shoes with an unexpected element.

The 21-year-old inspires us and her loyal readers with her high-quality content and regular posts and is firmly established in the blogger scene. We’re excited to follow her further development and highly recommend you to have a closer look at her blog “The Limits of Control”.
