The DIY Blog Design series is an ongoing series to help YOU improve the design of the blog. Throughout the series I will share useful tips, tricks and information to help you design your blog yourself, without the need to hire a designer. Find the rest of the ongoing series here.
Lifestyle blogger? Check out these fonts!
Today on DIY Blog Design I have 6 more font pairings for you! These fonts are all available for free on Google Fonts. These font pairings were selected with design and fashion bloggers in mind so the fonts are very elegant, and modern. Of course these are only suggestions, so feel free to use these fonts if you think they match your blog’s brand!

Poiret One & Gentium
Poiret One is one of my favorite fonts for design and fashion bloggers. It’s so elegant, clean and modern! In this pairing I’ve selected it for the heading, but it can also work as a body font as well. It’s easy to read while still having lots of personality. What I love about Gentium for design and fashion bloggers is how down to earth it is. It provides a great contrast for the elegant Poiret One with its traditional look and slightly heavier feel.
Trajan Pro 3 & Josefin Sans
This pair is another one of my favorites. The clean and light Josefin sans balances well with the more ornate and elegant Trajan Pro. For a contrast of pure modern simplicity and old-time elegance Trajan & Josefin Sans can’t be beat.
Julius Sans One & Merriweather Light
I love Julius Sans One for headings. It’s light and modern, yet commands attention, and is easy to read. Perfect for your blog’s headings! Merriweather is another serif font with a wonderful traditional look & feel, balancing out the colder, modern and sleek Julius Sans One.
Oswald & Droid Sans
What is more modern than a pair of clean, sans-serif fonts? Chunky, attention grabbing Oswald is the perfect emphasis for your blog’s headings. Droid Sans is easy to read, light and modern. Together this pair of fonts bring a clean, modern look to any blog.
Quattrocento & Fanwood Text
For timeless elegance, a nice pair of serif fonts can’t be beat. Yet, this pairing is modern and fresh, while keeping its traditional roots. Clean and modern serif fonts don’t distract from your content, and instead compliment it, putting the emphasis on your content.
Quicksand & Amethysta
Quicksand is clean, light, and modern, while Amethysta is traditional and easy to read. These fonts not only contrast each other in style, but also in their widths. Lofty and airy Quicksand takes up space, while Amethysta is compact, creating a very balanced pairing for your blog.
