Although we still love the occasional browse of a street style site, our daily outfit inspiration now comes courtesy of Instagram. We browse our favorite app as soon as we awaken in the morning to help us decide what to wear that day, we flip through our favorite accounts with friends, seeking outfit inspiration for the weekend, and we all have our favorite style icons whose accounts we check daily for styling tips. Read on to discover a selection of our favorite Instagram style icons, who never let us down.
Charlotte’s wardrobe is a delightful mix of modern bohemian and cool urbanite, boasting a mixing pot of ethereal printed dresses, double denim ensembles and crisp white shirt dresses. We look to Charlotte for inspiration when it comes to updating our casual weekend wardrobe with stylish aplomb. Her accessories are always on-point and on trend, with regular occurrences including fringed bags, suede boots and oversized sunglasses. We love a girl who can work a nonchalant pair of trainers for any occasion, and Charlotte is a pro at fusing dressing up with dressing down.
We love how Courtney interprets current trends in her own way, in particular her spin on the seventies trend gets our hearts racing and has us reaching for our credit cards. Her feed is our go-to when we’re wondering how to wear flares or pondering ponchos, as she always manages to make retro styles look cool and contemporary. She also great at invigorating simple outfits with statement accessories. A recent trip to Peru saw her updating her handbag collection with Peruvian embellished clutches, and she recently sailed through fashion week in a covetable pair of velvet sandals.
When we’re seeking inspiration in the form of a downtown New York aesthetic, we always find ourselves on Danielle’s feed. She’s an expert at taking a simple pair of jeans or a bomber jacket and creating a polished look with an urban edge. Rarely seen without her trademark straightened hair and oversized shades, Danielle inspires us to create a trademark beauty look to stick to daily! Usually an advocate for a monochrome wardrobe, we’ve recently been admiring Danielle’s take on the seventies trend with a patchwork mini skirt and knee-high boots.
When it comes to classic, sophisticated style, we always head to Roos-Anne’s feed. Predominantly clad in all-black outfits (with the occasional appearance of a chic white shirt), she effortlessly epitomises that quintessentially Parisian style that we all adore. The attention is all in the details, such as leaving the exact right amount of ankle showing in between a pair of cropped black pants and ankle boots, or tying a sleek black scarf around her neck. If you’re struggling with styling a head-to-toe black outfit, head straight for Roos-Anne’s account to see how balancing silhouettes and textures can help you to achieve the desired look.
We love the diversity of Mary’s style. One day she’ll be super casual, wearing a denim shirt open over a white tee with a bandana tied around her neck, the next she’ll be dressed up in a fringed skirt and lace-up sandals. We can guarantee that visiting her account will end up with us having a wardrobe wish-list longer than our arm. We’ve recently been inspired to tie up the hem of our denim shirt, pair our summer denim pinafores with Chelsea ankle boots, and to invest in a chic white striped shirt that will go with everything this Fall.
