I spend a considerably large amount of time on Instagram. It is by far my favorite social media platform for personal use and my go-to hub for fashion inspiration. If I ever need to figure out a new way to wear a white blouse or what to wear with my new stripped culottes, Instagram is the first place I go. I get so much inspiration from all of the creative people who share their style.
I thought to myself, “hey, you guys might be interested in this.” Plus it would be selfish of me not to share this massive hub of fashion information with you. So here are some of my favorite fashion mavens to follow on Instagram. Check them out.
Fisayo Longe is the London based fashion stylist and the fabulous blogger behind Mirror Me. Her feed is like a Pinterest board of #BlackGirlMagic. Now I’ve only been to London once; it was rainy and cold. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go back. Then I followed Fisayo. Now I want to live there (don’t judge my decision making processes).
Ade Owolabi is a Christian fashion blogger, like me (I enjoy saying that, it makes me feel like we’re bffs and I can borrow her clothes). Every outfit on her Instagram is a 1000, on a scale of 1 to 10 of course. And she shares scriptures. What’s better than that?!
She’s not a fashion blogger, just a girl with a tripod. And this girl with a tripod gives me inspiration for days. @styleenthusiast is close to what I would actually find in my closet (or neighborhood thrift shop) so she gives me some real-life fashion hope. Her style is minimal, yet vintage, yet over the top (don’t ask me how that’s possible) and I thoroughly enjoy it.
@awedbymoni resides in my neck of the woods and boy do I wish to run into her one day, in a non-creepy-I-promise-I’m-not-trying-to-jack-you-I-just-really-like-your-taste sort of way. She’s a wife, mommy and somehow manages to find time to blog at Awed by Monica and post jaw-dropping Instagram photos.
Nini Nguyen is a fashion designer, stylist and blogger at Nini’s Style. She’s what I like to call fantasy style–pretty much things that I can’t afford. I love to see how she matches luxury brands with her own stuff (which is pretty up there in price). There’s always something unique.
Frédérique Tietcheu is another fashion blogger who is always serving #BlackGirlMagic. Her style is laid back, but no less fabulous. Her feed taught me that you can pretty much rock sneakers and flat sandals with anything and still win the fashion world.
Fashion blogger @quirkykwofie is a blogger after mine own heart. She just looks amazing. It’s simple but well put together. I”m always inspired to take a second look at my closet and see how I can make the most of what I already have.
If you love color then, fashion artist @thekhoi_fro is your best friends. Every outfit is chock full of all of the prints, patterns and colors you could ever ask for.
