When it comes to outfit inspiration, Instagram fashion influencer feeds are usually the first places I look to before anywhere else. They’re cute, they’re aesthetically pleasing, and they seem to be the trendiest people around. Here are the 5 fashion Instagrammers who you should follow for your summer outfit inspo!
Ashley, the woman behind the @best.dressed account, has been one of my style icons lately. She looks perpetually put-together, even in jeans and a t-shirt, and her Instagram feed is seriously gorgeous. Ashley’s also a YouTuber, so you get to see even more of her amazing style on her channel, which focuses primarily on fashion. Her style is girly and trendy, and as a bonus, Ashley is a huge supporter of sustainable fashion and thrifting. Watching her videos feels like talking with a sister or best friend, and she’s quick to make jokes and meme references while somehow staying down-to-earth and lovable. I love to scroll through her feed looking for different pieces that elevate her outfits, whether it’s her awesome pearl-embellished sandals, her flirty dresses, or her delicate jewelry, and then seeing if I have anything like it in my own closet.
If you don’t already know Kristin or know of her, you must not watch Buzzfeed’s Ladylike YouTube channel, and I have to say, you’re missing out (you should check it out). Kristin is beautiful and her outfits are such great inspiration, especially for those days when you’re feeling a bit more dressy. Her Instagram feed has so many vivid colors, cute dresses, and tons of examples of gorgeous outfits (especially for women who may have difficulty finding outfits put together for women with Kristin’s body type). Plus, just try to tell me that her smile doesn’t brighten up your Instagram feed.
Is former First Lady Michelle Obama a fashion Instagrammer? No, of course not, but if you ever need ideas for business-chic looks or a work function, her Instagram feed is a solid place to look. She always looked amazing during her time in the White House, and her style is, quite honestly, work outfit goals. From work-appropriate dresses to coordinated pantsuits to female empowerment to adorable pictures of her hugging other people, First Lady Michelle Obama’s Instagram has it all. She’s also just strong woman goals because let’s face it, she’s so incredibly accomplished and poised.
Lee Litumbe’s Instagram feed is chock-full of wanderlust-inspiring settings, vibrant colors, and beautiful outfits. She looks effortlessly chic and I’m in awe of her ability to coordinate and shoot such gorgeous pictures. Litumbe’s account is equal parts travel content and outfit inspiration, and if you ever feel the need to soak in bright colors and vivid textures, her feed is the place to go. If I had to pick a word to describe this feed, it would be rich. Rich in color, rich in texture, rich in life, rich in just about every way a picture can be rich. Plus, Litumbe’s hair is so amazing. Look at it!
Freddie Harrel’s pictures almost never leave me without a deeper appreciation of the colors blue and white and of natural hair. She and her family are stunning, and her pattern game is absolutely on point. My favorites of her, though, are the ones where she’s standing, front and center, grinning. They’re about as beautiful as it gets. Just look at this picture of Harrel standing on a beach in a matching white two-piece set. If that doesn’t make you want to shop for tropical beachwear, I don’t know what will.
