The world of fashion is definitely a visual one, and what better way is there to keep up with the latest trends then by following the stylishly inspirational on Instagram, the social media platform that is completely dedicated to photos. Raise the style level of your feed by following DOWNTOWN’s Top 10 Picks for Instagrammers.
1. Cara Delevingne: @caradelevingne
This British supermodel delivers gorgeous style pics with a side of humor—a recent video of Cara goofily dancing around in an oversized sweater-dress backstage, at the Stella McCartney show, quickly went viral. The crowd that the 21-year-old runs with is not too shabby either—Cara frequently shares pictures of her nights out with Georgia May Jagger and Suki Waterhouse.
2. Camille Charrière: @camtyox
The stylish half-French and half-British fashion journalist has worn a number of different hats throughout her life. After previously working for NET-A-PORTER, MATCHESFASHION, and as a lawyer, the blonde beauty has now taken time to run her blog and work freelance. Follow @camytox for the best in British-French style.
3. Caroline Issa: @CaroIssa
J.Crew model and shoe designer Caroline Issa keeps things simple yet chic on her Instagram. Her feed features an eclectic mix of classic and polished accessories.
4. Arielle Vandenberg: @helloimarielle
We all adore stalking fabulous photos, but Instagram has taken it one step further by allowing us to keep up with our favorites via video, as well. And, as it happens, this socialite has also made it big time on Vine. Arielle Vandenberg is trendy, gorgeous and pretty damn hilarious. Oh, and her boyfriend is a rock star too. She’s everything we want to be.
5. Elsa Hosk: @hoskelsa
Primed to be the next Victoria’s Secret Angel, the Swedish model has worked for a number of impressive brands including Lilly Pulitzer, Dior, and Dolce & Gabbana. In her younger years, Hosk played in the Swedish women’s professional basketball league. Though Hosk no longer plays the sport, her Instagram is a slam-dunk in style.
6. James Kingston: @mrjamesk
James Kington’s Instagram is proof that there is someone out there that is always having more of an adventure than you. After parting ways with the constraints of his academic career, the 23-year-old set out to live life exactly the way he wanted. For those of us too scared to actually jump from the rooftop of one building to another, Kingston’s Instagram allows his followers to live vicariously through his escapades.
7. Babe Walker: @babewalker
Fictional socialite Babe Walker won us over with her first book White Girl Problems and then had us laughing all over again when Psychos was released in April. But, don’t be sad if you’ve already finished both! Babe keeps us cracking up with her hilarious and oh-so-relatable Instagram posts. Her recent declaration, “Sometimes, on Mondays, I slap people,” is one of our personal favorites.
8. Ashley Benson: @itsashbenzo
With the season 5 premiere of ABC Family’s Pretty Little Liars this week, standout Ashley Benson as Hanna Marin will be one to watch this summer. As you’re trying to discover who the elusive A could possibly be, keep up with Benson, and the other liars, on her Instagram.
9. Lisa Eldridge: @LisaEldrigeMakeup
Want to learn how to perfect your makeup technique this summer? Look no further than Lisa Eldridge and her amazing Instagram tutorials. Eldridge has worked with almost every major celebrity from Cindy Crawford to Emma Roberts. That’s a good enough track record for us!
10. A Satire of Instagram: @satiregram
And for when you just can’t take another stereotypical #tbt or #nomakeup post on your feed, there’s Satiregram, which shamelessly mocks the most overused Instagram poses we all know and hate.
