With fashion month wrapping up, people are flocking towards Instagram to indulge themselves on the newest street style looks – as worn by fashion influencers or bloggers alike. Models walking in designer pieces down the runway are just as chic and fascinating as the invited guests sweeping through the streets outside Durbar Court in London, before Victoria Beckham unveiled her Spring/Summer 2020 collection, or simply walking through the cobblestoned streets of Soho, New York. In this digital era, the images captured of fashion bloggers and editors, flaunting their own beautifully unique ensembles are uploaded to Instagram for the rest of the world to see.
The largest social media platform is filled with pictures of individuals from across the globe who are strutting down the streets of major fashion capitals, providing us “mere folks”, with inspiration on styling new trends, creating new outfits, or to simply admire all the glamorous looks from afar. Even if these fashion bloggers are attending the busiest yet trendsetting month of the year, Instagram is still utilized as a creative outlook for anyone who wishes to express themselves through the clothes they wear. As such we all must be guilty of saving Instagram posts of people wearing looks we love to incorporate into our own personal style, and perhaps scrolling down through a fashion blogger’s feed as we watch different seasons pass by.
Get to know some of the individuals from Instagram whose street style looks you can definitely garner inspiration from!
