Shameless to say, I, as a typical millennial, am very much glued to my phone and 80% of the time you will find me scrolling through Instagram. To me and probably many of you too, Instagram is about more than just applying hipster filters to the brunch and fancy latte pictures. To a great extent, Instagram is a news source, one that floods your feed with beautiful squares rather than words. In fact, it is my personal favorite source for fashion news (after this blog, of course). You know that agony of rolling back and forth in your bed because you are struggling to mentally piece together your perfect outfit for the day? Well, Instagram is the best remedy! Here are a few of my favorite Instagram accounts that never fail to inspire and, a lot of the time, make me envious. With their impeccable #OOTD, fashion week front row / backstage shots, all sorts of fashion inside scoop and gorgeous selfies, they will certainly make you wanna click + Follow.
@songofstyle - LA based Aimee Song sure knows how to experiment with a myriad of styles perfect for different occasions, from strolling in sunny LA to being carpet ready for the Oscars.
@zosuen - this young Hong Kong native based in London is cool, minimalistic, and absolutely adorable. If you want to know how to make simple color palettes work or rock an oversized coat, she's your girl.
@the_caroo - Based in the fashion capital of Paris, Caroline exudes French chic from head to toe. Plus, if you want to own bags like the Céline trapeze or the Chanel boy bag, you can simply live variously through her.
@caradelevingne - Cara Delevingne seems to be the face of every brand imaginable now, but if you want to follow more of her daily life as a somewhat regular and quirky 22-year-old like you and me, it's time for you to become 1 of her 9.8m followers.
@doutzen - Dutch model Doutzen Kroes shows you the life of juggling between being a world-traveling model, a wife, and a loving mommy.
@ireneisgood - Korean model Irene Kim has not only the coolest hair, but also some badass style.
P.S. her little brother is a UCLA Bruin!
