Get yourself out of a style rut and live vicariously through the Instagram of fashion’s social media elite. Our friends at Marie France Asia tell us the 7 accounts you need to follow now.
There’s no denying it, blogging and social media have turned into big business. With bloggers popping up on every corner of Instagram wanting a slice of the fashion pie, it can be hard to keep up with the who’s who on the blogosphere. But after sifting through the pool of social media talents and putting aside the high-profile – and often, over-hyped – personalities, we managed to find those who truly inspire us. We’re talking about a more mature generation of bloggers and fashionistas who juggle work, play and family while still looking their best.
We may be drawn to their lifestyles, their everyday shenanigans and even their personal lives, but the thing that keeps us coming back for more is of course, their style. Our personal fashion choices can be dictated by what they wear simply because they make it look so good while having so much on their plate.

1. Marissa Webb (@marissawebb)
The creative director of Banana Republic perfectly embodies her brand’s classic edgy style. Marissa frequently shares stories of her childhood and plenty of inspirational material on her Instagram account, alongside daily #ootds of course.

2. Hanneli Mustaparta (@hannelim)
She’s a former supermodel, photographer and streetstyle star. Hanneli can do no wrong in the style department and it looks like she’s passing that skill down to her niece – seen here wearing Margiela at fashion week. They sure start them young!

3. Carmen Hamilton (@chroniclesofher_)
Always looking chic while juggling between blogging, writing for Vogue Australia and curating the beauty column at the-file.com, we definitely have to take a master class with Carmen. She’s all about keeping things to a minimum but still standing out from the crowd with well-picked individual pieces.

4. Hedvig Sagfjord Opshaug (@hedvigso)
Can you believe Opshaug is a mother to a little toddler? We first noticed her style while she was #dressingthebump while carrying the pregnancy weight of her daughter. Now, she continues the style streak after going back to her original weight and looking fit with her little girl in tow. Here’s to all the yummy mummies out there!

5. Natasha Ndlovu (@natashandlovu)
Part-time model, full-time blogger. This long-legged Londoner’s style is one we’d love to keep emulating for our casual office days. Her Instagram’s filled with all kinds of visual inspo to get you breezing through your week so you’re sure to get ‘liking’!

6. Krystal Bick (@krystal_bick)
Krystal’s the type of New Yorker you’d stumble upon on Instagram and immediately wish you had her life. She works in the Shopping and Commerce department of Google, so how can we not be a little jealous? Her Instagram snaps include sights around New York, her daily sartorial selections and plenty of flatlays.

7. Samantha Wennerstrom (@couldihavethat)
We can’t get enough of Samantha’s white-washed feed. Her curation of images include vacation landscapes, easy outfit ideas and plenty of cameos from her beautiful baby daughter. How sweet!
