Six Inspirational Instagram Accounts to Follow in 2017…
Instagram is a huge platform with millions of daily users, so setting out to find accounts that stand out to you can be quite difficult. Fortunately, I’m here to point you in a few directions. I have six users that I think shine above the rest; next to each username, I’ll tell you what I think makes their account worth looking out for. Whether you’re looking for something that displays original style or even an aesthetic feed, it’s worth taking a read of the list below…
Here’s my list of six inspirational Instagram accounts:
@deaddsouls – Put simply, Lydia is lovely and her account is brilliant. Her pictures are unique and follow a light, pastel pink theme; she mainly focuses on fashion. I love how she highlights her unique perspective through each of her shots, and displays her individual sense of style. One of my favourite things about Lydia is that, despite having almost 300k followers, she often takes the time to reply to the hundreds of comments she gets. She also tries to get to know her followers through asking questions in her captions and by responding. If you like 90s-based and grunge-inspired fashion, then you should definitely check out her account!
@pinkkalien – Paula follows a similar theme to her sister, above, and generally sticks to a light, pastel pink theme. She also likes to focus on fashion and is often posting pics of her outstanding #ootd’s. Despite the similar sort of theme, Paula still manages to capture unique shots and is also always, always connecting with her followers. Her pictures are also light and have an airy feel to them, and her feed flows together effortlessly. She’s lovely, and I would definitely recommend that you take a look at her account!
@kimiperi – A few others came to mind when compiling my list of inspirational Instagram accounts, but @Kimiperi definitely deserves to be on the list. The vibrancy of her feed is what stood out to me at first, and honestly, her account blew me away. Kimiperi is a fashion blogger who has a style that is completely her own – I would best label it as a cross between grunge, gothic and ‘witch-like’ (apologies if this description comes across as offensive, that is not the intention). The second thing that I love about her account, is that her pictures are not only vibrant but very sharp – particularly in close-up shots. Being able to see every detail of her latest statement pieces is awesome. You’ll also notice that her feed seems to follow a pale, almost-lilac coloured theme, which is not something that I’ve come across anywhere else on the social media platform.
@oliviaemilyx – Emily is a UK-based fashion blogger, who displays her sense of style through various, alternatively-angled shots. She has a dark/gothic look, although what really sets her apart is her theme. Her feed seems to consist of green and black, which she uses to contrast beautifully with her physical appearance – most often, her dark, strawberry-blonde hair. It creates a stunning effect; one that I would suggest you should see for yourself!
@aliencreature – Her account is a mix between fashion and lifestyle. She takes pictures not only for their aesthetic appeal, but to also create artistic shots with unique compositions. For this reason, unusual objects are usually placed together, within them; creating a wonderful look. Her account had to be placed on my list of inspirational Instagram accounts. She really does allow her creativity to show within her feed, and it features a lot of blues, purples, and browns – another colour palette that isn’t as common used on Instagram.
@songofstyle – Last but by no means least is @songofstyle. Aimee is the Instagram queen of fashion with a whopping 4.3 million followers! Her shots consist of her #ootd’s, beautiful scenery, and general lifestyle photos that go well with the rest of her feed. She does a lot of travelling, which explains the variety of photos taken, but I mostly love her account because she posts what she likes without feeling the need to follow a particular colour theme – something that I’m aspiring to do. Her feed is a nice escape from reality and is incredibly immersive. For this reason, I would recommend you give her a search!
So, those are my recommendations – let me know what you think! Do you have any Instagram users who inspire you? Also, if you found this useful, please share. It would mean the world to me. 🙂
