Instagram and Fashion: 5 Emerging Instagrammers

There is no doubt that Instagram is one of the most popular photo-sharing platforms available to the masses. If you don’t know what Instagram is, the app that is available for your smartphone gives users the option to edit and share photos with quirky filters. Instagrammers’ latest masterpieces can be shared with their followers.

It has become a great way for fashionistas to showcase their style and inspire their followers to express themselves through the clothes they wear and the photos they share. Because of this, I have found some of my favorite Instagrammers to inspire Luevo readers.

Meet fashion blogger Pari Ehsan. One look at her Instagram feed and I was instantly entranced. Her photos exhibit beautiful pieces of artwork found in galleries and studios from all around the world alongside her alluring outfits, stunning makeup and elegant hairstyles. On her website you can read her admirable take on each design and even learn about her ensemble. It’s no wonder she has over 200K Instagram followers.

Christina Caradona is fashion and lifestyle blogger based in New York City. Her feed is the perfect blend of citystyle meets avant-garde. Although her outfits are beyond good-looking, it is on her blog where you can actually find out what she is wearing in each photo plus gain exclusive know-how on the ways she keeps herself looking radiant and healthy. Her 135K friends on Instagram probably love her fashion sense as much as I do.

Vintage lover, Steffy Degreff, is a happily married, doggy-momma who launched Steffy’s Pros and Cons  back in 2011. Her photos on Instagram are what originally caught my eye because they are so lively and colourful, not to mention, stylish. However it was her just as nicely-polished, blog that stole my heart with all its trendy posts and photos of her dog, Claude Pepper. Find out what Degreff is wearing at the bottom of each blog post. 51K followers is nothing to look past and this instagrammer is definitely on her way up.

This Instagrammer’s name is Bonnie Barton and her Instagram photos are some of the cutest I have seen. Almost every one of her posts has her signature hazy filter and her lucky 120K followers get to see some adorable cats, every once in a while. But what I loved the most were her charming outfits. I can tell she is a fan of floral and lace, but she always finds ways to switch it up with different prints or styles while maintaining that feminine approach. Learn what she is wearing from her blog,  Flashes of Style.

Last, but certainly not least, we meet “aliencreature”, a self-proclaimed martian who happens to have great style. Her metallic-purple hair is one of the things her followers admire most about her but when looking through her website, Alien Creaturex. it became clear that they love her edgy fashions as much as I. Although she is not an official fashion blogger, she definitely inspires her 320K followers to push the boundaries and take risks with the clothes they wear.

Introducing Guest Blogger Jonika

When it comes to fashion blogging Jonika takes most of her inspiration from travel, music and theatre. She recently graduated from The University of Guelph-Humber for public relations and media studies. Her well-rounded taste in a variety of subjects is what makes writing about fashion more enjoyable for her because fashion is incorporated into many different things.

Long before the widely popular song ‘Thrift Shop’ dominated the music charts, finding a great buy for an incredible price was, and still is why Jonika loves to go thrift shopping. She finds that mixing older and newer pieces together makes for a more unique look. Also, this lessens the chance of someone wearing the same outfit as her at an event, which is every woman’s nightmare.

Jonika draws her style from the love she has for hip-hop music and South Korean fashion. Hip Hop artists such as Azealia Banks, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino adds inspiration to her wardrobe. Jonika’s love for Korean entertainment is where her adoration for their fashion comes from.

Her favourite and most recent purchase is her black cutout booties pictured below. They are super chic, cute but still can be worn in an edgy way, which sums up Jonika’s fashion sense.

Traveling gives people the opportunity to discover more about themselves and the world they’re surrounded by. Jonika uses this idea of traveling to study fashion intently from around the world. Fashion can change drastically depending on location, weather, people etc. The importance of travel for Jonika encourages her to learn about other cultures and their fashion. Ultimately, it is not just about fashion but also about the learning experience that accompanies it. She is currently planning a trip to Spain as she finds the architecture moving there.
