Instagram should have been on your radar since Facebook spent a pretty penny ($1B to be exact) to buy it, and no matter how you use it (let me guess: to post photos of your eggs benedict at brunch?), you’ve got to admit it’s addictive. I mean, where else (besides Pinterest) do you get such an up-to-the-minute barrage of aspirational, inspirational, and artsy photos? Plus, those filters are pretty life-changing.
Behold, the 50 accounts you absolutely must follow if you’re fan of fashion (and I’m guessing you are if you’re reading this site). From street style stars to your favorite designers, fashion bloggers, and retailers, behold, the best fashion accounts of Instagram, in no particular order:
