Let’s start the week with five Instagram accounts you should follow right now; we hand-picked super stylish women whose accounts on Instagram are a fantastic source of fashion inspiration for those who like simple, timeless and chic looks.
1- Harling Ross, classic with a twist
Harling Ross is a writer, brand consultant and stylist. Her previous work is probably best known to you; she was the fashion editor of Man Repeller. Remember the famous online fashion magazine that was cancelled by the political correctness police? Anyway, Harling Ross’ Instagram is outstanding, with daily inspirations for a classic wardrobe with a twist. For Fall 2021, Harling’s choices are embroidered cardigans, shirts with crochet collars and patchworks pieces. The New Yorker with golden locks features many timeless brands outside the mainstream, which gives her account extra points.
2- #ootd with NeverMinDressing
Florence M is a French fashion stylist whose Instagram is a mood board of slow fashion. It means the outfits are timeless and simple but chic. It’s a great inspiration for your office look, lunch with your girlfriends, what to wear in the morning to bring the kids to school, and all our day-by-day styling challenges. We love that look above; denin paired with sneakers but elevated by sophisticated accessories.
3- Vintage inspiration from Sophie Fontanel
The French journalist is 59 years old, but her fashion style is ageless. She knows how to combine high-end brands and vintage founds like anyone. With 255K followers, Sophie Fontanel Instagram will give you some eccentric ideas on mixing different clothes such as menswear, vintage and mainstream fashion. Her free and unique take on dressing
definitely inspires the fun in getting dressed. Here she is wearing Hermès bomber jacket, paired with satin pants and menswear rope belt. It’s chic, it’s timeless and it’s simple.
4- Pernille Teisbaek, Danish girl style
The first time I’ve met Pernille was in a photo shooting in Stockholm; she was doing fashion styling. It was a European shoe retail campaign, not a particularly fashionable brand, but Pernille looked great on the set. It was 2013, and she was already wearing Birkenstock with socks. Since then, her style evolved to something chicer and sexier. She has a Danish nonchalance that we love; chic, simple and timeless. But the edginess is in the proportions of the clothes and the cut, and a splash of colour concentrated in one piece, sometimes a green handbag or an orange kitty heels. I am thrilled to know that she is launching a capsule collection with Mango, hitting the shops just now.
5- Jenny Walton, timeless feminine inspo
Jenny Walton is the account to follow if you are looking for chic classic fashion inspiration. Fashion illustrator, jewellery designer and Scott Schuman- aka The Sartorialist’s wife, take her fashion inspirations from old movies. Not surprising that her icons are Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. In Jenny Watson own words: “So much of what women like Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly wore was simple and timeless.” “They didn’t go crazy with prints or very abstract shapes. They learned what worked for their bodies and stuck to it.” Her wide pleated skirt is one of the must-have pieces this Fall 2021
