In life the struggle to stand out from the crowd, style is our greatest weapon. It’s what connects us and divides us. It gives us the power to attract glaring eyes and to hoard off the basic bitches. Whether it’s your perfectly white Adidas or beat up Doc Martens, your style is what makes you who you are. But what’s an outfit without all eyes on it? In comes Instagram, the holy grail of all social media apps that somehow keeps up with the constantly evolving runway.
For the Boys
Now, gentlemen, sometimes we don’t give you all the credit you deserve (A.K.A. when you roll out of bed in the same jersey and sweats from four days ago). When you decide to get all dressed up, though, damn do ya’ll look good.
If trendy hipsters are your thing, you have to follow @oh_anthonio. Anthony Urbano from the great city of New York has shown us what it looks like if Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars shared a closet.
If your style is more dapper and dashing, you should head on over to @jimchapman. Jim Chapman is one of the biggest influencers in the world of men’s style today. His Instagram feed gives us a peek into his personal life while displaying put together, casual–but–extremely–trendy outfits. Guys, if you’re looking for some inspo, go to his Insta and click the tags on his images, maybe one day you could be as beautiful as he is (but probably not).
Another trendy Insta from whom all college boys across the country could use a lesson is @stefanotratto. This Italian hot shot makes casual look sexy unlike the sweatpants that many lovely Syracuse boys decide to wear to class everyday.
For the ladies
With the nice weather coming in there’s finally a time for you to dig into your closet and find that Urban Outfitters dress you bought in September to wear.
For some trendy summer wear fashion tips head to @claudia.cheng. This cutie hails from the West Coast and knows exactly what to throw together for a chill sunny day. Anyone who loves lace and prints will be obsessed with this stylish college gal’s Insta.
Another young up–and–coming style killer is the lovely @jamiegrimstad. An NYC native, Jamie has all the tips and tricks to make a full black on black outfit look dope as fuck, especially with some furry black heels. This style icon rocks the classy but cute look along with her sister India (@indiagrimstad). The two sisters may possibly be the real life versions of Serena and Blair.
An all time favorite is the lovely @somethingnavy. Arielle Noa Charnas is the mom that we all aspire to be. She makes adulting look easy, something that we college kids are not familiar with. Her style makes comfy look cooler than anyone of us can. If you’re looking for some inspiration of what cool adulting looks like then you got to give her a follow. Bonus: Ruby Lou, her ridiculously cute chubby-cheeked daughter, stars in her Insta stories looking just as fly.
