There is no better way to be convinced of a garment or get ideas on how to style something than seeing how other people have. Using social media for inspiration and not as a platform of comparison is very important as it offers an opportunity to be positively impacted by those around you.
From magazines to models, moms to beauty gurus, there are so many accounts out there to follow. Here are the best social media accounts I have found for the ultimate outfit inspiration.
Negin Mirsalehi (@negin_mirsalehi)
Fashion forerunner and street style queen, Mirsalehi is one to watch on Instagram. Having a gift for styling designer clothing, Mirsalehi shows how to make looks on the runway suitable for the streets. Although most of her wardrobe consists of higher-end pieces, they are simple enough that you can derive inspiration from and find a cheaper alternative with the same look. From Paris to New York, London to Milan, Mirsalehi sees it all on the runways and keeps you updated of her travels using mainly Instagram and her YouTube channel. If that weren’t enough, she has also created a bee based hair product line, thus highlighting her interest in the environment and a natural look. Follow Mirsalehi to feel inspired with your streetwear and stay up to date on trends in the fashion world.
