best vintage fashion Instagram accounts

What goes around comes around. While you live through a trend or the peak era of a designer, sometimes you simply aren't aware of the legacy and longing for it to return that will one day rear its head. It's the beauty of rose tinted glasses – the past is always more beautiful than the present day. In fashion, nothing is truer, with our lust for vintage and coveting of archival garments never fully satiated. A beacon of vintage fashion, Instagram is where we regularly turn to for a selection of curated accounts documenting the best of the past. They fill our 'saved' folder with images of Naomi Campbell in Vivienne Westwood, Patti Boyd in Ossie Clark, Shalom Harlow in Alexander McQueen. Here are 20 of the best vintage fashion Instagram accounts to start following, filling your feed with a smattering of archival images to fuel inspiration and musings.
