15 Instagram accounts to follow that nail the art of street style

street style Instagram accounts

Although traditionally, we look to the streets of Paris and Milan Fashion Week for the ultimate sartorial lesson in the art of 'street style,' the past year has forced us to lean on a more virtual source of inspiration. Thankfully, the realms of Instagram street style know no bounds, connecting us with some of the most stylish accounts across the globe.

Those who have become masters of the 'grassroots' approach to styling blend the worlds of high-fashion and cultural phenomenon to create a fashion blueprint that is uniquely theirs, enviably effortless and unapologetically cool. Their Instagram feeds as eye-catching as their wardrobes, we long for any opportunity to embody these sartorial mavens.

Below, we're sharing the street style Instagram accounts we return to time and time again for unparalleled inspiration.

A post shared by Pernille Teisbaek (@pernilleteisbaek)


Copenhagen-born Pernille Teisbaek is no stranger to the street style game. The stylist and creative director has been perfecting her Scandi aesthetic prior to the days of Instagram, leading the way in minimalist, refined styling. An endless source of enviable sweaters, sports aesthetic and eye-catching accessories we never tire of seeing Pernille pop up on our feed.

A post shared by JOSEFINE H. J (@josefinehj)

Josefine H.J is the undeniable queen of monochrome and both her street style and her Instagram account prove it. She was one of the first to remind us that yes, oversized men's tailoring is in fact sexy, and is our constant source of inspiration when it comes to styling trousers and an open button down shirt. Not to mention that her accompanying accessories are fit for sartorial royalty – which, of course, she is.

A post shared by COCO (@coco_pinkprincess)


We never thought we'd be taking street style cues from a 10 year old, but Tokyo-based tastemaker, Coco, puts all of our wardrobes to shame. Takashi Murakami-era Louis Vuitton and an excellent collection of statement hats, our life-long fashion dream is to dress just like Coco when we grow up.

For those who prefer relaxed, classic silhouettes and colour palettes, look no further than London's Monikh. Armed with a collection of dreamy dresses and perfectly tailored coats and blazers, her practical approach to street style dressing makes for the perfect foundation to any wardrobe.

A post shared by MATILDA DJERF (@matildadjerf)

Matilda Djerf is certainly a newcomer on our radar of street style mavens, but since we discovered her style, we haven't looked back. Based in Paris, her approach to fashion is certainly more playful – think ruffled sleeves, a touch of hot pink and the most eye-catching accessories. In fact, her street style is so covetable, she founded her own fashion label based off her style. So now, we can all dress like her!

 

6. @lefevrediary

It's no secret that models have the street style situation down-pat in 2021. Amy Julliette Lefévre plays this field particularly well; her moody, sophisticated approach perfect for the street and the office. The tailored short; the Prada loafer. Heaven.

A post shared by Camille Charriere (@camillecharriere)

Camille Charriere is really the whole package. Not only does she know how to do glam really, really well, but she knocks street style out of the park too. She's the kind of girl that could be out on the street in her pyjamas and still look chic. Her wardrobe is loaded with all the hallmarks of great street style; timeless cashmere jumpers, a great selection of denim and endless button downs. No matter what she has on, she always manages to bring an air of flirtatiousness to every outfit, which we love.

A post shared by Stephanie Broek (@stephaniebroek)

There are few people who can inspire us to wear a denim bustier, and Stephanie Broek happens to be one of them. While her style is for the most part, refined and tonal, the way she incorporates more daring pieces to achieve the street style aesthetic encourages us to be more adventurous with our sartorial choices.

Ageless styling and an unbeatable collection of covetable Bottega Veneta pieces, it's impossible not to fawn over Grece Ghanem. Please wrap us in this trench coat.

 

10. @aminamuaddi

Being one of the most coveted shoe designer and a street style master go hand in hand, especially when you happen to be Amina Muaddi. A slightly different approach to the minimalist styling courtesy of some of our favourite Scandinavian trendsetters; Muaddi's street style is for those who want to make life their runway. Almost always in heels (her own creations of course), Muaddi is the blueprint for adventurous street style.

A scroll through artist and stylist Cheri's Instagram feed is always a necessary reminder to be more experimental with our street style ensembles. Uniquely tailored pieces, vibrant colour combinations and an icy blonde pixie cut to match – she has the street style formula down to a T.

A post shared by Marie von Behrens (@mvb)

Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy meets Princess Diana aesthetic in the form of Marie Von Behrens. Expert layering, covetable knitwear and a jaw-dropping LBD sprinkled here and there.

A post shared by Olja Ryzevski (@oljaryz)

Based across Berlin and Amsterdam, Olja Ryzevski is a moodboard for all things fashion and design. Her street style, although fairly minimal, is extremely approachable and practical – which is probably one of the reasons why her account is so successful. Sometimes, the hardest part is getting dressed for the every day, and Olja serves as the ultimate source of inspiration.

An unquestionable sense of confidence oozes from Newcastle-based Renia Jaz, the woman behind @venswifestyle. Always across the latest sartorial trends and wearing them in her own way, she reminds us that the key to nailing street style dressing starts with playing to our strengths.
