As we’ve entered into 2020, there’s a complete sense of newness hitting us all. Whether it’s new year resolutions or resettling after the holidays, it’s all about a bigger and better vibe. I don’t know about you, but for me that always includes an IG revamp.
It’s almost like an energy cleanse to create space for the new wave of inspiration and aesthetics that’ll help propel me into the year. But the never-ending rise of Instagram IT Girls makes it hard to filter out the real from the one-hit-wonders. So, if you’re honing in on the change in the air or just crave a fresh flow of style, we’ve got you covered.
Whether you know these girls or not, they have sunk their heels into the style game and show no signs of leaving anytime soon. Ranging across streetwear to city girl glam, you’ll find at least one non-basic girl to keep you inspired.
Megan Adelaide Schaefer
Mood: Understated Chic
If I didn’t know any better, I would swear that Megan was French. Something about her mix of patterns, trench coats and midi-dresses introduces a smidge of Paris onto the streets of LA.
Spattered across her page you can find a perfectly curated window into her life including beauty heroes such as Glossier, envy worthy trips to Aspen with Chanel and prints that bring Jean Paul Gaultier into the Gen Z era.
Mood: Glam.. But Only for the Girls
As with any stylist, Emili Sindlev’s feed is full of looks. Bringing Carrie Bradshaw into a whole new decade, she has just the right balance of wavy locks, Manolo Blahniks and Sex and the City memes that we love.
Delivering the perfect dose of colours and patterns, the Danish Elle cover star has amassed a following of over 300k. Through her playful adaptation of current trends, she was awarded Elle’s Style Icon of the Year award in 2018.
If you’re not familiar with Aleali May, the stylist is the first female collaborator to design unisex Air Jordan 1s. The Cali native champions the fusion of streetwear and high fashion which can be seen across her work.
Since starting her career at RSVP Gallery, Aleali has built a strong brand name working with the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Kendrick Lamar. Drawing inspiration from Baby Girl herself, Aleali has monopolised the cool girl aesthetic.
Mood: Straight Vibes
If you’re looking for the dopest cosy girl style, then Peggy Gou is the girl for you. Despite starting her career as an editor at Harper’s Bazaar Korea, the multi-hyphenate has gained notoriety as a DJ and founder of Kirin, her clothing label.
She’s mastered a style that seamlessly combines your boyfriend’s holiday shirts with the IT bag of the moment. Boasting over 1 million followers, the Korean influencer shows no signs of slowing down.
Mood: Calm, Cool & Sophisticated
Anaa is just one of those girls that looks good in whatever she wears. Drawing inspiration from 90s Bollywood, her cues from this iconic era have rooted her style in modesty with an edge.
Collectively, her timeline narrates the intersection between fashion and culture. The Pakistani model and co-founder of One Stop Away splits her time between high-end influencer events, styling gigs and serving us the looks we need.
