Instagram is good for a lot of shameful things: stalking exes, spot popping videos, avocados. Lots of avocados. But one thing you can use it for (and admit to) is improving the way you dress, square by stylish square. The platform is a hotbed of even hotter fire ‘fits, but you have to know where to find them. With more than a billion active users, it can be a struggle to keep pace with the best, the most stylish, the most worthy of a follow. To save you sticking your thumb where it’s not wanted or needed, we’ve curated 50 of the best accounts, whether you lean street or sartorial, from sneakers to six-figure watches.
A wise man once said, “you’re only as good as the ‘gram you keep”. We say ‘wise’, it was our social media manager. But he had a point. In order to be able to advise on which other accounts are deserving of double taps, we had to curate a worthy one ourselves. From the most stylish lookbooks to our best daily articles, we’d humbly say we nailed that one.
Stylish Grid Game
Buying a shiny new piece of menswear is all well and good, but what exactly do you wear it with? Well, Stylish Grid Game holds the answer with a series of easily replicated looks using the season’s must-buys.
If you prefer a polished getup, take your cue from Sharp Grids. The flat-lay maestro provides a masterclass in smart-casual looks, with shots passing on trends in favour of a more classic approach.
If you admire shoes, denim and design (and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?), give the flat-lay king Phil Cohen a follow. Expect lots of navy, plenty of minimalist sneakers and a whole heap of foolproof looks.
While most flat-lay accounts focus on timeless menswear staples, Jay Beez gives the traditional format a streetwear kick. Which means fewer Oxford shirts, and more logo tees.
Alabama isn’t exactly known as a fashion capital in the US. But that hasn’t stopped Allen Walker from building one of the coolest accounts to show off the deep south’s even deeper understanding of style. Not a Texan tuxedo in sight.
