The Top 11 Instagram Accounts to Follow
It's 2013 and Instagram, the social networking and photo-sharing hub, has become the online place to see and be seen. (Instagram's quick rise to popularity includes a $1 billion acquisition by Facebook.) For the fashion-minded, Instagram is a mobile destination for the best in beauty and style, from inspiration to education to shopping and beyond.
Thanks to its visual nature, Instagram is a great place to get inspired by style and beauty looks you love.
Fresh out of manicure ideas? Before you opt for the same old coat of varnish, check out some of Instagram's most prolific polishers. @Wahnails is chock full of professional-quality nail art while @amazing_pretty regularly posts DIY nail art offering unique designs and patterns that actually seem doable for the non-nail pro.
Style watchers and style setters will find no shortage of fashion inspiration on Instagram where well-heeled Instagrammers post everything from 'what I wore' images to street fashion to designer duds with amazing aplomb. @bergdorfs, the official account of Bergdorf Goodman, is flush with product pictures, fresh from the backroom at Bergdorf's. @facehunter rounds up the hautest looks from trendsetters and towns across the world, providing a sort of global style inspiration. And then there's@ChiaraFerragni; we're enamored with this student and blogger (www.theblondesalad.com) who New York Magazine called, 'one of the biggest breakout street-style stars.'
You may not technically be able to buy anything on Instagram but, with a click of a button, Instagram can certainly lead you to the best beauty and fashion finds. Princess P jewelry's Instagram account, @queenpee, not only shares arm candy galore, think bangles, chains, evil eyes, spikes and the like, but also posts special offers and incentives to be used in their online store.@fashionaddictx0 regularly posts items from a variety of online stores as well as special offers on featured items. Finally, @Damselindisdress posts accessories, clothing and the like, all available from their online store, www.didd.co.
It's amazing how much you can learn through photos, and Instagrammers offer not only images, but also education and how-tos for some of the hottest beauty trends. @thebeautydept, the Instagram account for the popular Lauren Conrad website www.thebeautydepartment.com, offers up DIY beauty tips featuring nail art, hair styles, makeup tricks and more. And @msdanti is a MAC makeup artist who posts gorgeous photos of intricate makeup, natural hair tips and more.
Of course, what would a story about the top Instagram accounts be without a plug of our own Prettycity.com Instagram account, @officialprettycity? Filters? We love 'em! Gratuitous beauty product pictures? Heck, yeah! And, an occasional Instacontest for those who love winning beauty products and trends as much as they love watching them.
