10 Instagram accounts for Toronto fashion lovers
Fashion on Instagram isn't difficult to stumble upon. After all, anyone with a smartphone can take an artful shoe selfie (shoesie?), or a melancholy portrait while wearing cool outfit. But there are a handful of Torontonians working their modest phone cameras into something a little more progressive, turning their feeds into a source of inspiration for fashion enthusiasts everywhere.
In a sea of #ootds, these are the names that stood out to me the most - certainly making the hashtag a lot more bearable to peruse. Here are my picks for the 10 must-follow Instagram accounts for fashion lovers in Toronto.
Fashion blogger Vanessa Cesario has an unwavering penchant for all things black and white. Often pulling photos from her blog The Brunette Salad, she posts food, shoes, makeup tips, and a whole lot of crop tops on her Instagram.
MTV FORA art director Jennifer Cheng puts a surreal spin on everything she posts. You won't find a generic outfit post here - instead, look out for offbeat cropping and bizarre locations.
Edward Row has a good eye. Capturing landscapes, old buildings and fashionable friends, his feed is easy to get lost scrolling through.
Monica Moraru, an "artist gyal from the 416," shoots architecture, botany and - of course - selfies with a humble iPhone camera.
Both a photographer and creative director, Othello Grey has an Instagram account filled to the brim with fashion-centric snaps - each one both stunning and slightly unsettling at the same time.
Common Base is a new communications and management consultancy for fashion boutiques and designers. With a mission to add character to the corporate industry, their feed is an inspiration board far from your average.
Dani Reynolds is an urban nomad with an iPhone that captures her boho-chic outfits, picturesque road trips, charming dog friends and sweet snacks.
With a background in photography and videography, it's no surprise artist/director/designer LA has an Instagram account worth a gander. Find edgy outfits, cool sneakers and more than enough selfies here.
Soop Soop's Instagram may be a marketing tool, but the Dundas West store's product-heavy posts are way more stimulating than the standard product shot. Follow for what's new in-store (and fun to look at).
