Keeping things interesting at the office isn't just about bagel Fridays. (Though, it is our favorite day of the week at R29 HQ.) Your wardrobe has a stake in the matter, too. Show up in another boring, black blazer and you've essentially quashed any and all sartorial ambitions you may have had, yet again. But, arrive to
See what we've been up to behind the scenes.
@damselindior's Jacey Duprie has put her picturesque life on display for all of Instagram. Based in West Hollywood, the blogger is showing us the best of everything: food, clothes, beauty, decor, travel, and her domestic discoveries, too. She's also mom to two very cute bulldogs, William and Polly.
Erica Lavelanet is a full-time wardrobe stylist and part-time sartorial muse via Instagram. (She's a favorite here at Refinery29, too.) What's more, we love Lavelanet's addictive fashion feed, @ericalave, where she's crafting innovative head-to-toe outfits for her followers to recreate almost daily.
Tamu McPherson is the founder and photographer behind street-style website All the Pretty Birds, not to mention the former editor-in-chief of Grazia.it. She's keeping her feed, @tamumcpherson, fresh with colorful, often-quirky outfits, and she's also snapping her favorite looks seen on a host of other stylish folk. At heart, this pretty lady is a fashion nerd through and through.
Meet Queensland-born fashion and beauty blogger Carmen Hamilton (@chroniclesofher_). Not only does she feature her enviable style on her site, but Hamilton's penchant for effortless, undone outfits is evident in her 'grams as well, giving us some French-girl glamour from Down Under. And, from what we gather, this Australian babe loves neutral, contemporary clothes (with a twist), showcased in her amazing collection of coats and blazers.
Nicole Loher's handle, @nicoleloher, provides an inside look into the life of everyday, New York City fashion girls. This particular girl heads social media and communications for designer Nanette Lepore — meaning Instagram is kind of her job. As for her personal account? It's a bevy of pretty clothes, perfectly swirled ice-cream cones, and other random, but expertly curated, musings.
Sarah Mikaela, the part-Danish, part-Australian fashion blogger behind Framboise Fashion, is constantly infusing bold pops of colors into her everyday wares, never content with just blending into the background. She's based in London, which means you can follow her 'grams (@srhmikaela<) all about the city — and it's not just those obligatory tourist snaps either.
Blogger and Lucky contributor Margie Ashcroft understands it's tougher for plus-size women to find their place in the fashion sphere. That's why she's catering her writing to curvy women, sizes 12 and up, and helping them strategically nail each season's best trends. Check out her 'grams, @margieplus, for tons of style inspiration, no matter your clothing number.
Vancouver-based model turned blogger Vanessa Hong, @thehautepursuit, is keeping verry busy on Instagram, posing in black bikinis and edgy, minimalist wares. She often employs the cerulean-blue ocean waters as her backdrop. All in all, her fashion aesthetic is living, breathing proof that pared down is in no way synonymous with boring. Outfits aside, check out her close-up jewelry 'grams to see what we mean.
Freelance consultant and stylist Kate Foley, @real_kate_foley, is never one to shy away from bold prints and colors. But, it's her sartorial versatility that's truly impressive — her pared-down outfits, like this black tee and gingham skirt ensemble, emphasize that the pretty lady has more tricks than kooky florals up her sleeve.
As the brains behind fashion blog Cheetah Is the New Black, Alicia Lund curates all things in her life that are style-, home-, travel-, and beauty-related. So, essentially everything. It kind of goes without saying that this Northern Californian's feed, @aliciamlund, is a whole lot of like. Oh, and a whole lot of leopard print, too.
Atlantic-Pacific blogger Blair Eadie (@blaireadiebee) has the whole feminine-with-a-twist look on lockdown. Whether she’s pairing funky Phillip Lim sweaters with full skirts or sequins with Converse, it’s a signature we’ve come to expect of the pretty lady’s feed.
West Coast transplant Dylan Suarez is currently based in New York City, taking on the Big Apple one graffiti ‘gram at a time. Though, her California roots really shine through in this tie-dye maxi-dress and leather jacket pairing. Dig her style? Follow @dylanasuarez for plenty more where that came from.
Street-style photographer and Vogue Australia contributor Jessie Bush may love her black and white wares, but she’s also infusing a healthy dose of color and energy into her feed, @wethepeoplestyle, and blog. Bush knows how to pick the visually arresting backdrops that'll elicit lots of likes.
Whoever says a bold statement can’t be made in black and white clearly hasn’t checked out Joellen Lu’s Instagram handle, @joellenlove. Sure, the vintage storeowner favors a muted color palette, but we promise you won't feel at all bored scrolling through her snaps.
Meet Tesa Jurjasevic. She’s a fashion blogger hailing from Slovenia, though you’d easily mistake her style for that of a born-and-bred New Yorker. Heck, her handle, @magnifiqueblog, has already logged a ‘gram of H&M Studio's fall collection — available to shop of as of this morning.
We wish our Instagram feeds looked like @thatssotee’s: carefully arranged breakfast tablescapes, gorgeous lighting wherever she goes, and a strong OOTD game. Add in some seriously cozy accessories — like this Zara scarf — and we've got major Insta-envy.
During NYFW, not even bloggers have time to stop and pose for their OOTD. Despite the hustle and bustle, Fr´ncia Cooper's wrap-around striped blazer keeps her looking sharp, while her patent-leather Acne boots add a cool vibe."
Meet Topshop personal shopper Monikh Dale. When she's not at her day job, she's layering oversized sweaters over skirts and dresses to make the perfect outfits and sharing inspirational quotes on Instagram. You can follow her at @monikh.
We Wore What's Danielle Bernstein is front-row ready in Rodebjer for NYFW. Her burnt-orange blazer and trousers will undoubtedly set the street-style photographers' hearts (and lenses) aflutter. Bonus points for your comfy shoes, Bernstein.
Why do we constantly fawn over French girl style? Exhibit A: Blogger Adenorah's masterful mix of high-low at London Fashion Week. Her Instagram is an endless feed of style inspiration.
Blogger Kristabel Plummer's plaid coat has us longing for fall. But, before we get too ahead of ourselves, we can style our autumn toppers by popping them over dresses and pairing them with fun sandals — resulting in a perfect end-of-summer look.
Kayture’s Kristina Bazan is a vision in this daring, open-back Jo No Fui dress and Wanda Nylon skirt. To finish London Week Fashion in style, she chose the sartorial road less traveled and it paid off in spades.
British blogger Hannah Crosskey shows us how to bypass pants this fall on Instagram. Thigh-high boots, oversized knits over dresses... We just might bench our corduroys this season.
Fashion Week may have moved on from London, but Aida Domenech's Topshop suit gives off British It-Girl vibes in Milan. The Spanish blogger's crisp burgundy ensemble, playfully accented with leopard Louboutin lace-ups, is great for shows, sightseeing, and living la dolce vita.
Models aren't the only ones to have off-duty style down to a T. Take a tip from boutique owner and L'Officiel Singapore ambassador Yoyo Cao's Insta, @yoyokulala: Tuck in your T-shirt, and don't fear the oversized denim.
Fabrizia Siena's layered look has us seeing spots. The Italian blogger pairs her double-polka-dot ensemble with a bright, top-handle bag and a cheeky necklace. Her accessories bring the whole outfit full-circle!
This is how you wear pajamas out of the house. Tamu McPherson embodies cozy-chic with a slightly undone button-down, wide-legged trousers, and cozy velvet slippers.
Blogger Sara Escudero proves you can do Fashion Week on a budget. The Spanish beauty took Milan by storm in a Zara dress and H&M duster coat — a girl after our own hearts.
Blogger Patricia Manfield takes a moment to adjust the bow neck on her Stella McCartney top. While the whole look is very feminine, it's not overly prim: Her understated accessories and the bamboo in her Gucci top-handle bag give the ensemble a more casual feel. It's true what they say: It's all in the details.
Once upon a time, simple, single pairs of stud and hoop earrings reigned supreme, and dramatic piercings were strictly for punk girls who talked about Dead Kennedys a lot, and got detention more than was advisable. But, now, more ladies than ever are dipping a toe into the multiple-piercing trend — which means it's

If the stylish women of the world's fashion capitals share one thing, it's confidence. Whether the local flavor skews more cosmopolitan, glamorous, avant grade, or preppy, the women who wear it best never do things halfway. In Milan, the style seems to be split straight down the middle between women who like things aread
