It's safe to say our editors spend more time than average person trawling through Instagram's most stylish feeds. Our knowledge is pretty encyclopedic (if we do say so ourselves): We know who to go to for wedding-guest dresses or the latest trainer trends, and we can easily reel off a list of girls who can be relied on for high-street gems. Yes, it's slightly pointless knowledge for most areas of life, but when it comes to style and shopping inspiration? We're your people.
While we love the variety IG offers, we each have a handful of influencers we turn to time and time again—individuals whose style captures our imagination and whose outfits never fail to make us reach for our credit cards. If you're trying to find new people to follow, you'd be hard-pressed to find a more stylish bunch than the below. With summer finally making a tentative appearance, we're bringing you the women who are nailing warm-weather styling right now. Each editor has picked one influencer who simply gets it right time and time again.
Hannah Almassi, editor in chief: "Okay, so her closet is jam-packed full of ultra-special things like (old) Celine and Bottega Veneta, but there's still something so quiet and surprisingly attainable about Natasha Goldeberg's wardrobe. The Russian stylist and buyer has an impeccable taste level and is adept at rewearing these investment pieces, but it's also her understanding of what works for her petite frame that I enjoy following due to the fact I'm 5-foot-1. Unlike a lot of short-girl fashion advice that's often dished out (like don't wear big silhouettes, or always have heels on), I appreciate that Natasha bucks all the traditional notions and looks totally laid-back yet polished in her oversized dresses, flat sandals and big coats. And yes, I'd like her haircut too, please. And sunglasses. And swimwear. Just gimme."
Emma Spedding, deputy editor: "If I could dress like anyone this summer, it'd be Shiona Turini. She doesn't shy away from any trends (the woman successfully wore a tie-dye suit the other day) and is one of the most glamorous people I follow on Instagram. She wears Altuzarra, Jacquemus and Mugler to the beach, so how she dresses is a complete fantasy to me, but I could spend all day staring at her feed."
Nell Block, assistant editor: "Fashion should be fun, and Ada knows exactly how to inject this into every outfit she wears. I always turn to her page when I want inspiration for pairing mismatched prints or bold colours. Often, the kind of silhouettes she goes for are more classic, so the fit is flattering, but she's never afraid to experiment and try stuff out, such as cycling shorts or a sheer skirt. And you know what? I've yet to find an outfit I didn't like."
Mica Ricketts, deputy beauty editor: "I always struggle with summer dressing. I hate being hot but also hate showing off too much skin with my summer outfits. A dilemma indeed. Thankfully, ASOS Lesley has already been pulling it out the bag with her stylish warm-weather outfits. I'll definitely be taking a leaf out of her book when dressing this season. She has been stepping out in lots of gorgeous floral dresses paired with trainers or chunky sandals (ideal for someone like me who can't comprehend wearing a dress with heels). I've even spotted the perfect mustard jumpsuit in her feed, which I'll be adding to my shopping list."
As for me: Okay, what isn't there to love about Megan Adelaide's style? I genuinely struggled to pick four outfits from her feed because I fawn over every single thing she wears. I've never been one of those people who counts down the days until they can get out their summer wardrobes, so when warm weather hits, I find myself feeling a little lost, style-wise. Enter: Megan. This girl manages to look cool, pulled-together and just on the right side of androgynous all at the same time. I'll be copying her favourite getup of a floaty skirt, a smart blazer and chunky trainers all summer long. #StyleGoals.
