In the world of fashion, we can always turn to Milan for a heavy dose of glamour, no matter the season. With iconic designers like Donatella Versace, Miuccia Prada, Valentino (now led by Pierpaolo Piccioli) and Giorgio Armani among the leaders of the Italian fashion helm, and emerging talents like Sunnei and Palm Angels changing up the industry, Italian fashion is a perfect mix of old and new. It is, of course, no surprise that the Milan-based fashion set reflects that blend of traditional luxury and contemporary cool.
It almost seems unfair. Italy has pasta, pizza and the Amalfi Coast. They have wine, Sofia Loren, ancient history, La Dolce Vita and the Tuscan sun. And, if you take one scroll through Fashion Instagram, you'll see that Italy also has some of the best-dressed style stars with diverse styles and endless fresh outfit ideas.
From Tamu McPherson's twist on sophistication and Giorgia Tordini's reinvention of the going-out look to Anna Dello Russo's consistently OTT outfits and Linda's Tol bag collection, here are the Italian influencers we love to follow for style inspiration.…
As the founder of Amina Muaddi, the Milan-based shoe designer is dressing many style stars feet—including Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Kendall Jenners's.
We've loved Tamu for ages, and with every outfit, we fall for her all over again. She's a Gucci queen, master of a fabulous trouser-based look and is always spotted in excellent sunnies.
Anna Dello Russo
Anna Dello Russo is more legend than influencer. As the editor at large for Vogue Japan, she is a fashion-week staple, and as she is a fashion peacock, it's very difficult to miss her in those signature thigh-high boots.
As one half of the designer duo behind The Attico, Gilda is unabashedly outrageous, pushing her personal style to new places with each post. She oscillates from flip-flops and cargo trousers to feathered minidresses and sky-high heels without trying.
As the other half of The Attico, Giorgia is a master of dressing up—from leather trousers to metallic dresses (and, of course, the heels). She's our go-to girl for night-out looks.
Giorgia's sister, Giulia, is equally as glam but much more paired back. Her style is "old" Céline with an '80s twist.
Eleonora is our favourite for the Italian style interpretation of minimalism. Never straying far from earth tones and greyscale hues and her signature Birkin-like hair, she's a must-follow.
Giovanna, known at Bat Gio, brings a sense of playfulness and humour to her every look. Often spotted in fresh-off-the-runway pieces, she loves her signature heart-shaped sunnies and over-the-top props like hundreds of balloons.
There's a Californian cool to Chiara's personal style. Whether she's on the beach or at fashion week, we love following her for that relaxed, carefree approach to fashion.
Patricia Manfield, more recently known as Heir, is the influencer turned musician who's always had an effortless sense of cool. She mixes casual and luxe with ease, like a vintage T-shirt and a Prada bucket hat.
Never far from trying the next big trend, Erika loves spotting cult buys. Be it a Mango two-piece suit or the Loewe sunnies, she's always a step ahead.
Linda consistently subverts classic style with her take on trend-driven styling. She keeps every look simple, but note the details and you'll see her genius (such as carrying the season's It bag).
Diletta, who recently welcomed a baby, just gave us all the maternity style inspiration. Be it cycling shorts and an oversized button-down shirt or a men's blazer and stirrup trousers, she raised the bar on maternity cool.
We love Candela's entirely unique approach to luxury style. Always imbuing her personal style with her funny sense of humour, she's totally herself.
At 21-years-old, the Italian model has walked countless major runways, including opening for the most recent Chanel show. Her job takes her around the world, so follow her for the coolest off-duty looks.
As one of the original bloggers, The Blonde Salad, Chiara has built an empire based on her luxurious life. As a fashion week fixture since bloggers were first on the scene, she's since made headlines for her custom-made Dior wedding dress.
As super-influencer Chiara Ferragni's best friend, Chaira Biasi is never casual, in the best way. Follow her for her next-level holiday outfits.
Fashion model Gabrielle is basically living the life of a Fellini film. Pasta, Italian coastline and hot summer nights… her feed is the perfect escape.
