Fashion is a visual industry. We decide what to wear based on how it looks. We sacrifice ease for style daily. The more of a fashionista you are, the more familiar you are with this mindset. Fashion is also a personal industry. Yes, we are bombarded by brands trying to capture our attention and win our loyalty, but the ultimate decision is ours. How we like to dress, what we think looks good on us, and what we can afford. (The last point should matter more often. Just saying.) How do you learn the ins and outs of a visual, personal industry? Instagram, of course! You must be careful to follow the right bloggers and brands, but do your research and you’ll have dozens of fashion gurus at your fingertips. Here are my top eleven fashion Instagrams you should be following.

You get a double-dose of fashion fun with this trendy Instagram. Fill your day with hilarious quotes and an occasional peek into some of the world’s best closets.
There’s food porn and then there’s jewelry porn. The best pieces may cost millions, but it’s free to ogle.
Miranda Kerr (@mirandakerr)

How does a pizza backpack with “Beevus and Butthead” style cartoons sound? Even if you don’t aspire to be an alternative Cali-girl, these zany looks are magnetic.
