Instant fashion inspiration is a luxury of the social media age. Not sure what to wear to work? No problem! Just scroll Instagram for some pre-made style memory-jogging. In the market for some fresh ideas? Simple! Scroll your feed and voila! a plethora of squares appear featuring influencer style.
However, with all the overflowing options it can be more saturating than Sydney’s weather right now. Endless influencer images that, after a while of thumb-numbing scrolling, become just a blur of beautiful. So, to help you cut through, and revive the wardrobe you’re currently “just not feeling”, we’ve peeled out 5 looks that stopped us mid-screen roll. Each are easy to achieve and very wearable for real life. Here’s how to style them and where to shop the pieces right now, ready for a sartorially successful weekend…
(Sydneysiders: just add umbrella and trench…)

Marie von Behrens does simple, sexy style so well. Always fresh faced and with naturally relaxed hair, her looks are ones for the everyday woman. This take on a normal tee outfit is given an uplift by wearing cropped, checked trousers rather than denim. Pair with the Balenciaga trainer mega-trend if your budget will stretch and a cross-body belt bag that will be as practical as it is on trend.

We love Oksana because of her dedication to classic, chic, (old) Céline style. White on white is a never-fail (provided you stay away from toddlers, chocolate and bench seats) and makes you look fresh and tan even when you are neither. Tuck a good quality tank into a pair of mid-rise, straight leg jeans and layer with some gold pendants. A pair of slides, some sunnies and classic leather belt will complete the look.

One of favourites, Nadia Fairfax has so much fun with fashion it’s impossible not to want to shop her style. Love the simple layering of this look. A white shirt under a wrap dress that cinches at the waist, with a pair of trainers to keep things casual. This look is perfect for the in-between season.

The Aussie founder of Chronicles of Her, Camen Hamilton lives her best, most fashionable life all around the world. This look, so perfect for NYC (above), but also for the Aussie homeland, is a cute combo of fishtail skirt, fitted tank and sweet strappy heels. Such a welcome alternative to a tee and shorts on those particularly hot afternoons.

The Aussie kween of laidback influencer style, we’re most used to seeing Andi wear jeans and a tee like nobody’s business. However, this mix-up of feminine skirt with a printed tee and casual slides is just enough to inspire you out of your daily what-to-wear rut. Wear that detailed, OTT skirt you never do, or invest in one you didn’t realise was just so versatile.
