Pinterest is the ultimate resource for fashion ideas. The social network serves as a virtual pin board, allowing users to highlight and categorize photos, links and videos of anything and everything they find inspiring. If you’re on the hunt for new trends, as well as realistic ways you can incorporate them into your own wardrobe, you’ll definitely want to check out the following ten Pinterest fashionistas:
Best known for the quirky blog Cupcakes and Cashmere, Emily Schuman also maintains a fantastic Pinterest account. From photos of unique braided hairstyles to adorable kitty snapshots, Schuman’s board has it all! Her outfit ideas (which include plenty of denim and plaid) can be found under the aptly-named ‘well fashioned’ section.
Style With Class
If any Pinterest account has a fitting name, it’s Style With Class, a veritable gold mine that offers a wide array of looks straight from the Audrey Hepburn era. In fact, there’s an actual category dedicated solely to Hepburn’s impeccable style, along with sections for Jackie O and Daphnre Guinness.
Sick of fashion magazines that stick solely to style befitting of tall, willowy frames? Ditch that issue of Vogue and head to Eat.Sleep.Wear. There, you’ll find plenty of examples of real women showing off wardrobes that are to die for. The board’s founder, Kimberly, infuses her account with pictures of favorite fashion bloggers from across the web, as well as snapshots of her own stunning outfits.
As a judge on Project Runway and an editor for Marie Claire, style maven Nina Garcia has plenty of credentials to back up her Pinterest account. But even without the long list of accomplishments, she’d still impress pin board visitors with her vast collection of runway trends.
Department stores have finally begun to cotton on to the concept of Pinterest as a marketing tool. And yes, the Bergdorf Goodman board is clearly an advertising gimmick, but that doesn’t diminish its entertainment value. From exclusive preview of new collections to stunning photography from Frieze New York, Bergdorf Goodman’s pins will keep you occupied for hours on end.
Guys need fashion inspiration too, and thanks to photographer and writer Andy Hurvitz, they can now find it via Pinterest. Hurvitz maintains a collection entitled “Men’s Fashion Around The World” which comes complete with well over 4,000 pins, including everything from Nike sneakers to three-piece suits.
If you’re a fan of the vintage look, you’ll definitely want to check out Annie Bell’s Pinterest page. The fashionista categorizes her pins based on their decades of origin, offering glimpses of fancy dresses from the 1800s, as well as plenty of inspiration from 1960s Hollywood and of course, everyone’s favorite World Ward II pin-up girls.
Pinterest is well known as the go-to website for do-it-yourself (DIY) junkies. But some DIY boards are better than others. Skip the standard fare and head for Marlenne’s page, otherwise known as Perfect Circle. This account covers plenty of ground, but is best visited any time you happen to have a jones for DIY projects. Its collection of do-it-yourself pins is divided into four main categories: beauty, fashion, home and other. The fashion finds are particularly useful, as they allow you to greatly expand your stale wardrobe with a few simple tools.
A self-described Londoner in New York City, Katja Anderson is the ultimate fashion photography enthusiast. Her Pinterest account offers plenty of excellent wardrobe ideas, but is best visited for those intrigued by modern photography techniques. With a smorgasbord of subjects ranging from Frida Kahlo to Mick Jagger, Anderson delivers all of the photographic genius found in fashion magazines — with none of the obnoxious ads.
Retail consultant Mark Sikes is all about chic, which is why he includes the term in several all of his Pinterest categories. Whether you’re looking for pictures of chic couples or menswear ideas from the runway, you’ll be sure to find plenty of inspiration on Sikes’ board, which boasts well over 16,000 pins…and counting!
