Staff Picks: Instagram Accounts To Follow For Young Women


When you're checking the 'gram every 20 minutes or so, it's easy to get bored with the same content. The good news is our staff has come together to bring your our favorite Instagram accounts. We hope you enjoy, and let us know if we missed anything.  

@ashleybrookedesigns: This is our go-to for style, humor and #girlboss inspiration. It's not only full of her brand, but also some great recipes, fashion tips and free downloads for your tech every month!

@thefatjewish: This should be your first stop on Instagram when you’re having a bad day or feeling annoyed. And watch out because the funny is contagious. With every post giving you that ‘me too’ feeling, expect to rope your friends into this party once you’ve sent them a couple of screenshots or tagged them in the comments.

@garypeppergirl: The perfect Saturday morning scroll. Nicole, an Australian fashion blogger (with a professional photographer fiancé), posts gorgeous shots of her travels, plus lots of great outfits and food pictures. If you don’t want to run your own company after looking at this account for five minutes, you might be dead. This highly motivational Instagram has a huge following of women who support and advise each other on how to make it to the top.

@cestmaria: When you need a burst of color or visual inspiration, you need to check out Maria Marie. She’s doing a great job of documenting the beauty of Mexico, and we know you’ll enjoy following along.

@lisacongdon: Not only does Lisa Congdon have a great story herself of how she became an artist, her visual story on Instagram is a pleasure to follow. With inspirational illustrations and colorful prints, you will find yourself smiling on the subway while you scroll.

@manrepeller: Man Repeller gives you the two things every girl really wants: humor and fashion. You’ll catch some of your favorite fashion celebs and some pretty comical videos too.

@travelnoire: As a couple of wanderlusts, we love seeing all these ladies traveling around the world.

@traceeellisross: Not only is she the daughter of Diana Ross, she's also glamorous, hilarious and down right fly. Check out her #TMurda videos where she attempts to rap along to the most ridiculous hip-hop songs of today.

@sanaakblog: A Super talented French illustrator and another fly girl who posts her amazing art on Instagram and makes me want to live her characters' lives!

Now get to 'grammin.
