Instagram has proven itself to be an invaluable tool in the oftentimes daunting process of simply, getting dressed. A relative cacophony of wardrobe choices from idealistic to realistic, there are no shortages of Instagram looks to the idle browser. With over two-million results in the #ootd (outfit of the day) tag, it’s no wonder there are so many influential figures to choose from when it comes to finding the right inspiration.
Scrolling through your morning Instagram feed before you’ve even gotten out of bed can give you a completely fresh perspective on your wardrobe and the outfits you already own. While you might not be able to rock a denim pencil skirt, or a simple white blouse with the very same casual air of relative indifference and elegance as the Instagram model you saw on the eighth post, the fun part about being able to aimlessly browse is that we can fantasise.
..and sometimes that means fantasising about the Instagram looks we might actually look good in!
It can be frustrating when Insta users don’t tag the outfits they’ve worn. So, we’ve assembled a list of some of our favourite Instagram looks from this week that make us long for the weekend, and how you can replicate them with your GlamCorner wardrobe!
Little white dresses seem to be the hit of the season this year and while the good old little black dress is a safe and reliable option, we’re happy for this change.
The little lace number posted by Instagram user @kimlianne features long sleeves, a mini-length hemline and delicate lace details. The look is simple and understated – painted nails, a simple wristwatch, a red lip and loose hair. It’s an easy look with chilled-out, weekend vibes that we adore!
Get this look with our Anais Lace Dress in White by Zimmermann! With fine lace details, a bodycon fit, full-length sleeves and a crew-neckline, this dress is unique and eye-catching – just what we love for our Instagram looks! Dress it up with some eye-catching accessories such as statement earrings or a necklace and matching clutch and heels. Or dress it down, pairing it with simple accessories and flats.
Green is a criminally under worn shade and Instagram user @yasminazhar absolutely rocks it in an effortlessly embellished, full-length sleeved, floor length dress. With the use of nude accessories, the look is kept understated and we can’t get enough of it.
Get this look with our whimsical emerald Whimbrel Gown by Tadashi Shoji. Featuring gorgeous beaded embellishments on the shoulder, this long sleeved, floor length gown has a demure v-neckline, wrap-over front and body con fit.
Style with a simple pair of nude heels and matching pod clutch, or glam it up with statement accessories and an up-do to bring attention to the beading on the shoulders!
Cooler months might be upon us now, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to abandon colour all together! Muted, more neutral shades remain a reliable and eye-catching choice for the cooler months. This look by Insta user @kimlianne is a perfect example of just how to effortlessly wear a bold and gorgeous colour all year-round!
Get inspired with our Roar of the Court Playsuit by Camilla. With the same casual, carefree vibes as @kimlianne’s look, this playsuit is perfect for the trans-seasonal time of year. The flirty, mini skirt hemline and edgy, cut-out sleeves make for an eye-catching ensemble that can easily be dressed up or down, as you see fit!
Dress it up with a simple black or nude clutch and matching heels, or down with a pair of flats and over-the-shoulder bag. Find a loose-fitting cardigan to throw over the top if it’s a cooler day or a plain-coloured scarf for an even more relaxed look, perfect for brunch out with the girls!
Red is an effortlessly and undeniably sexy colour, and we can’t get enough of @courtneytailor’s bodycon piece! Full-length sleeves make for an edgy look when paired with a mini hemline – easy and versatile for any occasion!
Get this look with our Cady Selena Slit Dress by Milly! In the same eye-catching shade of red, this dress features an off-shoulder neckline with flared sleeves, knee-length hemline and an edgy side-slit. Perfect for cocktail afternoons out with the girls!
Dress it up with some black heels, and a glitter clutch while wearing your hair down. Pair with some statement rings to bring attention to the flared sleeves, and a dark lip to compliment and contrast the rich shade of the dress itself
This jumpsuit by @alexandra_swain1 is a casual reminder of just how striking simplicity can be. Turning the little black dress trope on its head has never been easier with an outfit this edgy. Perfect to match the cooler months, and even more perfect for any weekend outing you have planned!
Steal this Instagram look with our Alice and Olivia Judee Racer Back Jumpsuit. With a simple crew neckline and flared hemline, this jumpsuit is absolutely perfect for a brunch out with the girls, or a coffee with someone special! The edgy racerback cut-outs along the back make for a unique feature to an already-inspired outfit waiting to be dressed up.
For a bit of pop, add some colours or a glitter clutch with simple pointed heels to polish off this inspired look. Alternatively, take a leaf right out of @alexandra_swain1’s book, and keep your accessories understated!
