During last weekend’s Memorial Day lull, you may have found yourself swiping through your Instagram feed (which no doubt includes @balharbourshops) a little more often than usual. We know we did! Lest anyone doubt, there’s no better place for an instant fashion fix (and a little bit of envy) than on the feeds of the most stylish image-makers, from Montauk to Tokyo.

We gathered 10 of our favorite (this week, anyway) feeds to follow. Gear up your thumbs for ‘double tapping’ and your closets for new items, because these accounts are sure to season your summer wardrobe and feed your fashion fix.

Diane von Furstenberg has piles and piles of personality—much of it captured here. The iconic designer fills her feed snaps of her daily life (so much more exotic than ours!), giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the designer’s life. Whether it's a selfie before the Vanity Fair party, a snap of her new designs or behind the scenes at a DVF photo shoot, Diane’s account is full of wonderful wit and fashionable animation.

Her Met Gala posts are reason enough to follow. Stella dresses some of the most stylish women in the world #ReeseWitherspoon, #KateBosworth and #Rihanna. #Stellasworld is more than inspiring, and her closest friends that frequently appear in her #galsnightout posts also happen to be some of the biggest trendsetters in the world including Gwen Stefani, Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Ricci.

If you don’t believe that Instagram is a powerful platform for fashion, think again. The CFDA has added a “Fashion Instagrammer of the Year” to its Awards categories this year. Of the eight nominations, we love Pari Ehsan’s account that blends the worlds of fashion and art. Her account is filled with her keen eye for style that is inspired by the art and architecture of her world.

No fashion-following list is complete without fashion’s it-girl Cara Delevingne. The model posts amusing and always-stylish snaps at some of the most exclusive events in the world. Her spontaneous and playful posts makes this otherworldly figure somehow down-to-earth—not to mention totally addictive.

A combination of high-fashion elite and girl-next-door, Oscar de la Renta’s senior vice president of global communications, Erika Bearman, takes you behind the scenes of the iconic fashion house. Our very own Bal Harbour Magazine Style Setter is often pictured wearing the latest from the line, so if you see it on Bearman, you know you have a winning wardrobe addition.

Just because you are working on getting a summer beach-body doesn’t mean you can’t sweat in style. Iza Goulart, international, Brazilian, Victoria’s Secret, Sports Illustrated and high-fashion runway model is a must-follow. The fitness fanatic has training-chic down to a tee, so follow fiercely and you may pick up a move or two that will help you own that midriff you’ve been eyeing.

For fans of #ootd (outfit of the day for the uninitiated), we wanted to call your attention to Tory Burch, who, instead of engaging in selfie mania, artfully lays out her looks for us admire. And if we’re lucky, replicate. She’s the perfect figure to follow for an all-American summer, so keep an eye on this one.

For the celebrity-obsessed—or maybe just curious—Dolce and Gabbana is the feed to follow. The brand is a favorite among Hollywood elite, and the designers make sure to capture and share lots and lots of A-listers in their threads.

Marc Jacobs is arguably the most colorful Instagram account for summer style inspiration. We love the in-situ approach to his collection snaps. Skip the runway and show us that eyelet dress on a young girl tumbling down the dunes. Thanks, Marc, we’ll take one of each!
