Before the age of Instagram, pretty much all we had to inspire us were pictures of celebrities in magazines. (Can you even remember what that was like?) But it's 2018 now, and honing in on cool girls to follow is easier than ever—except for one thing. It's a little too easy to find fashion girls to inspire us all these days.
Your feed is probably so filled with OOTD posts and sneaker selfies that it can be hard to find the fresh style inspiration you're seeking. But here at Who What Wear, we're fully committed to helping you develop your own personal style on a daily basis. Part of that is introducing you to (or, reminding you of) creative fashion girls that you may not be as familiar with as, say, Chiara Ferragni.
Included among the nine need-to-know fashion girls we're currently quite enamored with are a breakout actress, a French model, a 64-year-old blogger, and a few street style stars that you may have spotted on our very own Instagram feed. Ahead, you'll see exactly why these women are included in this list (via Instagram posts, naturally).
To say that Yara Shahidi has an impressive résumé for a 17-year-old is an understatement. The actress and activist is one of the stars of Blackish and its spinoff series Grown-ish, and advocates diversity in Hollywood and education for girls. Not only that, but she has a spot at Harvard waiting for her. We love her original, bold aesthetic.
Stylist Rachael Wang is a street style photographer favorite, and with good reason. She's a pro at taking tricky trends and styling them to be completely wearable IRL. Not only that, she stands up for what she believes in, often wearing pieces that convey an important message.
Adwoa Aboah has long been a top model in the eyes of the fashion industry, but her recent British Vogue cover under new EIC Edward Enninful undoubtedly shot her straight to supermodel stardom. She also founded Gurls Talk, described as "a safe space for girls to share and listen without any judgment or stigma." How's that for inspirational?
Alessandra Garcia Lorido
Los Angeles–based Alessandra Garcia Lorido, 26, is the daughter of actor Andy Garcia, but she's made a name for herself as a size-12 model, with work for cool-girl brands like Reformation under her belt. She's a body positivity advocate, and as you'll see from her Instagram, has an infectious energy and easy, playful approach to style.
