Trends emerge at the speed of light these days, so to keep you up to date on what the fashion crowd is wearing and posting about, we're launching a new series that highlights all the It pieces currently flooding our Instagram feeds. Each month, we'll walk you through the items that have swiftly made the rounds on Instagram, earning them It status.

They say three's a crowd, right? Well, in the world of fashion Instagram, three people are enough to constitute a veritable trend—er, micro-trend, if you want to get technical. When an item pops up on our feeds once, we double-tap. When it shows up twice, we make a mental note of it. And by the third, fourth, and fifth time we spot the same bag, shoe, or clothing item on the fashion insiders we love to follow, we take it upon ourselves to report on the emerging trend.

With that in mind, I've curated a selection of the top fashion trends on Instagram I've spotted already this month—and we're only halfway through April. From the newest Chanel It shoes everyone's clamoring to get their hands on to the coolest top that nails the tie-dye trend, once you discover each of these five items, you can basically call yourself an insider. Keep reading to discover the defining pieces of the month and shop similar styles, too.

Chanel PVC Mules

New season, new Chanel It piece. While PVC shoes blew up on the scene last summer, this new (and very wearable) take on the shoe trend is a clear sign (pardon the pun) that it's going to be just as popular this summer, too. Fashion girls are already adding them to their vacation wardrobes, as exhibited in the below beachside 'grams.

Rejina Pyo Mila Crinkled-Satin Shirt

"Tourist dad" is shaping up to be a big aesthetic for spring and summer, and quite honestly, we're here for it if it looks like Rejina Pyo's vacation-ready button-down shirt. Offered in refreshing shades like tangerine, lime, and blush, just add some denim cutoffs, sporty sandals, and a bucket hat to complete the look.

Burberry Mary-Janes

Mary Janes are gunning for a comeback for spring, and it's 90% due to a certain patent leather pair from Burberry that all the cool fashion girls are styling on their Instagram feeds.

ASAI Patchwork Tie-Dye Turtleneck

This emerging designer from London is quickly making a name for themselves thanks to their tie-dye turtleneck. With '90s-style lettuce trim and patchwork design, the top is a fresh take on the tie-dye trend that's everywhere at the moment. Fashion insiders are wearing it tucked into jeans and layered underneath slip dresses.

Ganni's Tie-Dye Denim

I know what you're thinking. Even more tie-dye? Really?! Yes, really. When it's Ganni's celebrity-approved updates to your average Canadian tuxedo, it's worth highlighting. The pieces are earning fans from Kylie Jenner to Gigi Hadid who just wore one of the colorful denim vests to Coachella.
