I can't really explain it, but the average New York resident seems to be disproportionately more stylish than the residents of any other city across the country. Credit the fashion industry's strong presence or the opportunity for great street style at every turn, but the city is teeming with inspirational style. Short of hopping on the next flight to the East Coast destination to witness for yourself, getting your fill of NYC style is as easy as following some of its best-dressed citizens on Instagram.

Since there's a good chance that we all follow the same few fashion bloggers on the platform already, we're branching out and highlighting an inspirational group of women from across the fashion, music, and art worlds. From fine artists and DJs to editors and stylists, each of the following women has a unique approach to personal style that we love to follow and know you will, too.

Scroll down to discover nine women with the best non-blogger NYC style and get ready to hit follow.

As the designer behind It brand Orseund Iris, Alana naturally fills her personal feed with the brand's latest pieces, but her own style balances her brand's romance with a more grunge-inflected downtown vibe.

You might recognize Imani as one of Glossier's darlings, but she's just as much a fashion girl as she is a beauty girl. She'll be the first one on your feed to try out new and out-there trends, so make her your go-to for cool, cutting-edge style inspiration.

Refinery29's creative director is a self-described goth, and her commitment to an all-black aesthetic is admirable. In a sea of maximalists and rainbow colors, Lydia's outfits lend a dose of pared-back style you didn't know you were craving.
