While there are many reasons why we love Instagram, outfit inspiration has got to be up at the top of our list. Sure, it’s (kinda) fun to see pictures of your friend’s avocado toast at brunch, or your sister’s travels through Europe… but it’s distinctly more fun to hunt down outfits to replicate, adding them to your “saved” page for those days when you’re just not in touch with your inner sartorial genius. Better yet, Instagram’s shopping feature now makes it extremely (read:dangerously) easy to buy the outfit right then and there, avoiding that annoying 200+ tabs open situation that so often happens whilst online shopping.
But whether you want to shop or simply browse, we’ve just discovered one account you need to follow ASAP— especially if you have a thing for vintage. Introducing: @couryard_la. Based in L.A. (makes sense), this vintage/contemporary hybrid shop not only stocks some of the best finds we’ve seen to-date, but also has vintage styling down to a fine art.
Never thought green utility pants could be chic? Think again. About to give away your old studded belt? Don’t. Think you need to wear a nice shirt under a blazer? Wrong. This Instagram guided us in all these questions, and more, showing us the very best ways to style vintage pieces. And never fear, none of the outfits are too extreme to inaccessible. In fact, we’re willing to bet there’s at least one look on the page you’d be able to copy with pieces you already own. To see some of the looks we’re replicating from @courtyard_la, keep scrolling. And if you’re super-vibing with it why not shop some of the shop’s best pieces below?
