Well kids, we did it. 2013 has come to an end and 2014 has officially begun. In honor of the passing year, we decided to put together a list of our favorite Instagram accounts where we draw fashion and food inspiration every single day. After what seems like hours of tough decision-making, we chose 30 Instagram accounts that you should be following in 2014, both from a delicious and stylish standpoint. Check out these accounts and feast your eyes on the many beautiful, yummy, and inspirational photos from each our of Instagram crushes.
Like what you see? Simply click on the picture and it’ll link to their account. Follow, follow away.
@NutritionStripped is your stripped-down guide to an unprocessed lifestyle with no expiration date. Nashville nutritionist, Mckel Hill, shares her passion for all things nutrition, wellness, and whole foods recipes.
@Thugkitchen is where raw entertainment and healthy eating have come together in one joyful marriage. With a tough guy attitude, hilarious wit, and shameless swearing, this Instagram never fails to deliver.
@Cuppow takes the mason jar trend past smoothies and cocktails by turning their canning jars into travel mugs and lunch boxes. With scrumptious ideas and beautiful imagery, this Instagram account is worth a look.
@NowthisFood is made up of “bite-sized” Instagram videos with quick tips, recipes and even interviews. The amount of work they put into each post is impressive and certainly well-worth the watch.
@CherryBombeMag– It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Cherry Bombe Magazine and their Instagram account brings us on a stylish food journey in NYC and beyond.
@Food52– Elegant, delicate and beautiful, Food52 delivers amazing recipes and cooking methods every day. This Instagram is flawless when it comes to helping regular folks become better cooks one day at a time.
@TheNewPotato– Praised as the “It Girls of Food” by The Cut, this blog is much like The Coveteur but instead of being inspired by fashion, they’re inspired by one thing: food. Their Instagram is a cool look into their food-savvy lives.
@HonestlyYum– If you know and love Honestly WTF, you need to meet its tasty sister, Honestly Yum. This Instagram account boasts visually ridiculous food that’ll make you want to get your cook, baker and bartender on in no time.
@Joythebaker– Adorable and self-taught, Joy the Baker gives us a glimpse inside the world through pictures of tasty treats to die for, her family, and of course, the occasional cat photo.
@Bonappetitmag– From quick tips and tricks, to pictures of food that will make your mouth runneth over, Bon Appetit simply can’t be beat.
@ImmaculateInfat– If you live in NYC and have yet to discover the wonders of Immaculate Infatuation, prepare for a whole new world. Immaculate Infatuation is all about giving down to earth and honest reports on the many eats in NYC for the people from the people. Prepare to want to eat at every good spot the city has to offer– sooner or later you’ll find yourself hashtaging your food photos #eeeeeats.
@NYCfoodgals is made up of two NYC based roommates taking on the big apple, tasting and reporting their eats throughout the boroughs. It’s the perfect Instagram for inspiration when looking for a great place to grab a bite.
@eyeswoon– High on our list of girl crushes, Athena Calderone, founder of eyeswoon.com, has impeccable taste when it comes to design and knows how to put together a very pretty plate. Almost as pretty as she is. One look at her Instagram and you’ll say “life’s just not fair.” But as much as she is enviable, she’s also one of the sweetest women in the food and fashion game.
@Spoonforkbacon– An Instagram account created by a food stylist and a photographer. Need we say more? This is a visual journey through the lenses of two very talented ladies in the food industry.
@Reformation– Fast-growing retailer, Reformation, has a cult following of stylish NY and LA ladies who not only care to look hella good, but also have some eco-loving bones in their body. Their Instagram account is a sweet combination of cool, calm, and collected with a witty edge.
@Amy_Stone is Gap’s social media gal and boy can you tell why they hired her. Her account is as bluesy and aspirational as Gap’s and her aesthetic comes through in all of her beautifully edited pictures.
@GaryPepperGirl– There’s a very good chance you already follow this well-known fashion blogger but to leave her off this list would just be cruel. Actually, come to think of it, it might be more cruel to tell you about it. Nicole Warne is the color queen who is not only absolutely stunning, but gets paid by brands like Louis Vuitton to travel with her boyfriend and photographer, Luke Bolt. BEWARE: Instagram envy will happen.
@ToddSnyderNY– The cool kids on the menswear block, Todd Snyder is American classic with a comforting edge. A perfect Instagram account for the guy’s guy who likes fashion a tad (or should we say Todd) more than his buddies.
@AlbertaFerretti– A timeless designer and an Instagram account for the romantic, glamour babe. This account takes you backstage into the fashion world and even makes you want to attend a black tie event or 2.
@Weworewhat– NYC-based blogger, Danielle Bernstein, claims that overalls are her second skin and that is one of the many reasons we love her. Her account takes you into the life of a stylish 20something living in NYC and makes you want to purchase MANY of the outfits she wears.
@MisterMort is the non-conventional street style photographer and blogger based in New York, as well. If you like traditional style and trends, this account is not for you. Mister Mort gets down to the gritty in the city and loves shooting the real people on the streets– the people trendoids would see and say “what the hell are they wearing?”
@StyleLikeU– We love StyleLikeU for their raw interviews with people that break the barriers of style. Their voice is as powerful as their images, and for that reason alone we absolutely love following everything they do.
@ThomBrowneNY– Perhaps one of our favorite designers of our era, Thom Browne’s Instagram account takes us on a hauntingly-awesome roller coaster and makes us want to escape to a world where we can wear military-inspired outfits and ground-breaking silhouettes on an everyday basis.
@31PhillipLim– If we could dress in one designer’s clothes every day, it would be Phillip Lim’s. His account is a perfect mix of backstage, collections, and celebrities who wear his designs.
@TheHautePursuit– Vanessa Hong was clearly born to blog and rock neutrals and soft pastels. This blogger babe has a clean, fresh aesthetic and it’s one we can’t get enough of.
@Sophia_Amoruso– Are you an entrepreneur working in fashion? Well then you most likely already love and follow Nasty Gal’s “Chief Troublemaker.” Following her has us dreaming about living in LA and owning a multi-million dollar online startup. We can’t get enough of her hilarious and inspiring posts.
@PieraLuisa– One of our favorite Instagram accounts has to be Piera Gelardi, Refinery29’s Creative Director. This girl knows color and lifestyle better than anybody on the block and her Insta is certainly worth the follow.
@Lerapen– No Instagram list is complete without a stunning model to follow and Lera Pentelute’s is one we just absolutely love. Unlike some models, Lera’s captions are actually as incredible as her selfies and we can’t get enough of her.
@TastetheStyle– Well, well, well… Did you really think we’d leave ourselves off this list? OF COURSE NOT. So why should you follow us? Let’s just say we know what’s up when it comes to food, style, and other deliciousness in between.
@CyndiRamirez– Of course we’re biased about our founder, but hell, girl gives good photo. If you’re in the market to follow a Brooklyn resident on a quest to eat her way through the city in midst of fashion gigs and beyond, then look no further.
