Oh, 2015. You were a grand year indeed. You light up our life with Drake memes and filled up our hearts with videos like the Pizza Rat and the Left Shark. And while all of that might have broke the internet, we are going to break your Insta-feed with our annual Instagram round up.
Each year we bring you 30 accounts that will easily blow up your feed in all the right ways. Whether it has to do with beauty, food, fashion or art, each account is going to feed your Instagram soul with plenty of visual eye candy that you might pass out from so much… imagery. Hey, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it.
If you don’t already know, VILLOID is the child of Alexa Chung and her lovely team. It’s basically like if Pinterest and Instagram had a magical style baby. The app (which you can download for iPad and iPhone), allows you to create visual boards and outfits. You can follow your favorite peeps and brands AND every image you save or like, will have the option of allowing you to buy that specific item. Shopping for the kindred spirit? Yup, we think so!
Tory’s Instagram is going to make your head explode with plenty of color and art direction. This NYC-based photographer is not shy when it comes to color and literally takes GIFs to a whole new level. If you don’t believe us, you need to check out her feed now.
Every year on this list we feature at least one fashion brand who is killing the Instagram game, and this year ALC LTD brought their A game. So, why follow them? Their feed is a cool hybrid of retro photography, swoony lookbook shots, and inspirational quotes that don’t bring the cheese factor. It’s a fashion moodboard if we’ve ever seen one, and we’re into it.
This fashion blogger/globe-trotter/model is going to give you major wanderlust. Each squared pic is filled with her travels, style, and images that inspire her. While you might get all the feels just by scrolling through her images, you will also get some major style envy, too.
Shelby is not shy when it comes to pastely, bright images. Each of her grams are filled with so much imagination that you almost wish you thought of it yourself.
It’s always so easy to swoon over an Instagram account when the feed is filled with yummy images of food. While Alexandra photographs other bits of New York and of her friends, her food images are what we are seriously drooling over.
You’re probably familiar with this little joint, and if you are not, where have you been? By CHLOE. is probably the best vegan spot we have ever eaten at. EVER. And thankfully, their Instagram account is just as amazing. Its color coded with images of bejeweled bananas and dogs in buns. How can you argue with that?
Beyond The Mag takes a fresh take on what an online magazine should be. The feed is filled with inspirational images that will make your eyes water with so much happiness. This might be the future of magazines, guys. We’re just saying.
If you want to know the latest and greatest in the Insta-verse, then feast your eyes on The New Stand. They curate their feed to satisfy your inner artist with their favorite images from their favorite artists. It’s essentially being at an art gallery without leaving your chair. #lazygirlproblems. PS: What makes The New Stand even cooler is that they’re actually a boutique shop located inside the subways of Union Square and Brookfield Place. Plus their app makes for one awesome news aggregator. Don’t sleep on this business.
If you are a punny girl (ha, see what we did there?), then you are going to LOVE this account. Talking Food is dedicated to bringing food and words together in a harmonious environment. With phrases like the one above, you will be clicking to the account over and over again.
Sometimes an Instagram feed just needs to be simple and beautiful, and that is where Nastia.jpg comes in. Each image is encompasses strong bold colors that is overlaid with a bit of film grain. Analog images never looked so good.
You might recognize Carly because we originally featured her as a Boss Babe not too long ago. So it only makes sense to feature her feed because it’s just that damn good. She explores each image with self portraits and amazing body shots that makes each image breathe and come to life.
Que is a magician when it comes to his camera. While each photo is pretty simplistic when it comes to its character, the negative space is usually filled with dominant objects that easily complete them. We are pretty sure this guy is going to blow up soon, so check out his feed before we say, “we told you so.”
This creative lab from LA and NY has a curated feed that is filled with mixes of what they are working on and what they love from the internet. It’s completely eye-catching and totally addicting. Try not to scroll for hours and hours — We dare you.
Let’s just say this account is as unique as it comes. Each image portrays whatever the hand is holding. Pretty simple, right? From seashells on the beach or a plate full of nachos, if you can hold it, it is probably going to be in this feed.
When a model turns photographer has an Instagram account that is filled with amazing portraits, you pay attention. Hattie isn’t shy when it comes to standing in front of the camera, but she is pretty killer when it comes to being behind it as well.
The cool thing about Aleia’s feed is that she loves to play with reflections. A lot of her images are quirky and fun, while still being pretty genuine. Less is more with her work, and we kind of like it like that.
If you need a quick pick-me-up, then scroll through Rosie’s Instagram. It’s no wonder she has 31k followers. Every image is bright and colorful, just like her personality. If there is a world that we would love to be stuck in, it would be hers.
It’s hard not to fall in love with Olivia’s life. It seems she has the greatest and latest in fashion, she always goes to the coolest places, and she seems to travel all over the world. Olivia, if you need a travel buddy, we are more than happy to go with you. Just sayin…
Oh, Jimmy. You are a photographer’s dream come true. No matter how big or small, the composition of each image is perfect and somehow always illustrates the perfect image. Tell us your secrets, Jimmy. We promise we won’t tell anyone.
The one great thing about Instagram is how easily you can create a story to go along with your image. And Keen does just that. Not only are her images spectacular, but the way she writes is out of this world. She connects with her readers like no one else due to her highly emotional stories and highly visual images. If there is one thing Keen does well, it’s making you fall in love with New York over and over again.
Sasha’s page is a complete acid trip. It’s filled with bright colors, dead fish smoking, and a too long of a list with way more obscured shit. So, basically, yes, you need to see his images.
2015 was the year of the Drake and we think we is going to spill over into 2016. Drake On Cake needs to be your next go-to for a what-the-f*ck-happened-here Instagram feed. Each cake is decorated with Drake’s lyrics. Seriously, do we need to say more?
Eye candy is an understatement when it comes to Jessica’s work. She illustrates sayings in fun, quirky ways and she highly colored compositions that are too fun to not repost for yourself. Love it or hate it, Jessica is not afraid to let her freak fly and that is why we love her.
There is something so sweet and simple when it comes to Reema’s images. While lots of cooler tones encompass her page, you would never guess her whole feed is completely made with her handy, dandy iPhone. After taking one look at Reema’s feed, it will be very hard for you to not hit that follow button. Trust us.
Big Bud Press is the only pin company you will ever need. Even though their pins are already fun and bright with a shit ton of personality, their Instagram feed is, too. We recommend scrolling through and shopping ’til you have no more money in your pocket… but that’s just us.
While we are pretty huge dogs lovers over at TTS, we could’t help but fall in love with Princess Cheeto. Cheeto is always photographed in the most obscured way. Whether she has a pink wig on, or she is wrapped as a sushi roll, you can’t help but feel that this cat might actually be the coolest feline out there.
Tony images are simply twisted. His Instagram feed takes a plunge into his imagination and we are completely drowning in it. He somehow imagines pop culture in a very artistic way and blows everything else out of the water. How he comes up with half of this stuff, we simply do not know, but we are loving it.
Oyster Magazine’s account is everything you could want for a fashion and beauty-obssesed individual. Scroll through and you will find images of photo shoots, clothing, and just a good amount of good-looking people.
Last but not least, we have an illustration account that is as hood as it gets. Some Hoodlum twists the way we see pop culture with its literal meanings and simple designs. Everything from DJ Kaled to Barack Obama is showcased in his feed in the most ridiculous way possible — in a good way, of course.
