When it comes to getting daily inspiration from all things fashion, I cannot be satisfied with simply flipping through magazines and following fashion blogs alone. Fashion is, after all, an art form. That is one of the many reasons I love to follow fabulous fashion illustration accounts on Instagram for a daily dose of magic.
One of the wonderful things about style is how it inspires us all in so many different ways. For many, the worlds of art and fashion go completely hand-in-hand. Coco Chanel said it best when she mused, "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the
sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what
is happening." Chances are that if you're into clothes, you appreciate the power and influence they can hold in the world of art.
Some of us take fashion inspo straight to our closets, playfully putting together outfits and letting our creativity soar. Others cruise through blogs or magazines, flipping through page after page of editorials and imagining ourselves decked out in the beautiful clothing we see printed on the pages.
But then there are the ones who become inspired by style and express it artistically with the mighty pen, creating absolutely fabulous illustrations that get the imagination soaring. The results can be downright magical, so let's take a look at 27 absolutely fabulous fashion illustration accounts to follow on Instagram.
