7 Hilarious Fashion Instagrams to Follow

Hilarious FASHION ACCOUNTS TO FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM

We’re all about combining practicality with good looking fashion.

However, sometimes when fashion struts its stuff, the runways are dominated by the bizarre and unwieldy rather than the beautiful or practical. And we aren’t the only people to have noticed this, not by a long shot.

After discovering these we thought it only right that we share some of the most hilarious fashion accounts on Instagram.

We save the best till last…

1. DIET PRADA

This instagram calls out designers for knocking each other off, as well as sharing ‘who wore it better?’ images.

If you’re going to copy someone, maybe copy something less… well memorably strange. Diet Prada points out the somewhat striking resemblance between these two seasonal releases, 23 years apart.

FOLLOW @DIETPRADA

2. FREDDIE MADE

Designed to make you smile, this account by conceptual artist Freddie Smithson takes iconic shots and highlights the ridiculousness of them with some… let’s say curious, Photoshop.

We all know the Queen has some pretty great fashion sense, but this one may be new to us.

3. TOMMY LENK

The actor and comedian Tommy Lenk recreates, in DIY style, and tries on different outfits worn by models and celebrities.
We will let you be the judge of just how successful he is in pulling them off.

Believe it or not you can make this stylish outfit yourself with nothing but some bin bags and red cups.

4. ANGELICA HICKs

Her ‘who wore it best?’ segment is original and it certainly tickles us, but it is her humorous illustrations that we love most of all.

It kinda works both ways…

FOLLOW @ANGELICAHICKS

5. COPY LAB

Chris Rellas takes his satirical fashion viewpoint with photoshop as his witty weapon. the results are surprising and pretty interesting.

Have you ever thought about what Renaissance paintings would look like with flashes of Chanel and Gucci? Chris has.

Sometimes all an old outfit needs to update it, is a new accessory.

FOLLOW @COPYLAB

6. SIDUATIONS

This account cleverly creates funny fashion memes, a lot of them you have likely seen doing the rounds on your social media feeds.

For the first time it would seem they put some practical clothes on the runway. This would keep our beekeepers safe.

FOLLOW @SIDUATIONS

7. TASTE OF STREEP

The final one on the list is definitely our favourite.

We love Meryl Streep, and we love food. So, what could be better than an Instagram account that photoshops her seamlessly onto your favourite food?

An Egg-cellent picture here…

It’s not Prada, but it certainly is a tasty look.

What to Wear with your HBB

What to Wear
with your HBB

Choose the Perfect Outfit to Match your HBB

To get the most out of your outfit, your accessories are vitally important. It’s all very well wearing a gorgeous new dress, or form fitted tailored suit, but accessories can make or break an outfit. . A tired looking bag, scuffed pair of shoes or overly colourful belt will distract and not in a good way.

Traditionally you would simply match your bag with your shoes but that isn’t necessarily the right way to go. It is, in fact, a little old hat.

WHEN IT COMES TO MATCHING YOUR BAG WITH YOUR OUTFIT, EVERYTHING HAS TO DO WITH BALANCE.

Too much matching normally isn’t flattering, you end up looking like a sort of walking crayon. What you want to do is create a balance of colour, neutrals and prints so that your outfit never ends up looking boring.

For example, If your outfit is busy with a complicated print or lots and lots of colour, then your accessories should be more toned down. You should consider matching the colour pallette of your accessories to help tie outfit together. They should be calmer in colour so as not to confuse the eye. Think a nice navy leather HBB for example, matched with a pair of black shoes perhaps.

However, since workwear normally means a lot of neutral colours anyway, with blacks and dark blues dominating the office blocks, you can quite easily get away with some mismatched accessories which will stand out and help give your outfit personality.

Simple and Sophisticated or Bold Colour?

By combining simple neutrals or light and dark you can create smart and savvy combinations, perfect for the office.

Don’t be afraid to combine colourful prints with an equally colourful mono-colour bag.

On the left the Expedition Burgundy pops from an outfit of neutrals. On the right of the image the outfit and bag (Textured Nylon Lagoon) are all taken from the same pallette with the neutral gloves adding a bit of flair.

Alternatively you could do something like the second image with the same bag. The accessories are from a matching pallette and then set of against the bright yellow of the shirt which makes for a playful, quirky outfit.

The Textured Nylon Cranberry sets off the outfit of pastels as an eye-drawing snap of colour.

With a busy print like our Zebra Print HBB, block colours and neutrals work best. This is then matched with shoes to create a smart and interesting outfit.

The pale blue of the detail of this Mosaic Blue HBB reversible matches neatly with the outfit, whilst the deeper almost oceanic blue adds a depth.
