Trends emerge at the speed of light these days, so to keep you up to date on what the fashion crowd is wearing and posting about, we’re launching a new series that highlights all the It pieces currently flooding our Instagram feeds. Each month, we’ll walk you through the items that have swiftly made the rounds on Instagram, earning them It status.
They say three’s a crowd, right? Well, in the world of fashion Instagram, three people are enough to constitute a veritable trend—er, micro-trend, if you want to get technical. When an item pops up on our feeds once, we double tap. When it shows up twice, we make a mental note of it. By the third, fourth, and fifth time we spot the same bag, shoe, or clothing item on the fashion insiders we love to follow, we take it upon ourselves to report on the emerging trend.
With that in mind, I’ve curated a selection of the top fashion trends on Instagram I’ve spotted already this August. In the below roundup, you’ll discover pieces like the square-toe shoes that fashion girls are losing their minds over and the Réalisation number that’s the stuff of summer dress dreams. Once you discover each of these items, you can basically call yourself an insider. Keep reading to discover the defining pieces of the month.
