Who needs paparazzi photos when you have access to Instagram? Celebs are capturing their best looks (at their best angles) for all of us to see & admire. The It Girls of Instagram are no exception. Think Kendall Jenner, Gigi, Bella Hadid, and Selena Gomez, just to name a few.
These young women are the style icons for people everywhere, and why not?
If you think about it, they set a pretty good example to young girls everywhere. They’re never been pictured stumbling out of a club, rarely get into any internet ‘beef,’ and despite some of their not so humble beginnings, they all have excellent work ethic. Not to mention they’re always impeccably dressed – no doubt thanks to their literal teams of stylists.
Whoever dresses them and whatever they wear, these girls always look great. They know the accessory every diva needs: an amazing pair of shades.
Whether it be retro round frames in a throwback to the 60s or 70s, or the tiny coloured lenses of the 90s, there’s a vintage or modern trend for everyone across these Instagram accounts.
Kendall is never one to shy away from daring and outlandish outfits, just think about the amazing Swarovski encrusted dress she wore to her 21st birthday.
But sometimes, it’s refreshing to see a celebrity in a subtle, stripped back look.
Jenner’s simple black trousers, crisp white shirt and powder pink jacket was complimented by her classic wayfarer shades. A style that suits all faces and any occasion, and for this reason are an accessory staple in any fashionista’s wardrobe.

The #1 most followed on Instagram, starlet Selena Gomez is having a style transformation as of late. She shed her Disney girl image long ago, and has transformed into a true style icon for many.
Here, she is rocking perhaps the most 90s hip-hop sunglasses ever invented. Looking like she’s about to shoot an RnB CD cover – and we love it.
Selena’s tinted lenses are a throwback to past trends which happen to have come back into style with tinted eyewear being shown frequently across many catwalks of the recent Fashion Weeks.
You can emulate Selena’s look with tinted shades and an oversized denim jacket – just remember, don’t wear them! The sunglasses must be artfully perched on your nose, and the jacket ever so casually slung around your shoulders ready for your photo op.
Zoey Kravitz, daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet, but so so much more in her own right.
Zoey credits actor, singer, model and serious fashionista to her long resume, most recently with a starring role in American TV drama ‘Big Little Lies.’ She has recently been spotted front row of some of the biggest shows across fashion weeks, and isn’t one to be shy when it comes to her own personal style: a mix between grungy skater, hippy, high fashion, and all the best things.
Here she accessorised her simple look with a pair of round, metal framed mirror shades, perfect for laid back and effortless cool-girl aesthetic.
Emma Roberts is the queen of subtle elegance. It must be in the her blood, surely you can’t be the niece of Julia Roberts and not be amazing?
Despite often changing her look, in particular her hair colour, Emma remains effortlessly stylish. This candid shot shows off her slightly rounded tortoiseshell frames to perfection, the perfect summer shape to throw on with any outfit.
Michael Kors, £98.98
Bella Hadid pushes the style boundaries in this seriously fashion forward look. Combining current trends of fishnet, athleisure, and grunge glamour to create a truly unique outfit.
We can’t think of anyone else who would have the guts or the ability to pull off a look like this. The key to Bella’s edgy look are the severely square sunglasses.
Whether you’re shielding yourself from the paparazzi glare (unlikely) or just want to try something new, this futuristic style is for you.
After celebrating the launch of her sister Bella’s collaboration with streetwear brand Chrome Hearts, Gigi kicked back and styled some seriously retro cool shades.
Gigi’s 70s style frames are perfect for everyday weather, when it’s not quite sunny but the clouds are still bright. Not to mention, we bet it’s hard to have a bad day when you’re literally seeing the world through rose tinted glasses!
William Morris London, £145.73
