My cousin once said to me change who your following in order to inspire what you want to be. I noticed that a lot of the influencers I was following were typically white, skinny and posted about things that were not relevant to me. This isn't to say that I still don't follow some of these influencers and celebs but that I simply unfollowed some who I didn't feel matched my style or inspired me anymore. I saw such a disparity in the amount of WOC influencers it was crazy which is one of the reasons I started this blog. But I wanted to provide some amazing influencers/ celebs that I follow who are always posting amazing and inspiring content. Some of these are celebs I look up to/ admire or just influencers who I think are doing great!
@itsdemib is a Purdue engineer graduate based in Chicago who's entire feed is what I aspire to be. She's partnered with brands such as Lulu's and Mejuri and honestly she's funny with great style and I wish I was her.
Tomi is the blogger and instagram influencer behind @goodtomicha. I love her colorful feed and she her blog posts are always honest and authentic. From her gorgeous wedding photos to genuine posts about her hair I love everything she stands for and is truly inspiring.
Christi Rose is a college student at Florida International University and is a proud member of Alpha Chi Omega there. Being a fellow WOC in a majority white sorority I love supporting her and her feed is so bright and fun. She also makes some really cool edits of her photos you guys should definitely check out @_christi99.
@dez_smith is a blogger who bases her content on style, life, and authenticity. She is supper honest about her hair journey and has a bold and eye catching sense of style. I love her feed because she is based in NJ and has a lot of cool city photos.
These are just 4 of my favorite WOC influencers on instagram. All of them have both luxury and affordable items that you can incorporate into your own wardrobe and are always inspiring me with their posts. They also all have a unique style and are always posting new and unique content. I love instagram but sometimes its easy to get sucked into the instagram influencer world and finding ones that truly inspire and post amazing content. So here are a few that I love that are always authentic and real and inspire me and my style choices.
Heres is a link to my post about diversifying your feed as well!!
