Fashion magazines are still our best pick for style inspirations, but hey, not everyone has a team of stylists and make-up artists! Instead, here are 10 stylish folks we’ve spotted on Instagram.
Who: Sarr-Jamois (@sarrjamois), a half-Senegalese and half-French fashion editor at i-D

Style: Casual, with a touch of vintage and pop culture
