Fashion Stylist and Writer Irene Feeney Steele offers-up her favourite fashion influencers well-worth a follow
Fashion is fleeting, but style remains forever. Those people who built their Instagram accounts from the get-go are still riding high in the industry and still influencing many. I’ve rounded up some of my all-time fave’s that I’ve followed for the longest time and still enjoy their content to this day. Allow yourself to be influenced.
Alexandra Pereira @alexandrapereira
Alexandra is one of the first fashion ‘bloggers’ which everyone was known as
back in 2013. I love her effortless style, grace and choice of outfits.
With 2.3 million followers, I consider her one of the OG’s of Instagram
who really elevated the fashion blogging scene back in the early days of the app.
I remember when she got engaged and her wedding, which was
beyond dreamy. She now lives in Dubai with her family so I’m secretly
hoping to bump into her one of these days!
Pascale Banks @pascale.banks
Another very stylish lady who’s effortless style I adore and covet. Even her
outfits whilst walking her cute little dog are so on point and I find myself
scouring the internet to track down her fab finds. Her hairstyle also influences
me, so much so – I usually show my hairdresser Pascale’s posts when I’m
looking for hair-blow style inspiration.
Saskia Wotton @saskiawotton
You may know Saskia from Netflix show – Byron Baes – a reality show which
featured a cast of Australian influencers living Byron Bay amongst a slew of
creativity and boho vibes. Her style is cool aesthetic with a luxurious
Australian, relaxed vibe. I adore Aussie fashion, I feel Australian fashionistas
are always on point. She is also the founder and director of @muma.world,
a fashion label consisting of sharp blazers, loose- fitting shirts, flowy pants plus
shorts and scarves in statement-making block colours and illustrated with native flora.
Erika Fox @retroflame
Another fabulous lady I’ve followed since around 2012 when I joined
Instagram. She’s an Irish girl living in New York with the most classic,
impeccable and timeless style. I personally met Erika a few years ago in
Dubai and she is as stylish in real life, as she is on Instagram. I adore following her
life in NYC on the gram. Her style is simple yet outstandingly sophisticated and
she just never gets it wrong.
Lovely Amusan @lovely_amusan
London and Dubai based Lovely is a must-follow. She just looks amazing in
everything and her editing skills and reels are flawless. Everything looks stunning
on her and her accessorizing is always spot on. I adore how she can easily transition
between London and Dubai style making it all look so effortless.

Her style is cool aesthetic with a luxurious Australian, relaxed vibe. I adore Aussie fashion, I feel Australian fashionistas are always on point and Saskia’s style is so me. She is also the founder and director of @muma.world, a fashion label consisting of sharp blazers, loose-fitting shirts, flowy pants plus shorts and scarves in statement-making block colours and illustrated with native flora. It’s all stunning and I need her entire wardrobe!
Olivia & Alice @oliviaandalice
Sisters Olivia and Alice from London make me want to wear all of the colour
all of the time and I’m here for that! I first started following them on Instagram
and completely gravitated to their quirky style and colour combo’s. I’m also
obsessed with how co-ordinated they are with each other all of the time – they
are a pleasure to watch.
Aimee Kelly @byaimeekelly
If there’s anyone I get huge creative inspiration from in terms of great use of
colour and reel ideas – it’s Aimee Kelly. Her reels are insanely good, are so
much fun and clever. She also showcases outfits to their best fashionable
potential and I love how adventurous she is.
Lucy Nicholls @lucy.nicholls_
I totally relate to Lucy’s fabulous style and her outfit choices. She showcases
trending yet classic styles in the most beautiful and creative way. I literally
want everything she wears and she looks insanely good in everything.
Debbie Le @thefashionablepan
I couldn’t compile this list without featuring Debbie. I adore her style and fun, honest personality
and can easily relate to it (as do her following of 89.1K followers). Everything she puts on looks so good on her. She influences me daily with her extremely stylish and well put-together outfits.
