Narrowing down the Instagram accounts that have changed our perspective on style is one of the most difficult tasks we’ve been asked to do. More and more, it feels like bloggers and influencers are inspiring our outfit choices every day. That said, it's easy to scroll endlessly for inspiration and come up short of what you're really looking for—be it style ideas or pieces to purchase. That's why we've scoured the internet far and wide to round up a list of our favorite fashion influencers, who stand out from the online pack thanks to their impeccable style sense, creativity, and individuality. For the best fashion advice out there, allow yourself to be influenced by the outfit posts of these style trendsetters.
Plus-size fashion and beauty blogger Tanesha Awasthi shares her fabulous outfit inspirations, style advice, and makeup tutorials.

With a modern, sophisticated and ladylike style sensibility that blends Audrey Hepburn and Olivia Palermo (with a bit of occasional edge), Tanesha builds many of her looks starting with her favorite closet staples, a great pair of dark wash jeans, a tailored blazer, and classic pointy toe pump.
