Instagram: once a real glimpse into our everyday lives, now a heavily curated and contrived realm. Our feeds are constantly bombarded with meticulously thought out photos and copycats, overly saturated with unoriginal and unauthentic accounts… But let me tell you, there’s a group of bad ass girls out there who are making Instagram their own.
These Instagrammers in Toronto are leading the pack, and giving us something new and interesting to look at. Whether it be fashion or lifestyle, they’re putting Toronto on the map, not copying but creating and inspiring!
Here are the 10 female Instagrammers in Toronto you should follow:
The brains behind the full-service digital and experience agency, Kastor and Pollux, Dani Roche’s Instagram is like a pamphlet for a pop culture art gallery. Bright colours, eclectic style, and creative flatlays catch your eye. Not to mention, her style seems to morph from one day to the next – might also be the reason why she was recently featured on The Coveteur, no?
Being a social media strategist, digital content producer, multimedia storyteller and avid blogger, creating is in Christina Cheng’s blood. Her feed is a slick mood board of pictures that share an honest peek into her day-to-day projects. Urban-cool is one way to put it, with a focus on fashion, food, exercise, travel, and the trending shops and cafes in Toronto.
Co-founder and now contributing author to Kastor and Pollux, Bianca Venerayan comes from the same train of thought as Roche, but with more of a focus on style. Her looks are effortlessly cool and with a sense of unapologetic swag. Case in point: she’s not one to shy away from selfies and her bio has the self-proclaimed title of “Professional Instagram hoe. ” Yes, girl. You do you.
Jaclyn Genovese is a woman of many talents. Founder and creator of clothing shop Jacflash, her label has also grown into an events agency, and interior design firm. Naturally, her Instagram is a combination of all three, so if you like tomboy glam fashion, cool, modern spaces, and BTS snaps, we’d definitely recommend giving her a follow.
Fashion and beauty blogger, Sylvia Jade’s Instagram feed is an extension of her popular YouTube channel with all her latest looks, travels, eats, and random lifestyle advice/tips you didn’t know you needed. But it isn’t just fun and games – it’s a career! She’s got a degree in Business Management and a major in Marketing. Now her 47.2k followers make sense.
Take a glance at Mel Hwang’s profile and it’s one of those Instagram pages that just makes sense. Everything is branded right down to the colour scheme and filters – it’s visually pleasing and hard to stop scrolling. Her inspiring captions also give us the kick-start we need in our days. If you’re looking to keep up to date on Toronto retail happenings, Hwang’s account is a good one to follow as she reviews, attends, and posts news-type blasts on different sales and events around the city.
If you live in neutrals or are a sucker for a good latte then follow Qing’s Instagram account. The lifestyle blogger is a digital content creator and future pharmacist who enjoys exploring the city’s best cafes and restaurants. It’s a perfect blend of fashion and food that broadcasts the hottest and newest spots in Toronto, so take this as a warning, you’ll likely have a long list of coffee spots to try after browsing her page.
Jodi Blk lives life with a minimalist philosophy – her Instagram is an ode to crisp, simple outfits, and clean, bright spaces. You can guarantee that she’ll have the “it” black bag or moto jacket, paired with a timeless look that’s easy to replicate. But that’s why we love her style… It’s the type of fashion anyone can easily incorporate into their closets, a more attainable take on luxury that we can get down with.
What started as a passion project and space for Victoria’s love of fashion, food, beauty, travel and decor has now evolved into an awe-inspiring platform for digital content production. While her style is on point, it’s her well thought out flatlays and product pics that are the real hook. Her posts have layers… They’re beautiful and quite interesting to look at.
Deanne Wilder is the brains behind My Fash Avenue, your go-to for style and beauty tips, as well as DIYs. The girl knows her way around the digital realm being a brand ambassador for countless retailers like Ted Baker, Tommy Hilfiger and Toronto Eaton Centre, to name a few. When she’s not curating playful looks you might see her hosting twitter chats, like the one she did with Clarisonic that trended at #3 in Canada on Twitter.
