Here to make your Instagram feed that little bit more stylish.
It’s a blessing and a curse, having a constant stream of beautiful outfits to scroll through while you wait for your coffee. Sure, they’re great pics, but before you know if you’ve tapped through to five different web stores and spent your weekend going-out budget on clothes and shoes.
If a problem shared is a problem halved, though, we’re just trying to lighten the load here. We’ve rounded up 10 fashionistas from around these parts who you should be following. Some you’ll have seen before (you’ve got to respect the classics) and some are newer faces – either way, they know their way around an outfit.
Radwa El Ziki is based between Cairo, Dubai and Kuwait, and she looks pretty stunning wherever she goes. El Ziki is one of those rare people who can wear pom poms without looking too whimsical, and clashing prints without looking over the top. She’s also just as comfortable in jeans, and her account is a master class in elevating the every day.
Jacobs has a partnership with Marc Jacobs Beauty (no relation, we’re assuming) and her feed is just as inspiring from a makeup point of view as a style one. The local beauty dresses with a sense of fun and drama, always setting it off with some perfect eye makeup.
Anyone who puts sneakers with a dress this pretty has our attention. We love this gal’s outfits because they’re always refined but laid back – she’s never underdressed, but you get the sense she’s comfortable in just about any situation.
Because we could all do with a spot of Dior in our lives. Wazen is one of the big names of our local style scene, and you can see why. The woman’s looks are inspired. She’s the coolest girl at the party – spend a few minutes on her feed and you’ll kind of want to be her friend.
This Kuwait-based Instagrammer is so cool we’re half expecting to see her in a Rihanna video. Think of her as a local Jordyn Woods, but via a couple of years at art school. If you don’t really ‘get’ Vetements, this is who you want to explain it.
If you’ve just come back from holiday, avoid this account. Hasan will make you want to pack your bags again so badly it’ll be a physical ache. If you’re in a less delicate state, though, and just want some relaxed, glamorous looks to copy, dive right in.
If you’re looking to work more colour into your wardrobe, run don’t walk. Goodson is a champion of coordinating tones. She’s also pretty much in charge of denim, which we’ll always be in favour of.
Go straight to the top of the class (at Fenty University). Barret’s ultra hip street style is what we’re often trying for, and rarely achieving, on the weekends.
Based in Abu Dhabi, this blogger knows the importance of a good blowout. She’s got the art of layering down, and also knows when to keep it simple. Her outfits never feel overcooked, and that’s why we love her.

No, we’re not quite over this outfit from Fashion Forward yet. But we think you can see why – that hair, those sunnies, and the soft pink. It’s a stunning combo, and you’ll find plenty more like it over on Mohamud’s feed.
