The 7 Irish ladies I’m following on Instagram for style inspiration

by Edaein OConnell
15th Mar 2020

Irish women are some of the most stylish in the world. Here are seven we are following on Instagram for style inspiration

Sometimes we forget about the stylish ladies who hail from this small island.

As a nation, our fashion credentials are often overlooked – but Irish women are some of the most stylish in the world. We know exactly how to dress whatever the weather, and while this may sound like common sense, we can do that and still look stylish (which is no easy feat).

While partaking in my nightly exploration through Instagram I find myself coming back to these seven accounts. Each one belongs to a stylish Irish female and my saved folders are full of their stylish vision. From classic style to more edgy looks, each is as individual and chic as the other.

Start hitting those follow buttons now.
