The Instagram app is perfectly suited for capturing style in the world around us. Fashion bloggers in New York City inspire thousands, or even millions, of followers by showing their audiences their unique style through the popular social media app. Aspiring fashionistas can look to these trendsetters’ Instagram pages to gain ideas for their own style.  Here are the top five New York City-based fashionable Instagrams to follow — including a few NYU students — to gain fashion inspiration.

@runawayinla – Kelsey Nguyen

LS sophomore Kelsey Nguyen started her blog “Runway in LA” in 2009 and since then has grown a loyal following to her bicoastal-inspired style. A Los Angeles native, Nguyen incorporates touches of Californian bohemian style to her New York City-inspired looks. Follow her page for daily shots of colorful architecture from her many travels, tons of yummy food and chic outfits of the day.

@iamgalla – Adam Gallagher

Adam Gallagher is a fashion blogger dedicated to his predominantly male demographic. Gallagher uses his blog, I AM GALLA, to give tips on men’s fashion and as a platform for male street style from around the world. His style combines that of California and New York, which makes for an Instagram feed that is full of palm trees, skyscrapers and impeccable menswear.

@cremedelachic – Kelly Han

Another bicoastal blogger, Gallatin sophomore Kelly Han’s style is feminine and colorful.
