We spend a lot of time on Instagram. There, we said it! It’s unclear how many minutes (er, hours) per day, but it’s quite substantial. And for good reason. We not only use the ‘gram to keep up with our favorite it girls and brands but also as a trove of inspiration to inform our actual purchases. Sure, runways and street style will always inspire our shopping habits, but when we spot something bubbling up on Instagram, it prompts us that much more to jump on that particular trend. Because, come on, if top influencers are repeatedly wearing a specific trend, then it’s bound to become a “thing.” What’s hot in the Insta world right now? Keep scrolling to check out the five looks Instagram is basically making famous. You’ll look like a bona fide influencer MVP in no time.

Pops of Yellow

While a slew of hues (including pink and green!) are running rampant this fall, it looks like a pop of yellow is the simplest way to bring your outfit to the next level this fall. Seriously. It seems every other photo on our feed features a hint of the sunny color (yes, we’re looking at you, Ada Oguntodu).

Animal prints never really go out of style (a perennial trend at this point), but after scrolling through countless images of our favorite fashion girls like Laure Eggertsen, it’s certain that this fall is all about the crazier, bolder animal prints. While leopard will always be fierce, we’re just as into the zebra look this season.

Brit + Co Pick: Zara Oversized Blazer ($119)

Cowboy Boots

If you were to look down at the feet of the biggest it girls around (or simply scroll through your IG feed), you’re bound to spot a smattering of cool western boots. The trend first gained traction after designers from Calvin Klein to Tibi featured the style on the runways. Now, cowboy boots are proving to be one of the must-haves of the season among the street elite, including Brittany Xavier.

If you’re looking for a sweet accessory to upgrade your fall look, just follow the influencer lead and opt for a stunning shell necklace or bracelet. We’re so into Maren Schia’s outfit with the multi-layered necklaces and pendants.

Brit + Co Pick:Tohum Mega Puka Necklace ($285)

Vibrant Plaid

We’ve been smitten with tartan ever since Cher Horowitz brought back the trend in a major way in the ’90s. The look has continued to crop up in a variety of iterations throughout the years (ahem, Blair Waldorf), but as the runways and now top influencers, including Nnenna Echem, are showcasing, the look is here to stay. So it’s about time we all check the trend off our fall shopping lists.

Brit + Co Pick:ASOS Check Blazer ($158)
