12 Chic New Yorkers to Follow on Instagram

These New Yorkers are giving their followers an inside track on the city’s style and lifestyle.

Eva Chen

It’s no surprise that the head of fashion at Instagram has an enviable presence on the platform. Chen, who was previously the editor-in-chief of Lucky and famously created the #EvaChenPose on Instagram, gives her followers a glimpse at her busy life in New York, from snaps from the front row at Fashion Week, to book signings and time at home with her two children. Chen is fully unfiltered about everything that goes into the high-octane life (hello, Met Gala!) as well as the infinitely relatable everyday moments, from flight delays to what is actually feels like to live in high heels (see above).

Favorite week! 🤎

Charnas, the founder of lifestyle, fashion, and media brand Something Navy, curates an Instagram feed that is a fun mix of work and play. From scenes inside the Something Navy office to life at home with her two kids, no part of Charnas’ life is off limits to her followers–which might explain why her 1.3 million fans are so devoted to the influencer-turned-entrepreneur.

Wes Gordon

The young creative director’s instagram gives plenty of behind-the-scenes looks into one of the world’s most celebrated fashion houses: Caroline Herrera. Wes takes us into the Herrera atelier, and offers glimpses of how the brand’s collection, fashion shows, and ad campaigns come to life. Gordon’s adorable dog is also a frequent co-star.

Jenna Lyons

The former creative director of J.Crew is quickly growing her following with hilarious, stylish glimpses from all aspects of her life. Be prepared to be captivated by someone who is ready to show you just how human fashionistas can be.

Hannah Bronfman

The entrepreneur, author, and founder of HBFIT: Health Beauty and Fitness is also here to give you travel inspiration. Bronfman is often on the go (recent trips include visits to Bali, Australia, and Miami) with her husband Brendan Fallis, but when she’s not in a far-flung location, Bronfman is usually posting self-care Sunday fitness and wellness content.

Leandra Medine

Man Repeller founder Leandra Medine’s personal Instagram feed is exactly as fashion-filled and fun as you would imagine. Medine’s content mix includes OOTD posts, which are an endless source of style inspiration, scenes from inside the Man Repeller office, and adorable moments courtesy of Medine’s twin daughters. After watching one of Medine’s “Week in Reviews” Instagram stories, which recaps her entire week with hilarious commentary, you’ll feel like you just caught up with your chicest (and wittiest) friend.

Jeremy O. Harris

Theater fanatics, say hello to your new favorite follow. Jeremy O. Harris, the playwright behind the critically acclaimed Slave Play, is one of Broadway’s buzziest new stars, and he takes his Instagram audience along for the ride. From candid moments backstage at his show to scenes from daily life around New York, Harris shares a little bit of everything on his Instagram, and you won’t want to miss a second of the action.

Stephanie Nass

Stephanie Nass (“Chefanie”) is a self-described maximalist, and her brightly-patterned world of whimsical food and tabletop speak to that in her instagram as well as her day job as a caterer, chef, and entrepreneur. In addition to matching everything (from her dress to the tablecloth) her meals and tablescapes are equal parts delicious and chic. Last year, she expanded her Chefanie empire to include such accessories as wicker baskets.

Come for the style inspiration (Viera-Newton is the designer of cool-girl staple HVN), stay for the selfies. Viera-Newton’s growing Instagram audience experiences all sides of her globe-trotting life, complete with chic mirror pictures, high-fashion moments, and the occasional cute cat photo.

Krystal Bick

Krystal Bick takes street style to the next level on Instagram. The creator of the travel site This Time Tomorrow, Bick turns everyday scenes into full-on fashion spreads, donning designer pieces in Central Park and on the steps of the New York Public Library and bringing disarming charm to her posts.

Zach Weiss

Man-about-town Zach Weiss gives his followers an inside look at New York’s breakneck-paced social scene. Weiss, a columnist for British GQ who also writes for Vogue, Architectural Digest, and Travel + Leisure, doesn’t spare the humor in his posts’ signature captions. Weiss is invariably dressed for the occasion–and isn’t afraid of a statement jacket or an extremely on-theme sweater.
