Up-And-Coming Style Icons To Follow Now

For fresh inspiration

These days, great style inspiration is literally just at our fingertips and that, in theory, you're always just a few taps away from discovering your next fashion muse. But that's not really the case, is it? Social media is littered with noise, and finding good, unique content is ironically harder than ever. To help you sift through the digital pile, we created a list of ladies whose style caught our eye. From rising actresses to emerging fashion influencers, keep reading to get to know these up-and-coming style icons.

Elle Fanning

We know, it's strange to think of Elle Fanning as an up-and-coming style icon when the actress first had her screen debut decades ago at age two. But arguably, the 21-year-old is just now coming into her own brand of style and it's blowing us away. From showing up at Cannes Festival wearing envy-worthy ensembles like the pastel pink pantsuit to her cute casual looks, Elle Fanning is proving to be a style icon in the making.

Sadie Sink

Stranger Things breakout star Sadie Sink was introduced to us as a second lead, but the actress is now making a name for herself and growing a solid fanbase of her own. She kickstarted 2019 on a good note by starring in Kate Spade New York's Spring/Summer 2019 campaign. And in red carpet events and fashion weeks this year, she's spotted wearing unforgettable eccentric ensembles. We're excited to see her fashion evolution as she grows into a young lady. She's truly one to watch out for!


YouTuber Ashley of the channel BestDressed is one of the promising fashion influencers these days. Amassing an impressive following — bordering on two million now — in just a few years, Ashley is on a steady path towards style stardom. Her videos consist of the traditional lookbooks, how-to style tips and some personal lifestyle content.

Waikei Tong

With a feed full of fresh, colourful looks, it's no surprise that Waikei's following has doubled since her New York days back in 2016. Aside from getting some serious style inspiration from her cute and carefree outfits, her Instagram can also serve as a mini travel guide for discovering the most Instagrammable spots in various destinations.

Sophia Roe

Discover fresh spins on the minimalistic style by following Sophia Roe. Based in the idyllic city of Copenhagen, stylist Sophia posts about details of her style and general minimalist aesthetic. But what separates her feed from other minimalist-themed ones is the experimentation with elements from other more flamboyant aesthetics while still maintaining that crisp, sleek feel we all love.
