There are three things I always do as soon as I wake up: check my texts, check my Facebook notifications, and check my Twitter. That’s right- I’m obsessed with Twitter. If you’re an addict like yours truly, you love reading your friends’ random thoughts and the latest on your favorite celebrities. Fashionistas, it’s time to give your Twitter feed a very chic makeover by following style mavens, designers, and publications. But who exactly are you supposed to follow? Here are ten awesome Twitter accounts you must follow. If you don’t, you’re committing a major fashion faux pas.
1. Diane von Furstenberg (@DVF)
Who doesn’t like Diane von Furstenberg? From her brand’s feminine and chic aesthetic to her lovable personality, Diane von Furstenberg is the reigning queen of fashion. She tweets all about her chic adventures as well as inspirational quotes. How nice!
Favorite Tweet: “Beauty is perfect in its imperfections…enjoy who you are! love Diane”
2. Derek Blasberg (@DerekBlasberg)
If you’re not familiar with this fashionisto, I suggest you follow him ASAP. Here’s a crash-course in all things Blasberg: he’s an Editor- at- Large at Harper’s Bazaar and wrote the hysterical fashion book Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady. With Mr. Blasberg, expect a quirky array of chic and hilarious tweets. Both of them are sure to make you smile!
Favorite Tweet: “Random Question: How long do you think we have to wait before roller-blading is cool again? (I’ve saved my blades from 1999, just in case.)”
3. The Cut Blog (@cutblog)
As any fashionista knows, this is a fast paced industry and staying up to date is must! When you follow The Cut, New York Magazine’s fashion blog, you’ll get the latest news in 140 characters. Being a fashion guru just got a million times easier!
Favorite Tweet: “Giorgio Armani accused of trying to steal Stella McCartney’s Olympic thunder”
4. DKNY PR Girl (@dkny)
DKNY PR Girl is notorious for her “stream of consciousness” tweets. From discussing the latest Gossip Girl scandal during commercial breaks to DNKY updates and other fashion news, Aliza Licht (the brains behind the Twitter handle) tweets like she’s our BFF. Best fashion friend, that is!
Favorite Tweet: “Yes hair, this is what I’ve been talking about. Well done”
5. Refinery 29 (@Refinery29)
Fine, I’ll confess: I’m guilty of feverishly reading Refinery 29 articles on my phone during lectures. Can you blame me? Refinery 29 has some of the best articles out there (besides Her Campus, of course)! If you want to read some fun articles, follow Refinery 29 on Twitter for constant updates.
If you’re on a quest for fashion humor, look no further! This style/ photography blogger gives us a combination of runway reports and jokes that only the most stylish will understand. As a side note, who doesn’t wish their dad was Tom Ford?
Favorite Tweet: “I have the worst migraine. I blame Kanye West Fall/Winter 2012.”
7. Anna Dello Russo (@annadellorusso)
As you’re cramming for midterms in the library, you can’t help but daydream about a glamorous life filled with fierce friends and awesome accessories. Basically, you just wish you were Anna Dello Russo. Follow this fashion powerhouse and live vicariously through all her enivable excursions.
Favorite Tweet: “Practice yoga and get ready for NY fashion show, Tory Burch at 9.30am!”
8. Sarah Brown (@SBVogue)
Three words: Vogue Beauty Director. Do I really need to say more? Since fashion and beauty go hand in hand, this one’s a given.
Favorite Tweet: “suddenly very much appreciating the fur earmuff. #goodlook”
9. Cathy Horyn (@CathyHorynNYT)
Don’t you wish you could attend all the hottest runway shows during Fashion Week? I feel your pain. Cathy Horyn, a fashion critic for The New York Times, tweets about looks as they strut down the runway. You can trust her opinion- she writes runway reports for a living!
Favorite Tweet: “Fur sleeves, fur collars at Wu, and a strange hat with a gold knob on top. Very fitted jackets, and gold brocade. Lots of Chinese motifs”
10. Scott Schuman (@sartorialist)
If you’re a fashion fanatic, chances are that you dream of being photographed by Scott Schuman. His blog, The Sartorialist, is a stylista’s ultimate guide to awesome street style. As a busy collegiette, adding “check out all your favorite fashion blogs” to your to-do list isn’t as easy as it seems. Scott Schuman’s tweets serve as a friendly reminder to check out his blog and appreciate street style.
Favorite Tweet: “I’m so humbled that @garancedore and I won the CFDA Media Award. It hasn’t sunk yet but its very special and even more to have it with G”
