How to Become Instagram Fashion Famous

Many style mavens and fashion icons showcase their looks on Instagram. Traditional means, such as magazines are taking a backseat to photo-sharing apps when it comes to fashion inspiration. Two hundred million people use Instagram, according to official reports.

The people on Instagram share approximately 60 million photos every day. Here are three tips to help you join these people on the path to fashion fame.

Brand Yourself Across All Your Social Media Accounts

If you want to have a successful social media following, across all platforms, you should brand yourself. You should narrow down your niche, then decide which photo suits your personality. You want to photo that fits your niche and reflects who you are. Use the same photo of all your social media profiles. Potential followers and users can identify you by your image. Consistency is key.

If you have a website, make sure to include a link in your “about me” section on your social media profile. You should include a short and sweet description that says who you are and what you followers see when they look at your images. For example, “Personal stylist with an addiction to lipstick”. After establishing your brand, you can tell your story through your photos.

Use Hashtags and Connect with Brands

The hashtag was suggested by a developer, Chris Messina, according to Mashable. He proposed that Twitter should group topics on the social platform using the hash symbol. Initially, this idea was rejected.

The idea caught on when a group of journalists started using the hashtags for reporting breaking news. Today, hashtags are supported on platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, and Google Plus. This alongside sites such as Vibbi can help you increase your follower base.

Each post created should contain an appropriate and thoughtful hashtag. You don’t want to go overboard, although some users make the common mistake of including dozens of hashtags.

You want to avoid looking spammy, so keep things simple. Only use a few hashtags. Try to keep it to three or less. You can add context to your content with hashtags. However, don’t make the mistake of using hashtags in captions.

The designer handbag brand Coach creates branded hashtags for their followers and fans to use. For examples, if you search for #MyFirstCoach on Instagram, you’ll see that there are 1,712 posts which feature the designer’s shoes, elegant watches, leather wallets and luxury handbags.

When you use a hashtag on Instagram, other users can share their photos with their followers, your potential followers, and the brand. Coach dedicates a page on the site to photos tagged with the hashtag. This is a win-win situation for both the user and brand. For you, it offers you the chance to gain exposure to potential followers.

Show Off Your Stuff

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a makeup maven, full-circle fashionista, handbag snob, or designer show aficionado, Instagram is the best place to share your fashionable pieces and most coveted accessories with other users around the world.

Now, you don’t want to go walking into your closet, snapping photos with your smartphone. Instead, stage your favorite item. Carefully plan each shot. When staging, make sure all of the pieces in the shot complement each other.

Use your fashion sense to create elegant pairings of watches and jewelry, or wallets and handbags. This will help to inspire your followers to “like” your photos and double-tap your images.
