We all know that fashion in Northeast is way ahead of the rest of the country. While there are way too many Instagram accounts to feature on this list, because most Northeasterns are always dressed #onfleek, we selected these top Instagram accounts. They seem to get it right always, whether it’s that cool hip jacket or a flared dress, the right shade of lip colour, interesting choice of shoes by men, clashing colours or patterns or simply going normcore with basic t-shirt and jeans. Fashion, throughout history, has played a huge role in partly shaping different cultures, influencing new ideas and unique ways of how people choose to express themselves.
We got in touch with some of the progressive and modern looks ensembles coordinated by these hippest people who come from planet vogue.
