12 Stylish People On Instagram Who Prove Age Is Irrelevant

No matter how old you are, the coolest thing is to just be yourself

Paula Sutton, @hillhousevintage

The main star, other than herself of course, is her picturesque Georgian house in Norfolk, where the former editor has lived for ten years  before which she was an editor at UK Elle.

Based in Rotterdam, Najate Leklye is the star of her daughter Meryem Slimani's Instagram account — the bio of which reads “My mum took over my Instagram I’m now just here to take her pics.” Leklye's style is fresh, personal and thoroughly modern — layering streetwear, florals, traditional Moroccan dress, and inventive colour together into a melange of culture and identity.

Helen Ruth Elam Van Winkle, @baddiewinkle

Famous for her searingly bright outfits, irreverent approach to style and bawdy sense of humour, Helen Ruth Elam Van Winkle — aka Baddie Winkle — has been an Instagram celebrity for a few years now (Rihanna's a fan) and her optimistic fashion sense is particularly mood elevating right now.

Michele Lamy, @michelelamy_

She needs no introduction (Michele Lamy is an iconic creative figure, and Rick Owens' other half) but her unique, eccentric style is an enduring favourite of ours and feels very of-the-moment for 2020's dystopian mood. To be honest, we're lucky she's even on Instagram.

Yasmin Furmie, @yasminfurmie

With her closely cropped hair and quirky style, Yasmin Furmie is a fashion designer and influencer worth following for fresh and accessible style inspiration.
