8 Men’s Street Style Instagrams You Need To Follow
We think a lot of men view street style like fine art – beautiful to look at, but impossible to replicate and probably unattainable. Are we saying that achieving impeccable street style is impossible? No, but it ain’t easy. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of eight men’s street style Instagram accounts that you’ve just GOT to follow if you want to learn from the pros and master your own personal style.

Street Style ≠ Streetwear

First, it’s important to note the difference between street style and streetwear. Streetwear, which looks a lot like this, is saturated with a mix of graphic tees, rare sneakers, custom bomber jackets and of course, the ever-present Supreme logo. Streetwear really is, for the most part, unattainable because part of what makes something worthy of the name is that it’s rare. Streetwear, taken to the extreme, is like fine art – valuable because it’s so hard to get your hands on it.

Men’s street style, on the other hand, is a more cultivated approach to dressing. It relies less on branded logos, and more on a thoughtful blend of pieces a man probably already owns – his dad’s vintage linen suit, an expensive top coat, a cozy scarf, sunglasses from college, a pinstripe suit, ultimate layering tees and turtlenecks, etc.

This must-follow Instagram list is not about over-the-top style but rather a group of photographers who showcase men whose style tells a story about them. Here are the accounts you should be following to get street-style inspired:
