First off, if you have an iPhone and haven’t gotten hooked on Instagram yet, what are you waiting for? I’ve heard Instagram described as “like Twitter, but updates are all visual.” I like to think of it as a photo diary I share through Earlybird tinted lenses – or perhaps Hefe?

Being a style girl and all, I especially like seeing Instagram photos tagged with fashion-minded hashtags like #whatimwearing and #fashiondiaries.

Insta-Trend #1: The Arm Party

Which leads me to our #1 insta-trend – “The Arm Party” a phrase coined by blogger Leandra Medine of Man Repeller, who is particularly fond of sharing her eclectic mix of bracelets aka “Arm Party.”  To give you a better idea of this infatuation with bracelets and bangles (the more, the better), there are 836 photos attached to the #armparty”  on Instagram as of 2:34am this morning.

Insta-Trend #2: The Collar

Since blouses and collars in particular are having a moment, I predict we will be seeing more and more embellished collars and buttoned-up collars adorned with statement necklaces on and off Instagram. This would make for the perfect DIY weekend project! Find a once-loved blouse and add some studs or a touch of whimsy by stitching a contrasting color.

I (stylegirljj) will look forward to seeing your Arm Party and Collars on Instagram soon! Till then, #armpartypower?
