style bloggers Instagram

I know when you think of The Gloss you immediately think, “hard-hitting investigative journalism,” and that is exactly the reputation I’m here to solidify, right here, right now. First, I went in firsthand, undercover you might say, and tackled “10 Poses Every Fashion Blogger Does,” from “Laughing into the Abyss” to “The Stoop Kid.” Word on the street (also known as the comments section) is that I totally nailed it.

But now I really wanted to dig deep into these fashion and lifestyle bloggers’ Instagram feeds. Brought to you by hours of scrolling and a keen eye for berries, I present: the 10 photographs every style blogger takes.

1. The Brunch Shot

The brunch shot is more than a trend, it’s an epidemic. One that’s moving to infect even us commoners. I’ve done it, you’ve done it, let’s just all admit it.

2. Bloggers Love Berries

Seriously, bloggers love berries more than fashion.

This particular shot is from @creativewithak, but I swear this exact photo showed up on my feed at least 12 times this summer.

Who the hell can blame them, there is some mad cool graffiti in my Instagram feed and I love it.

4. The “I Eat Junk Food, Just Like You!”

Just kidding, I’m sure even the most modelesque (new word) bloggers indulge every once in awhile.

I’ve never known so many people to be fascinated by cute doors in real life, but apparently this fixation is all too real.
