Here are our seven favourite Instagram accounts especially curated for vintage enthusiasts to revel in fashion and photography of bygone eras and find endless inspiration from iconic fashion moments.
@woodstockings – This Instagram account is for people who feel displaced in our current era, or for anyone who feels nostalgic about Woodstock and its culture. The account captures iconic people and moments from the 60s and 70s, along with everything else that made that era seem whimsical and carefree.
@seventiees – This account could seemingly be run by a hippie going to iconic concerts and events in America in the 60s and 70s.
@costumeinstitutelibrary – Run by Julie Lê, the librarian at the Irene Lewisohn Costume Reference Library at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, this is an account for fashion history nerds and bookworms to get lost in and find beautiful inspiration. Plus, the photographs in the books make for a great aesthetic in itself.
@elegantlypapered – Following the same aesthetic as @costumeinstitutelibrary, this account features a vibrant display of pictures in magazines. It shows old covers of magazines like The Telegraph, Égoiste, Twen etc. The account feels like you’re back in time and Instagram is around…
@vintagefashion – Is Kate Moss vintage already? Maybe we can stomach that since it was a photo from the early 90s and, as much as we hate to admit, that was 20 years ago. It’s clear that this account has a very liberal definition of “vintage.”
@staleywisegallery – This account is gorgeous and makes us feel like we are walking through an art gallery! Beautiful photographs of Twiggy and young Marilyn Munroe fill the accounts tiles.
@novemberbooks – You will find photos that are as romantic as its name, with its black and white photos of rockers from the 70s. This account is perfect if you’re not able to go to November Books headquarter in London.
