9. Freddie Harrel
@freddieharrel / freddieharrel.com
Originally from Paris, London stole Freddie’s heart years ago. What’s interesting about her is that she doesn’t consider herself a fashion blogger in the conventional sense (she’s also a confidence consultant). Freddie’s strong opposition to fitting into a box and being categorised shows in her style, which can be described as playful, girly, and colourful (with a dash of black). Her unbreakable belief that everyone is a spectrum of different characters is the reason why she can throw together an outfit that’s appropriate for pretty much any mood and occasion! Get inspired by the funky patterns and bright colours. Frédérique is on of the UK’s top bloggers, and this can be seen through her 127,000 followers.
Frédérique has worked with brands such as; TK Maxx, No7 UK, and Ted Baker.
10. Hannah Marshall
Hannah is an up and coming fashion conscious arts student, with nearly 20,000 followers on Instagram. Hannah has the smallest following on our list, but this doesn’t mean she doesn’t boast an impressive likes ratio on her posts, averaging just over 1,000 likes per fashion post. Hannah is truly on her way to becoming one of the best fashion related UK based Instagrammers, with her retro and vintage style, it’s easy to see why.
Hannah has worked with brands such as; Lola May clothing, Chatoyer, and Lily Lulu.
