The 10 Best Style Instagrams Of The Week

What’s black and white and lit all over edition.

July 31, 2015

Instagram is a vast, vast place. It also happens to provide the best sartorial inspiration you can find, if you know where to look. In her new weekly column, FADER style writer Liz Raiss goes into an Instagram K-hole and comes out with 10 great snaps from the past seven days. This week—perhaps inspired by Skepta's comprehensive NYC takeover—it's all about black & white. From chiaroscuro photography to monochromatic fits, you don't need anything but god and death to look fly.
