I can't really explain it, but the average new york fashion seems to be disproportionately more stylish than the residents of any other city across the country. Credit the fashion industry's strong presence or the opportunity for great street style at every turn, but the city is teeming with inspirational style. Short of hopping on the next flight to the East Coast destination to witness for yourself, getting your fill of NYC style is as easy as following some of its best-dressed citizens on Instagram.
Since there's a good chance that we all follow the same few fashion bloggers on the platform already, we're branching out and highlighting an inspirational group of women from across the fashion, music, and art worlds. From fine artists and DJs to editors and stylists, each of the following women has a unique approach to personal style that we love to follow and know you will, too.
Scroll down to discover nine women with the best non-blogger NYC style and get ready to hit follow.

Juliana's a regular on the street style scene and has built an impressive résumé at NYC fashion companies from Ganni to Man Repeller. The Miami native has a knack for styling all the It pieces of the moment in an unfussy way.
Alana Johnson, designer for Orseund Iris
As the designer behind It brand Orseund Iris, Alana naturally fills her personal feed with the brand's latest pieces, but her own style balances her brand's romance with a more grunge-inflected downtown vibe.
