No.1’s Stylish Scots: The Influencers


stylish scottish influencers

There’s a whole new wave of fashion-forward social media stars showing off their sartorial style to followers who can’t get enough.

What’s great about influencers is you can see how real women put together outfits from stores we can actually access, unlike many of the A-Listers out there.

We’ve done some digging and found the best 20 Scottish influencers out there that are worth a follow for some style tips. In no particular order…

I never really did takeaway coffee pre-lockdown but it’s kinda now become a reason to get dressed up for (not too much though – still need to play it cool in Corona times and some cappuccino foam on your front can ruin a frock). But, all joking aside, as the UK begins it’s tentative steps to open up, if your local coffee house or independent restaurant is offering takeaway, please give them the first option on your business. The big chains, for the most part, will have cash in reserve but smaller outlets maybe not, so to see them succeed give them a sale. Let them know you are there and that you care. Moving on from the soppy stuff, fasion wise I reckon these oldie but goodie @nextofficial crop jeans, @ukgap tee and @Topshop coat are perfect for working the ‘this old thing’ vibe but inside you’re bursting that someone clocked your outfit. Ps. Another flat white for me if you’re asking. . . . #sincerelyyourssusiestyle #sincerelyyourssusie #coffeebreak☕️ #coffeetogo #nextjeans #leopardlove #casualbutchic #topshopgirls #scottishstyleblogger #styleigers #igerstyle #teallifeandstyle #highstreetstyle j#justmystyle #over40styleblogger #thisis50 #bestagermodel50plus #bestagerstyle #glasgowblogger #over45style #denimaddiction

I have to admit, we’ve been so spoiled by the lovely weather over the past few days that I’m feeling quite sad that’s it’s abruptly come to an end this morning. We’ve gotten so used to our sunny walks, and being able to see people in their gardens, that the though of the three of us being stuck indoors again all week feels a bit like we’re starting lockdown all over again 🤦‍♀️ Here’s hoping the rain is short-lived and the sunshine comes back soon 🤞🏻 . . . . . #dailywalks #dailywalk #socialdistancing #afternoonwalk #dailyexercise #goforawalk #nature #longwalks #onewalkaday #isolationwalks #landscape #lockdownwalk #isolationexercise #thisisscotland #scottishviews #scottishwalks

Although her blog is aimed at ‘the over-thinkers and the perennially anxious’ and contains a ton of great content on the realities of dealing with both, we’d be amiss if we didn’t mention how stylish she looks whilst navigating these issues.

🌈 Giving up is always not an option🙅‍♀️. Get that laptop out and keep bashing out the job applications👨‍💻, Yes you! Start that business plan today. You have a job, be diligent! Still single?! Enjoy every bit of your singleness as you'll sacrifice some things once you marry. Married?! Be grateful for love and family🙌🏾. Still living with folks and just can’t wait to move out?! Enjoy it now cos you will miss this moment later. Are you one of those who say 'I can’t wait to get this…I can't wait to achieve that', why not enjoy what you have now because there will always be something you can’t wait to have/do/get. A student?! Stay focused!🤓 Above all, let's all be grateful for life🙏🏾. Some people are fighting for it. Have a beautiful week 🌈
