The IT Girls of 2022 –
and why you should follow them…
What exactly is an ‘It Girl’? Urban dictionary defines her as:
The “It Girl” is the girl that EVERYONE wants to be. She has everything that you want so you tend to envy her…Urban Dictionary
The term came about in the early 20th century as celebrities started to become a thing. Clara Bow was the first ever ‘It’ Girl and over a century later, Instagram and social media have birthed a whole new era of It girls with sex appeal and fantastic dress sense. Most of them have youtube channels, ALL of them have Instagram, and the most popular ones are trending all over Pinterest too.
What are the steps to becoming an It Girl exactly? Here’s what you need to do:
- Spend time curating your Pinterest
- Create a public Instagram
- Install the apps of your favourite shops for easy access and to browse the latest trends
- Keep your wardrobe organised & fresh
- Network, network, network.
- Keep a healthy routine e.g. journal, exercise, meditate etc
- Experiment with make-up and camera angles to find what suits you best.
But anyone can be an It girl! Maybe if you start to build up your social media presence, you’ll be the next girl searched all over Pinterest.
We’ll tell you all about why you should follow each of these It Girls, and how to copy their style and aesthetic. These are just a few of the girls taking over the Instagram scene at the minute…
She may be a baby of nepotism… but Lila Moss still deserves to be in this list of 2022 It Girls. An iconic model taking after her supermodel mother Kate Moss, at just 19 years old she is already an icon of the fashoon industry herself.
Having been on magazine covers such as Vogue Japan, she has firmly placed herself in It Girl status. A quiet and introverted teen, she is the perfect fashion role model for the quiet, sweet and simple girl who loves a basic outfit but paired with crazy make-up and accesories to match.
Somehow, she manages to pull off every single possible outfit and make-up look.
She’s always ahead of the trends but strikes herself as a very girl-next-door type of woman. She doesn’t stand out from the crowd but once you notice her, you’ll never lose sight of her again!
Chloe Pearl is an NYC icon – she is always adorned in the latest designer clothing, and never repeats an outfit. From classy and simple lace to crazy mixed patterns and colours, Chloe has an extremely varied sense of style.
One minute she may be looking cute and parisian in a cottagecore dress, and the next she’s in an all-lace Chanel jumpsuit on the way to an exclusive after-party.
Every girl who like fashion and particularly designers, wants to be friends with Chloe Pearl. Alongside her huge Instagram following, she also runs a simple and comfort-watch-style youtube channel.
