Who to follow on Instagram #38


Just when you thought you could ‘grow out of’ Instagram – Lyn Slater of @AccidentalIcon is here to make to take a step back and think about ‘age’ in fashion differently. I grew up in an age where hitting 35 meant you started dressing like a mum… this then changed over time to dressing like a granny at 50+. I’m lucky that my mum is way cooler and trendier that I will ever be so I realised about 10 years back that wasn’t the case. Lyn started her blog when she found everything in magazines unreliable – I think that was the common driving force for the rise of the blog.

I started Accidental Icon for women (like me) who are not famous or celebrities but are smart, creative, fashion forward, fit, thoughtful, engaged, related and most importantly clear and comfortable with who they are

For me Lyn oozes effortless style, the style of someone who truly knows and loves who they are. She’s not afraid to stand out,  but her fashion fearlessness never seems cheap or try-hard. It is always shown with integrity and candour and if you want a breath of fresh air on your feed I recommend following her.
