Five Irish fashion influencers to follow for AW style inspiration

We’re still waiting for the weather to decide what exactly it’s doing, but in the meantime, we’re prepping our AW wardrobes for when the chill arrives.

While Instagram and TikTok are saturated with style influencers, we’re here for supporting Irish gals and also, hello – you’re gonna be able to get their looks readily delivered to Ireland. Unless they do that really annoying ‘I got this in a tiny boutique in Guadalajara’ thing – we won’t dwell.

First up, Rachel Ivie. She’s got the basics nailed, she always looks chic (and maybe even a little bit French?) and she has the most delicious handbag collection. Everything she owns seems to work with everything else she owns, which is enviable, and she’s also got two small children, so you know whatever she wears for day time is gonna be comfy enough to wrangle children in.

Next, Carol Byrne. If you’ve got an autumn or winter wedding to attend, or you just love a fancy occasion, Carol is your go-to this season. She does occasionwear like no one else, and makes absolutely everything from Zara look like a Vera Wang gown.

Then we have BillyKiss, who is doing 90s era throwbacks to perfection, killing it with prints and co-ords and wearing bodysuits that would leave Kim Kardashian for dust.

Next up, model and style influencer Louise O’Reilly. She’s long since been our curve style influence, and she’s an advocate for diversity in fashion which we love to see. Louise always finds the best bits in store and does try-ons at home, showing how various items will fit on curves.

Lastly, Nicole Gaffney, whose transitional wardrobe post gave us all the AW inspo. She’s also in the middle of wedding planning so giving glimpses of that among all the fashion – and she’s great for a beauty recommendation as well.
