Pinterest is especially alluring to fashion and beauty enthusiasts. Whether you’re looking for the latest runway trends or a chic updo, Pinterest has got you covered. Even designers such as Michael Kors and fashion bloggers like Emily Schuman (Cupcakes and Cashmere) have taken to Pinterest to share their daily inspirations.
Whether you’re a Pinterest pro or a newbie, here are 10 fashion and beauty Pinterest accounts that may have slipped under your radar. Happy pinning!
The DC Style Syndicate, a board featuring fashion from the nation’s capital.
2. WWDWomen’s Wear Daily (WWD) is basically the fashion bible. Read religiously by fashionistas everywhere, the editors of this daily newspaper clearly know their stuff. To fulfill your passion for fashion, become a follower of WWD and have boards such as “RTW Fall 2012,” “Front Row” and “They Are Wearing” at your convenience.
Erica Domesek (she also has a blog!). If you’ve already completed every runway-inspired DIY project featured in her book (and are yearning for more), then you’ve come to the right place! Follow Erica’s creative boards and you’ll be able to fully embrace her motto: “I see it, I like it, I make it.”
5. Refinery 29The popular website for emerging trends, fresh collaboration lines and the best in style is now on Pinterest (and I couldn’t be more excited!). Providing readers with content that may not necessarily appear on their site, Refinery 29’s boards include a hodgepodge of unique finds. So far, I’m already obsessed with “Shoe Stalking” and “Eye Candy.”
With over 1,800 pins, how could I not spotlight this fashion journalist’s (and Project Runway judge) Pinterest account? From spring to fall 2012 trends, and everything else in between, Nina Garcia’s 82 boards will keep you up-to-date on every micro and macro trend this season and next!

Kate Spade, presents you with an amalgamation of artsy and fun pins to peruse through. Known for their bright greens, pinks and yellows, they have “colorfully” arranged their boards in a way that will inspire you to think outside the box when it comes to fashion. From “dress colorfully” to “celebrate colorfully,” their pins are just as whimsical as the brand itself.
