Instagram Style Challenges Decoded

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I post my outfits daily and use several different hashtags to participate in style challenges. Today, I am here to decode what an Instagram Style Challenge is and how you can participate!

I am here to decode what an Instagram Style Challenge is and how you can participate!


What is it? 

A group of fashionistas come up with a list of daily prompts that you have to interpret with your outfit. Many of the style challenges offer weekly or monthly prizes that consist of gift cards, accessories, and clothing.

Why participate?

It is a fun way to interact with other women, find new friends, and be inspired to style pieces you already own in a different way. I love seeing how the other ladies interpret a prompt. They inspire me to mix and match patterns and pieces I would not normally put together. I also like to give myself a personal goal of seeing how many style challenge prompts I can squeeze out of one outfit!


How to participate?

If you search the #stylechallenge, you can probably find some challenges to try. Here is a list of the ones I participate in regularly. Some of them have the month in them which changes monthly, but you can search on them and find the prompts. All you have to do is look at the daily prompt, interpret it some way in your outfit, then post your picture to Instagram using the appropriate hashtag.

There are plenty of other ones out there, but I try to keep it to about five, so I do not get overwhelmed. I want to be inspired, not stressed, about getting dressed!
