STYLE - Why We Choose Pinterest Over Instagram For Fashion Inspiration
Sharing earlier how we sometimes feel suffocating seeing the same-same but different styles on Instagram, we have been loving Pinterest more day after day when searching for true fashion and style inspirations, so we are excited to share with you why!
1. You Get What You Ask For - Inspiration
Via Who What Wear UK
Have you ever Googled a date night outfit or what to combine with a pleated skirt for the office? We’ve all done it. On Pinterest, we find some gorgeous imagery that gives us so many a-ha moments from learning how one piece could be styled with another in so many different ways. Given how today's influencers brainwash us with sponsored outfits instead of their own style choices, it feels so good to take the control and search for a style with our own free will. For those who feel lost in the Instagram bubble, Pinterest cuts the clutter, showing what you are truly looking for.
2. Scrapbooking Is Timeless
You’re no longer cutting out images and sticking them in your scrapbook like when you were a kid, but Pinterest is the next best thing. The cool thing is all inspirations we find are not restricted to posting time, which makes the whole thing timeless. So searching for floral dress lets you see floral dresses in endless varieties from office style to latest Paris street style. Every woman at our She Is Rebel HQ is literally big fan of pinning outfits on private Pinterest boards and making decisions like a style genius on what we need to shop, or wear to next occasion.
3. Inspiration Is Not Forced
Inspiration comes from what we happen to chance upon, it comes from what we absorb out accidently and sometimes this can be done unconsciously. When we open up Instagram and everything is almost force-fed to us, can we truly call this inspiration? Yes, we may still be soaking it up, but not in an inspiring way; instead more of a comparative way. We don’t voluntarily search for these “style icons” on Instagram with “Instagram baddie” captions. However, when we look for “minimalist dressing” on Pinterest, we can take what we want from it and learn more about what we like and dislike. Inspiration is supposed to be natural, and no way dictated like on Instagram.
Now that you know why we are in love with Pinterest when it comes to getting true style inspirations, here are a few of our favorite boards for you to test out yourself.

2. Style Tips: How To Make The Most Of Fashion
