12 Silver Stunners to Follow on Instagram

Your Instagram could use a lot more gray — and we’re not talking the Inkwell filter. Rather, these models, influencers, and content creators who all share one thing: They’re comfortable in their own skin and empowered by their gray hair. Double-tapping, here you come.

Sarah Jane Adams

Against these rocks, we merely hang by a thread. 🌋 These threads include tattered old Banares silk skirt purchased from street market 20 years back in Jodhpur. 💃🏻 Second hand Embroidered Balochi dress from an Afghani trader friend. 🐪 Vintage silk taffeta Saks of Fifth Avenue tartan shirt found in vintage store near Joshua Tree. 🌵 The presence of others sensed within the threads of all these garments give me courage, quiet, solace and strength. 👁🙏👁 Photo taken on my last USA trip by the inimitable @advancedstyle 📷 #saramai #sarahjaneadams #threads #ootd #mywrinklesaremystripes #givethanks #covering #gratitude #baluchidress #varanasi

A post shared by Sarah Jane Adams (@saramaijewels) on

Just a few of Sarah’s mantras to live by: Wrinkles are your stripes. Prime time is now. And age is irrelevant. If those don’t inspire, then her splashy fashion pics and enviable travelogue certainly will.

Thinking of letting your gray grow out? Scroll through the model’s feed — filled with beautiful shots of her stunning silver swoop — for all the convincing you need. Bonus: chummy driver’s-seat featurettes.

A post shared by Caroline Labouchere (@carolinelabouchere) on

Editorial and seemingly ripped from the pages of a glossy mag, Labouchere’s feed is also flooded with intimate shots of family (pups included) and marathoning pics that’ll make you want to lace up those sneaks.

Daphne Selfe

One of my favourite photos from my @opsm campaign. Be stylish, no matter what your age! #models1 @models_1uk @models1classic

A post shared by Daphne Selfe (@daphneselfe) on

Who wouldn’t want to follow a go-getter who gives aging the middle finger? Especially when that middle finger’s styled in a rad hot-pink cutoff glove that matches her rad born-to-be-wild attitude.

Teruko Laura

Gray on Gray on Gray 🖤 Photographer @nicthephotochic / Makeup @christinenataya . . . #photography #naturalhair #grayhair #curlyhair #model #fashionover50 #style #editorial #fashionmodel #unretouched #grateful

A post shared by Question Authority Always. (@terukolaura) on

Meet Teruko: a Los Angeles model whose day job is wanderlust with a paycheck. And forgive us for sounding cheesy, but that. smile. is. contagious. All ye who enter here in a bad mood, consider it dispelled.

A post shared by Grece Ghanem (@greceghanem) on

Think you have to be a certain age to rock an oversize biker jacket or clompy Balenciaga Triple S kicks? Grece, a Montreal-based trainer and IG influencer, is here to tell you: Think again. Also, serious Gucci fanny pack envy ahead.

Linda Rodin

Thanks everyone @whowhatwear and @sophieelgort ❤️🎨

A post shared by Linda Rodin. (@lindaandwinks) on

Linda Rodin period. That’s all she wrote, folks. A bio as simple and effortless as the beauty and style she exudes. So allow us to elaborate: Beauty brand ace and international cult phenom dominates with irresistible poodle, Winky, at her side.

Lyn Slater

I’ve had an old, and made a new career, from disrupting labels 💥 Join me in the @riverisland campaign for inclusion: #labelsareforclothes For every t-shirt purchased and campaign hashtag shared @riverisland will make a donation to @ditchthelabel #wearingri #ad

A post shared by Accidental Icon (@iconaccidental) on

Accidental Icon: It’s a moniker that stuck after street-style photogs captured Slater in a Yohji Yamamoto suit at a NYFW. But she’s more than just an enthusiast of designer threads; she’s a professor, activist, and music vid gurl.

Gillean McLeod

Off we go into 2018. I’m ready. 📷 @markhanauer Dress @maisonmargiela #modellife

A post shared by Gillean McLeod (@gilleanmcleod) on

Food, travel, retro ads she worked on years ago — it’s all here in the mom, stylist, H&M swimwear model’s feed, and it’s all so scroll-dictive. Especially her Ice Cream Sundays tradition. (Stealing that one.)

Claudine Penedo

Get whisked away to Paree, Malibu, and Switzerland, courtesy of Penedo’s expertly curated hodgepodge of a woman at work. But inspo doesn’t stop at pretty portraits: Poetry, expressions of gratitude, and motivational quips add serious substance.

Looking for fitness inspiration? If ever there were a reason to take up yoga, it would be Hillary’s picture-proof account that captures the spiritual and physical effects of the namaste habit. And those leggings!

Melanie Kobayashi

What I wore when I wanted to dress maculine/feminine and high-brow/low-brow: vintage Emporio Armani jacket, men's Diesel T, jeans, men's narrow shoes, and a pretty ribbon to keep my bag from falling off. Love those nerd-cool clip-on sunnies too. . More on my blog. . . #emporioarmani #bardotjeans #dieseltshirt #vancouverstylist

A post shared by @ bagandaberet on

Upcycled clothing, lunch bags as handbags, celebrating individuality — these are just a few of Kobayashi’s favorite things. An original soul, she also launched one of our favorite things: the Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show, her response to online hate she received after wearing the sunny piece.
