Featured Stylish Travel Girls Spring 2015

Best of Instagram: Featured Stylish Travel Girls (Spring 2015 Edition)

What is it about travel photography that makes travel so enticing? In a single frame we get a glimpse of a moment in someone else’s life, a look at their experience in an unfamiliar place. Perhaps it’s our chance to live vicariously through another. Or maybe it’s our inspiration for making travel plans of our own. An emotion, a sense of place, a person’s style… so much can be captured in a single-frame. And the resulting effect on the viewer can be profound.

Three weeks ago, I announced our first Instagram hashtag competition: Tag your best stylish travel ‘grams for a chance to be featured on STG.

Well, I’m happy to report we had some fantastic (and ever so stylish) entries — and it took some serious self-control on my part to select just 8 — but here we have her: the stylish traveling woman. She’s fashionable. She’s adventurous. She’s photogenic. And she’s all over the globe!

Whatever your reaction, I hope you felt something, and I hope you felt inspired by this month’s selection of stylish travel girl photos on Instagram. Which one was your favorite?

Thanks to everyone for your submissions these past few weeks. You ladies sure know how to make travel look enticing! I’m really looking forward to seeing our next round of submissions from all of you stylish travelers out there, so please keep tagging!

Didn’t get featured this time? Not to worry! Our next #stylishtravelgirl feature post is less than a “world” away. Entries are accepted on a rolling basis, so keep tagging to your heart’s content. Entries from past rounds are eligible for future selection, too, so all hope’s not lost. We might just be saving your photo for a future featured post!

Photo submission tips: Want the best chance of having your photo selected? We just have a few guidelines. You’ll notice all of our selected entries above have these things in common:

  1. Female subject
  2. Travel theme
  3. Square format (no vertical or horizontal spacers)

Stick to those simple rules, and you’ll surely have your face (or feet, or silhouette… we’re flexible here!) plastered on our site in no time.
