32 Calgary Girls Who Are Absolutely Killing It On Instagram Right Now

Flexin' on the 'gram like...

If you look through any girls Instagram search history, apart from hilarious meme pages and cute boys, it's likely that you'll mostly find a long list of other girls that she regularly stalks. There's no shame in this ladies; imitation is the most sincere form of flattery!

In 2018, it's easy to admit that Instagram feeds are an art to be taken seriously. Figuring out your aesthetic, maintaining said aesthetic, constantly coming up with new content to keep your followers interested, always harassing your friends to take pictures of you when you're wearing a great outfit... The list goes on and on.

I know that I'm guilty of regularly being that annoying friend who, after spending 20 minutes scouting out the perfect location, begs my friends to snap hundreds of photos of me in candid poses in attempt to get the perfect shot. In all honesty though, I'd say it pays off. My 'gram looks pretty good, if I do say so myself 😉.

I'll be the first to admit, though, I've got nothing on these ladies. Calgary is a city that's full of creative geniuses, and the state of their Instagram feeds is more than enough evidence to support my statement. After a few long hours of scrolling through multiple YYC ladies, we've come up with a list of some of our favourites for you to enjoy and (hopefully) follow!

This list isn't ranked in any particular order and, of course, there's plenty of amazing talent that we didn't include! Get some inspiration for your next post from some of our cities' best:
