Untitled design (6)

It is the best of both worlds for those of us who love fashion and books at ELLE. So, when I was assigned this piece to write about new book accounts to follow, I figured why not combine both fashion and books, for isn’t picking out a book from a row of shelves based on its cover and summary kinda sorta similar to picking out a dress from a rack based on its colour and texture?

So, without further ado, here are 7 accounts, which perfectly capture #fashionandbooks with snappy and aesthetic photos (and reviews).



Matching your shoes and handbag perfectly to each other is an old-school concept. The latest trend is to match your book to your handbag. The meticulously planned and curated grid is a fashion look book that will keep up enthralled and inspired.

So, now that your book matches your bag, it’s time for your lipstick. Meet Megan of @literaturelipstick, where she matches her lipstick to the book she is reading. A delightful way to discover new shades to try on and new books that you might want to read.

Kimberly of @lattes_lipstick_literature stands in front of her bookshelf and her closet, deciding which book to read and what outfit would match the cover. The result. — an eclectic mix and match of clothes (some of which are thrifted) that are a call to either the book cover or a character.

Gitte Tofte is a book reviewer living in Denmark. She pairs her books with incredible shoes from her closet. The effect is striking, and gorgeous. Carrie Bradshaw would give her a follow.

Tofte reviews mostly contemporary books, translated literature (she has a highlight on Japanese books, which you should definitely check out), and a sprinkling of children’s books.



Nai’a of @nayareadsandsmiles is a popular booktube-r. Her instagram grid captures her impressive knack of replicating her make up and outfit to match that of her current book she is reading and review.

Victor of @bookpop_ is credited on social media for creating the #bookcovericons challenge where people have to match a book cover to their favourite celebrity icon.
