They say that laughter is the best medicine, and with 2020 manifesting as the darkest timeline, we could all use a good laugh right about now. In fact, even a quick chuckle is proven to relieve tension, while a down-and-out belly laugh will flood your body with feel-good endorphins. With that in mind, we turn to the fashion industry. While it represents billions of dollars a year in sales and high-octane creative output on a rapidly accelerating scale, it isn’t the first thing you think of when it comes to humor. In fact, the fashion industry has often been accused of taking itself too seriously. 

Why so serious? There’s plenty to poke fun at. Creative minds working in and adjacent to the field of fashion have turned the meme-ification of the industry into a sport. Over the years, Instagram has become a bastion of (harmless) fashion bashing, making light of everything from the struggles of being a fashion assistant to the unironic homogeneity of influencers. When you need a good laugh, turn to these 11 Instagram accounts for a guaranteed bout of brevity.

@shitbloggerspost

Do you have difficulty differentiating one influencer from another? In this day and age, we could hardly blame you. Content produced by influencers often overlaps. Whether it’s intentional or not is something of a mystery. @Shitbloggerspost has been integral in hunting those homogenized posts, and lightly skewering them by placing them side-by-side. Why are so many influencers posing identically? Wearing the exact same outfits? Standing in front of the same wavy mirror? We don’t know, but we do know that it’s worth your time to check this hilarious account out.

@siduations

Fashion, as a largely occasion and context-based medium of expression, would look highly inappropriate if displaced or recontextualized. Enter: @siduations, an Instagram page that plucks out images from runways, editorials, campaigns, and red-carpet events and places them in a different reality – thus giving birth to absurdly funny “siduations”.

@freddiemade

@Freddiemade is the brainchild of art director Freddie Smithson,whose witty Photoshop images are as funny as they are weird. Smithson superimposes the heads of celebrities and political figures on ensembles you’d never find them wearing in real life.
