10 Influencers to Follow During SXSW

10 social media stars worth following... and their secrets for surviving SXSW.

We partnered the gurus of stylish lists at Rank & Style to seek out 10 women you should follow on Instagram before the fest.

1. Laurel Pantin, Editorial Director, Coveteur
@lapantin
Lives in: New York
SXSW survival product: Skinceuticals sunscreen - it’s really light and has the perfect amount of tint so it evens out your tone without having to wear makeup.

2. Piera Gelardi, Executive Creative Director & Co-Founder, Refinery29
@pieraluisa
Lives in: New York
Hear her at: Courageous Creativity: Dreaming and Doing

3. Whitney Wolfe, Founder & CEO, Bumble
@whitwolfe

SXSW must-have: I keep our new cozy Honey sweatshirt on me for when it's freezing inside buildings.

4. Amber Venz Box, Co-Founder, rewardStyle & LIKEtoKNOW.it
@venzedits
Lives in: Dallas
SXSW must-have: Amber keeps her hair looking perfectly styled and textured (on the go) with ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray.

5. Jen Rubio, Co-Founder, Away
@jennifer
Lives in: New York
SXSW travel necessity: You'll find Jen fashionably making her way into the ATX airport with her AWAY The Carry-On suitcase.

6. Jane Ko, Food Blogger
@atasteofkoko
Lives in: Austin
SXSW must-have: My J.Crew Leopard loafers - I will be running from event to event. The loafers are not only comfy but also stylish. Don't even try wearing heels during SXSW!

7. Tyler Haney, Founder & CEO, Outdoor Voices
@ty_haney
Lives in: Austin
Go-to: Cap Beauty Captivator Energizer Spray! I'm usually running from one thing to the next, and trying to fit in a little recreation in between. I spritz this on mid-day to keep refreshed, sparkly, and moisturized.

8. Kelly Krause, Conference Programming Manager, SXSW
@kelljokrause
Lives in: Austin
Must-have: Apple Smart Battery Case. I'm constantly on the go, taking calls and responding to texts, so being fully charged is a top priority. And, because outlets are a hot commodity, my phone is always equipped with this extra charger. 

9. Katrina Barber, Photographer/Designer, C3 Presents
@katrina.barber
Lives in: Austin
In her bag: My Fuji Instax Neo Classic. It lets me have a little more fun with film while out shooting on assignment. I love coming home with a wallet full of little snaps of my SXSW.

10. Jackie Lee Young, Photographer/Social Media Manager, Bunkhouse
@jackieleeyoung
Lives in: Austin
SXSW go-to: I call it my brain potion. Once in the morning, and put some in a plastic bag to mix with water during the day.
