Guide to Washington DC’s Top “Micro” Influencers

top micro influencer in washington dc

So, I left NYFW with many ideas and so much motivation to get things going in DC. As stores open here and brands look for people to work with, I decided a guide to washington DC top influencers would certainly help out. When I write top influencers, I am in fact speaking on certain things.

  1. An influencer under 25k in instagram following
  2. An influencer with great engagement
  3. An influencer with high quality photos
  4. An influencer who does not get enough exposure although content is phenomenal
  5. An influencer with a blog site that has recent posts

I also want to highlight by Washington DC, I have included Virginia and Maryland (not baltimore) based influencers. It’s come to my attention that the same influencers are often used in campaigns here and it’s time to show the world that DC has a plethora of superb content creators to work with outside of the usual. (The usual are great but let’s shake things up)

To create this list, I first went through and found those I routinely visit their feed to see the latest and greatest and then I asked some of the top content creators in this area who they consider the top “micro” influencers. These DC top influencers I asked are people with over 50k following, who post consistently and have high engagement. High engagement is very important to me because it not only shows that the content is superb but that these bloggers are actually influencing others and relating to them.

New instagram algorithm or not, certain follower counts should see a decent amount of likes and if they do not,I feel as if something is not right. And by not right, I do not mean buying followers but that they really aren’t putting alot of effort into relating with their audience and have not built a strong, loyal following.

And if you are a brand looking for influencer marketing, don’t you want those who have built trust with their followers? Trust means their audience is far more likely to purchase or try out what they are marketing!

Before I release this list, I also want to highlight that I will be doing this for stylists, vintage and thrift store owners, and makeup artists as well. I may even expand it for photographers in the area. But for now- lets focus on micro fashion influencers in washington dc. I am keeping it pretty short for now but want to add to it as more people come into the industry. If I missed someone and you think they are fabulous, please leave it in the comments or email me and I will certainly take a look. I want this to be a great list filled with amazing talent!

The industry is saturated and it is often hard to find some great folks to work with and I hope that I can shine light on those who are kicking butt and taking names!

    This is such a phenomenal resource, Jen. With studies proving that big influencers aren’t bringing the ROI, the microinfluencer is even more valuable. Thank you for including me!
