'Around the World in 80 Styles' is the name of an Instagram account that's focused on featuring diverse style portraits from everyday people from a vast variety of cultures.

Subjects range in age, income level and personal interests expansively -- offering viewers an insight that's much more inclusive and telling in comparison to the many other street fashion blogs that are online. Not only do the style portraits reveal each individual's unique flair, but it also showcases how differently people from other cultures express their sense of self.

As the project's photographers explained to Bored Panda, each image shows how each piece of clothing "keeps its distinctive features: the fabric, the design, the motif, the cut -- all these style elements portray a culture and how, for instance, it has been shaped throughout history by foreign influences."
