20 Free Instagram Highlight Cover Icons

Instagram is one of my favorite platforms for marketing and branding and the Instagram Story Highlight feature is such a wonderful and cute addition! It’s very helpful for building a cohesive brand and gives new followers a chance to see some of your best "highlighted" content. If you don't have highlights set up set, I highly reccomend setting them up and adding some cute icons to each cover!

What Should I Highlight?

The stories you choose to highlight are completely up to you but I would suggest starting with top themes for your brand.

If you are a fashion blogger, I would suggest having a highlight for ootd, motd, hauls, favorite stores, online stores, dresses, shoes, bags, shop my closet, Etc! If you're a fitness blogger or influencer, I would suggest using icons like daily workouts, ab routines, leg day, shakes, motivational quotes, inspiration, recipes, meal plans etc! Highlight your most popular content in a clean and organized way.  

For me, my personal brand has many different themes ranging from fitness, to vegan food, to travel, to fashion to photography, to life at home with family. So I have several highlights and have extra icon covers ready to go if I add a new theme. 

I’ve created 20 beautiful Instagram story highlight cover icons so you don’t have to! These icons are two sets of 10, so you have two different themes to choose from.
