Here’s the thing, you are allowed to take time with your Instagram and social media posts and it doesn’t automatically make you a shallow, superficial person! We all want to look our best in the photos that we choose to share with the world, so a couple of handy tips here and there are always appreciated. When it comes to looking on fleek for the Gram, nobody does it better than the likes of Kim Kardashian and the rest of the celebrity squad. Here is how to pose like a celebrity for your IG pictures.
1. The Side Kick
This is a classic pose that all the cute girls do for their Insta. All you have to do is cross one leg in front of the other whilst standing, and it immediately adds a new dimension to the picture, and also helps to elongate the look of your legs.
2. Double down
This is a real power bitch pose. It’s all about planting your self on the ground with your feet shoulder width apart, and then putting both of your hands on your hips to show that you are confident, independent, sassy woman who knows she looks damn good!
3. The Tendu
A favourite of Taylor Swift, this one basically requires you to stand as if you were just starting a ballet class, with one foot in front of the other one pointing forward. Add a hand to your hip for extra sass.
4. The Point and Stretch
This involves shifting all of your weight to one side, but instead of rocking out a severe hip pop, you point your toe out as far as it will go in the opposite direction. It’s a very model-esque, interesting asymmetrical pose.
5. Coy Cutie
You can make your photos pop by doing the absolute opposite of anything showy. Simply stand with your arms by your sides and your feet almost touching. The cuteness and minimalism of the pose will make your face and fashion stand out even more.
6. The Curvature
If you pose from the side for a photo, it gives you much more opportunity to show off your curves. This is the perfect pose if you are wearing tight fitted clothing!
7. The Lean Back
If you have ever seen any social media post by Victoria Beckham, you will be more than familiar with the lean back. It’s a sort of casual slough back of the shoulders, bringing your hips forwards and elongating your torso as much as possible.
8. Demure Duo
Take a leaf out of the Olsen twins’ book and post with a bestie. The more serious you can make your faces look, the better it will turn out. There is something quite haunting about Mary Kate and Ashley’s group pics, but there’s no denying that they are high fashion!
