If you’re trying to establish a banger Instagram account— then look no further than this post (and maybe a few celeb Insta accounts). They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so we’re looking to the verified kings and queens of IG for more help.
1. At the cottage
This is a summer essential. Before the next long weekend, do a quick search and find yourself a pool float, hopefully one like Kendall’s super cute flamingo. If possible get a suit to match and some kind of statement hat (transparent visor and floppy hat come highly recommended). This post will keep the likes coming in and perhaps even a “can I be you?” comment.
2. Casual lean on location
Okay, this one is kind of a gift. There’s no need to even drop a location tag with this photo (although there are extra points for that). Although Joe Jonas is bougie and in Italy, still explore your own city, choose between a rustic or vibrant wall or doorway and lean. A slight lean and an uninterested stare into the distance will give you that naturally cool appearance.
3. Garden party with your bezzieeee
Round up your friends, siblings, cousins or complete strangers on the street (aka your besties) and get classy. This photo is all about getting the saturation up so the colours can POP. Best location for this would be at a botanical garden or your own backyard. Channel your inner Gaia Mother Earth like Vanessa Hudgens and enchant your feed with this recreation.
3. Strike a pose on the balcony
This is truly Rih in her element. Prepare to get very extra with this shot. This recreation comes after some practice behind the camera. Timing is also very important here as we need that glow from the afternoon sun to be jusssttt right. For this shot, find all the costume jewelry you have available and some kind of material that drapes.
4. Get dramatic in the Uber
We have all looked out a car window , perhaps when it’s raining, and the music (probably a selena song too tbh) is just mellow enough to pretend that we are in a sad movie. That exact situation is perfect for the vision of this photo. Get a friend (or the Uber driver) to get a photo from the front seat while you channel some emotional vibes. Don’t forget a black and white filter for effect. 5 STARS.
5. Go play sports, but do it for the ‘gram
Get you a friend like Kylie Jenner who will style you and then go IN on a photo. Being active is great but getting photos on location is better. For this one, the goal is contrast. If you can source an outfit that comes as a pair, you’re “set”.
6. Get high, look fly
This is the simple photo to class up your feed. Get high up. There’s something about rooftops that bring out everyone’s inner classy. At this point, maybe your feed will be filled with photos of yourself (looking great if you’ve followed this guide) so switching it up with some architecture in the background will refresh your theme.
Recreating this one is the most low key way to turn up the cool for your feed. First, master a nice parallel park. Next, get a friend to stand in the middle of the road. Third pout your lips and stare at the camera with a “I made it” sparkle in your eye. Fourth, put on your favorite OVO tune. And remember the B&W filter for effect once again.
8. Post up in a parking spot
This post requires a friend who’s ready to go the extra mile for you. But trust us it’s worth it. It’s also very important to have an all white outfit.
