I’ve been on an Instagram hiatus for about three months now, and while it was nice to have a break from social media, I am ready to get back in the game. Upon my first scroll in what felt like forever, I noticed a whole new slew of trends — #squadgoals is the new selfie, the more elaborate the pool floatie the better, and donut pics are a must! While I don’t usually post something because it’s trending, I do think it’s imperative — for the sake of my Instagram comeback — to keep up with the trends. So, in anticipation of my first Instagram post following my social media vacation, I came up with a guide for how to Instagram like a fashion blogger. Simply scroll down to see 13 inspiring posts from some of my favorite bloggers, and if you, like me, need an update on photo filtering apps — I missed a lot these last 3 months — click here.
1. POUTY PICS — Because posing for photos is so passé.
2. DOOR POSES — Fashion girls like posting pictures of doors just as much as they like taking photos of flowers and ice cream. #adoorable
3. SHOES ON THE HORIZON — Instead of showing off your fabulous shoes and the tile beneath them, why not show off your fabulous shoes and your amazing view?
4. OVER THE SHOULDER — This casual pose is perfect for highlighting long gowns and backless dresses.
5. OUTFIT CROPS — Neck scarves, oversized glasses, a western belt — whatever you fancy, show it off with a nice square crop!
6. BEACH ESSENTIALS — Books, hats, and super cute beach towels are all welcome in these summery posts.
7. NAP SNAPS — Whether you want to show off your cute PJs or a take a bed head selfie, nap time pics are a new blogger must!
8. PICS OF PICS — Because the originals are much cooler than a picstitch collage.
9. #SQUADGOALS — Invite your friends to join in the fun!
10. VACAY PICS — Being a tourist is cool, just don’t look like one.
11. SWEET TREATS — Macarons, ice cream, donuts — you name it, they take pics of it!
