If you ever feel awkward in front of the camera – don’t worry, you’re not alone. For many of us, taking a good picture while showing off an outfit has become a struggle.

Whether you want to start a career as a fashion blogger or you’re simply trying to nail the perfect shot, mastering the art of striking a pose has become an Instagram need-to-know. And who better to teach you these things than bloggers, the #OOTD veterans!


When it comes to photos, these stylish ladies sure have a similar pattern of poses which may just be the secret to getting those thousands of double-taps.

Distinct poses translate differently to various outfits, either highlighting a look, perfecting the angles or complimenting a background. For structured outfits, an elongated stride is perfect to show off the length, while a casual laid-back pose will allow colours pop!

If you’re a beginner in the world of outfit photo ops, you’re in luck. Below, we’ve gathered 10 blogger approved poses that will totally showcase both you and your outfit.

PS: there’s no shame in practising in front of the mirror.
