The OOTD selfie is probably the most taken selfie on Instagram. Sharing a picture of your outfit on social is the solution when your outfit is absolutely stunning and you feel like not enough people have seen it. But taking a good outfit picture is harder than it seems and not because taking an OOTD picture is now generally accepted, all pictures that we take should be automatically shared on the WWW!
But some Instagram Fashionistas are naturals in taking the perfect OOTD picture. Watch and learn from these professionals!
USE A ‘REAL LIFE’ SETTING AS A BACKGROUND
People love to peek in other people’s lives, so while capturing your amazing outfit, show them a little bit of your lifestyle. Sweden’s biggest fashion blogger Kenza is a girl who always has the most amazing ‘real-life’ backgrounds taken all over the world.
LET SOMEONE ELSE TAKE THE PICTURE AND TRY DIFFERENT POSES
Find your best angle and try different poses. Make sure you do not overpose and keep is natural and comfortable for yourself. No more one-armed OOTD selfies and let go of the duck-face please!
STYLE YOUR OUTFIT IN DIFFERENT WAYS
1 picture, same item in 3 different outfits, people love this! You can use this when you have to wear multiple outfits a day but have 1 signature item that remains the same or just when you want to show off your new statement piece in different ways.
TAKE IT FROM THE TOP
A picture from the top is especially good when you need a good angle to show your bottom outfit part. These Stan Smith Sneakers ($75) are an Instagram favorite. Hold the camera under your chin and try different poses with your lower body parts.
Don’t forget to capture your accessories in an outfit picture. It is okay to just have a picture of your perfectly manicured nails and gorgeous jewelry, girls love that! Watch Larsson & Jennings.
WAIST DOWN PICTURE
This pose, by the fabulous Chiara, is especially perfect when you are at the airport and your accessories, suitcase and outfit are flawless. Passport and boarding pass in one hand, Chanel bag in the other, and the perfect OOTD picture can be taken!
