7 Instagram Poses You See Every Single Time You Scroll Through Your Feed
If you’re on Instagram as much as we are, you start noticing that for the big hitters, there’s basically a formula to the perfect post. This outfit + this pose + this editing + this caption = a million likes.
Here are some of the ‘in’ poses we’ve identified. Fair warning: Once you get to know them, you’ll start seeing them everywhere.
The ‘Forgot My Glasses’
Favoured by: Bella Hadid
You know how you tug on the side of your eye when you don’t have your glasses on and need to focus? All the Insta Gals are doing that, because it gives you super feline eyes and an instant facelift. I tried it on myself and was momentarily stunned by my own beauty. Really, it’s weird.
The ‘Forgot How To Put On A Jacket’
Favoured by: Ariana Grande, Kylie Jenner
Not so common now in the summer months, but for a time no one could put on a jacket. Super concerning. They’d be halfway there, then forget how to get the garment over their shoulders. It’s a wonder they didn’t freeze.
The ‘Lo, My Ass’
Favoured by: All the Kardashian/Jenners, all fitness models
There is only one thing you’re supposed to be looking at in this photo, and that is The Ass. It’s not even slightly subtle. It’s just All Ass, All The Time.
Favoured by: Instagram ‘baddies’
This pose is not for Instagram newbies. It involves strength of thigh and pertness of bum, something mere mortals are often not gifted with.
And it’s hard on the old knees. The infamous ‘woman squinting’ meme is actually a photo of someone massaging their legs after squatting for a photo. I’m not joking! Instagram is a sport.
The Barbie Feet
Favoured by: The Kardashians
Like the ‘Forgot My Glasses’ pose is about refining your facial features, this is all about making your legs look longer and leaner and your feet more elfin and delicate. All the fun of sky-high heels, but you’re barefoot! You know, because we all love walking on the balls of our feet all the time.
The Casual Stride
A summer wardrobe just isn’t complete without a denim skirt. And remember these @stevemadden sliders from last year? So happy to be wearing them again. Today’s video is a summer haul, so if you wanna see what else I bought PLUS some commentary from my mate @dressedbydebs then check the link in my stories!

The best way to show off your new nails and makeup. And there are plenty of options! You can claw at your hair or chest, or even your lips and teeth. The more you look like a T-Rex, the better.
