The famous lot may have an advantage when it comes to lush holiday locations, profesh photographers and makeup artists powdering their shiny inforeheads in between snaps, but that shouldn’t stop us from having a go at recreating them.
Who knows, becoming Insta famous could be our calling... OR we’ll just go back to posting daily Snapchats of our dogs. Whatever.
1. The Mirror Swimwear Selfie
How better to show off your brand new cossie (and how proud you are that you’ve got tanlines) than a sassy mirror selfie? This one’s a Kardashian fave (and they are the social media queens so you should probably take note).
2. The Pool Float Pose
While the rest of us are flailing around in the pool trying to stay afloat, the celebs are looking sexy af posing on all sorts of mystical inflatable creatures. Seriously, how do you even balance on one of those things?!
3. The Bambi
Surely the swimwear pose of the summer, Bambi-ing literally involves sitting like a cute, little deer, with your legs folded underneath your thighs. It supposedly creates the illusion of thicker thighs and a narrower waist, if that's the look you're going for.
4. The Fish-Out-Of-Water Pose
It’s all about emerging from the water in the most mermaid-esque way possible, as if you were actually Ariel in another life. Those Baywatch gals ain’t got nothing on you (but no slow-mo running round the pool though please, we don’t want any injuries).
5. The 'I'm On A Boat' Snap
This one’s easy, all you need to do is buy an expensive yacht and hire your own bartender to serve you cocktails all day. Ok FINE, we're more likely to be posing in an inflatable dingy with a can of beer. Celebs have way better holidays than us. Sigh.
6. The Insta Sit
Loved by bloggers from around the world, the Insta Sit basically looks like a more elegant version of man spreading. The whole ‘fold one leg in towards the inner thigh of your other’ thing looks slightly uncomfortable, but it's supposed to make even the shortest of limbs look super leggy, so who’s complaining?
7. The Beach Bum
We’re so grateful for the celebs blessing our timelines with bootylicious belfies, which are basically photos that not so subtly draw all attention to their derrière. We say go for it, beach bums!
8. The #SquadGoals Shots
Summer basically didn’t happen if you don’t get the ultimate #SquadGoals snap, so round up your mates and get posing. Our advice? Take a leaf out of Taylor Swift’s book. She knows a thing or two about girl squads.
9. The Makeup Free Sunkissed Selfie
There’s nothing like that summer feeling when you get the sunkissed glow and cute freckles and you just want to parade your au naturale face around. Less is definitely more.
10. The Boomerang
You know you’ve nailed the perfect Boomerang when you can’t help but sit there and watch it over and over again like some hypnotised weirdo. Our pro tip? Just look like you're having a great time while waving your arms around and you really can't go wrong.
