How To Instagram Like The Kardashian-Jenner Family Without Being Rich
Proof that you don't need £350 million in the bank to nail a consistent aesthetic.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan never put a foot wrong when it comes to maintaining their social-media feeds. Who could forget the glow-up Kim Kardashian’s Instagram went through when she decided to strip back her aesthetic from garish to casually cool?
While we don’t all have a digital team at hand to help select the best filter and dream up a hilarious caption, there are some small improvements we can all make that don’t involve shelling out £10,000 on a YSL bag and booking a holiday to Paris purely for the gram.
Let's get checking out a bunch of times Kylie Jenner proved she was the Queen of selfies...
1. Stop worrying about your angles and nail a totally spontaneous shot
Even if you don’t have the bone structure of Kendall Jenner, keep in mind that nothing does quite so well on social-media as images of people having genuine fun.
2. Carefully splay out all your most cherished items on a table
Are you even an influencer if you don’t post an obligatory shot of your glass coffee cup resting on a glossy magazine?
3. Introduce an outlandish accessory
With pretty much everyone on your feed posing in the exact same position to show off their outfit, go against the grain and add the totally wild accessory of thigh-high boots or a comically oversized coat.
4. Keep a well-stocked library of vintage images for TBT and FBFs
Optimise the amount of likes you’re going to get by saving up the most sentimental images for birthdays, anniversaries, and special occasions.
5. Remember that every street is your runway
You don’t need an invite to the Met Gala to pull on your finest clothes and earn 50+ likes on a candid shot. Do a Kourtney and head to a bookstore in the kind of outfit that is guaranteed to turn heads.
6. Don’t be afraid to go off brand
If the Kardashians have taught us anything, it’s that you *can* post something quirky and adorable in between all those NSFW nudes.
7. Remember the power of a group shot
Try and take more pictures when you’re at group events, even if those group events don’t involve hiring a yacht off the south coast of France with your supermodel pals.
8. If possible, ensure that your outfits compliment each other
We’re not saying you *have* to take a shot of your extended family in matching bathrobes, but we can guarantee it would make an impact on your feed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
9. Turn the camera on other people
Newsflash: it’s not all about you. If your Instagram is a shrine to all the things you love most in this world, it makes sense that candid shots of your BFF should make the cut.
10. Enlist the help of an animal or a cute child
There’s a reason your most successful uploads to date have included your photogenic pup. The Kardashian-Jenner clan know that the cute factor plays a major part in how many double-taps they’re going to get.
Maybe try hanging out with your niece for once? Sorted.
