12 Ways to Spot a Fashion Blogger on Instagram (Part One)

  1. 1. There’s a formula to the life of a successful fashion blogger on Instagram and it all comes down to 12 signature photos. Perfect these shots, scatter them throughout your feed, and you’ll be an Instagram fashion star before you know it.
  2. 2. In an effort to truly get inside the mind of a powerful fashion blogger on Instagram, we set our copywriter JV (aka @16tacos) a mission to recreate each of the 12 signature poses - for better or for worse. NB: Subtlety is not his strong point.
  3. 3. #THETRAVELLINGICECREAMCONE The travelling ice cream cone has been spotted from the gritty pavements of New York and Venice Beach, right through to the cobblestoned streets of Paris and the crystal- clear waters in the Caribbean. Because nothing says you’ve made it like a double scoop of your favourite flavour in an exotic land. Made famous by: Julie Sariñana from Sincerely Jules. Location: Your hand. Mandatory: Getting your expensive watch and jewellery in shot. 01
  4. 4. #THETRAVELLINGICECREAMCONE Blogger: @sincerelyjules Combining the purity of the old-school soft serve with an edgy black and white filter. Genius. Blogger: @songofstyle Looking like a boss with an arm full of Cartier bling and a scoop of vanilla choc-chip the size of your face. Blogger: @songofstyle No comment...
  5. 5. #THETRAVELLINGICECREAMCONE
  6. 6. #THECARRIEBRADSHAW When you’re in the fashion capital of the world, every moment is a potential Instagram shoot, but none more so than the balcony of your hotel room. Made famous by a Sex And The City episode where Carrie checks into the luxurious Hôtel Plaza Athénée, the Parisian balcony scene is a right of passage for any aspiring fashion blogger. Made famous by: Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Girl. Location: A Parisian balcony. Mandatory: Your fashion face. 02
  7. 7. #THECARRIEBRADSHAW Blogger: @garypeppergirl There’s no such thing as too much sun flare when the Eiffel Tower is in the background. Blogger: @thehautepursuit Just because you’re confined to a square, doesn’t mean you can’t execute it like a full-fledged magazine shoot. Blogger: @oraclefoxblog You know it’s serious fashion business when it involves the ‘jacket cape’.
  8. 8. #THECARRIEBRADSHAW
  9. 9. #TIMECHECK The ‘time check’ shot is a must for any fashion blogger. Not only can you shoot it yourself, you can also feature your jewellery and manicure alongside your timepiece. Plus, if you frame it right there’s an opportunity to capture your entire outfit. Because you can never have too many designer pieces in the one shot. Made famous by: Unknown. Location: Your wrist. Mandatory: A manicure. 03
  10. 10. #TIMECHECK Blogger: @margaret__zhang Two watches, leopard print, snakeskin print and geometric patterned shoes are best left to the experts. Blogger: @rumineely Respect for any blogger who can take a photo with no hands. Blogger: @dmarge Combine your timepiece with your love of Monocle magazine.
  11. 11. #TIMECHECK
  12. 12. #LIFETHROUGHTHELENS You’ve already posted three photos in a row that show your face, but you just got a new pair of designer sunglasses and you want your followers to know. Enter the ‘life through the lens shot’. Master this shot and you’ll be able to keep your mystique of rarely showing your face, and never making direct eye contact with the camera. Made famous by: Unknown. Location: Your perspective. Mandatory: Expensive sunglasses. 04
  13. 13. #LIFETHROUGHTHELENS Blogger: @oraclefoxblog Just you, New York City and your tortoise shell half-rims. Blogger: @oraclefoxblog Show low tide who is boss and make your own ocean with blue-tinted shades. Blogger: @songofstyle A great example of the ‘rule of thirds’ and what $10K worth of wrist swag looks like.
  14. 14. #LIFETHROUGHTHELENS
  15. 15. #LOVEFINGERS Sometimes you feel so much love for a moment it’s not enough to just hashtag it with #love. That’s where ‘love fingers’ comes in. Whether it’s beautiful architecture, a street sign that resonates deep or a sunset you just can’t put into words, this is your go-to shot. Getting the heart shape right is crucial, so practice in the mirror at home first. You’ll also need a photographer partner to take this shot for you. Made famous by: Unknown. Location: Wherever you feel the love. Mandatory: The enthusiasm of a child. 05
  16. 16. #LOVEFINGERS Blogger: @songofstyle Double loving. Blogger: @tuulavintage Paris loving. Blogger: @manrepeller Event promotion loving.
  17. 17. #LOVEFINGERS
  18. 18. #FEETNFLOWERS Flower stall owners all over the world must be perplexed at the sudden influx of well-heeled fashionistas pretending to peruse the foliage only to take a photo of their feet and then leave. It’s a great way to add a bit of colour into your Instagram feed while showing off your designer footwear. Made famous by: Julie Sariñana from Sincerely Jules. Location: A flower market. Mandatory: A pedicure. 06
  19. 19. #FEETNFLOWERS Blogger: @sincerelyjules Impress your followers with an exact colour match between the flowers and your shoes. Blogger: @oraclefoxblog Give your home country some love and highlight your Australian base using natives. Blogger: @songofstyle Play around with composition and nail a shot that’s shaped like a giant bunch of flowers.
  20. 20. #FEETNFLOWERS
  21. 21. #FEETNTILES You’ve exhausted the flower markets in your neighbourhood, but you still have shoes to shoot. Enter ‘feet n’ tiles’- a cleaner, more graphic version of the floral shots you love. Bloggers who love this shot will have Morocco at the top of their bucket list. Made famous by: Julie Sariñana from Sincerely Jules. Location: The floor. Mandatory: Shit hot shoes. 07
  22. 22. #FEETNTILES Blogger: @sincerelyjules A classic shot wearing the summer shoe of the moment, the Chanel espadrilles. Blogger: @songofstyle Knock off two trends in the one shot – metallics and slides. Blogger: @tuulavintage Demonstrating why walking over tiles in Morocco without taking a photo is pretty much impossible.
  23. 23. #FEETNTILES
  24. 24. #FASHIONFOODIEFLATLAY Food has been having its moment for a while now, but never has it been so fashionable until now. Fashion bloggers have realised that delicious food and designer accessories are powerful combo on Instagram. The goal for this shot is to capture your personal style in a meal. Made famous by: Margaret Zhang from Shine By Three. Location: A table or bench. Mandatory: Designer sunglasses. 08
  25. 25. #FASHIONFOODIEFLATLAY Blogger: @margaret__zhang You know your styling has reached next level when you can make an avocado look at home sharing the scene with Louis Vuitton. Blogger: @sincerelyjules When you’re wearing Chanel espadrilles, you’ll find a way to get them in shot. Blogger: @songofstyle It’s a good day when your accessories outnumber your beverages.
  26. 26. #FASHIONFOODIEFLATLAY
  27. 27. #AERIALBEDLEGS It’s nice to show your followers a behind-the-scenes look at your personal home life. This shot has become popular on Instagram feeds not just because it can incorporate multiple themes (work life, fashion life, home life), but also for it’s mysterious nature. Who took the photo? Did they use a selfie stick? Why are they in bed at 2pm in the afternoon? So many questions. Made famous by: Amanda Shadforth from Oracle Fox. Location: Your bed. Mandatory: Unmade white sheets. 09
  28. 28. #AERIALBEDLEGS Blogger: @oraclefoxblog Taking a photo of yourself in bed looking at a photo of someone else in bed. Gold. Blogger: @brooketestoni The question is not why do you have accessories monogrammed with your initials in bed with you, it’s why wouldn’t you? Blogger: @sincerelyjules A great alternative to the ‘fashion foodie flat lay’ for those with tanned and toned pins.

  30. 30. #IMKINGOFTHEWORLD You don’t have to be on the front of a massive cruise liner like Leo in the film Titanic to give this shot a whirl. At first glance it’s a legitimate tourist snap, but look a little closer though and you’ll notice the carefully styled outfit and perfectly tousled hair. The best thing about this shot is that you don’t need a photographer or travel buddy to capture it – set it up and any passing tourist can snap off a shot or 20. Peace fingers optional. Made famous by: Jessica Stein from Tuula Vintage. Location: Where there is an epic view. Mandatory: Arms must be a T to V shape – no lower, no higher. 10
  31. 31. #IMKINGOFTHEWORLD Blogger: @tuulavintage All the ingredients with lush mountains, azure ocean and a super cute summer dress. Blogger: @songofstyle Peace fingers on a camel – enough said. Blogger: @thisislandlife Risk getting swept off the rocks for the perfect shot because #yolo
  32. 32. #IMKINGOFTHEWORLD
  33. 33. #HAVEPASSPORTWILLTRAVEL There are a bunch of great shots you can get at the airport, but none as simple and effective as the ‘have passport, will travel’. Similar to the ‘time check’, this shot allows you to capture your well-travelled passport, business class tickets, designer passport wallet and your even more expensive carry-on. Made famous by: Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad. Location: The First Class Lounge or your massive reclining seat. Mandatory: A Louis Vuitton passport wallet and showing as many pieces of designer luggage as possible. 11
  34. 34. #HAVEPASSPORTWILLTRAVEL Blogger: @chiaraferrangni Multiple levels of monogram. Blogger: @sincerelyjules Just a casual Louis Vuitton on your lap. Blogger: @chiaraferrangni Take it next level and get a map of the world tattooed on your wrist.
  35. 35. #HAVEPASSPORTWILLTRAVEL
  36. 36. #THISPJLIFE No we’re not talking about pyjamas, we’re talking about private jets (PJs). Because why would you fly first or business class when you can fly private. With bloggers reaching celebrity-like status and fashion designers chartering private jets to fly them to events, expect to see a whole lot more of this going on in your Instagram feed. Made famous by: #richkidsofinstagram Location: The tarmac or your massive leather seat. Mandatory: Looking like its no big deal. 12
  37. 37. #THISPJLIFE Blogger: @tuulavintage Make boarding a private jet look like you’re in a Michael Kors ad. Blogger: @oraclefoxblog The perfect location for self-reflection. Blogger: @tuulavintage Combining a ‘time check’ and ‘this PJ life’ mid-flight.
