  1. Take a Walk

Not sure what pose to do? Walk towards or to the side of the camera to elongate your body and overall, get a thinner frame.

  1. Lean

Go ahead and lean on a wall, door or post, plus points if it has interesting graffiti or color to compliment your look.

  1. Look Back

Walk in front and look over your shoulder, this pose is great for highlighting a detail on the back of your outfit but it's also a casual, fun angle to mix into your feed.

  1. Frame Your Face

Hands can be awkward, so play around until you get a good angle because they can definitely help to frame your face. Use it to add a more feminine vibe to your picture.

  1. Accessories Matter

Take note of what you're wearing, grab hold of your skirt, and tilt your hat. Got shades on? Tip them down and peek through. Hold your handbag like a clutch and hang your blazer over the shoulder.

  1. Take a Seat

Leave the busy streets and use some stairs or a chair to relax on. This pose is best captured to the side rather than the front that makes you look stouter.   

  1. Midstep

A cross between a jump and a step, go back and forth on one leg to get the right timing. Spread out arms naturally like you would a normal walk to appear more dynamic.

  1. Turn Around

Another lively shot, try this with a flowy skirt.

  1. Cross-legged

Simply cross one leg over the other. Add this little trick whether you’re sitting, standing or leaning to get a more relaxed vibe.

  1. Cup of Jo

Your drink can be a good accessory to battle awkward hands. Hold the cup or sip some tea. It can set the ambiance and setting of your picture.

  1. Leg Extension

Extend one foot to its tip toes! Combine this with a lower angle and immediately look taller.

  1. Lie Down

Think textures like soft plush pillows or a grassy terrain, a bed of roses maybe?

  1. Side-to-Side

An instant way to look slimmer, get a shot from your side.

  1. Car Ride

Before getting off your ride, snap some pics and extend out a leg or go lounge in the seat. The car's enclosed space makes you the center of attention. 

  1. Look Away

You'll see a lot of bloggers who don't take a shot straight on, your stare into the distance can add some drama to your look and somehow the outfit also gets better appreciated.
