Alexa Ilacad has been obsessed with flaunting her swimsuit OOTDs these days. As much as we love her *beach babe* style, we can't help but be drawn to how she poses as well! Having been in the industry for more than a decade now, this Gen Z star knows how to carry herself confidently *and* comfortably in front of the camera.

If you want to up your IG game à la Alexa, breeze through seven of her best swimsuit poses below:

1. Too shy to show your legs? Just stay in the water and perch your arm by the poolside. Great for sultry and sweet girls alike!

2. Show off your newest swimsuit by kneeling down and resting your hands on your hips. Like Alexa, look away from the camera for that ~candid~ effect.

3. If you don't know what to do with your hands, consider splashing around and playing with the water. Super cute and youthful!

4. Lie down on a sun lounger and shield your gaze from the harsh sun. This is the perfect pose for petite girls who want to appear taller.

5. A wide low-angle shot is another angle that can create the illusion of height. Bonus points if you have a scenic background!

6. For a non-awkward standing pose, put one leg forward and keep your weight on your back leg. Don't forget to move your shoulders back for a confident stance.

7. As Alexa demonstrates, a swimsuit looks best with glowing, dewy skin. To enhance your sun-kissed tan, take a close-up photo during golden hour!

8. Staying seated is a good option if you want to evoke that chill, cool-girl aura. Similar to Alexa, opt for a high-angle shot that puts your cute OOTD on display!
