Instagram has become increasingly popular in recent years, allowing users to express themselves through photographs and short videos. Clothing features prominently on this social media site; it is chock full of style inspiration. You can use Instagram for either personal or professional reasons, but no matter why you log on, it is important to upload amazing images if you want to get maximum exposure. How do you do that? Read on for a few tips.

1. Focus On Accessories

Some men don't want to take a full body picture, but they want to feature several elements of their style at once. Accessories can help here. So, what can you do? Take a picture of your shoes and wrist! The cool thing about this type of image is that you get a little bit of the environment in the picture as well. Consider adding a filter to truly create a unique photograph that you can upload.

2. Keep It Simple

Instead of taking a selfie, lower your camera and take a picture of your chest. This is the area of the body that many people are interested it (second only to your face). It is a great shot because it doesn't require a lot of effort on your part, and you can show off your clothing as well as accessories (for example, your tie).

3. Just Snap The Clothes

Some men don't like selfies, but that doesn't mean you have to avoid posting on Instagram. Take an outfit grid picture instead. This image simply shows the clothes you are going to wear. Arrange each piece of your outfit into a rectangle or square. Elevate your camera so you are shooting down, allowing users to really get a good look at your clothing.

4. Create A Collage

This tip is for those that are familiar with Instagram and Internet tools as a whole. You want to take a closeup of each element of your outfit. Then, take each individual picture and put it into a collage.

There are a lot of ways that you can highlight your style on Instagram. Use the tips mentioned above to help you. In addition, keep your account current so that you continue to work on your style each day.

5. Instagram

You want to make the most of Instagram if you’re a blogger and posting to it can be a big help. Companies such as Vibbi make it easy to purchase followers initially and kick start their profile. This can be a big help.
