Because no one wants to look awkward.

Some people are naturally adept at taking photos and posing for the camera. But for most people, it can get awkward especially when you don’t know what to do with your hands. One can place their arms akimbo only so many times until it looks like an unintentional signature pose on your Instagram feed. Here we illustrate options for your next Insta-pose.

1. Rest your chin on your palm.

Easy, effortless, and all you need is a sturdy surface to place your elbow on.

2. Cheers to that.

Whether you’re sipping on some champagne or drinking your morning java, just raise your glass to the camera.

3. Double cross ‘em.

Do you find yourself crossing your hands on your knees once you sit down? If it feels natural, it’ll look a lot less pose-y.

4. Read up.

Pick up your latest read—a book, magazine, even your hotel catalogue—and, well, read it.

5. Your hair, it’s everywhere.

Play around with your hair. Shake it up, tuck it behind your ear, or muss up your bangs.

6. Look like you mean it.

Peer from your sunnies or specs, and flash your sweetest smile.

Apart from shielding your eyes from the sun, use this pose for when you’re at the beach or by the pool.
