Plants are so hot right now. They’re green, they look good, and they look even better as selfie companions. Along with the current trends on wellness and green-living, plants also add that extra something to any #OOTD or #selfie. There’s just something about these green living things that makes us smile. Here, we rounded up how some of our favorite celebs and influencers pose with some greenery.
1. Make plants your background.
As if she’s standing against a very pretty wallpaper, Nadine Lustre poses against a field of sunflowers as the background for her photo. What makes it so special? This photo is even better because the gorgeous plant backdrop is real.
2. Stand tall beside a very tall potted plant.
In this chic #OOTD, Heart Evangelista juxtaposes her petite frame against a large cactus. Here, the height of the plant actually makes the outfit photo extra interesting.
