We've decoded her scroll-stopping photos.

There's a lot to dig about Ida Anduyan's Instagram feed. With her calculated color palette and delectable athleisure wardrobe, she's got that cool girl aesthetic down to a T. 

Her OOTD pics definitely stand out, and it's not just because of her trendy carriers and eye-catching stompers. Her photos are well-composed and distraction-free, and a lot of that has to do with her effortlessly cool, confident poses. She doesn't worry too much about sitting pretty– she poses with her whole body and often positions herself in ways that remind us of the pilates classes we tried out at the beginning of quarantine. 

After studying Ida's feed, we came to the conclusion that the key to a good OOTD photo is to look like you've been caught mid-motion. That way, your pose won't look contrived or like you're trying way too hard. And, of course, there's no beating the power of a solid outfit, so make sure to never focus too hard on posing that you neglect the whole point of the OOTD in the first place.

Ready? Here, check out the 12 high-impact OOTD poses we're copying from Ida Anduyan: 

1. Show off your arm candy! Slightly prop up your bag and make sure to angle your shoulders nicely.

2. Ida jestingly called this her "Hey how are ya" stance. Posing doesn't have to be serious!

3. Sit on the stairs, cross your legs, and take an OOTD photo from a high angle.

4. Knees up! Curl up on a chair or on the floor and pull your legs to your chest. This one's a pretty unpretentious, subtle pose that'll allow you to show off your shoes (or socks!).

5. Not every OOTD photo has to be a full body pic. If you want to show off specific items (like a statement top or hat), don't hesitate to take a closeup. Cupping your hands around your face makes for a flattering, slimming look.

7. Almost every day is leg day with Ida–she seems to enjoy posing with one leg off the ground, doing something like a kick.

8. When in doubt, do the power stance. Plant your hands on your hips and exude attitude.

9. Sit on the edge of a bench, recline, and stretch out your legs. Super low-key, but it'll show off your whole outfit.

10. This is clearly one of Ida's favorite poses. Squat with your good side facing the camera. This is a creative way to show off your shoes and accessories!

11. Lean as if you'll be attempting to limbo, or as if you're about to tie your shoe. Either direction works. This pose highlights your bum and elongates your legs.
