In a digital world where Instagram is king, keeping a well-manicured grid is now a basic skill that one must learn. Being VSCO-savvy is not enough. If you want to be on top of the instahoe hierarchy, then you gotta up your game by mastering the art of gramming. Below, the It accessories you need to be on your way to becoming the next Instagram star, as demonstrated by blogger Arisse de Santos.

Pineapples, anyone? Apart from being rich in vitamin C and dietary fiber, this tropical fruit also looks especially enticing on Instagram. Slices of watermelon, berries, and even avocados work well, too. Just be sure to eat everything when you’re done snapping those #foodstagrams.

Coconut water is best served in the shell! In case you haven’t noticed yet, it’s the sexy new beverage for healthy foodies. Plus, it makes the perfect prop at the beach. Throw in a pair of statement sunnies to your style equation and your #LaBoracay outfit is complete.

Flowers add flair to your flatlays, and these picturesque blossoms will also prove worthy as your #OOTD accessory. Even a stem of rose is enough to inject a dainty twist to your boyfriend jeans and shirt combo. Instagram stars approve!

It may be the age of Instagram, but the allure of Polaroids sure never gets old. Ditto for the Instax camera that will make a cute prop for both your flatlays and selfies.

Who said balloons are only for kids? You can’t put an age limit to a double-tap worthy IG snap, so sometimes you have to let out that little girl in you.
