2. Angle delight: Try taking the picture on a slant for a quirky twist.

3. Game face: Switch up the facial expressions to add variety and show all sides to your personality.

4. Creative crop: Not all shots have to be full length. You could play around with close crops, to show off just a small detail on the outfit to add mystery and spice up your feed.

5. In the frame: It depends on the shop, but the frame and the type of mirror you are using will impact the shot you take. If the frame is fun, why not get that involved. You may need a friend to help you get the optimum angle!

6. Camera position: Hold your phone slightly above the level of your eyes. Shooting a selfie from a higher angle can make you appear taller and slimmer

7. Share the limelight: If you’re with friends, get them involved too! It’s fun and it mixes up your feed with new faces and other outfits.
