How To Instagram Like A Fashion Blogger, Without Leaving Your Bed

The perfect #OOTD may look simple, but it requires finesse. To master the technique, you must account for lighting, angle, and locale. Of late, bloggers have been eschewing the typical standing shot in favor of a much cozier pose. Instead of seeking out the murals of Nolita or the most sunlit corner of the Jardin des Tuileries, they're capitalizing on the the comforts of home — of bed, to be more specific.
With optimal morning light, a clean backdrop, and a pose you feel comfortable in, you, too, can count yourself among the fashion crowd by simply taking an overhead shot of your look against carefully disheveled sheets. It's never been easier to show off skinny stiletto heels that, while begging to be photographed, are not so great to walk in. Ahead, see 10 (admittedly impractical) new outfits for bed.
