Oh, selfies. You’ve really found a legitimate way into our lives (AKA our feeds). #OOTDs have served up tons of style inspiration for years, and while you might be familiar with the OG fashion bloggers and their popular power poses, chances are you haven’t had the time to partake in the outfit media sharing. That’s why we’ve summed up five easy ways to master perfect #OOTD photos. Scroll on and find out how you can take super chic, incredibly stylish outfit snaps of your own! 1. Find Your Best Angle There’s a reason why models can get paid top dollar. Working the camera to elongate or shorten your frame and highlight your favorite features takes time and practice.

A portrait photograph is more than just the poster you have on your bedroom wall during adolescence (hello, James Dean!). It’s an intimate moment captured forever in a photograph, and to do it at the level of the Seligers and Leibovitzs of the world takes more than pointing and clicking your DSLR. A beautiful portrait is not easy to achieve, which is why we’ve compiled some of the best celebrity portraits ever taken by the most renowned photographers in the world. Scroll on, take notes, and get inspired for your next photo shoot! 1. Kate Moss by Mario Testino Kate Moss is already an icon, but when she is paired with photographer Mario Testino, her icon status extends outside the fashion world.

Whether Pantone has a special psychic ability to predict the next hottest color, or the self-proclaimed “color authority” starts the trend themselves (perhaps a bit of both?), there’s no denying their Color of the Year’s influence on just about everything. From fashion to interior design and all that falls in between, Pantone Colors of the Year determine what we see in every area of art and design — including photography. For the first time ever, we get two Pantone Colors of the Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity. The two candy-colored shades are meant to be the “antidote to modern day stresses,” representing mindfulness, well-being and gender blurring. We know, it’s a strangely political and philosophical decision on Pantone’s end, but it makes sense with the social trends. Plus, these powdery pastels do look damn good together (and surprisingly not tacky). Scroll on to see some of our favorite pink and blue photographs and find out why the world’s smitten with these peaceful hues!…

Keep scrolling, consult your wedding photographer and get the most beautiful photos for your big day! 1. Black and White Shots This one takes the cake as the classic wedding photography trend.

From the relaxed atmosphere to the bubbly, we gotta say — fashion week presentations are kind of the best. Thankfully, for those attending New York Fashion Week, presentations are becoming more prominent, saving less-known fashion designers serious dough and offering invitees respite from the crowds. And did we mention that the photography is far fresher and more fascinating? (The catwalk is nice and all, but the photography-minded in us are craving cool visuals.) Keep scrolling to swoon over all the inspiring — and, of course, super stylish — photos from NY Fashion Week’s Fall 2016 presentations! 1. Rachel Antonoff Working a desk job never looked this fun.
