Giraffing

How many times have you seen photos of yourself and thought "WHY did I smile like that?!" As we've all experienced, getting that ideal combination of a relaxed yet flattering pose can be so tough. Everyone wants to look their best in pictures, especially on the Fashioned app where others will be checking out your style. I wanted to share one of my favorite posing tricks that I use every time I post a snap: Giraffing. 

 Before

The first part of this trick is to clench your teeth- not tightly or strained, but just enough.



Then, you jut your head and neck out as if you were a giraffe reaching up for leaves. It looks ridiculous but this step is key. 


The next tip is to tilt your head down a bit to ensure the camera isn't shooting directly at your neck and chin.


Then, smile! 



It takes a little practice to get comfortable and of course there will be some pictures that are better than others, but the angles will be in your favor!!
