Guide To Looking Trendy On Social Media

There is no denying that we are now a culture centered around social media. We post pictures, statuses, even just check-in so all of our followers know exactly what we're doing because God forbid all of my Facebook friends didn't know I was eating dinner at (insert any restaurant). With that being said, social media makes it so easy to look like the coolest person alive without being remotely cool at all (believe me, I would know). So, sit back, relax and pay attention to this crash course on how to appear to be one of the trendiest people to walk the face of this planet.

1. "Pics of it or it didn't happen."

This is not only a lifestyle, but a philosophy. Takes pictures of everything you do, every person you are with, and every place you go. The more pictures in your camera roll the more options to choose from for your perfect post.

2. Have a go-to editing app.

Come on, we will all admit edit the crap out of our pictures, sometimes. Whether you use Afterlight, Snapseed or VSCO, everyone manages to find that filter that manages to somehow make them look perfectly tan while simultaneously making their teeth look pearly white.

3. Think of a clever caption.

The caption on a post is a pretty serious part. Your avid followers have to know that you are witty, funny and relate-able without making it seem like you try too hard. Some time and thought definitely need to go into this. Or, perhaps you are one of those people who store that perfectly crafted caption in your back pocket and simply wait for the right picture to post with it.

4. Always take pictures of your food.

Sure, you make look like a derpy, basic girl in the midst of a food-o-shoot (haha see what I did there?), but trendy like posting your super cool and healthy acai bowl, or your super trendy green matcha tea. Not only will people think you are trendy, they will also think you are so healthy. Joke's on them though because they'll never know if you also go to the Wendy's drive thru for some chicken nuggets. Am I right?

5. Have the perfect balance of things, people and places

Nothing is better than an aesthetically pleasing Instagram grid that showcases that you appreciate nature but also know how to go our and have a good time with friends. Make sure you work in some sunsets, landscapes, pictures of your coffee, pics with pals and, of course, a few throwbacks.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)
