We have a news flash for you—there is a difference between runway trends and Instagram trends, and today, we are going to tell you every Instagram trend you need to know about as we quickly enter summer 2017. It should come as no surprise that the cool fashion girls of the world have already been rocking the biggest photo-enhancing products we are about to show you, ranging from oval sunglasses to embroidered denim shorts, but luckily, it's not too late to snatch a few up for yourself, as well.
The reason these trends are meant mainly for Instagram (obviously they read just as stylish IRL) is that they are each so photogenic on their own that your photo will require little to no photogenic qualities from you personally. When you use fashion items as props, you can get away with funky poses, subpar facial expressions, and a better-quality photo that will have the likes rolling in, hands down. Ready to find out which products are destined to up your Instagram game this summer?
Go on to read all about the six products that will be all over your Instagram come summer.
We have been seeing this sunglass shape pop up on nearly everyone everywhere. While the white color made a huge splash at fashion week, we are starting to see the shape churned out in a variety of other colors. Whichever color you choose, there is no denying that these shades make for a killer Instagram.
EMBROIDERED DENIM SHORTS
According to the Instagram accounts of several bloggers, embroidered denim shorts are 10 times better than plain denim shorts, and the photos prove why. If you ever have the option to wear something more fun, eye-catching, and summery overall, passing it up would be a crime. The best thing about these shorts is that they are basically an outfit in themselves. All you need to do is throw on a bikini top or T-shirt and you're good to go.
If there is one detail to pay attention to this summer in the swimwear department, it's laces. From bikinis to one-pieces and even off-the-shoulder tops, this swimsuit style makes for one cool photo as it makes you seem more fashion girl, less look at me and my hot body.

Gingham is the one print we are already seeing flood our Instagram feeds, and we aren't mad about it. It's the summer version of plaid and the cooler version of stripes (at least this year). Truly, it seems like no matter what you pair the pattern with, you instantly have one of the most photogenic looks ever, which is always a marvelous thing.
Clearly we are really into the straw basket bag trend right now, but so is everyone else on Instagram. Besides the fact that this bag is practical for the warmer months, should match the majority of your summer wardrobe, and is just plain adorable, it also makes for the perfect prop in photos. Since we all know posing solo for a picture can be kind of awkward, let this little bag trend come to your rescue.
Show off one of the most flattering parts of a woman's body (in my opinion) without revealing too much skin. Off-the-shoulder dresses are still the go-to frock of choice for bloggers, celebrities, and models alike, and we have the Instagrams to prove it.
