Yes, another one.

The art of posting the perfect Instagram photo isn't as easy as you think. First you've got to get the most Instagrammable location, then the lighting has to be just right, and obviously your outfit has to be on point too. But then comes the hard part – the posing.

Well, luckily we're here to help you out with that part. We've already shown you the strandid, the shelfie belfie and the Flamingo, but there's a hot new Instagram pose on the block and all you need is a hat... introducing the 'hat clasp'.

The "Bambi" is new Instagram pose hitting the internet

The term appears to have been coined by Metro and basically, just start off by grabbing a hat. Whether it's the bucket variety, a simple straw fedora or even a top hat, it doesn't even matter. Next tilt your head just slightly and touch the brim of the hat. That's it, you're done.


The facial expression is all down to you. Some have chosen to rock a pair of sunglasses, others have decided to go full-frontal and stare directly down the camera lens.

The location is your own doing too. Will you try the hills of Capri, Italy, à la Nicole Scherzinger, or in front of a tree for the hippy au natural vibe like Vanessa Hudgens? It literally works anywhere.

It's the perfect pose to flex on the 'gram with whilst you're enjoying your summer vacation. Don't have a hat? Well… sorry, we can't help you.

It's really taken off with the celebrities and Instagram influencers and you've probably never even noticed.
