Here we go again.

Sorry if you've already perfected the "Hat Clasp" and the "Shelfie Belfie", or even the Flamingo, but that's old news now. There's a new Instagram pose on the block that's going to blow all the old ones out of the water. Introducing…"Elbows In The Air" – and it's about to take over your summer.

The "shelfie belfie" pose is the latest Instagram trend and it's ridiculous

Yes, we've finally discovered a pose that is fitting for everyone this summer. All you need is, well…elbows. The Sun coined the phrase and it looks like everyone's doing it on their summer vacays.


Basically, all it involves is lifting up your arms and resting them behind your head, while keeping your elbows bent. It's perfect for showing off your tan, swimsuit and your bod. And better yet, it's so simple to recreate.

The key is to make sure it looks like you were caught in a totally candid moment but the rest is up for you to customise. The flattering pose elongates the body and corrects your posture as you stretch towards the sky. It's also a great opportunity to show off your earrings... or armpits. You know, whatever you prefer.

It's already hugely popular but don't take our word for it, these pics prove it.
