The only thing we love more than Olivia Culpo is Olivia Culpo’s impeccable style. Sure, she’s a talented actress, model, *and* a former beauty queen, but even more importantly (we think), every look she pulls off is fierce AF. Lucky for us, she has curated a collection of her favorite Insta-worthy styles, exclusively available at Le Tote, and she took some time to help school us on exactly how to make our ‘grams THAT much more stylishly gorg. Read on to find out Culpo’s tips on taking your Insta-game to the next level.
Brit + Co: What’s your fave Instagram #OOTD recipe?
Olivia Culpo: Choosing an Instagram look always starts with putting together an outfit that makes me feel confident. One easy way to make a look come together is to pair it with coordinating accessories, like a nice bag or a great pair of earrings. I like to choose one favorite accessory — like a bag — and match it with a belt and a pair of shoes.
B+C: What are some pieces that always photograph well?
OC: I always look for bold details like a pop of color, cutouts, or a beautiful silhouette. I also love a good jumpsuit. Adding a bag and sunglasses to the look ties the outfit together and can make the photo really stand out.
B+C: What’s your secret to taking a perfect picture of yourself?
OC: Always search for the best lighting and take a few different angles until you find the right combination for you.
B+C: So, how often do you check Instagram?
OC: I’m on Instagram daily, but I do think it’s important to stay off my phone and be present when I’m with friends and family.
B+C: Which Instagram accounts are a must-follow for you?
B+C: How do you feel about repeating an outfit in the Instagram world?
OC: I’m all for outfit repeating, but I think you should have fun with your style and figure out a way to wear the look differently. For example, I like to wear my Olivia x Le Tote maxi dress as a dress, bathing suit cover-up, or a duster with some jeans and a tank. Instagram is about expressing yourself — if you aren’t having fun and enjoying yourself, showing your style and mood, then try switching things up!
