How To

How to OWN Instagram this party month

The gospel according to #STREET365.

‘Tis the season to TAKE PICTURES (of yourself), DURRR.

Party month has officially arrived and so the battle of the Insta-babe begins.

When it comes to scoring likes and taking the coolest party snaps, our #STREET365 homegirls know what’s up… and we needed a little, uh, #inspo.

SO we stalked them for hours, got tips and stole tricks.

The basics? Epic locations, the coolest “I didn’t even think about it” outfits and an army of cute friends/lovers.

YEP, winning the Instagram game is easy – just study the ‘Gram gospel (the party edition) below, follow the commandments and then sit back, relax and sip on Mojitios while your feed becomes bossy AF for the new year and beyond.

Happy stalk ‘n snapping kids, may this XMAS and NYE bring you all the likes and follows you deserve!
