How to Take Gram Worthy Pics

     If you’re anything like us, you’re already thinking of new ways to spice up your IG grid this hot girl summer. Forget your usual beach pic, we’re here to show you how to rock that new swim style and take your best bikini shots! 

Sky is the Limit

Bikinis and blue skies were practically made for each other. If you’re in the mood to flaunt your new ‘kini ASAP and there’s no pool or beach in sight, no worries! You can easily take these gorg shots anywhere - you might even end up on Pinterest! Take it from a low angle where the shot only shows you and the sky. It’s sure to stand out on your feed and elongate your torso. You can go for a blue on blue look wearing the new tropical printed bikinis in Kai Aloha.

Picnic Queen

No better time to stay out in the yard and soak up some sun! Lay out a picnic blanket on the grass, add some refreshments of your choice, and grab a good book (even if you’re a bookworm or not!). Snap the shot with you on your set up and make sure to capture that gorgeous greenery. You can go the extra mile with some berries and flowers, or you can be the snack too. Our new psychedelic Drippy print is definitely a winner, babe - you’ll be a stunner under the hot summer sun! 

Hit the Road

Take it to the pavement for the whole street style look! We love it when you wear your swim as a top and pair it with your fave denim shorts and sneakers. The strappy Chloe Top in Rio Paisleys just gives off a total badass chick look that’s surely a 10 - and everyone else will be dying to pull it off just as good as you do

Room Shoot

How about going for a mini shoot indoors? You can totally get double-tap-worthy photos in your own room - because the timer is your best friend. Just take that quick snap before heading out - the effortless look is always better. A hot, trending bikini definitely helps too - we suggest you grab your chance to get your hands on the Martini Top in Cocoa. Don’t tell us we didn’t warn you babes, this color is selling out fast!

Green with Envy

Kick your indoor shoot up a notch by flexing those thriving plants of yours! Just add a few of your beloved greens into the frame and you’re all set to take those bikini photos - because let’s be real, you know you became a plant mom for the ‘gram. We love to pair our earthy plants with cute green tones too - our fave floral retro swim in Buttercup Baby is the perfect match.

The Travelling Mirror Selfie

While this was initially a tiktok mirror challenge, it’s already evolved into a whole new look outdoors. All you have to do is bring out a small mirror (or a full length one depending how extra you are) and take those mirror selfies. Everyone’s currently loving sage green swimsuits, so we highly recommend you rock our Seafoam.

We can’t wait to see how you rock those Blackbough ‘kinis on your socials, so make sure to tag us!

Happy Earth Day from Blackbough

As we all know, Blackbough is for the girls who adore the beach – but basking in the sun, lounging on the sand, and taking a dip in the sea, all come with a major responsibility to protect Mama Nature. This is why for Earth Day 2022, we are giving our beloved community a way to join the reforestation movement and help save our earth.
