We’re getting close to the end of the #AEOSHORTSCONTEST, so you only have a few days left to enter for a chance to win a $500 gift card or an amazing trip to Big Sur! We’ve already showed you all of our best tips & tricks to photograph like a pro (you’ll definitely want to check out that post!), so we looked to our AEO Style Ambassadors for some Instagram-worthy photo inspiration. Check out all of their looks below, and shop their shorts by hovering over the images!
Show The Details: Instead of a full body image, @saraannowen zoomed in on the details of her look, focusing on the shorts. This is a great way to show us your personal #AEOSTYLE!
Keep It Simple: Sometimes, less is more. @michelle_orsi proves that a photo doesn’t have to be crowded to be striking. We love the way she showcased her denim shorts in this close-up.
Play With Hand Placement: Draw the eye to the main focus of your photo with hand placement like @krystintysire did here. Our eyes go right to her denim shorts! You could even use this to show off back pockets too.
Use Fun Photo Effects: @thetravelinghummingbird totally grabbed our attention with this cool mirrored effect. Use the technology you have at your fingertips!
Look Away From The Camera: It’s not that we don’t heart your face … this is just a really flattering angle! @jarrettperez has mastered the look-away shot.
Take Advantage Of Nature: @whatcourtwore knows that a background can make or break your pic. Get outside & use the beauty of your surroundings!
Use Props: @ktnewms is a props queen. Add some unexpected textures and layers to your typical outfit laydown or details shot by using props like coffee, notebooks & jewelry.
Show us how you style your AEO Shorts on Instagram using #AEOSTYLE for a chance to be featured in our Style Gallery and #AEOSHORTSCONTEST to enter the contest. Let us know what your favorite shorts fit is in the comments below!
