The Footsie

29th June 2016

We all like a good selfie, but the latest summer trend loved by celebrities such as Katy Perry and Kendall Jenner is the ‘footsie’ – a picture of your feet to show off your summer travels or adventures!

To help you perfect your own footsie, PEP&CO has put together their top tips for putting your best foot forward and getting the perfect shot…

1. Choose Your Accessories

Slip your feet into some pretty sandals or keep it real in some cheerful flip flops. Going barefoot? Why not try an anklet or toe ring for a real boho feel.

2. Pedicure, Pedicure, Pedicure!

If, like us, you think putting varnish on your toes will make up for all the horrible wrongs you do to them the rest of time, this is a must. Don’t be ashamed to treat picking the perfect colour like it’s the most important decision you’ll ever make.

Bright colours such as coral and pink will ensure your toes stand out and look picture perfect. And if you have the confidence to go au naturel, ensure your feet are protected with SPF and moisturiser.

3. #NoFilter

Ideally, look for a naturally well-lit location and pass on using a flash. If the sun is shining, then a filter might not be necessary – but our favourite for adding a bit of warmth and colour include Instagram filters Valencia and Nashville.

4. A New Angle

Taking your picture from above will show more of your feet’s travels and add an element of adventure. Footsies can also be taken sitting down with your legs stretched out in front of you – ideally whilst reclining on a sun lounger!

5. A Beautiful Backdrop

Copy the celebrities and ensure you show off the exotic locations where your feet have taken you – a gloriously golden beach, a crystal clear ocean or even just buried in the grass in your back garden!
