How to Create an Aesthetic Feed on Instagram for 2021
So, without further ado, may I present you the Before and After feeds:
My Before feed wasn’t that bad, it was kinda aesthetic but it was missing something… a little more personalization, so I now made it a bit more vintage and aesthetic while keeping the products shots as well… here’s How to Create an Aesthetic Feed on Instagram for 2021:
What do you think?
As I will show you below, you will see how the tones and the colors are also changed. I branded myself into specific tones (beige / browns / pastels / creamy) while still using a bit of other colors and black and whites. I made it all visually vintage and aesthetics, while keeping it personal.
How to Switch to a Vintage – Aesthetic Feed on Instagram
Decide your Branding:
So the first thing is to choose your tone of voice and your branding, your colors/tones and fonts. Then you can practice with apps like Preview or Grid to edit the feed with the right mix of different framed photos.
What are the colors that most represent you?
Bring the attention to props and small details – such as for example a vintage mirror, the lighter and whiter background, flowers, books, portraits, statues and patterns. The more similar they are, the more your feed will have a visual feel of a whole, like a magazine spread and your followers and new followers will want to tune in and see your next posts (knowing what they will expect, because they already liked your style)
Shoot in a Natural Light:
You want to make sure you are shooting in a good warm natural light to give your photos and videos that golden aesthetic feel. And when you find it, shoot a lot!
Be Seasonal & On trend:
Be seasonal and on trend, so your content will get saved and shared and noticed. We are approaching Spring – use pastels and colors and props that are matching this season!
Get inspired from your Instagram explore page or your niche hashtags and pages and other content creators, as well as magazines, art, movies and books. Anything that has a creative flare to it, will get your mood lifted and ready to produce a lot of content. (pro tip: I also keep inspirations boards of content that I liked and saved on my Instagram and Pinterest folders, it’s very helpful!)
