There are multiple ways to use Instagram. Most of us use it to share aspects of our daily lives and take fun and cute pictures to show our friends, but there are some that go above and beyond to ensure their Instagram is so aesthetically pleasing that you just can’t help but scroll through it. If you’re looking to spice up your own Instagram feed, here are 15 aesthetics for you to try out!
If you’re anything like me, then you’ve seen this Instagram theme multiple times before and just didn’t know the name of it. This “clean” theme is aesthetically pleasing to the eye due to its simplicity and lack of color besides white and a few pops of other bright colors. To accomplish this type of aesthetic, stick to one or two subjects in each photo and try not to make it look too busy!
2. Singular Colors
This type of Instagram aesthetic is fairly easy to pull off if you’re really into a certain color. For the most part, stick to wearing a singular color in your photos such as red, blue, yellow, etc, as well as taking photos with objects that match your clothes color-wise. Editing wise, all you need to do to make your photos stand out a bit more is by amping up the contrast and you’ve got yourself an easy and manageable Instagram feed!
If you are truly into a specific season, then this aesthetic was made for you! This type of Instagram aesthetic focuses on taking photos of certain items that relate to whatever season you want your feed to focus on, such as sunflowers and sunshine for spring, snow and warm fireplaces for winter, and so on!
4. Artsy And Romantic
I see this aesthetic fairly often. These photos can be accomplished by editing in a certain moody and nostalgic way. Tone down your colors and add some quotes to them! This way, whenever someone is looking at your feed, they’ll be reminded of those older and peaceful romantic movies that everybody loves and adores.
5. 90s Anime And Cartoons
For me, this aesthetic is probably one of the most pleasing and entertaining to look at. Incorporating simple relatable screencaps of older animes and cartoons within your feed will instantly make it more fun and interesting to scroll through. But that doesn’t mean that is the only thing you need to post to keep your feed consistent. Among a selfie every once and a while, picking screencaps of shows you love will give your feed a more personal touch and let people know a little more about your own interests and moods.
If you love literature, then this is surely an aesthetic you should try if you are wanting to start one. Incorporating your favorite quotes and poems into your Instagram feed is a simple and easy way to create a cohesive and manageable aesthetic that will keep people engaged and interested in what you have to post. Maybe even post your own pieces of work if that’s a hobby of yours!
7. No Filter
While at first this type of feed doesn’t appear to have its own aesthetic, if you take a moment to look at these types of photos all at once all together, you’ll see that taking a carefree photo and posting it is an aesthetic all in itself. That, and it’s super easy!
8. Nature Lover
If you are one of those people that is one with the forest and everything in it, then this is the type of aesthetic to strive for. Focusing your pictures on all things greenery is pleasing to the eye and creates a peaceful and lovely Instagram feed. Not to mention it gives you an excuse to go out into the world and have a little adventure as you strive for those perfect pictures of what nature has to offer.
This will probably be the hardest aesthetic to pull off, but if you are lucky enough to have the chance to travel the world and take photos of your journey, then give this aesthetic a try.

10. Dark And Moody
Another easy to accomplish aesthetic, especially if you’re a night owl and love going on adventures after the sun goes down. Simply keep things dark. Taking photos with the flash on is the perfect way to obtain this type of aesthetic! Over time, the black backgrounds of each of your photos will blend to create a cohesive Instagram feed.
11. Light And Playful
This aesthetic is for anybody that loves to sun and exploring the world when the sun is at its highest. To accomplish this aesthetic, wear lots of pastel colors and keep things fun and light in your pictures. Go out and get some ice cream and document it! Don’t take it too seriously and try to have fun in your pictures. Only then will you will have great material for your feed that also goes well together.
Keeping your feed strictly about the food you eat will never fail to catch the eye of those who scroll through your Instagram. I could scroll through pictures of food all day long, and so do thousands of others out there, making this type of aesthetic perfect for all you food lovers out there! To make it more cohesive, take pictures of a specific type of foods, like junk food or sweets!
13. Pet Lover
Making your Instagram all about your cat or dog is perfect for anyone out there who doesn’t necessarily know where to begin when striving for an aesthetic. Taking photos of your pet is easy and adorably fun! Who doesn’t love to admire our cute little companions?
A fashion aesthetic is perfect for anyone who’s style is out of this world. If you love clothes, give this one a try!
15. Holographic Space Babe
I’ve seen this aesthetic a few times around, and it never fails to impress me. This type of aesthetic is for those out there that simply love holographic clothing and makeup. Not only this it eye-catching, but incredibly fun!
