Fall, the season of change, new beginnings and Fall Instagrams. As the leaves don their natural Instagram filters of vibrant reds and oranges how could you not want to capture #autumn via your phone? The competition is fierce for the double-digit likes, as they are quickly becoming the reason for the season. Have no fear, as we are here to help you nail the perfect fall Instagram.

1. Wear Plaid & Break Out the Booties.

If fall was a country, plaid would be the flag. A plaid button-down paired with some jeans while strolling through the pumpkin patch on a nice autumn day, looking so careless and effortless makes a perfect Fall Instagram. Perhaps a day of apple picking amongst the beautiful fall trees with your loved ones -- which, note, is also a great opportunity for a Holiday card photo. And what goes better with plaid than boots? You've been waiting all year to break out those booties and now is the time!

2. Use all of the "Fall Emojis".

I love using #allthefallemojis, while also including them in the caption. The official fall emojis (according to me) are: two brown leaves, single red leaf, apple, acorn. (The jack-o-lantern and ghost are to be used only during the week of Halloween, and yes, I too wonder how there are 12 train emojis, yet not a plain pumpkin.) Now, some people will extend their fall emojis to include the coffee cup, red wine, green leaves, fire, I say OK...but just make sure the photo goes with the pic. For example, if I were to use the coffee emoji in conjunction with a fall gram, I'd make sure I was in an oversized sweater drinking a coffee and use the hashtag "#sweaterweather."

3. Hashtags, use them who cares.

Speaking of hashtags, maybe do them as a comment so they don't interfere with the aesthetic of the post. People don't want to decipher your #text #though #reading #all #of #your #hashtags. (See how annoying that was?). That being said, some of my favorite fall hashtags are: #seasonoflove, #fallinlove, #fallsohard, #autumn, #sweatherweather, #cuddleweather, #applepicking, #autumn, #allthingsfall.

4. Pumpkin it Up!

It might be at a pumpkin patch or a casual pumpkin in the background. It goes without saying that a pumpkin will obviously up your chance of achieving the dream of double-digit Instagram likes. (And clearly, puppies in any Instagram only add to the likes, especially if they are as adorable as Whiskey!)

5. Fall Doors

Right, I know? A door you ask? But have you ever seen a doorway/entrance decorated to fit the season? It gives you a warm feeling inside and makes you feel right at home and cozy!

Most of all, remember, it really doesn't matter. Once people scroll past it they are likely not to spend their day talking about it, so who cares, have fun with it.
