The new season is approaching, so prepare yourself by changing your Instagram’s theme!  It may seem daunting at first, but with a little bit of time and dedication, you can have the Insta you’ve always wanted.  An aesthetically pleasing Instagram is very popular right now.  Before you can accomplish that, you have to find the perfect theme for your account. These themes were all created with the downloadable app, VSCO.  VSCO is a free app that includes a camera, editing tools, and allows for photo sharing   However, any photo-editing app would work.  The amount of editing you do on the photo is really up to you!  These seven themes will help you give your insta the makeover it deserves.

Here are different examples of themes, how to create them, and an account to serve as your inspiration.

1. “Cool Blue”

If majority of your photos have a blue or green tone, this is the theme for you!  Keep this in mind for summer to show off all of your adventures.

5. “Pretty Pink”


This theme is also white-based, however it is used to create a “blank” backdrop and is perfect for those of you who showcase clothes or makeup on your account.  The key to this theme is to ensure the colors you use look good together, such as light pinks and purples.

6. “Sweater Weather”

Cold weather is approaching fast and this theme looks as cozy as your favorite sweater.  If your photos are normally dark and full of blacks and browns, then this theme will be the best for your account.
