We love finding new ways to snap photos, especially when it’s as easy as standing in a new way to take a super-flattering mirror selfie. In recent years, we’ve seen Barbie feet and the baby giraffe pose go viral, but if you take a scroll through Instagram now, you’ll discover that celebs, models, and fashion people have a new trick for pulling off photogenic outfit photos. Let me introduce you to jazz legs, everyone—a term we coined because of the bent, Fosse-like leg that looks like it belongs in a dance routine.
To master the pose, simply lean on your back leg and bend it at an angle, keeping your front leg forward and straight with your toes pointed. It instantly lengthens the body and gives the illusion of longer legs, so it’s easy to see why it’s become the new go-to stance for selfies right now. Ahead, see the “jazz legs” pose in action, including how I test-drove it myself.
