5 Instagram trends to try with your instax now

From the news feed and Reels, to Stories and IGTV (RIP), it’s hard to keep on top of the latest Instagram trends. So we’ve done all the heavy lifting for you to uncover what’s getting noticed on the ‘gram, with - of course - an instax twist. Here’s our take on the top Instagram trends earning likes right now. 

1. Get meta with a photo within a photo

A trendy and Insta-worthy way to show off your instax prints is to take a photo of them. It may seem simple but this is sure to produce a picture-perfect ‘gram for your wall. Try out this technique from Elle Ferguson where she pops her instax prints in-situ of the beach. 

2. Perfect symmetry 

There’s nothing more soothing than a photo in perfect harmony, and right now symmetry in imagery is a big trend on Instagram. To replicate this trend with instax, try a DIY photo wall! You can keep it simple or get as creative as your heart desires. Not only will you be able to jazz up that blank wall in your bedroom, but you’ll also be able to show off your artsy side to your friends in the news feed.

3. A perfectly stylish flat lay story

Flat lays are not just for influencers! This trend is great for Stories or building your Instagram aesthetic on the grid. A flat lay is also a great way to subtly include other key messages or products you’re keen to share with your followers. To flat lay the instax way, get your camera and prints ready, and let your inner art director go for styling gold with key props and elements. Our tip? Less is more and keep a healthy amount of white space. 

4. Interior Style

An instax is more than just a photo. It’s a tangible memory that is worthy of any picture frame. Luckily enough, Instagram can’t get enough of stylish home decor inspo and trendy design tips. Try showcasing your style and exquisite taste to your followers by adding your favourite prints to an Insta-worthy photo frame.


5. Pops of Colour

Instagram is a great platform for visualising your aesthetic and personality, which is why using an instax is a no-brainer when it comes to taking your content to the next level. The suite of colours belonging to the instax family also beautifully leans into one of the biggest trends of the moment - bright, happy pops of colour. 

The Stripe, Confetti and Candy Pop are among some of our top-picks in our patterned film range for that oh-so fun burst of colour for your feed.
