You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? 

Well, sometimes, in 2021, you just don’t need a thousand words. Sometimes all you need is one, and today I’ve got all the one-word selfie captions for ‘ya.

Because hey, you’re a busy person with a lot going on. We don’t all have the time to sit around crafting epic novel-sized captions. K.I.S.S., or, ya know, keep it simple, stupid. 

So, who’s with me?

Most Popular One Word Instagram Captions:

  • Savage 
  • Cute 
  • Daydreaming 
  • Baby 
  • Babe 
  • Hello
  • TGIF

Acronyms count as one word, right?

  • Heartbreaker 
  • Love 
  • Me
  • Heart 
  • Ghosting 
  • You
  • Perfect 
  • Ideal 
  • Dream 
  • Truth 
  • Peace
  • Fun
  • Wild 
  • Drunk 

One word captions for Instagram are not just letters and words, you know. You can add feelings and emotion by way of emojis. Add a heart emoji in front and you’ve got love drunk (you know, in case your grandma is following you on IG and you’re not actually drunk, or maybe you are, but still, grandma). 

  • Selfie
  • Drama 
  • Good
  • Bad 
  • Angel 
  • Devil
  • Writer 

Well, use your own job title here. It might kind of confuse people if you’re a dentist who is captioning their photo writer, or an accountant who uses the single caption astronaut. You get my drift. 

  • Passion 
  • Style 
  • Fashion 
  • Paris

Or wherever you are in the world when taking your selfie (Paris just sounds good right now). 

  • Epic
  • Worthy 
  • Cool
  • Bitch 

I mean, some of you might be down to call yourself this. Put a little angel emoji next to it and it seems like a much more innocent single word caption for Instagram. 

  • Ballin’
  • Scheming 
  • Jokes
  • Smile 
  • Joy 
  • Pisces

Again, use your own astrological sign here. No need to confuse people. Well, unless that’s what you’re going for, which I’m all for. 

  • Travel 
  • Flying 
  • Summer 

Again, one of those ones where I’d like you to change the one word Instagram caption based on what season it actually is (unless we’re going for a little #tbt of course). 

  • Monday 

^ see above 

  • Bored 
  • Thriving 
  • Checkmate 
  • Home 
  • Coffee 
  • Sassy 
  • Witty
  • Bold 
  • Colorful 
  • Mama
  • Gem 
  • Engaged 
  • Married 
  • Single
  • Queen 
  • Beauty 
  • Judging 
  • Killer
  • Beyonce

I mean, if you want to sum up a whole vibe into one word, I think this one is a pretty good start. 

Really, though, the one-word Instagram caption can be whatever you want it to be. But like, obviously keep it to one word, or that’s a whole other can of worms for us to discuss another time. 

Which word will you be using to caption your Instagram selfie?
