We've said it before and we'll say it again, but when it comes to your selfie, you're the star of the show #obvi.

Butttttttt (yes, there's a but here), nothing wrong with a selfie that's got a good backdrop, right?

Absolutely not, which is why next time you're searching for killer selfie ideas, we want to invite you to try out some of these backdrops.

Who knows, it could be the difference between a handful of likes and a pic that all your followers take notice of.

1) Find a flower wall

Okay, okay, we get it, you're not about to go install a whole flower wall in your house—not like you're a freaking millionare.

Bey hey, just because you're not made of money doesn't mean you can't get a little creative.

Build your own flower wall of fake flowers. Find a flower wallpaper. Hell, go stand in front of a flowery tree to get that effect. Floral backdrops are always killer in the selfie game.



2)  Seek out neutral backdrops

Wall whites, black buildings, brick—we love a good neutral backdrop.

These neutral backdrops tend to be especially good when shooting a mirror selfie since it doesn't distract from your rockin' outfit.



3) Utilize that walk-in closet

Okay, so this one only applies if you have one of those dreamy walk-in closets thats's worthy of being photographed (you lucky b).

Perfect for mirror selfies, don't waste the opportunity to use your closet as a backdrop.

4) Nature, nature, nature

Come on, easiest backdrop ever.

Find a tree in the fall, stand near some water in the summer, or just look for a bright blue sky, when it comes to nature backdrops, you can't fail here. Promise.



5) In front of your signature color

Got a signature color?

Hello, now is the perfect time to use it.

Pink tile, red brick, a wall blue—take a look around your city and find backdrops that match your signature color.

Don't have a signature color? Oh friend, if you want to have any kind of reputation on Instagram, that signature color is a must. Get 'ta steppin'
