A not-so-recent Instagram trend is finally catching the public's eye, so for all of you who like to pass off a posed photo as a candid shot, we're totally on to you. Don't let us stop you, though, because those snaps of you and your squad laughing a little too gracefully are just so darn adorable. These planned candid shots, aka, "plandids," are one of the most beloved trends to come out of Instagram in recent years (and I can totally see why). Even if they are a little artificial, they're oh-so-cute. Plandid Instagram captions can make or break the perfect post, so choose wisely how you pair your photo and description.
Many of our fave celebs have gotten in on the plandid action, and the internet is loving it. It's no wonder that Instagrammers everywhere are embracing the trend; it gives all control to the photographer while maintaining that natural sense of authenticity. It's bound to get a positive response from followers, and as far as anyone knows, it's as candid as it gets.
Plandids are a great option for girl squads of all kinds. You can show off the amazing talents that brought you together, the epic end-of-summer vacay you managed to afford, or the never-ending laughs you share. You're practically guaranteed to slay it, and your followers will be wondering how you pulled off such a perfect snap.
The only thing missing from your post is the right caption. You can use your caption to humblebrag about you and your squad, or to deter from the fact that your candid is totally a plandid. Here are 20 Instagram captions for your plandid photos of your girl squad.
