The beauty of Instagram stories is that you can post something without thinking about your feed, planning an elaborate photo shoot in your home, or even tracking down the ideal lighting. And yet, you still have an array of beautiful story filters and fonts to choose from to stick to your aesthetic. IG stories are more personal than your grid photos — they’re meant for capturing a new outfit right after you've tried it on or your morning coffee in real-time. For those specific posts, you'll need Instagram story captions for selfies and sharing your day-to-day with your followers.

These captions and quotes for your Instagram story may be shorter than the ones you typically go for, since they'll be layered over your pic or casually tucked into the corner of the screen. They may complement a GIF you want to use or include a signal to your crush that they should totally hit up your DMs. Not to mention, these casual Instagram captions for your stories may highlight the tie-dye shirt you're trying to show off, or the bright beam of sunlight shining through your window that deserves a shoutout on the 'gram.

Once you pick out your favorite Instagram story quotes or one-liners that fit the vibe you're going for, you'll want to choose a font within the app. To caption your story with something flirty, the text may call for a simple Serif font, while one with a snap of your morning coffee may look better in Typewriter. Take a look at these caption ideas for Instagram story selfies and tap into your artsy side. Put together the perfect post and serve the sweetest #looks on social media.
