The ball has dropped and you’ve cleaned up the confetti. Maybe you’ve already written your New Year’s resolutions in your crisp, new planner. All that’s left to do is post some of your fave photos from over the holidays with January captions and quotes that perfectly embody that the new year’s a fresh start.

Look, January gets a bad rap. Between the often dismal weather and the ebb of all things merry and bright, the dark days of winter can get, well, a little dark. But, honestly, there’s a lot to love about the first month of the year. Between snow-lined streets that look like something out of a storybook and a totally fresh start to try it all again, January is actually a pretty hopeful month. So why not show off the positive attitude you’re taking into the new year with some #WinterAesthetic posts and the perfect January captions for Instagram to go with them?

The first month of the year may be your month, which means you’ll definitely need a few January birthday captions to post along with your party pics. Even if it’s not your birthday, you may have challenged yourself to post more on Instagram this year, to ensure you remember the moments you don’t want to forget. For that New Year’s challenge, having some captions for January or even just short January quotes will help make posting a breeze. Whether it’s a Reel you spent way too long editing together or just a photo dump of moments from your camera roll, these Instagram captions for January will pair well with your post.

Since you’re coming off a long winter break and getting back into a routine, don’t stress yourself out coming up with your own January Instagram captions. Just go ahead, sit back, and scroll through your photos of you and your besties ringing in the new year or playing in the snow with your dog. Then, choose one of these January quotes to show your Instagram feed that, ready or not, this is going to be your year to shine. After all, January is only chapter one, and you’ve got a whole new story to write.
