All you need to know about 'Barbie Feet', the latest trend that has taken over Instagram

If you scroll through Instagram, then you will come across girls posing with legs looking even longer than usual. Introducing "Barbie feet", the pose which makes you and your legs look way longer, just like a Barbie, simply from pointing your toes. The term was coined by fashion blog Who What Wear after models and bloggers alike were seen with the pose with their toes pointed and heel up. The simple trick has the benefit of elongating your legs in pictures (which always comes in handy) as well as giving you something to do with your body rather than just awkwardly folding your arms.

The latest trend, which involves standing on your tip toes or pointing your feet, was given the name because of the way it resembles a Barbie doll's feet.

This position also makes the legs look longer, thus making it especially popular while wearing a swimsuit.
