The 'shmile' is the hot new Instagram pose that everyone is doing right now

Gone are the days where you could simply smile at the camera and snap the picture. Nowadays, it's all about posing in an effortless (but completely and utterly planned prior) kinda way. Hopefully by now, all of you Instagrammers have nailed your Bambi pose, conquered the Barbie Feet pose, thrown in a few Headache Poses for good measure, and now you're ready for a new challenge.

Enter, the 'Shmile Pose'. The latest hot trend apparently refers to the art of shutting your eyes while baring your teeth. Think you can handle it? According to reports, the Shmile - the 'sh' of shut eyes, with the 'mile' of smile - conveys a carefree, down-to-earth vibe - and all the big influencers have been doing it for a while now. Check out the art of the Shmile here, and Instagram to your heart's content.

Fingers crossed your Shmile pose goes to plan. But let's not forget, the best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry - like this model's bikini shower that recently went horribly wrong.
