Instagram and best friends go together like… well, Instagram and best friends. Where else will you post and share your amazing memories together? Taking bomb-ass photos is the easy part. Coming up with the perfect best friend Instagram captions? That’s the tricky part. How can you put into words just how much your best friend means to you? And in a way that feels as clever and funny and cool and sweet as the two of you? While you could definitely go with one of those tried-and-true quotes from Oprah or Rumi, you might want to lead with something a little more you — and a little less talky.

After all, Instagram is the place for a short caption that captures your friendship in a sweet or funny phrase or sentence. Even a one-word caption can be pretty Gucci (that’s what the kids call it these days, right?). If you need the best friend Instagram caption that will effortlessly epitomize you and your BFF, we’ve got you, boo.
