It's no secret that Mindy Kaling is an Instagram aficionado, sharing stylish snap after stylish snap on her account. And now, InStyle's June cover star is giving us the inside scoop on how she decides which of her ensembles warrant an #OOTD post.

"I like to Instagram a piece of clothing if it's a little bit surprising," Kaling says in the video above. One item that made the cut? A bright Mara Hoffman cutout bathing suit, which also happened to be her first time posting a photo while rocking swimwear.

She also reveals her secret to taking the perfect selfie, though she admits, "I don't take all that many." But when she takes one, she does it right—looking totally beautiful in the process.

[MUSIC] [INAUDIBLE] Instagram a piece of clothing if it's a little bit surprising, there's something about it that I've not yet worn before, or people have not seen me in, and so I've never posted a photo of myself in a bathing suit before, and I just thought It was so flattering and the colors were so outrageous. I don't take all that many selfies. There's lots of photos of me on my Insta, but not a ton of selfies. I have very long arms so I lucky. But, I have long orangutan arms which helps take selfies. That's my tip. [MUSIC]
