Caption for girls – 300+ of the best quotes, captions and songs

So you’ve got your ‘money shot’ – the perfect photograph of you, or your friends that shows exactly what you intended. Now just the small matter of writing the perfect caption for girls, right?

Whether that caption is for Facebook, or Instagram, or another social network, it can be difficult to put your thoughts into words! We’ve got you covered and we’ve put together a bumper guide of the best captions, quotes and snippets to caption your picture of a girl (or girls!); from short captions to well-known quotes.

Increasing engagement

If you’re interested to find out how to increase engagement on your captions, skip ahead to the bottom of this article.

We’ve also got some great Instagram guides, particularly ones for selfie captions, or if you’re smiling in the shot.

Finally, the most important thing to drive engagement is making sure your picture is as compelling (if not more), than your caption or even your perfectly-researched hashtags. For us, the only way to ensure we have a stand-out, cracking shot is to use Adobe Lightroom Presets. Think of these as your photo editing game-changer; taking a good picture and making it GREAT by just using a solid preset. Check out some of these that we would highly recommend. They also make sure our Instagram feed looks consistent.

Remember: If there is an author, you must credit them! We’ve put credits below wherever possible.

Bonus: Creating strong Instagram captions

If your photo and caption are for Instagram, you’ll know that the key to growth on that platform is through consistent engagement. Comments are becoming increasingly important in the Instagram algorithm with the possibility of likes being hidden entirely. So, how to increase engagement?

Other than a fantastic photograph, your caption itself should ideally encourage comments. We have found that the best way to do that is to be funny or, ideally, to ask a question or two, to get responses.

Some examples could include:

  • What do you think of my selfie?
  • Guy or girl? Let me know in the comments!
  • Tag your favourite girl in the comments

You should also clearly think about which hashtags to use – check out our Instagram hashtag cheat sheet here for more tips.
