Keep in check about the angles

It is aerial view, holding camera down or holding it up to provide an unobstructed view of your outfit or downwards to the side to capture your outfit and slaying expression.
Make sure the mirror is clean
You cannot click a perfect selfie through dirty or blurred mirror. Make sure your mirror is clean. You won't like dust particles covering your face or parts of your outfits and hindering the proper view.
Any mirror will work
You don't have to stick to any particular mirror on a particular corner of your house. These days you will find mirror and reflective surfaces everywhere. From lifts to high rise buildings mirrors are available everywhere. Just find your best angle, pose and click the picture.
Look at the mirror not at lens
For capturing the best selfie, it is suggested by various supermodels to avoid looking at the lens. Rather focus on the mirror and pose. The selfie will look natural and will showcase not only your outfit but your expressions as well.
Mirror selfie can be of any length
Just because you are clicking a mirror selfie it is not mandatory for the selfie to showcase your entire length. You can show off your new accessories or your amazing and expensive top by focus on the upper part of your body or use small length mirror. There is no hard and fast rule to showcase entire body in mirror selfie.
Stick to the spot
If there is a particular mirror at your home that helps in capturing the perfect selfie stick to it. You don't have to find different mirror or spot for every mirror selfie you click. one spot also works just fine as long as you get good background, cool lighting and space.
Do not forget to pose. You can sit, stand, dance, jump, etc and do anything you like. Your mirror, your rules. So do not become shy and pose freely. Show your smile, bitch resting face, high jump, calves, etc no one will stop you.
