AKIMBO – adv. with hands on the hips and elbows turned outwards.
So this one is pretty straight forward, I just thought it was interesting that there is a word for this. I’ve only ever come across it a handful of times in conversation and literature, so if you think you can do it, this one would probably be a good one to make you sound smart.
eg. Peter Pan is well known for posing with his arms akimbo.
