Trying to become more fashionable doesn’t meant that you have to splurge on a whole new closet. In fact, becoming more fashionable is easier than you think. It’s all about mastering the art of subtle styling tricks and knowing when to wear the right clothing. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by different trends in the fashion industry. Can we let you in on the secret?
TikTok is the king of trends. The viral video-sharing app has become the unlikely home of fashion and beauty trends (along with just about everything else!) online. Do you want to lean how to make whipped lemonade? Go to TikTok. Do you want a review on the latest Kylie Cosmetic collection? It’ll be on TikTok. Do you want to shake up your makeup routine? TikTok is the perfect place to start looking. While Instagram has had its day in the sun, TikTok is able to turn a viral video into a trial quickly than you can say “video sharing”.
Contouring is one of the biggest trends within the beauty industry. In recent years, we’ve gone from dramatic Kim Kardashian worthy contour to a more natural look. Even Mario Dedivanovic, the go-to makeup artist for the Kardashians sisters, has switched to a light-handed approach for contouring. With beauty trends all pointing towards a ‘natural’ look, it’s no surprise that “soft sculpting” is the trend that everyone is talking about.
TikTok is the corner of the internet that we all go to when we need hacks – whether it’s beauty hacks or for the latest must-try recipe. The video-sharing app is full of advice and hacks that we would never think about. Not every hack on TikTok is easy to do – or even advisable to try. An Australian reality TV star found this out the hard way after trying an at-home acupuncture treatment that she saw on TikTok.
One of the biggest trends in beauty right now is neon. It’s neon lights everywhere you look. The resurgence of the beauty trends is in no small part due to the Y2K aesthetic, which is making everyone experiment with colour.

It’s a mash-up of two of the biggest trends in the hair industry right now, the shag and the mullet. Just like most of the beauty trends that we’re seeing right now, the wolf-cut has become a trend in no small part due to TikTok.

Cardigans are one accessory that often make us think of our grandmothers or our school uniform. For years, they were considered one of the least-chic accessories that you could add to your closet.

Whether it’s oversized, subtle, or statement cardigans, this accessory has become a knitwear staple that is trans-seasonal and inter-generational. Everyone from Gen Z to your parents are wearing cardigans. This accessory is making a major comeback and it’s one that you want to add to your closet ASAP.
August is a funny time for our closets. It’s still summer (technically) but it can start to feel like the early days of autumn. August is the definition of a ‘transitional’ month, meaning you’ll find yourself pulling from both the summer and autumn sections of your closet to create fashion looks. By this stage in the summer, we’re all tired of repeating the same six outfits every week. August is your last chance to get the most out of your summer closet, while letting you have the first chance to start experimenting with autumn essentials.

Denim is an evergreen fashion staple that everyone needs in their closet. It’s a subculture within the fashion industry and is always evolving to meet the needs of contemporary society. Designers reinvent the idea of denim almost every season, changing it up to keep denim current and at the forefront of fashion – no matter what is happening. Just look at the different types of denim that we’ve seen on the runway for 2021. Spring/Summer collection focused on oversized fits that were designed for our post-lockdown lives, where comfort was put first. This season was also when skinny jeans were declared as being cancelled, before form-fitting denim jeans made a resurgence in the Autumn/Winter collections.
Y2K is one of the biggest trends right now. Whether it’s fashion or beauty, everyone is talking about the trends that dominated the early 2000s.

Everyone from beauty editors to celebrities and influencers are rocking the Y2K trends. Whether it’s space buns, thin brows, or ombre lips, it’s time to shake up your beauty routine with a touch of Y2K.
