TikTok is an app most of us swore to stay away from before the pandemic. A lot can change in a year. It’s now an app we look at before even checking out Instagram or Twitter. The app, which is dominated by Generation Z and Millennials, has come to dominate the fashion trends. Who would have thought the app would have the power to cancel skinny jeans? We’re rounding up a few of our favorite fashion trends from TikTok that everyone is obsessed with.
Before the pandemic hit, TikTok was app that few of us took seriously. In fact, most of us swore to never download it. Then the pandemic hit, and everything changed. With endless hours in the days that we needed to fill, TikTok became the leading social media platform by the end of 2020. While we often associate Instagram with fashion trends, TikTok is rivalling the app for its fashion crown. With its viral videos, TikTok has become a breeding ground for every type of subculture. The algorithm allows you to curate your ‘for you page’ to reflect your fashion and personality.
