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 favourite fashion trends from TikTok that everyone is obsessed with.
Most of the users on TikTok were toddlers in the early 2000s (if they were born then!). The Y2k hashtag is one of the most popular on the app, with over 1.3 billion views at the time of this post. This fashion trend is based around the aesthetic of films like Mean Girls and Legally Blonde. Paris Hilton, Lindsey Lohan, and Kim Kardashian are the style muses for this trend. It’s all about logo t-shirts, tiny bags, and velour tracksuits. You want to look like you could have an extra in One Tree Hill.
TikTok is an app built on the idea of curating an aesthetic, with cottagecore being one of the most popular. Cottagecore is a romanticization of rural life and a favourite of Generation Z. It began as a fashion trend on Tumblr in 2018 before transitioning over to TikTok in 2020.If you think Y2K is a trend, #Cottagecore has over 5.4 billion views. The cottagecore fashion trend focuses on feminine dresses that you could imagine seeing in a Jane Austen film.
One star of the TikTok fashion trends is the infamous ‘Strawberry Dress’, which has inspired TikTokers to bring their own twist to the dress. This dress is the creation of Japanese designer Lirika Matoshi and allows you to channel your inner Disney Princess. There are almost 100 million views on the #strawberrydress – showing the potential for the app to take one garment and make it go viral. This dress is certainly a splurge purchase, which has inspired several recreations of the fabric and silhouette.
TikTok has once again made Clueless a classic film. Alicia Silverstone’s iconic plaid skirt outfit has come back as a trend, with no signs of slowing down. The plaid skirt is everywhere on TikTok as it offers something for every aesthetic and trend. If you’re dedicated to Y2K, you can channel your inner Regina George with the skirt. Plaid is a timeless print that gives any outfit a vintage feel, whether your aesthetic is cottagecore or 70s inspired.
If you’re suddenly seeing everyone carrying a Louis Vuitton Pouchette or a Prada nylon bag, it’s thanks to the baguette trend. This accessory has come back with a bang thanks to Generation Z on TikTok discovering the late 90s and early 2000s. These bags are hardly the most practical, but they are stylish. They’re big enough to hold your card holder, phone, and a few makeup essentials. When you’re shopping around, look for a baguette bag with a logo-mania print or a plaid check.
Refreshing your wardrobe every season can be expensive. More of us than ever are choosing to build capsule wardrobes and take a vow of minimalism. Unless you’ve got the budget of a Hadid or a Kardashian, it’s unlikely you can buy into every fashion trend. Thankfully, trends are like boomerangs that eventually come back around.
TikTok is our new favorite social media app. There is something on there for everyone, whatever your interests are. It’s replaced our morning and evening Instagram scrolling session. TikTok has become our daily source of inspiration for everything from weight-loss to managing money to learning about the latest trends. We’re rounding up seven TikTok stars that you need to hit ‘follow’ for.
The skinny jean is a staple in every millennial closet, but it seems the trend has met its match. A scroll through the ‘for you page’ on TikTok will show you that the latest trendsetters on social media are throwing out skinny jeans and going for looser options. Most of the Gen Zers are telling you to throw your favorite denim jeans straight in the bin. Before you burn your skinny jeans, we want to tell you about the future of denim jeans and pant trends for 2021.
Livestream shopping is a new popular trend that allows customers to find out more about their favourite brands, ask questions, and the option to buy items straight from the Livestream. It also offers customers a more engaging experience than simply clicking and loading a virtual shopping cart. Livestream shopping takes advantage of social media's natural interactivity. Comments flash through the screen as audiences tune in.
