TikTok is an app I currently have a love-hate relationship with. While it has provided tons of entertainment for me over the past few months, it has also wasted a lot of my time (which I’m fine with, by the way, just stating the facts).
Besides the random recipes I’ve found and the countless dances I’ve learned, I’ve also been sucked into the fashion scene that is trending on the app, so much so that it has caused me to actually purchase random items I never thought I would.
Earlier this year, I wrote a story that skimmed the surface of the sartorial setting on TikTok, discussing what everyone is wearing and why. Well, just a couple of months later.
The trends have evolved and so has my personal interest in the matter. Ahead, go on to find out which new fashion trends are gaining steam on TikTok and in my heart.
This trend isn’t new for TikTok, but it’s a new trend in my life, and therefore I’m including it. Tie-dye has become a hobby of sorts during this new time spent at home, but as someone who has no skill in the crafting department.
I prefer to purchase mine. And after seeing TikTok after TikTok featuring the eye-catching sweats, the purchase became nonnegotiable. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Aries Tie Dye Track Pants ($203)
Spiritual Gangster Perfect Sweatpants ($98)
Cotton Citizen Milan Sweats in Dahlia Splatter ($195)
I truly do not remember the last time I thought about a sarong, but after seeing Addison Rae (basically the Kim Kardashian West of TikTok) wear one on repeat, I decided it was time to up my swimwear game with the chic accessory. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Camila Coelho Sao Paulo Skirt in Nude ($115)
Lovers + Friends Boone Sarong Skirt in Tie Dye ($135)
Ellejay Skye Sarong in Lime ($55)
Calvin Klein Underwear
Leave it to the younger generation to take something as classic as Calvin Klein underwear and make it feel brand new. Whether it’s popping out from underneath a crop top or a pair of baggy sweats, this branded band is what the youths are gravitating toward right now, as am I. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette ($19)
Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Bralette and Bikini Set ($20)
Calvin Klein Modern Cotton Boyshort Panty ($16)
If you spend hours scrolling through TikTok a day, you’ll understand the hype of an oversize bold-stripe T-shirt. The look is extremely eye-catching on the app and makes any casual look feel 10 times cooler. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Victoria Victoria Beckham Striped Logo Tape T-Shirt
( $160) $96
Amazon Essentials Short-Sleeve Stripe Crew T-Shirt Fit by Dxl ($8)
Guess Originals Embroidered Stripe Tee
( $49) $25
The one-shoulder top is quickly sweeping TikTok, and I am all for it. This is one trend, in particular, that has gained respect in the fashion community as well, so I feel extra good about buying into the summer top trend. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Autumn Cashmere Rib Slash One Shoulder Tank in Mandarin ($143)
Ninety Percent Ribbed One Shoulder Top ($55)
Lovers + Friends Thalia Top in Warm Tan ($60)
Crew-Neck Sweatshirts & Button-Downs
A collared shirt popping out from underneath a crew-neck sweatshirt? Believe it or not, this is one trend that is hitting hard on TikTok right now. Both girls and guys have been sporting the layered look, and it’s time I hop on the bandwagon as well. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Hanes Ecosmart Fleece Sweatshirt ($6)
H&M Cotton Shirt ($25)
Anine Bing Esme Sweatshirt ($169)
Sheer Printed Shirts
I’ve loved this trend for a while, so I will admit I was quite pleased with myself when I saw all the trendy young TikTokers rocking these sheer shirts as well. From butterflies to animal prints, these loud tops are working all kinds of wonders on my wardrobe right now. Pinterest Shop the trend:
Jaded London Mesh Long Sleeve Crop Beach Top in Zebra ($25)
Weird Graphic Tees
If there’s one thing I’ve noticed about TikTok over the past few months, it’s that the fashion can get weird, but the good kind of weird. As a huge lover of graphic tees, I found comfort in knowing they would have a home on the app. Pinterest Shop the trend:
