Even as a fashion editor who’s job often relies on conducting trend research, I often end up being a little nervous to let myself incorporate some popular trends into my everyday wardrobe. It’s easy to see (and love) certain items on the runway or in campaigns but might be tough to envision them as something you’d wear everyday. However, when I find myself viewing “fit check” videos on TikTok of the same trends, I’m not as intimidated. The outfit videos often show users out and about, so I’m more inclined to take note of the wearability of said items. Plus, TikTok can lead you to the accounts of people who aren’t just people in the industry, so there’s a lot more versatility in styling.
With summer on my mind, I’ve rounded up the five trends TikTok has inspired me to try for the warm-weathered season. Below, take a look at the current favored trends on our favored app—from the bright shade of cobalt blue that is quickly replacing kelly green to the ultimate Y2K-inspired cargo pants.
