TikTok has played a pivotal role in most every Gen Zers quarantine. The combination of the app’s exorbitant popularity, the increased amount of time we’re spending online, and the creativity that’s blossomed during lockdown has created an environment for trends to spread at lightning speed.
Thanks to TikTok, unique style choices of different subgroups—like cottagecore and soft boy style—have blended into the mainstream. The uptick in secondhand shopping, coupled with Y2K nostalgia, have popularized once outdated trends like low-rise jeans and velour tracksuits, while a single Instagram story from Gen Z queen Emma Chamberlain prompted the masses to purchase flared leggings. Among these larger trends, there are several fashion pieces that are seen again and again, making them the new must-haves. Here, L’OFFICIEL pulls high fashion offerings of key TikTok styles of the moment that are loved by big creators and everyday users alike.
