Have you been sucked into the black hole called TikTok as well? If the answer is a resounding yes, then you’ve probably had enough of viral dance challenges like Say So, Start Now, and yup, that oh-so-ubiquitous Savage. In fact, you can probably do them in your sleep.
Well, if you want to shake things up a little, might we suggest something fashion-related? There’s a bunch of formats you can try depending on how much effort you want to put into your videos. These challenges range from super easy outfit changes to full production numbers that might require you to finally invest in that tripod you’ve been thinking about since you started out as a TikToker.
Here are 10 cool challenges you can consider:
Flip the switch
Ever wondered what it would be like to swap clothes with your best friend/boyfriend/brother? Well, it’s time to stop ruminating and see for yourself! The challenge starts with you in your regular outfits until you “flip the switch” and reappear in the other person’s clothes.
There’s plenty of fashion transformation videos on TikTok, and they only vary in song. One of the most popular song choices though is “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.” Yes, that song from Disney’s Cinderella! People usually film this by first wearing drab clothes (like pajamas) and then magically transforming into a super extra OOTD!
The Heart Evangelista challenge
Day 17 ate Mel said maglinis muna ako at sila naman ang magpapahinga and “that’s a command“ daw . Go!â™¬ Don't Start Now - Dua Lipa
Since Heart Evangelista posted the video above featuring 11 outfit changes at home, the TikTok community has dubbed this format as the “Heart Evangelista challenge.” People have already joined the bandwagon by doing laundry, washing dishes, and even cleaning cars in high heels! Check out some samples here.
In case you didn’t know, TikTok audio isn’t limited to songs and dubs. There are also spoken prompts that you can follow to easily create a video! One example is the “Calling All Fashion Fanatics” prompt that invites you to share your fave pieces.
“What I’d rather be wearing”
With many countries still on quarantine (ours included) due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people have been dreaming of outfits they would rather wear instead of their home clothes. But of course, no one’s stopping you from dressing up at home either!
Outfits of the week
If you’re the type who puts a lot of effort into your work-from-home outfits or your home looks in general, then this challenge is for you! You simply have to document all the OOTDs you usually wear in a week.
“My style changes every day"
Another version of the “weekly fashion” format is this challenge that was made for those with ever-changing fashion moods. We’re talking streetwear one day, basic girl the next, and avant garde the day after. Style chameleons, this one’s for you!
If you’ve never charted your personal style evolution before, then perhaps the time is now! To make this easy to film, people usually choose a certain period in their lives, like say high school, college, or the last five years up to the present.
Fashion through the decades
If you’ve got the time (and energy) to change into historically accurate costumes, then take on the “fashion through the decades” challenge that even has its own music! Really extra TikTokers even go as far as creating on-point hair and makeup looks.
TV show looks
Are you the type who juggles more than one TV series at a time? Give binge-watching a rest by putting on a little fashion show in your favorite characters’ iconic looks! Turn up the fun by choosing an upbeat song you can dance to.
How would your favorite Disney characters dress if they were modern-day people? Well, why don’t you flex your creativity and interpret their personal styles yourself! This TikToker created looks for princesses and villains, but you can go ahead to choose whichever character you want!
