The lockdown led us to experiment on all kinds of leisurely activities to keep us entertained this year. One favorite social media past time we noticed celebs and influencers participate in were fashionable viral #challenges. What started out as simple fashion challenges on Tiktok quickly made their way to Instagram, Twitter, and even Facebook! Here are the social media video and photo trends that got every stylish celeb and influencer hooked. As this year comes to a close, it’s not too late to say #ChallengeAccepted.
Who doesn’t dream of being on the cover of Vogue? Our favorite influencers grabbed the chance to incorporate their own camera roll photos into this fashion challenge started by British Vogue. Blogger and mom-to-be Camille Co and YouTube sensation Mimiyuuuh’s high fashion shots looked like they actually landed on the cover.
Wipe It Down Challenge
This Wipe It Down challenge is a bit tricky to pull-off as it requires merging two separate videos and a change of outfits for every “wipe” in the mirror. A small towel and a spray bottle are the only things you need to take on this challenge. Laureen Uy and Mica Javier’s take were the glammed up versions we never knew we needed.
The Outfit Transition Challenge
If we counted it right, Heart Evangelista did a total of five outfit changes for this video. We spotted Heart donning a puff-sleeved top from Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2020 collection and a tweed jacket (worn as a top) from Chanel’s Spring 2020 collection. Her outfits change every second so you have to keep a keen eye on all her high fashion 'fits. No wonder this video got over 1 million views and 98,000 likes on TikTok!
Shoe Swap Challenge
New York-based Fashion blogger Jessica Wang took on the shoe swap challenge with ease. She started off with a casual athleisure look in sneakers that transitioned into her wearing an outfit worthy of a cool girl’s night out. The trick to nailing this challenge is snappy editing and statement 'fits that perfectly match your shoe of choice.
The girls of our Preview Clique worked this challenge to the nines and looked every bit like a Gucci by the end of their videos! According to TikTok, here’s how you can look like a Gucci model. Follow this checklist to take on this challenge before this year ends: a random colorful turtleneck, a shirt (don’t make it match!), a vest, a bright colored jacket, a pair of pants, a mini skirt, a headscarf, and sunglasses. Put on some heels with socks and don’t forget your pink lipstick. Always remember to layer, layer, layer!
Outfit of the Week Challenge
How about an outfit for every day of the week? Gabbi Garcia matches her daily outfit to the song "Dripeesha" by Todrick Hall. From an effortlessly chic outfit on Monday to dressing it up a notch for humpday, let Gabbi be your daily outfit inspo guide.
Though this Instagram photo trend initially came off as another aesthetic gimmick, it was actually tied to a very important advocacy. The act of posting black and white photos on the ‘gram was started by Turkish women as a symbol of defiance to the number of unjust femicides in their country.
