Gone Viral: The 8 Fall Trends That Have Blown Up on TikTok

Now that we've already dived into the fall trends that made their way down the runways earlier this year, it's time to take note of which have made it to the masses. While Instagram curates a feed based on who you follow, TikTok's algorithm will lead you to fashion people you wish you had been following sooner. While I've been careful to not surpass my screen-time limit, I have been scrolling just enough to see the fall pieces that have been capturing everyone's attention. 

The first day of fall has arrived, so I've rounded up the top eight trends I keep seeing on my TikTok feed. Of course, I'm also providing a little shopping assistance by finding stellar market options for each trend. Below, take a look at the best spring styles on TikTok—from edgy pieces that'll make you feel teenage nostalgia to oversize bags that'll fit everything you need.

Ballet Flats

TikTok seems to have mixed views toward ballet flats, but Who What Wear gives the trend a stamp of approval. 

Maxi Skirts



While micro minis had a strong hold on the internet, it's the anthesis of the style that has my (and TikTok's) attention for fall. It's also a lot easier to style, so bonus points there.

Silver Details



Metallics can sometimes seem tacky, but that's not the case here. Whether it's a pair of statement boots or a locket, a silver accent will act as an instant cool touch to any outfit.

Pleated Skirts



TikTok is all about following different style aesthetics, from balletcore to academia. The latter brought pleated skirts to the table, and the schoolgirl-inspired look isn't going anywhere soon. If you're daring enough, try a skirt-and-pant combo like the outfit above for a unique layered look.

Edgy Dressing

I predicted that the 2014 Tumblr aesthetic would make a return, and it seems that I was correct. Bring on the leather jackets, chunky boots, and head-to-toe black this fall. 

Oversize Bags

While you may still come across the occasional tiny bag, most of the fashion set is opting for larger options as their everyday bag of choice.

Bomber Jackets

My fellow editors have been hinting at the resurgence of bomber jackets for quite some time now, and TikTok's gotten the memo.

Cargo Bottoms



While I've been seeing more '90s-style pieces pop up on my TikTok feed, it would be impossible to run away from Y2K entirely. If you're looking to achieve the casual yet cool look, a cargo skirt or utility-inspired pants will help you do it.
