Writing about TikTok-viral fashion moments is a fun mix of business and pleasure for me. Often, I'll find myself scrolling through the app for pure entertainment, and I'll end up finding a story idea to publish on Who What Wear. That was the case when I came across Sal Croker's TikTok video that showed dozens of people in France wearing the exact same thing: a white or cream sweater with black Breton stripes. Croker lives in Rennes, France, a city in the Brittany region, but it's safe to say the sweater has a choke hold on the country at large.
The algorithm must know me well because I saw the video before it went viral, but now it's racked up nearly two million views, over 345,000 likes, and over 1500 comments. Scroll down to watch the video and shop for the popular sweater in question.
that’s the last time i’ll be wearing that x♬ Super Freaky Girl - Nicki Minaj

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
