TikTok's algorithm is a powerful thing in that it's able to predict the exact sort of content we're craving at precisely the moment we want to see it. (It's no wonder the Gen Z–favorite platform has over one billion users.) Knowing that, I can't exactly act surprised that my entire FYP is currently made up of trendy winter outfits that are just waiting to be copied now that the temperatures are starting to drop. And if you too split your time between online shopping and scrolling on TikTok, I'm sure that your feed looks similar.
Naturally, I decided to dig deeper, increasing my screen time in order to find out which winter trends were the most prevalent on the platform. Now that I've narrowed down the list, it felt only fitting that I share my findings with you. There's comfort in solidarity after all. Scroll down to shop the seven winter trends that are taking up the most space on my TikTok FYP, not to mention in my mind.
Shackets, or shirt-jacket hybrids, aren't just wildly popular on TikTok for winter—they're blowing up everywhere else too. The draw? They're cozy, warm, and perfect for layering, not to mention extremely elevated and stylish. Can you tell we're obsessed with shackets?
Puffers for winter aren't exactly new or groundbreaking, but on TikTok, it isn't the neutral shades we're used to seeing (think black, light gray, off-white, and chocolate brown) that are reigning supreme. Rather, the big shades for winter are vibrant and saturated, with reds, greens, yellows, and blues looking to be the big winners.
Goodbye, beanies. Hello, fuzzy and furry bucket hats. This genre of cozy headgear has been trending in fashion for quite some time now, but it appears to have hit its stride on TikTok of late, with basically every fashion-minded user on the platform donning one of these atop their heads. Stay warm, kids.
Another furry friend to add to your winter wardrobe, according to TikTok? Fuzzy-collar coats circa the '70s. Of course, we really have Saks Potts to thank for this trend. However, more and more brands are catching on to the style, as are our favorite content creators on the platform. Oh, how we love a throwback trend.
Leather and faux-leather blazers have become as much a staple in our wardrobes as moto styles of late, especially among the style stars on TikTok. Plus, because a leather style is much warmer than your standard-issue blazer, these will keep you warm and toasty throughout the chillier months.
What list of TikTok fashion trends would be complete without a low-rise moment? Recently, the app's fashion elite have been adding trousers to their mix of low-rise jeans, either folding over a pair of Dickies to make them low-rise or going straight to the real thing and buying pants that are designed to sit low on the waist. Love 'em or hate 'em, low-rise pants are here to stay.
