Everything you need to know about Autumn TikTok
By Alycia McNamara
This autumn, TikTok has been inspiring our day to day lives… here we’ll tell you everything you need to know about the best parts of TikTok and why you need to have them on your ‘For You’ page.
From pasta bakes to cheese boards and chai lattes to themed food spreads – ‘Foodtok’ will provide inspiration for all your daily meals, snacks, and party platters. Our favourite food account is @thisisplanetfood – you definitely need to check our their smores recipe!
Autumn and winter fashion is springing upon us! Trends seen on TikTok lately include velvet, anything sparkly, tweed, pearls, and layering. As usual, Tiktokers have been taking to the shops to show their best finds for the season! Many have been impressed with Zara’s AW21 collection, especially ‘that’ velvet black dress. We suggest you follow @graceandgracetiktok.
Is it too early to mention the C word? Never. The Christmas countdown is on! Tiktokers have already been picking their baubles, showing their gingerbread recipes and setting up their Christmas décor. Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’ is set to be a top TikTok sound this winter!
Autumn home décor is underway all over TikTok. These TikToks are usually in the form of a montage, on a rainy day with a cosy candle lit and a chunky knit blanket. Around Halloween, pumpkins were the go-to home décor, but on the lead up to Christmas, fairy lights and tartan blankets have been taking pride of place in many peoples homes. Definitely head to Elle Darby’s TikTok (@elledarby_) to see her ultimate home set up.
Day in the life
Day in the life TikToks are all the more exciting now lockdown is over. Student day in the life TikToks are usually made up of a trip to the library, the gym, charity shopping, and coffee shop dates. For an aesthetic Edinburgh day in the life, you should definitely follow @holliejeann who is the QUEEN of romanticising her life. Maybe you should even try making your own day in the life TikTok for serious man character vibes.
Autumn/Winter make up trends include all the glittery eyeshadow, festive red lipstick, eyeliner, and golden highlight. The party season has arrived! Make up artists have been taking this TikTok trend to the extreme with some already recreating the Grinch, @colleen.makeupp already has incredible Christmas eyeshadow looks up on her TikTok which are definitely worth a look at.
