8 of the best fashion TikTok accounts to follow now

These days we are looking to TikTok for fashion inspiration – here are eight of our favourite accounts to follow


TikTok may be synonymous with viral dances and challenges, but the video app is creating a solid fashion community.

Unlike Instagram, TikTok doesn’t take itself too seriously, meaning the fashion on offer doesn’t either. It’s light, fun, edgy, and contemporary.

The editing elements mean snappier tutorials and better visuals from creatives with some serious style credentials.

And we can’t get enough of it.

Here are eight accounts you should follow now.
