Style chameleons and Harry Potter fans, this one is for you!

TikTok is taking the famous Hogwarts Houses – Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin, and Hufflepuff – and turning them into an exciting fan-based fashion challenge.

Whether you are into streetwear or avant garde, the only rule is to follow the houses colour schemes. This challenge that was made for those with ever-changing fashion moods.

2. Style evolution

If you have never charted your personal style evolution before, then perhaps now is the time.

To make this easy to film, choose a certain period in your life such as high school, varsity, or the last five years up to the present.

There are two ways to do embark on this challenge, by compiling images or videos. Either way, your audience need to see how much your fashion sense has grown.

3. Choose your player


This challenge started off as a quarantine meme that did its rounds on TikTok just a few weeks into lockdown.

Inspired by the 90s console game Mortal Kombat, TikTokers have put their personal spin on different characters, while gently swaying in a suspended motion.

The challenge is usually soundtracked by Gorillaz “Dirty Harry’’ or the opening titles from retro Nintendo classic Super Smash Bros. 

4. TV show looks

Enjoy juggling more than one TV series at a time? 

Give binge-watching a rest by putting on a little TikTok fashion show in your favourite characters’ iconic looks!

From Riverdale to Vampire Diaries, turn up the fun by personalising each look and choosing an upbeat song to model to.

5. Wardrobe tour

Get involved by digging into your wardrobe to try on a succession of different outfits before taking a single picture of each.

Edit these together to create a longer stop-motion clip to the soundtrack “Судно” by post-punk band Molchat Doma.

This challenge is a great way to re-think and get creative with unloved clothes you might not have considered for a while. Even verified TikTok influencer, Noen Eubanks, has gotten involved.

6. Disney character costumes

Tired of the traditional view of what a princess should look like? Then take on this challenge by recreating your favourite Disney princess characters in modern-day looks.

If princesses are not your thing, take a note out of other TikToker’s books and create looks for villains.

Whichever character you choose, don’t forget to show off your creativity and interpret the characters personal style.

7. Through the decades

Here TikTokers look to the aesthetic of different eras and interpret them in their own unique way. 

Starting off in the 50s, then running through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, before landing back in the 00s when low rise jeans reigned supreme.

The “fashion through the decades” challenge has gone so viral that it even has its own music.

Some TikTokers even go as far as creating on-point hair and makeup looks.

8. Weekend outfits

If you are the type who puts a lot of effort into weekend outfits, then all you need to do is document the OOTDs you wear on the weekend for various occasions.

This simple challenge is quite popular as the hashtag #weekendoutfits has received over 6.1 million views.

9. Don’t rush


Set to the tune “Don’t Rush” by Young T and Bugsey, the #DontRushChallenge has received over 880.3 million views.

In the videos, participants show off their natural looks before changing into fabulous going-out outfits.

This challenge works best with a group of people – that way you have someone to pass your makeup brush to (as seen on the TikTok video).

10. Fashion favs

♬ Calling All Fashion Fanatics – Billie Newland

In the “fashion favs” challenge, TikTok audio is not limited to mainstream music and dubs, which allows you to spice things up.

There are easy to use spoken prompts that will help you curate the video you envisioned. An example of this would be the “Calling All Fashion Fanatics” prompt that invites you to share your favourite pieces.

If following common prompts is not your style, then try doing your own voiceover whilst sharing your favourite fashion items.
