Sure, you can scroll through TikTok and find the latest dance craze or mouth-watering recipe, but you can also come across the hottest beauty and fashion trends.
Fashion and beauty expert Makho Ndlovu stopped by the 3rd hour of TODAY to show give us the scoop on what exactly is trending on TikTok right now, along with all of the ways to get in on the hype before these hot finds are gone — some of these viral picks have already surpassed one million views.
Though Gen Z seems to dictate some of the trends on the app (like the revival of the mom jean), don’t be fooled — anyone can pull them off. From snakeskin booties to a beauty tool that can combat dry skin, Ndlovu found everything you’ll actually want before fall arrives.

Everyone knows garden gnomes love to travel. This costume is perfect for this first big excursion traversing the neighborhood. It’s kitschy, it’s cute, it’s cozy, and since garden gnomes are a little bit creepy, it’s just right for a little Halloween hair-raising, without being too scary.
Get ready for admirers to go batty over this cute little costume. The snap-bottom onesie will make for easy access, should any baby-style “tricks” occur, and the bat-eared beanie will help keep them warm.
Sure, we love our drop earrings and ankle socks, but once fall and winter roll around, our go-to accessory tends to be a scarf. Aside from providing warmth, this little extra is often our outfit’s missing piece, taking looks from meh to whoa. However, we have gotten tripped up before, struggling to find the right way to style one.
There is a decidedly nostalgic vibe to a lot of the upcoming fall trends for kids.
Maybe this retro spirit is being driven by our longing for a simpler, safer time, when stylish students were more concerned with outfits than with masks. And yet, for every old-school classic making a comeback (think Clueless plaids, vintage rock tees) there are fresh looks to inspire future fashion fans. Here’s to brighter days ahead.

Fluffy and rainbow bright (but cruelty-free, of course), soften the back-to-school blow with cuddly and colorful outerwear.
Disney’s fashion fantasia was such a hit, a sequel is in development. But while we wait to see if Emma Stone will reprise her role as the titular Brit-punk baddie, these Dalmatian-chic looks should hit the spot. (We even found dotty dad sneakers!)
TikTok has spoken: Skinny jeans are out; baggy jeans are in. And you know who’s not mad about it? A generation of kids enjoying the comforts of roomy denim. It’s time to junk their jeggings. High waists. Wide legs. Can’t lose.

COMMANDO Half Slip
Sometimes you don’t need the whole slip. Try a half style for the lightest layer possible! This type works well for skirts and dresses that could just use some extra lining.
Say hello to the most timeless swim wear silhouette: the high-waist swimsuit. These two pieces are mad comfy and effortlessly cool. They offer more coverage than a typical string bikini and, like your favorite mom jeans, the cut helps to keep the waist snatched (if that’s the look you’re going for).
A good high-rise swimsuit offers up the perfect in-between, with both the benefits of a tiny bikini and a full-coverage suit. Personally, I will wear nothing else–and once you try your first set, you’ll 100% see why. Shopping and inspo ahead, fam!
If we had to choose one fashion trend that we couldn’t live without, it’d be athleisure. If you haven’t heard the term, athleisure is simply a combination of the words “athletic” and “leisure” and describes a trend that’s enabled athletic clothing to transcend everyday life. Yoga pants and comfy hoodies are no longer only for the gym — people are now wearing activewear around the clock for a variety of activities. As athleisure continues to grow in popularity, it’s time to get your hands on some cute and comfortable activewear sets.
We’ve rounded up the best activewear sets on the market right now based on consumer reviews, price points and material features. These sets are great for both inside and outside of the gym. Wear them together or mix and match your favorites — after all, there are no rules in athleisure.
