Once upon a time, I used to pull all my fashion inspiration from Instagram and Pinterest. Now, there’s a new social media platform to add to the list. You guessed it: TikTok. TikTok has really come through with the fashion game and these Black fashion creators are proof! Gone are the days when the app was only good for viral dance content and funny skits—now, it’s one of my go-to spots when I’m looking for styling tips, outfits ideas and more.
The best part about TikTok is how easy it is to find a multitude of influencers and content creators. But although it has its benefits, you don’t have to rely on the algorithm to find them for you. All I had to do was comb through some hashtags to find my daily dose of fashion inspo! As you use the app more and more, you tend to learn who really resonates with you, and with fashion in particular, there are certain TikTok creators that have really nailed their style and know exactly how to share it with their audiences in a captivating way.
Below, I’m hyping up eight Black fashion content creators on TikTok that are worth the follow. Of course, this isn’t a comprehensive list—there are a lot more talented, stylish creators out there. But in case you haven’t made it to fashion TikTok yet, these eight creators are great accounts to start with.
You thought having your 15 minutes-turned-one-hour TikTok break was bad? Prepare for that one hour to turn into two or three, minimum. TikTok was already addictive before, but these content creators make me want to scroll forever. So go ahead, press Follow and prepare to take notes. You may lose hours out of your day to the app, but you’ll thank me later when your fashion game reaches a whole new level.
