I have a confession: My latest guilty pleasure, now that I'm spending most of my time at home, is TikTok. Last year, you couldn't have paid me (okay, actually, maybe) to jump on the Gen Z platform. But after a couple of weeks in isolation during the Covid-19 outbreak in my Brooklyn apartment, this millennial caved out of boredom and downloaded the popular video app. I'm embarrassed to share how many hours I've spent mindlessly scrolling through dance challenges, pranks, beauty hacks, and adorable pet videos. The short answer: A lot.

One thing I've noticed is that the majority of people on the app are sporting oversized sweatshirts, and pairing them with everything from bike shorts to leggings. Obviously loungewear has become the new normal for society since social distancing has turned everyone into homebodies; however, after a little digging, I discovered that oversized sweatshirts have long been a fashion trend on TikTok before quarantine comfy clothes became a thing (or a necessity). (

TikTok stars like Loren Grey, Charli D'Amelio, Addison Easterling (aka Addison Rae), and Avani Gregg are all known to rock oversized sweatshirts in their videos—and have been since before the "stay home" movement. But now, influencers and celebrities—including Jessica Alba, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Chiara Ferragni—who have resorted to TikTok for quarantine entertainment, have also taken note of the cozy trend.

It totally makes sense, considering oversized sweatshirts are perfect for lounging at home on the couch, but are still acceptable to wear running to the supermarket. And in the TikTok world, they are fashionable without making it look like you tried too hard (even if you did spend a bazillion hours trying to learn the 'Savage' dance choreography). Oversized sweatshirts strike the perfect balance between sporty and chic, while ensuring you're comfortable all day long. (

If you, like me, plan to spend your weekend practicing some retail therapy, you might want to make the TikTok trend your new WFH uniform. I'm now on the hunt for oversized sweatshirts, which will basically turn me into a mash-up of a 15-year-old TikTok-er and Ariana Grande in isolation (*face palm*)—but, I've accepted that. (
