Are you ready for ‘Twee’ time again? TikTok has seen some unique trends recently, and now that 2022 has arrived, so has the interesting ‘Twee’ trend.
TikTok trends aren’t necessarily limited to TikTok but are also spread throughout multiple social media platforms, including Instagram. With ‘Tiktok,’ trends are a thing. However, trends come and go, as evidenced by the recent arrival of ‘Twee.’
Are you familiar with the word? If you were a Tumblr regular in the mid-2010s, you were probably aware of the twee aesthetics. And if you’re not we’re here to explain everything about this fascinating trend so that you, too, can join.
Not only people are following this trend, but the queen of ‘twee’ herself is getting on board. Let’s get started.
What’s All The Fuss About The ‘Twee’ Trend On Tiktok?
Twee is a British slang from the 1900s that was a misspelling of the word ‘sweet.’ Since the 90s, the indie subculture has welcomed the aesthetic, with a plethora of music, art, and movie based on its inspirations.
The Twee aesthetic has its origins in twee-pop, a subgenre of indie-pop that was popular in the 80s and 90s, rose to prominence in the mid-aughts and lasted until the mid-2010s.
The Twee times were easier. An age when being fashionable entailed being anti-cool, and being a hipster meant proclaiming to everyone that you were not a hipster.
Of course, when the look became more fashionable, we became tired of it soon. But now the ‘twee’ trend is back on TikTok. And you know what it means right? Everyone’s doing it.
The look is whimsical, with shift dresses, colorful collars, cute vintage-type skirts, leggings, spectacular sunglasses, and much more.
‘Twee’ Is Overtaking TikTok
This is a trend that everyone is doing on TikTok. Why Don’t You Let Me Stay Here?” is the sound TikTok users use to display off their Twee appearance and discuss the possibility of a Twee return to form.
Over 5,000 videos have been created in response to the music, and the hashtag ‘twee’ has received over 40 million views.
TikTok users are also discussing which twee should be reinstated. Now you know why Twee is overtaking TikTok. Also, a lot of users are demanding to bring other trends back too.
