20 Catchy Outfit Combo Ideas For The “Boots & A Slick Back Bun” TikTok Trend

If you’ve been on TikTok at all recently, you’ve likely seen what has been dubbed the “boots and a slick back bun” trend. Basically, the trend involves a group of people in a circle, and then someone goes in the middle and a catchy song is made up to describe parts of their outfit (such as the combo that started it all, boots and a slick back bun). It’s sung by the group a couple of times while the one in the spotlight does a sassy dance move, and then everyone moves on to the next person. It’s absolutely hilarious and surprisingly pure for the app (which is known for its drama!), and the songs are seriously so catchy.

Of course, it all started with the video posted by @maisieisobel_ featuring the aforementioned boots and a slick back bun (which is a top tier combo, btw), but it has since evolved to all sorts of outfit details, including one of my personal favorites, “sambas and a little red bag,” of course referring to the super popular summer shoe, the Adidas Sambas. There is a certain rhythm to the song (it’s hard to describe but will make sense if you watch any of the videos) that makes it easier for the first item to be just one word, and the second to be more descriptive or use more words. You could easily sing the song to describe any outfit you’re wearing, even just a lounge day outfit (“sweats and a little tank top”). 

But if you’re looking for some easy ways to do this trend, I’ve compiled a bunch of ideas — feel free to steal them for a TikTok of your own!
