Social media is great for finding out about and following new trends, but it is quite often a case of ‘hit or miss.’ Nonetheless that doesn’t mean the ‘misses’ won’t take off just as fast or grow any less of a cult following that the ‘hits’. We take a look at what is trending now in the land of social media and as to whether these trends are weird or wonderful, we will let you be the judge of that.

1. Red Bottomed Louboutin Nails

Yes you heard right, there is now a manicure available to match your Louboutin shoes (if your lucky enough to own a pair, and if you aren’t then your feet can now live vicariously through your hands) and it is currently the hottest beauty trend on social media. It all came about with the release of Christian Louboutin’s ‘Under Red’ nail polish applicator with allows women to take the red-soled shoe trend to the salon by painting the undersides of their nails red, just like the shoes. The results are being flaunted on social media with the hashtag #LouboutinNails. Matching your pedicure to your manicure has always made sense, but this takes things to a whole new level.

2. Love Your Lines

Women love to hate their stretch marks but now there is a viral campaign that is helping us to love them. Two Mothers hoping to make a difference in the world of female body image started the Instagram account, which is dedicated to celebrating stretch marks and fighting back against an airbrush culture that wants to hide imperfections. But Love Your Lines has become more than just an Instagram account or a hashtag on social media, it is a global initiative teaching women to proudly embrace the body they are in and all it’s flaws. Gorgeous supermodel Chrissy Teigen is one of the many women who have gotten on board the trend, recently sharing a photo of her ‘stretchies’ on Instagram. This social media trend is promoting positive body image one stretch mark at a time, and for that we thank it.

3. #LiterarySwag

Yahdon Israel is a writer who lives in New York City and has started a social media hashtag aimed at encouraging more people to read. He started off posting photos and videos on his personal Instagram and Twitter accounts of people who were reading (literary) and also looking stylish (swag) whilst doing so, accompanied with the hashtag #LiterarySwag, and it has taken off. Yahdon is attempting to redefine what is ‘cool’ and what people think about reading and says literature and style can definitely coexist.
