Is it just me or are there more challenges on Instagram than you can keep up with right now? That's not to say I'm not down for them though; many have been organised to raise money for great causes, or just to distract us and inject a little bit of fun into our lives. The latest is a fun fashion one that I've been lolling over during my Instagram scrolls; but what is the pillow challenge and how can you give it a go?
TBH, the pillow challenge is pretty damn simple, and is perhaps the easiest one to get involved with on social media currently. It simply involves taking a pillow from your bedroom, and attaching it to yourself with a belt to make it look as though you're wearing it.
The hilarious, slightly wacky, idea started amongst fashion bloggers, who amazingly managed to pull together a pillow outfit and still look chic (oh, to be that cool...). And I predict the challenge will be sweeping through celebs-ville in no time, particularly as Halle Berry has just become one of the first high profile A-listers to share her own pillow pic.
The star posted an image of her rocking a black pillow case yesterday, alongside the caption, 'You already KNOW you couldn’t keep me from the #PillowChallenge,' finished off with a laughing emoji. While I'm hardly surprised, I sort of can't believe how major Berry looks in her creative ensemble; it literally looks like a Friday night LBD, complete with stiletto heels and a chic black hat.
The hashtag #PillowChallenge now has over 200,000 posts, and it's not just fashion bloggers who are getting involved.
Whether you want to give it a go and have your pillow outfit look chic or totally hilarious, this is a fun Insta challenge that'll brighten up your followers' lockdown days. In other words: give it a go!
