If you’ve moved on from your quarantine baking phase and want to pause on that 1,000-piece puzzle you’re working on, it may be time to try out one of the many fashion challenges going around on social media.

People on Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok have started using hashtags to encourage users to get creative with items around the house.

Celebrities are even jumping on the bandwagon, including Billy Porter, who was one of the first stars to challenge his fans.
