It was only a matter of time before new trends were going to emerge during self-isolation.

The norm for trends that circulate on Instagram usually involve the it bag of the moment, the hottest new designer on the block or the must-have pair of shoes. All of these trends would ordinarily set you back at least a few hundred dirhams.

However, the latest craze hitting Instagram has emerged from two items everyone has: a cushion or pillow and a belt. With these two items you make the #QuarantinePillowChallenge or the #PillowChallenge.

Influencers have been showcasing their styling talents using a pillow as the main body of their outfit, and then a belt to cinch in the waist. Oh, and of course, to complete the challenge a photo, selfie or mirror photo must be taken.

We’ve rounded up some of our favourite looks to emerge from the challenge from Dubai influencers and more.
