The Quarantine Pillow Challenge sees fashionistas go naked except for bedding in latest bizarre at-home Instagram trend


IT SEEMS some people have more time on their hands than others during the lockdown.

Fashionistas have been stripping naked except for teeny bits of bedding in the #QuarantinePillowChallenge on Instagram.

The latest bizarre social media trend to pop up during the coronavirus pandemic requires people to pose with just a pillowcase covering their modesty.

Most stylish participants have been belting their cushions around their waist so that it resembles a minidress.

Many have chosen to style up their looks with designer accessories - including sunglasses, heels and handbags, as well as full make-up and a blow-dry.

Some, however, have finished off their DIY outfits with cosy isolation-appropriate head towels, eye masks and slippers.

It has been an opportunity for many social media fans to show off their bedding - which as well as classic white, also include some very colourful, fluffy designs.

Swedish fashion blogger, Gergana Ivanova - who runs the account @myforteisfashion - opted to don an IKEA lavender pillow case, styled with a Zara belt, New Balance trainers and a PrettyLittleThing handbag.

One person wrote: "I needed this laugh and inspiration."

Another shared: "This pillow challenge is the best."

And a fourth added: "This is great."

The bedroom-inspired trend comes after the hashtags #HomeCouture and #DressUpFriday have also been gaining popularity online among the style crowd.

People are obsessed with tie-dying their clothes from while in lockdown and it’s so easy
