Styling your first-day-of school outfit may look a little different this fall. With most schools continuing online for the remainder of 2020, it's looking like another semester of Zoom calls and social distancing may be in store. If that's you, take heart; managing stress and maintaining normalcy is still possible. Your friends may not see your cute new 'fits in person, but quarantine hasn't kept the fashion community from plunging into the back-to-school spirit. Take inspiration from these muses on top-trending looks for the fall, and plan your virtual mood board. Because if there's ever been a time to experiment and discover your new style, it's while you can still roll out of bed at 8:29 and head to first period.
