Slay Virtual Back-to-School With These Style Inspos

Judy Lee Nov 16, 2022

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. 

the look: uniform-inspired 

We've been obsessed with the boarding school-esque ensembles that's been taking Instagram by storm. Putting a sporty spin on these preppy looks with vintage rugby shirts, polos and sky-high platform sneakers brings back the comfort to the signature uniform of blazers and pleated skirts. The best part about virtual class? No more dress codes—you can dress it up or down, whatever your mood. Check out how these muses styled our most popular sporty-prep pieces:

@mimizow is channeling our favorite 90s school girl Britney in the KENSINGTON CHARCOAL PLEATED SKIRT

@ya.stacey is ready to rock the streets in the CORSET VEST SHIRT DRESS

the look: Short suits

Suits, suits, suits. We've been all for the matching suit sets this summer, and these short-sleeve (or no-sleeve!) pieces are some of our favorites. They may be breezy, but they still have lots of time left in our wardrobes before the cold weather hits (especially in the sunnier tropical areas). Want to feel as put-together as fall but effortless as summer? Go for a short suit set like these muses. Deck out in full-ensembles or mix and match individual pieces with casual pairings. It's an investment that'll last far beyond the season.

the look: daytime lingerie

Inner wear as outerwear has been a major 2010s trend both on and off the runway, and with the current stay-at-home circumstances, it's looking like it'll transition well into 2020. See how our muses styled our lacey lingerie slips and silky pieces in and out of the house. You'll be dying to give your old pajamas a luxury upgrade.

the look: slashed denim

Ripped knees? Not just for the playground. Distressed denim will probably never grow old for at least another decade, and we're all about it. This summer we've seen some of the coolest (and cutest) takes on staple jeans as comfort once again rules our home wardrobes. You won't want to take these off even when quarantine's over.
