If you find yourself wary about shopping right now — simply because you're not sure when you'll start really seeing people again (never mind hugging them) — you're not alone. But dressing for yourself is more than OK; in fact, we highly encourage it. With a handful of fashion trends bubbling up on Instagram, there's certainly no shortage of inspiration, either. As industry experts, we're here to let you know what's sticking around far beyond the days of sheltering in place and working from home, if that's important to you, and gives you more of a reason to add to your cart.
Led by some of our favorite celebrities to follow for outfit ideas — like Yara Shahidi, Barbie Ferreira, Salem Mitchell, Emma Chamberlain, and more — we're pinpointing the looks that have staying power through 2021, not because they're trickling down from the runways but because they help us convey our personality through our clothing, which is really the only way we're interested in dressing right now. Scroll through to get the full rundown on these trends, from the pleated tennis miniskirt to the resurgence of '90s sport brands we want to wear loudly and proudly, and shop one standout pick from each category.
