If you're getting a little tired of your same old routine, take inspiration from these chic and easy fall outfit ideas that take queues from your favorite summer trends. All of these summer pieces will take you straight into the fall (so you don't have to feel bad about adding to your wardrobe as those summer staples go on clearance, of course!).

1. Chambray shirt and a short printed skirt

Stay cool and stylish by mixing a pretty top with a boho bottom. A combo like this works great dressed down with sneakers, or you can easily dress it up with a statement necklace and pretty sandals. On a colder day, add a sweater.

2. Pencil skirt and a cute, boxy tee

This chic mix of business and casual will take you anywhere, from a lunch date to a shopping trip to your desk. A pencil skirt is a great investment because they go well with a variety of tops, from tanks to blouses. Swap the strappy sandals for booties as the temps drop.
