For me, getting dressed often revolves around foolproof outfit formulas. Yep, I love to experiment, but I'm also a major outfit repeater. Once I find something that works, I know that it's an easy way to get dressed without putting too much thought into what I'm wearing. This summer, some of my favorite combos have been linen pants and tube tops, padded-shoulder tees with wide-leg denim shorts, linen dresses with strappy sandals, and bodysuits with slip skirts—outfits I've worn again and again without thinking twice. Looking to fall, though, what are the easy looks I'll be trying out?
As a big skirt person, I've been thinking about how I'll transition some of my favorite pieces to the next season. Looking to some of my favorite street style looks, I already have plenty of fall outfits with skirts earmarked to put my own spin on in the coming months. Ahead, see the skirt-and-shoe pairings I'll be trying out for myself soon because I love a great outfit shortcut. Trust me—these will never go out of style.

If you opt for a leather skirt, try a longer version like this one from Nanushka. To offset the longer length, style it with a pair of knee-high boots in a fun animal print to add some dimension to a neutral outfit.
Chunky knee-high boots are destined to be one of the biggest shoe trends this fall. While you may not immediately think to pair them with a miniskirt, this outfit makes it all too clear how cool they look together. Add a turtleneck and an oversize blazer and you have the perfect fall look.
Ribbed knits are one of my favorite essentials for fall, hands down. If you're looking to adopt them like I am, here, Lisa Aiken shows how to pull them off. Adding a pair of zebra pumps to a matching ribbed skirt set, she adds the perfect element of fun to an otherwise neutral look.
As a self-confessed lover of neutrals, this might be one of my favorite looks to try out for fall. While neutral can be safe, Anna Vitiello's outfit is anything but that. Mixing a beige skirt with two-tone boots, she proves that neutrals can be just as dynamic as bolder shades.
