You might be reticent to let go of your ethereal off-the-shoulder dresses and fitted jorts in favor of autumnally appropriate clothing, but the latest crop of blogger-approved fall 2015 fashion trends may change your mind. Forget the visions of lumpy sweaters and lackluster leggings dancing through your head, because this autumn's must-haves are infinitely more intriguing than the staid staples gathering dust at the back of your wardrobe. The '70s trend continues to rock on for autumn with mod mini skirts and peasant dresses, while shoppers with more rebellious inclinations will meet their match in figure skimming, bias-cut frocks and fringed wares.
If you're on the edge of your seat in anticipation of the season's trends, you're in luck: The blogger community is already championing the chicest trends of autumn on far-flung vacations and stateside. Whether you swoon for Atlantic-Pacific blogger Blair Eadie's twee looks with a twist or adore This Time Tomorrow blogger Krystal Bick's elegant bohemianism, autumn has a trend to suit your unique style. Scroll through for seven covetable autumn style trends you can adopt immediately or mix and match with your summer style staples, courtesy of your favorite fashion bloggers.
1. Off-The-Shoulder Peasant Dresses
Give the waning summer sun the cold shoulder with an off-the-shoulder peasant dress rendered in beautifully patterned fabric. Gladiator sandals polish off the piece for summer, while suede ankle booties and a wide, waist-cinching belt will take the look into autumn.
2. Mod Mini Skirts
Sculptural mod mini skirts are the fashion industry's gift to consumers who adore recycling key pieces season after season. The style pairs beautifully with a silken tank top or a sleeveless button-down blouson for humid days, and looks equally urbane when worn with a slim turtleneck for crisp fall weather.
3. Figure-Framing Fringe
Whether worn in the form of a cheeky knee-length skirt or a free-spirited cross body bag, fringe has taken the blogosphere by storm this season. Carry the trend well into fall by sporting fringed booties with skinny jeans, or dare to wear a western-inspired, fringed suede jacket to keep cozy.
4. High-Waisted Denim
Flared, cropped and straight-legged denim styles are all on-trend for autumn, with one key feature in common: they share a high-waisted fit. A far cry from mom jeans, 2015's high-rise styles are streamlined and sophisticated. Wear your pair with a tucked silk blouse for work or a lace tank for after-hours excursions.
5. Buttons Galore
Beautiful buttons are adorning skirts, dresses, and denim for autumn, but the trend is applicable for warm weather as well when matched with light layers. Christina Caradona of Trop Rouge demonstrates the sartorial power of pairing a bold, buttoned leather skirt with a loosely tucked button down blouse. Simply pop a knee-length coat and scarf over the top to transition the look to fall.
6. Streamlined Slip Dresses
Take an on-trend slip dress for a spin this summer with multi-strap heeled sandals like Kayture's Kristina Bazan. When the temperature dips in the fall, toss a tweed blazer and fedora atop your frock and finish the ensemble with flat ankle boots.
7. Luxurious Lace
A fabric that lends the wearer a prim and poised mien regardless of season, lace is a burgeoning trend for fall. A white lace frock with a calf-skimming skirt evokes vintage allure for summer soirees, while autumn calls for a midi pencil skirt paired with a relaxed cashmere sweater or shell to keep out the chill.
