We've been getting pumped about autumn for what has felt like ages — we started ogling ankle booties in, oh, maybe July? — but now that the crisp weather is upon us, the hard part is deciding what to wear first. Our preferred go-to? Skirts that can morph from casual-cool to rock-and-roll-ready with just a few styling tweaks.
So, when we spied three local bloggers sporting sublime skirts, we got majorly inspired to recreate their looks. Whether you like your hemlines short and flouncy or long and fishtail-y, we're pretty sure you'll dig these outfits — and our handy guide to pulling them off yourself!
We're crushing on this winning combo of feminine softness and rocker edge on District Sparkle blogger Meaghan. A refined black-and-white palette makes this look easy to pull off, and by adding tights, you can wear it well into the cooler months.

Blogger Dominique of Stiletto Esq. is a pro at making trendy pieces her own, so take notes on this casual-cool getup. She puts a unique spin on an asymmetric midi-skirt by adding a Breton-stripe top and leopard belt — two classic pieces that, when paired together, inject some quirky personality into the mix. As a bonus, you can still snag her exact bag online!

Can't figure out how to style fall's cheeky animal sweater? Take a cue from La Petite Marmoset blogger Katherine and dress it up with a pencil skirt, statement jewelry, and sky-high heels. We like how she made a totally trendy piece look more grown-up and polished by putting an emphasis on tailoring.
