You'll never find us turning down a trip to the mall - but a girl can only shop so much until her wallet starts to really feel the pain! While we're totally obsessed with all the new fall styles, it turns out that a ton of this summer's hottest trends will be carrying over into fall - hello, budget-friendly! Keep reading to see how we'll be re-styling our go-to summer pieces when cooler weather hits!

1. The Suede Skirt
How to style a suede skirt for fallICYMI, the '70s-inspired suede skirt ($62.54, New Look) was EVERYWHERE this summer - and fall doesn't show signs of cutting back on the retro look. Make it work for fall by pairing it with a snuggly grey turtleneck sweater ($60.77, Glamorous) and cropped moto jacket ($88, Nasty Gal), which will keep you warm in the crisp fall air. Switch out this summer's strappy sandal for a lace up ankle boot instead ($30.39, Target), which looks more autumn-appropriate. A studded chain bag ($24.90, Forever 21) in black adds a delicate, subtle edge!

2. Off-the-Shoulder Dress
How to wear an off-the-shoulder dress for fallThought you'd have to put away that breezy off-the-shoulder dress ($26, Boohoo) you've been wearing all summer? You might want to reconsider. For fall, give the dress-over-pants trend a try with cropped, distressed hem jeans ($49.90, Zara), a piece that is going to be HUGE this fall! Add some color with statement booties ($37.95, Shoebuy) in burgundy, a color that instantly makes any look more fall-appropriate. The off-the-shoulder neckline shows off a choker ($6.99, Forever 21) perfectly - top it all off with a felt hat ($14.90, Forever 21).

3. Floaty Shorts
How to wear flowy lace hem shorts for fallEspecially if they're denim or a darker color like gray or black, your summer shorts ($26, Boohoo) can easily transition into fall, as long as you bundle up on top! Get a French girl look by layering a classic striped tee ($28.05, Glamorous) under a long, slouchy grey cardigan ($12.99, H&M). It-girls like Leandra Medine are declaring this fall's biggest accessory to be the bandana scarf ($45, Revolve Clothing) - drape one around your neck for a little extra warmth! Block-heeled brogues ($80.62, ASOS) replace those Birkenstocks you've been rocking in warmer months.

4. Denim Culottes
How to wear culottes for fall
You may have been rocking your culottes ($68, Topshop) with a cute crop top all summer long, but for fall you'll want a more polished, tailored look. A V-neck sweater ($14.99, Blackfive) keeps you cozy - rein in your oversize look with a sharp sleeveless blazer ($31.24, New Look) for the ultimate layered look. Opt for flats with a pointed toe that lengthens your legs - a lace-up pair ($49.90, Zara) is super on-trend! Add a pop of pattern with a ladylike snake print bag ($13.59, Target).
