Slouchy jeans and combat boots are essentially what we're planning to live in this fall. Style this combo with one of the summer's "It" tops, like the corset, for a seamless way to carry the trend into autumn. If there's a slight breeze, grab a leather blazer as your jacket, just like Irina Shayk did here.

With a Preppy Dress

Who said a ladylike smock can't go with grungy boots? Street style queen Dua Lipa is proving the two perfectly complement each other with this light academia collared dress and her clunky black Dr. Martens.
