There is nothing as comfortable or reassuring as pulling your favorite, go-to dress out of the closet. With ingenious laying, the proper styling, and fantastic accessories, you can easily make your dresses as fabulous for the Fall as they were during the summer. This ensures we can justify splurging on timeless designer dresses. The right dress will quickly prove its worth as a wardrobe staple for multiple seasons. Check out our top five drop-dead gorgeous dress styles for this Fall.
We aren’t thinking of nicking your boyfriend’s shirt here. Nevertheless, we are sure he will think you look just as alluring as if you did throw on his favorite button-up. Shirt dresses are known for their short hemline, loose fit, and buttons down the front. While they are available in an infinite number of patterns and colors, we think that this Fall is the time to elevate the shirt dress from comfortable to classy. Add a knitted sweater vest and a pair of loafers to complete the androgynous look for autumn.
Many people don’t know that a midi dress is simply any dress where the hem rests at calf length. This certainly opens up the title to a vast array of dresses; however, the reason that we love the midi dress for Fall is that it is ideal for pairing with your favorite below-the-knee boots. You’ll show just a hint of skin when you’re walking while remaining nice and warm as the temperatures take a nosedive.
A sleeveless or short-sleeved, knitted sweater dress is ideal for cooler autumn climates where the temperature can be hit or miss. Pair your sweater dress with a blazer in your air-conditioned office and go bare-armed when basking in the mid-afternoon sunshine. A lightweight silk scarf and gold jewelry will boost your look and ensure you stay fashion-forward this Fall.
The A-Line dress is flattering on almost every figure and hugs the female form in all the right places. An A-line dress is easy to wear and be active in. The flare comes from the waste making a roomier bottom half hiding parts many women prefer. To update the look for this Fall, accentuate your waist with a bold belt and pair the look with a classic handbag that never goes out of style.
We love a wrap dress at any time of year; however, they come into their own with Fall weather. The V-neck and cinched waist look fantastic on almost every body type and particularly on curvier figures. It’s no wonder that the infamous Diane von Furstenberg dress has changed little in the last 50 years. Look for natural, warm fabrics like silk, cotton, or wool. For the most up-to-date look, check out bold patterns and pair the dress with solid-colored accessories.
If you invest in a few classic, designer dresses before Fall, have fun with different accessories and layering to make dozens of different outfits. This will ensure you are confident and stylish as you navigate the Fall fashion season.
