7 Dresses You’ll Live in This Fall

by Julie Urban

Sure, summer is great with lots of family time, summer vacations, and warm sunny weather. But when you’re sweating all the time and nursing your sunburnt skin, how can you dress for anything but comfort and to keep cool? Fall is the best time in fashion and this year, designers do not disappoint with transitional pieces you can wear now through November! Take a look at these 7 dresses you will live in this fall (and won’t break the bank!).

Dress with Chunky Knit Sleeves, Zara, $29.90

Most people are scared to wear white after Labor Day. Here is a public service announcement: you can wear white whenever you want!!! Take this dress for example. Pair it with booties, mid-calf boots, or thigh-high boots and leggings as you get into the colder months.

Cami Slip Dress in Oversized Floral Asos, $53

Anything you can wear alone or throw a leather jacket on to complete a look is an absolute must have. This looks great with flats, heels, booties and can be worn alone for warmer September days and paired with a jacket for cool October nights.

Long Sleeve Striped Dress J. Crew, $88

How can you go wrong with stripes or J.Crew? This classic can be worn with sneakers with a tied jean jacket around the waist for a cool daytime look that won’t sacrifice being on trend for comfort.

Off the Shoulder Poplin Dress Zara, $49.90

Off the shoulder styles are perfect for year round dressing and this dress is no exception. Pair it with pants as it gets chilly in November, or wear it alone in September and October.

Kimchi Blue Ruffle Midi Wrap Dress, Urban Outfitters, $69

You know what’s always a good idea? Wearing a wrap dress. Universally figure-flattering, these are a staple in any woman’s wardrobe. The colors are perfect for fall, dressing up with mules or open toe sandals for warm September days that will perfectly transition through November with booties or knee high boots.

AQUA Smocked Bell Sleeve Dress Bloomingdale’s, $88

Bell sleeved? Check! Smocked? Check! Two big trends for this year checked off in one dress is a winner as far as I’m concerned. Smocked dresses are always a welcome addition to any wardrobe because they’re stretchy and comfortable while still looking more polished that a stretch-knit jersey dress. These colors are perfect for fall and will have every head turning in your direction!

Pleated Dress H&M, $24.99

Another big trend for fall is pleats. They can be hard to wear and still be flattering, but this dress does the trick! This straight cut is wearable for any body type and can be worn with flats or looks great for a night out as well.
