Fall fashion can mean a lot of different things. For some, it’s a chance to go all out with a vivid color palette, printed dresses, and bold accessories. For others, it’s time to don a demure ensemble for a more elegant look. The trick is to find a look that works for you—but as for us, we’re all about the colorful fall dresses that pop against a backdrop of fall leaves and pumpkins.
The 10 Fall Dresses that You Must Have
Fall is here. This means it’s time to curl up with a good book, a pair of boots, good chai, good wine, and a cozy sweater. However, it’s important to take a step back and appreciate the four different seasons that make up this beautiful time of year. For that reason, here are 10 must-have fall dresses.
1. Long Sleeve Wrap Dress
The trend for fall and winter is to wear long sleeve dresses with opaque sleeves. The reason for this is to hide your arms from the weather as you walk outside, but does this style look cool in the cooler months? In general, wrap dresses have been popular for many years but have been revamped with modern design elements to create a sophisticated look perfect for the season.
2. Mila Velvet Wrap Dress
The Mila Velvet Wrap Dress is a soft, loose, and comfortable dress made of sheer, smooth fabric. The dress has a deep V-neckline with lace inserts on either side, and the backless design will allow the wearer to show off her skin. The sheer fabric has a scooping, flattering effect that curves around the body, accentuating the figure.
3. Mock Wrap Sweater Mini Dress
Everyone needs a good fall outfit, and you can never go wrong with a mock wrap sweater mini dress. They look great with a pair of booties, a fun blazer, and a great pair of heels or wedges. This fall, a great way to embrace the style is with a mini dress from a well-known brand.
