Fall Dresses

Hand-Picked Fall Dresses For Every Occasion

I love wearing dresses in autumn! It seems that designers go all out during this time, so I never have an issue finding the right fall dress for just the right occasion. Even if I go for the plainest dress available, I know it won’t take much to zhuzh it up since I can layer it with a cardigan. All that’s missing is the right pair of shoes—and perhaps a belt—to bring it all together. 

I don’t know about you, but talking about fall dresses is making me smile inside (and I might be toggling between screens and buying one right now). Oh—and since I am currently shopping online, let me share what I’ve found so far—and even a few dresses I buy on repeat.

Let’s begin with the classic shirt dress.
