Whenever we have the opportunity to kill a few trends with one stone, we take it. And, it turns out most fall dresses are like little fashion burritos, with all of the styles we're loving right now bundled into one easy-to-wear item. Football sleeves? Ditsy florals? Ruffles, suede, and asymmetric hemlines? Check, check, check.
So when you're ready to shop for next season, take note of how many trends you can tackle with just one piece — if you're going to be wearing this frequently, you want it function as an entire outfit all on its own. Because really, why should any dress only check one box? From here on out, all of our purchases have to be filling at least three.
It may seem like a tall order, but the 16 dresses ahead will have us covered all autumn long — just throw an ankle bootie into the mix and we can basically get dressed in the dark from September through November.
