The 5 Fall Dress Trends To Know Now & Plot To Buy

If you took a quick scan of our fall wardrobe thus far, you'd find pretty party dresses, eye-catching accessories, and other visually stunning pieces that clearly say, "This person shopped only with their eyes and not with the weather in mind." But, even though we're going the practical route with our everyday wares, that doesn't mean our picks will be any less gorgeous than those special-occasion numbers. In fact, some of our favorite silhouettes are looking mighty fine for fall: knit minis for the still-hot days of September, midi-dresses for a bit more coverage, and, of course, the long-awaited sleeved numbers (covered arms, we've missed you). Ahead, we break down the main dress trends to check off the shopping list. We've never been more excited for the start of Pumpkin Spice season.
