As we begin to reunite with all the wonderful aspects of cozy season (hot beverages, retreats to log cabins, and, of course, candles galore), we're also pulling out our fall sweaters and timeless cardigans. Just don't forget about one-and-done frocks as well. Dress season did not end with the warm weather. There are a number of fabulous fall dresses for women just waiting to be paired with your favorite chunky loafers or the season's trendiest boots. But which one to pick?
While there are some fall trends you can count on to make a comeback as soon as temperatures start to drop (we're talking business-core looks, off-the-shoulder styles, and neutral hues), others are more of the minute, like pleats, ruffles, dramatic sleeves, and fall's new It color: red. Whether you want an everyday piece, a fall wedding guest dress, or a work-approved style, we turned to shoppers to find the top picks for the season ahead. All of the options ahead are easy pieces to layer with fall's trendiest of boots and coziest of outerwear for a fabulous look. They've left a plethora of ratings and in-depth reviews across the best-selling styles from all our go-to retailers, like Free People, Anthropologie, the newly revamped Abercrombie & Fitch, and more. We've followed the proverbial breadcrumbs in order to round up the 14 best fall dresses for women on the internet right now.
