There are fall dresses, and then there are extra-long fall dresses, and no — these two categories were not created equally. Shorter dresses are ideal for showing off your autumn-ready, knee-high leather boots. A maxi dress, on the other hand, brings the drama with floor-sweeping hems that can keep you covered as temperatures drop. And at the end of the day, more dress simply means more to love about the style, be it of the sweater, prairie, or trench variety.
If you're looking for the perfect fall dress that goes the extra mile, we've got you covered. Since there are thousands of options out there and only so many weeks till fall, we went to the experts.
