There’s nothing we love more than a throw-on-and-go dress and being the first to the newest trends is a dependable tactic for standing out. Since Memorial Day, your summer favorites have been heavily rotated through, making now a prime time to seek out fresh styles that work now, as well as in the new season (yep, fall is right around the corner).
As has been the case with many recent trends, fall dresses span the nostalgia scale from romantic silhouettes á la the Old West to ’90s-inspired cuts (seriously, the fashion industry just can’t quit this decade.) Whether you’re a mini, midi or maxi dress enthusiast (or you’re the versatile kind with a penchant for all three), there’s a version for everyone with bold shapes and prints leading the way.
So, if you’re on the hunt for a new night-out go-to or have your sights set on a fresh wear-anywhere frock, ahead, five fall dress trends to start wearing ASAP.
Animal Print Dress
From leopard spots to zebra stripes, fall’s leading motif comes with animal instincts.
Ultra-feminine shapes like puff shoulders, corseted waists and sweeping skirts capture fall’s Little House On The Prairie vibe.
Twist Front Dress With Kimono Sleeve
The '80s remain and, this season, it’s all about the mega-watt mini.
Adam Lippes Floral-Print Hammered Silk-Crepe Midi Dress
Moody Floral Print
In place of wispy white dresses and pretty pastels, fall’s florals are dark and deeply romantic.
Printed Square Neck Fit and Flare Dress
Taking a cue from the '90s, square necklines are a fresh shape to embrace.
