The chill in the air on a brisk autumn morning might tempt you to grab a hoodie and sweats, but fall dresses can offer just as much comfort with the added bonus of an elevated appeal.
Keep the blossoming prints of summer in rotation by swapping light palettes for dark, moody floral motifs. Ulla Johnson’s fall collection has a few chrysanthemum-covered frocks anchored on a black background that are perfect for the season. Or look to the label’s runway presentation for inspiration on how to layer sleeveless designs with spritely turtlenecks and leggings. You could also show your love for the ever-enduring tie-dye trend with an abstract butterfly print from Altuzarra. Sophisticated fabrics—like the sensuous silk one below—are a perfect contrast next to the easy-going pattern.
No matter which dress you choose to wear this autumn, one thing is for certain: The best fall dresses are sure to add a bit of joy to your seasonal wardrobe. So read on to shop our edit of the best options online.
