    1. A belted sweater dress because the weather outside is slowly on its way to becoming frightful, and what better way to celebrate the sun disappearing by 5 p.m. than by wearing this cozy-yet-also-dressy piece?

    2. A mini deep-V dress featuring leopard and sleeves to remind us that autumn. has. arrived, despite the lingering summer humidity. This features an open back which means you'll probably want to go sans underwire.

    3. A V-neck slit dress for a look that screams "I tried" but requires merely 10 seconds of effort. Throw this on, reach for a fedora or fasten a messy bun, and et voilà.

    4. A boho-inspired mini dress ideal for spring, summer, and fall. Add a denim jacket and combat boots for a look that says "Halloween is nigh as evident by my outerwear and footwear choice."

    5. A sleeved bodycon featuring drawstring ruching on each side, meaning that the length of this dress is — gird your loins — completely adjustable. Attempt to contain your excitement until you reach the end of this post please.

    6. A turtleneck sweater dress for a chic way to feel as if you're *wearing* that ultra-soft throw blanket you purchased in three colors from TJ Maxx. The rib-knit material is truly a joy.

    7. A bodycon pencil dress that looks so. damn. chic. And while the importance of owning the perfect LBD is no secret, it's likely you've had the same one for...decades (#guilty). I believe it's time we both level up.

    8. A velvet dress so luxe, it'll look like you just spent the entirety of several paychecks on this one designer item, but surprise! You didn't. This gorgeous number is surprisingly way more affordable than anyone would assume (and the stretch fabric is extremely comfortable to boot).

    9. A fleece hoodie dress that I intend on buying/hibernating in all chilly season long. 🎶 So long, farewell, gotta add this to my Amazon cart. 🎶

    10. A tiered dress with so many 'fit possibilities that my head is spinning. Rest assured that regardless of if you wear this with OTK boots or white sneakers, this loose-fitting bebe is comfy, comfy, comfy, and did we mention, comfy?

    11. A batwing-sleeve dress that rivals your favorite blanket for softness. Reviewers swear by the below for both comfort *and* style; just add some stilettos and jewelry to zhuzh it up for RSVP-requiring occasions.

    12. A belted tunic dress you can consider multiple outfits in one purchase due to how versatile it is. Wear it by its lonesome *or* add leggings and a faux-leather vest for a look that, well, looks completely new.

    13. A tiered maxi with the word "layering" down to a science. Leather motos, denim jackets, plaid button-downs — the outerwear world is your oyster when combined with the neutral dress below.

    14. A surplice maxi dress that won't feel like a surplus of fabric when humidity and sweat glands kick into overdrive during false fall. In fact, the material feels lightweight and breathable despite the longer length — it even makes for the perfect pregnancy and post-bebe 'fit.

    15. A polka-dot number best accessorized with bottomless mimosas served at your next at-home brunch, overpriced avocado toast and a poached egg not required (but highly recommended).

    16. A pleated midi dress that can truly ~fall~ anywhere in the fancy-to-casual spectrum depending on the accessories you decide to fish out of your closet. Pair it with sneaks for date night, heels for that small wedding ceremony, tomayto, tomahto, you'll look fabulous.

    17. A T-shirt dress with a 1,000% guarantee of turning you into a fashion blogger stat, no significant Instagram following required. There's just something about a tie waist — amirite, folks?

    18. A belted bodycon that makes the word ~swanky~ come to mind. Essentially, an addition like this to your fall wardrobe has the same energy as popping champagne or munching on caviar.

    19. A high-low dress about to become your plus one for all 97 of the weddings you RSVP'd to, each one that was cancelled and rescheduled for this upcoming autumn. We hope you enjoy every single cocktail and Venetian hour to the fullest.

    20. A square-neck midi ideal for frolicking through pumpkin patches in an ethereal "I was a fairy in a past life" kind of way. This is an easy one-and-done outfit that requires less effort than matching a top to your favorite leggings, plus the breezy material will feel lovely against your skin.

    21. An off-shoulder tiered maxi dress that I'm pretty sure I'd shed several ~tiers~ over because of how gorgeous it is. Ignore me. I've just chopped a few onions.

    22. A lace V-neck dress for anyone who has had a Pinterest board titled "Boho Wedding" for the past decade. This is stunning, lightweight, and screams mason jar drinking glasses (plus is also available in a ton of hues, which means you can just as easily wear this as a bride *or* a wedding guest).

    23. An off-shoulder bardot mini because no, you do not want to go out tonight, but yes, you did RSVP last week. Presenting at least one less headache: this dress. It goes with every shoe and accessory, plus the material is comfortable and doesn't feel restrictive (despite the fact that it's a bodycon).

    24. A halter neck polka dot dress serving major "Blair Waldorf attends a wedding" vibes. All we'll have to do is conjure up a penthouse apartment and a partnership with Chuck Bass to make the identity official.

    25. A sleeved bodycon because is there anything more autumnal than a high-neck, ribbed, and sleeved dress rolled into one? I think not. Throw in an orange hue and OTK boots, and a phantom scent of pumpkin spice will follow you to the ends of the earth.

    26. A tiered baby doll mini taking a page from the Disney 365 book (if you know, you know) because it can truly be worn any day of the damn year. We love a piece that doesn't need to be vacuum-sealed with the change of season.

    27. A flowy maxi that's just inspired me to scour Airbnb for a staycation in the middle of nowhere. I can picture it already: surrounded by nature, drinking coffee in a semi-modern cabin with floor-to-ceiling windows...all while wearing this.

    28. An off-shoulder maxi dress designed with the phrase wardrobe staple, the kind of number you can wear to weddings and birthday dinners *or* for a stroll through the pumpkin patch when layered with a denim jacket.
