Dresses on dresses on dresses, here’s all the fall dresses you could ever want or need. Mini’s, maxi’s and mid length, we have style ideas for all of them. We take the guess work out of planning the perfect fall dress outfits to wear for every occasion.
1. Cider Mill Daze
Who says that you have to wear jeans to a cider mill? Unless you plan on running around and climbing on hay bales, then go with jeans. If not, then why don’t you try one of these fall dresses? To stay in theme, pick a plaid or darker color dress. Add in some cute ankle boots or even a wide brim hat to complete the look. Don’t forget to get some cider and donuts, while you’re at the cider mill!
2. Fall Wedding
Don’t let cooler fall weather stop you from wearing a floral dress to a wedding! You can easily carry this trend over from summer with a few simple tips. When looking for a fall floral, try finding a darker or jewel tone dress. This helps you stay clear of a summery vibe. Pair the dress with boots and you’ll be ready to attend any formal occasion you have this season. Plus, the boots will be easier to dance in than heels!
3. 90’s Babe
Whether or not you were actually born in the 90’s, shouldn’t stop you from channeling this look. This look is so causal and cute at the same time. It’s perfect for running errands or meeting up with friends. Pair your favorite crew neck with an overall dress, add in accessories and you’ll be ready for the day. If the weather is a little cooler, simply add tights into the outfit! Problem solved.
4. Cocktail Hour
A great way to dress for cocktail hour and still take into account the fall season, is with this style of fall dresses. Try a shimmery short dress. The long sleeves are perfect for cooler weather and the tiered layers keep it fun. This style of dress is perfect for those in between occasions when you’re not sure what to wear. All you have left to do, is add in accessories to play up the outfit.
5. Rock N’ Roll
When you’re really feeling good about yourself and want the world to know; you can’t go wrong with a mini dress and motto jacket. A bright dress adds drama to your look, while the leather jacket gives off an edgy vibe! You can keep this look causal with flats or go all out with heels. Either way, this is a statement making outfit perfect for any occasion.
6. Indie Love
You can’t go wrong with a maxi dress, ever! They seriously can be worn in every season, if you style them right! This fall, try an indie styled maxi dress and you’ll be in love. Make sure to belt this style of dress, as it can be boxy when it’s on. Then add in your favorite jewelry and chunky heels. Chunky heels are our favorite, so we’ll use any excuse to wear them.
7. Comfy and Cute
Say yes to this jersey sheath dress. This style of dress flatters everyone and should be a staple in your closet. If it’s not already, we highly recommend going out and getting one. You can style it so many different ways this fall. Pair the dress with your favorite cozy sweater when you’re all about comfort. Dress it up with over the knee boots, when you’re going out. The possibilities are endless!
8. Blue Jean Baby
When it’s warm during the day and the weather drops at night, it can be hard to dress accordingly. Welcome to a Midwesterner’s daily challenge in early fall. So, to be prepared for all kinds of weather, our go to outfit is a t-shirt dress and jean jacket combo! Wear the dress by itself during the day and then add the jacket as the temps drop. This will be your new favorite look this fall.
9. Sweater Dress Weather
Sweater weather is on its way and we are ready for it! This season, one of our favorite styles of fall dresses is the sweater dress. You will look sophisticated and completely put together. Who wouldn’t want that? We know we do! This style looks great by itself or layered. Throw in great accessories to really add to this look.
10. All Button Up
For those of you who are always cold, this is an ideal fall outfit for you! Look cute and cozy with this layered look. Pair your favorite dress with a matching cardigan and scarf. Then, add in patterned tights and ankle boots to pull the look together. Not only will you stay warm, when you’re out and about; but you’re perfectly styled for a fall day.
11. Full Length Frock
A frock is a fancy term for dress, but it does the trick. This style of dress definitely does look fancy and it’s perfect for special occasions in the fall. Try finding one that has ruffles around the bottom to help give the dress some personality. It’s also a lot of fun to hear the swish, swish of the ruffles around your ankles as you walk!
12. Farmer’s Market Fresh
It’s hard enough picking out an outfit on a regular day. It’s even more difficult in the early hours of the morning, when you’re trying to get ready for a farmer’s market. When in doubt, throw on this cute peasant style dress. They are a flowy kind of dress that really work well in any situation. Use a wide brim hat to help hide bed head, and you’ll make it to the market with plenty of time to get all the good stuff.
13. Side Split Maxi
Sassy, classy and a little trashy. Not everyone is all for super cute and feminine dresses. Sometimes, you need something with a little attitude and a side split maxi certainly fits the bill. You still get the sensuality of a full length gown, but the split makes it a little sexier. It’s a great option for wine tours! Just think how great the photos will turn out with a darker dress contrasting all the green background.
14. Sun Dress Sunday
There’s something about a sun dress that we just love in early fall. When the temps are still warmer than usual, a sun dress is the way to go. Patterns and darker colors really help the look go from summer to fall, instantly. If you’re worried about getting cold, just remember that you can always add layers with a sun dress, too! It’s not an all or nothing situation.
15. Lacey And Loving It
When in doubt, lace dresses are always the way to go. Causal lace dresses and fancy lace dresses, we love them all. They are sweet and feminine, yet sexy at the same time. If you need a dress for a special occasion in the fall, this is the option you should go with.
