We love scooping up new sweaters and boots this time of year, but there's one staple we often forget to invest in: a good fall dress. We often think of dresses as a spring and summer essential, but there are actually a handful of options that are perfect for colder weather. Knit dresses are your BFF—that's a given—but we were also curious to see what other fall dress trends are currently on our style expert Britt Theodora's must-try list. Theodora is our go-to for all things fashion related, and she shared with us the five fall dress trends she can't wait to try. Ahead, see the trends and shop Theodora's top pick, plus more of our favorites in each category.
The Simple Silky
"I just got this dress from Brazilian brand Farm Rio. I love the print, and the length of this dress is perfect for fall. I can't wait to wear it with white cowboy boots, and I'll throw on my leather jacket with it!"
The Perfect Blazer Dress
"I wish I dressed like this every day. I love the blazer dress for fall, and this Tibi dress is the perfect mix of sophisticated and sexy. During the day, I'd wear it with flat loafers and tights, and at night I'd wear a kitten heel and gold hoop earrings!"
The Leather LBD
"This Ganni moment is extremely flattering on most body types. This dress can be worn so many ways, like with a turtleneck bodysuit or white tee underneath. It's an elevated twist on the classic LBD."
The Ribbed Long Sleeve Dress
"This Alexander Wang dress is gorgeous for fall. Theses dresses look effortless when worn with sneakers and a slouchy cardigan. The ultimate cool-girl uniform."
The Pretty Midi Dress
"I just added this Zara midi dress to my shopping cart! The print is gorgeous, and I'd wear it with chunky combat boots to give it a little bit of an edge. The price point is fantastic, and it's a classic silhouette and print!"
