In recent years, I've grown increasingly enamored with dresses. With this one exquisitely simple piece, I'm instantly capable of getting clothed and out the door quicker all while feeling polished and stylish. It's pretty magical if you think about it. Aside from jumpsuits, there are no other articles of clothing that you can slip into without having to figure out what else to wear with them (save for shoes, of course). Sure, I enjoy layering combinations and experimenting with fresh silhouettes and formulas, but my loyalty will always be with an amazing dress. This, in part, explains why I recently spent more time than I care to admit scouring through all of the dresses on Mango, Zara, and Shopbop. These three sites are reliable spots for finding my next frock; whether it's for an upcoming fall wedding (I've got two of 'em), something for the office, or simply an everyday dress that I can toss a coat over once temperatures cool down.
More to the point, I love dresses. If you share similar sentiments, then the 25 options I'm highlighting below from the 4804 current choices on the three aforementioned retailers above should certainly pique your interest. Scroll down to shop my picks and to get started on your outfits for the new season ahead.
On a recent trip to London, I was informed by a group of locals that there is an entire Instagram account devoted to spotting this polka-dot dress out in the world. If you care to take a peek, check out @hot4thespot.
