We've Collectively Worked in Fashion for 48 Years and Want These Fall Dresses

As a group of fashion editors (with collective industry experience of 48 years when you add it all up), it’s always been our job to scout the market for what matters in the fashion world, test out trends, and then suggest the latest products to you, dear readers. Given that fall is fast approaching (wild, we know), we thought we’d spend the next few moments here discussing one of our go-to autumn staples. We're talking about the casual fall dress.

That's right. Below, six of us shared the specific fall dress pick that has caught our eye during our market research for the season. What you’ll notice is that there's quite a range—everything from cozy knitted silhouettes to flowy, shorter styles that will team flawlessly with chunky boots. Keep scrolling for more. You’ll also find a smattering of other standout dresses we’re into. There’s bound to be something to suit your style.

The best dresses for fall

"So I really probably should have selected a knit dress or at least one with sleeves. I admit this is squarely a summer dress, but I think it would look fantastic with a tight turtleneck underneath, and it's still hot as blazes where I am. The back scrunch detail is gorgeous. It's just waiting for an Instagram."

Casual fall dresses

"I'm really into ribbed knit dresses for fall, and I can't wait to wear this chic one in this season's most popular color: gray."

Casual fall dresses

"As soon as I saw this dress from Staud's new fall collection, I knew I had to have it. It'll look so good with brown or black accessories and can easily be dressed up just in case there's a reason for that this fall (but I'm not getting my hopes up)."

The best dresses for fall

"I can so imagine myself wearing this dress with a different pair of boots or mules every day next season. It's the perfect non-basic pick that still feels versatile."

The best dresses for fall

"I love throw-on-and-go dresses that you can wear with pretty much any kind of shoes—sneakers, sandals, or boots. I love dark florals for fall, and this dress shape is so classic. Plus, it's on sale, so it's definitely calling my name."
