When it comes to outfit dilemmas, a dress is almost always the solution. There's no need to worry about finding matching pants for your top, and since it's one item, all you need to do is throw it on and go. If you want to make things more interesting, there are easy ways to add elements to the look by playing around with accessories or adding a jacket or cardigan. Obviously, the latter is easier to do when the weather isn't blazing hot, which is why our favorite time to wear dresses is when we're transitioning from the summer into the colder weather. It's still the right time for breezy dresses, but there's no harm in layering a blazer over one when the temperature starts to drop.
There are plenty of A+ dresses on the market, but we've narrowed it down to 29 that we think deserve your attention right now. You can wear the options below with strappy sandals to keep your summer vibe going or even pull on knee-high boots as we transition into the next season.
Don't be fooled. This fun shade of lime green isn't just for the summer.
Despite being released today, this one's already a best seller.
This will go with slides (pictured above) and knee-high cowboy boots.
Knit dresses often come in muted tones, so I love that this one comes in a playful pink.
Who said tie-dye moment was only for t-shirts and sweatshirts? This dress is a moment.
We love that this has a summery print and how the toned-down colors bring it into the next season.
Rixo sure knows how to do a printed dress.
