Every Wildly Chic Dress Trend I'm Spotting on Fashion People Right Now

No matter the occasion, there is always an opportunity to wear a great dress, and there's really no bad time of year to invest in one. From vacation to the office, a chic frock will be your wardrobe hero—an easy and chic option when you have no time to think. 

This season, we've seen the fashion crowd embrace a number of chic styles, and today, we're highlighting some of the coolest. If you're looking for a dress to take you from summer to fall in style, then take a peek below at the wildly chic dress trends on fashion people right now. You literally can't scroll Instagram without spotting one of these styles.

Cinched Waists 

This season has been all about embracing the waist. Dresses that feature cinched waists and full-volume skirts have been all over the fashion crowd and will continue to be a huge trend into fall.

Romantic Ruffles

Pretty and romantic, dresses featuring soft and delicate chiffon and cascading asymmetric ruffles are having a major moment right now. They're perfect for those after that Y2K look.

Maxi Lengths

Maxi-length dresses have been reigning supreme this season. Opt for an effortless sleek and streamlined silhouette in luxe fabrics such as linen, satin, and knit. They're ideal for transitioning into fall.

Silky slips and delicate lacy frocks have been all over our feed this season. Pair them with Mary Janes, chunky sneakers, button-downs, and lightweight sweaters to give the frocks a casual spin that you can wear on the street.


Continuing with the romantic theme, sheer fabrics are dominating right now. Whether it's transparent chiffon fabric cleverly layered over other skirts, dresses, and pants or lace fabrics thrown over your undies, the sensuous styles are here to stay.

Drop Waist

Fashion people are all about the drop-waist trend right now. There are so many cool iterations out there for every sartorial taste and budget, and investing in one will have you looking altogether on-trend this season.

There's no doubt pink and red dresses are everywhere (after all, they're two big color trends this season), but it's the subtle and elegant gray hues that have really caught my eye, as it's a perfect color to ease us into fall. 


Minimal strapless silhouettes have unquestionably been one of the biggest dress trends of 2023. A chic black or neutral hue is timeless and will last you well beyond the current season.
