I'm a Picky Shopper, and These Are My Favorite Fall Dresses

Best dresses for fall

If you can believe it, this fashion editor of five years is, in fact, quite picky and won’t just wear or buy anything she sees. (In case it’s not coming through on the internet, that was sarcasm.) Of course, I’m picky! I’m obsessed with clothes, shoes, and accessories and look at them on the internet every single day both for my personal gain and for my job. If I wasn’t highly selective, I would be shopping way too much, and I definitely wouldn’t be as effective in curating only the best picks for you all.

Today I'm directing my discerning eye at fall dresses. Admittedly, aside from party-ready styles, I’m not that much of a dress girl myself, but I think that’s only made me even better at picking them out. After all, if I'm willing to trade in my jeans for it, then it’s got to be really good. So, from casual to cocktail, see and shop my favorite frocks for the season ahead below.   

I love the idea of contrasting this sweet slip dress with a blazer and chunky, leather boots.

Exactly how I would style this, too.

Get even more use out of this sweaterdress by styling it with jeans on colder days.

Leather is one of those trends I hope lasts forever. It just looks so luxe (even when it's ultra affordable).

This dress served me well in spring, but I know I'll only use it more in fall and winter.

Thought Realisation dresses were just for summer? Think again.

I have these shoes already, so I guess all I need is the dress and I have my next party outfit?

Anything that looks this good with black ankle boots is an automatic yes.

Of course, one faux-leather dress wasn't enough!

Another one I can personally vouch for—this minidress looks so good with kitten heels.

Just one of many animal-print pieces I'm coveting this season (if you couldn't tell).

Wrap dresses are universally flattering, and that's just one thing I like about this cute dress.

This will look so good with strappy sandals.

Asymmetrical details are always a yes from me.
