Yes, we are still in the peak of summer, but the fall season will be here before you know it, and we want to be sure your closets are ready. While pulling out some of our favorite F/W 16 trends, there was one in particular that we realized you probably already have hanging in your closet at this exact moment. Designers such as Altuzarra, Chloé, Etro, and Preen sent out handfuls of long, bohemian-inspired dresses that we cannot wait to slip into. But wait—have we seen these before?
Ah yes. Similar to the array of floral maxi dresses we have been advising you to wear with sneakers this summer, the fall version of this dress is slightly richer in color and contains longer sleeves, not to mention the occasional ruffle. That's not to say you couldn't make the maxis you already have work for the cooler months as well, perhaps by layering a turtleneck underneath, throwing on a jacket, or styling with velvet booties. So whether you're looking to repurpose the items you already own to suit fall's biggest trends or are on the hunt for new ones to invest in, look no further than these bohemian dresses.
