And Now, the Prettiest Dress Trend of Fall 2019

When we move into fall, it’s tempting to reach for our more practical (and let’s be honest, more comfortable) pieces as we anticipate the brisk weather. But despite the urge, there’s something to be said about wearing an item like layered dresses that feels refreshingly pretty against the background the fall trends.

Wearing a layered dress—or a dress with tiered layers on its skirt—can seem like a high-maintenance feat in its own right, but that’s not about to stop us. Sure, we have staples like the flattering wrap dress and the timeless slip dress. But if you’re looking to give your dress game an added flair, be it for special occasions or not, this whimsical style will add an extra oomph to your autumn outfits. Style this trend layered underneath a pullover sweater and sneakers for an It girl-approved ensemble, or sport it with a pair of western boots to take it in the direction of prairie dresses. Without a doubt, these flirty frocks will look utterly cool for the fall.
