Right now, I'm transitioning everything in my wardrobe over for fall and winter. I've just swapped out my sandals for boots and pulled out my chunky knit sweaters from the back of my closet. And with all this closet reorganization comes another category: dresses. Yep, you guessed it. I've just put away my light sundresses until next spring and am replacing them with fall-ready long-sleeve midi dresses.

There are dress trends, and then there are dresses that are classic enough to be categorized as a fall staple. IMO, midi dresses with long sleeves fall into the latter category because the style is one that just never seems to quit. No matter what the dress trends du jour are, I'm confident that there will always be a spot in my closet for a few of these midi-length numbers.
