These 30 Fall Dresses Look Luxurious Without the High Luxury Price Tag

Despite spring and summer being the seasons we usually refer to as the best times to wear dresses, I find myself gravitating more toward them in the fall. Considering all the extra layering options, there's more versatility with styling. And as we slowly start reaching the beginning of fall, there are plenty of new arrivals to start preparing for now. Knit maxis, wrap dresses, and structured minis? You'll find all of them below. And while my dream fall wardrobe would consist of Khaite and Proenza Schouler, I've focused on more budget-friendly options in this shopping roundup. But don't fret. These dresses still have a luxe look to them.

Simplify your fall dressing with one of the options below. On days when you struggle to put an outfit together, you'll be grateful for your purchase and for me for sharing these finds with you. Keep scrolling and let the 28 dresses ahead speak for themselves.

After interning at Who What Wear in 2019, she found her way to the team after graduating from LIM College in 2022 with a fashion media degree. She's also spent time writing and working for publications such as Fashionista, Coveteur, and Nylon, but she always knew that Who What Wear was where she was meant to be. When she's on the job, she's perusing runway shows, analyzing the latest thing fellow Gen Zers are up to on the internet, and sharing what she can about the modest-fashion market. You can also catch her dabbling in entertainment, talking about the costume choices of the latest Netflix series or diving deeper into how the plotline affects the viewers in a myriad of ways. Lastly, she likes to create content for Who What Wear's TikTok. Her personal time is spent doing similar but also different things—deep diving into almost every new TV show (Bridgerton, Gilmore Girls, and Stranger Things are favorites), planning her next local getaway (whenever that may be), and reading the latest Emily Henry or Sally Rooney novel in one sitting.
