As far as prints go, stripes are a crowd favorite. And it's easy to see why: They're more interesting than solids but still a cinch to style, and depending on what kind you choose—chunky Where's Waldo stripes, skinny pinstripes, asymmetrical lines—they can look preppy, quirky, or businesslike. Striped dresses are particularly helpful this season, providing a one-and-done outfit you can pair with fall boots, black tights, sherpa-lined jackets, and more.
Choose a sweaterdress for a comfy weekend look that's perfect for apple picking or Sunday brunch, then opt for a belted shirtdress for something a little more polished than jeans at the office (or, if you want to take a cue from street style stars, belting one of these over jeans is also a smart bet).
