September happens to be one of those months where you can still get away with wearing your favorite sundresses but not so much in October. With fall officially in the air, it’s time to push those feminine, flirty dresses aside and make room for fall appropriate versions. Right now is actually one of my favorite times to shop for dresses because the temperatures are still mild and I can get away with sandals. Once it cools down, I’ll swap my heels out for boots and add a coat. If you’re looking to recalibrate your dress collection, I’ve rounded up 20 of the best fall dresses to buy now. I even broke them up into 3 of my fave categories to make your browsing session easier – scroll down for details!

Nothing beats a classic satin dress in the fall. I shared a preview of this look over the weekend and knew I had to include it in my dress recommendations. The color is so pretty and perfect for the cooler season! Slip silhouettes have been trending for a while now and they will always have place in my closet, but I’ve become so obsessed with wrap styles. Throw in a mix of lace and you’ll strike the perfect balance of classy and sexy.
There is something about the luxe and rich texture of velvet that aligns with the heavier temperatures of fall. Velvet dresses are plain stunning in deep hues, plunging necklines, and asymmetrical hems. Look for bold shoulders and long sleeves for a winter appropriate version. This may come as no surprise, but I’m also loving velvet wrap dresses!
Isn’t it great that florals can be worn in the fall now? Swap out bright, airy florals for dark moody ones this season. A few ways to give this summery number a fall update is by adding a chunky cardigan, leather belt, and stacked boots. It’s a little bit western but cool and chic!
Hope you see something you like – and happy shopping!
