It’s a perfect weekend morning and the weather is glorious – not too hot, not too cold. You begin brainstorming plans to spend your day outside, with a night on the town afterwards. The most important question — what to wear? It’s clear that the perfect fall day requires a perfect fall dress, the one that turns heads while making you look effortlessly chic.
Here is our list of the top 3 must-have dress looks this fall:
1. The Maxi Dress
While many people associate maxi dresses with Summertime, the maxi is actually the perfect Fall dress that transitions through all the seasons. On the weekend, what is more comfortable and effortless than slipping on a maxi dress? During the day, a maxi can be paired with a pair of sunglasses and a long string of pearls for easy, no-fuss style. Once the sun sets, switch that string of pearls to a statement necklace and slip on a pair of flats for a more dressed up look. While most maxi dresses are made of jersey, there is a new movement towards more tailored chiffon skirts for a more formal look. We adore both styles and each can be dressed up or down.

2. The Shift Dress
A shift dress is the perfect fall dress to look classy and polished. Choose one that’s not too short or too low cut, but just right. For Sunday brunch, pair the shift dress with cute peep toe sandals and a tote. A shift dress can also be a lovely and appropriate workplace look. Its conservative cut allows you to look great at work without crossing the line. At work, wear fewer accessories to keep the outfit more reserved and clean. For a seamless day-to-night transition, bring heels and your favorite statement necklace and you can make a quick after hours switch.

3. The Cutout Dress
This season is all about the cutout dress. It’s a flirty, fun look that is youthful but can also be sophisticated. Everyone wants to show a touch of skin every once and a while, and the cutout dress is the perfect Fall dress to do so in a classy way. Cutout fall dresses come in a variety of styles, with the most common being waist cutouts. While there are more casual daytime versions, in our opinion this style definitely lends itself to evening or party looks. For a modern dressy look, pair your cutout dress with heels, a wristlet, and dangle earrings and you can’t go wrong.
