No matter the occasion or season, there are always plenty of opportunities to wear a dress and, of course, an overwhelming amount of options from which to pick. And since there really is no bad time of year to invest in one, we’ve put together a monthly edit of our favorite dresses you can shop right now.
November marks the beginning of celebration season. Fall festivities, weddings, and holiday soirees are the perfect reason to justify a new frock, whether you’re looking for something more formal, casual, or somewhere in between.
A chunky or turtleneck sweaterdress from Tanya Taylor or JW Anderson will be your go-to on casual weekends and weekdays. (These sorts of styles were practically made for the season’s quintessential knee-high boot.)
One of these cozy knit dresses—such as an elegant off-the-shoulder plaid dress from A.W.A.K.E. Mode—will also make a good candidate for a warm dinner party at home, at Thanksgiving or otherwise.
Those who are looking for something a touch more fanciful will enjoy styles in luxe velvet from Rixo or Proenza Schouler; an autumnal version of summer’s prairie dresses by Erdem or Dôen; or something with a hint of sparkle, such as Victoria Beckham’s mixed wool-and-sequin tank dress. Any will have you stylishly and appropriately prepared for fall’s traditions and your winter plans.
