23 early-fall dresses with grown-up hemlines
Sometimes it is the eensiest detail—like the striped hem here—that sells me on a dress.
The super-low neckline of this dress is on the daring side; if it’s too much for you, throw on a pretty slip with it and you’re set.
The casualness of the top half here contrasts appealingly with the more ladylike knife pleats.
Just a fun print on a really easy dress.

OK, this is a touch summery, but would look quite cute layered with a cardigan.
From Maria Cornejo: such a lovely work-to-evening option.

Slightly Little House on the Prairie, but in an appealing way.
This looks so much more expensive than it is.
