Gorgeous Late Summer Dresses You’ll Still Be Wearing This Fall

With summer in full swing and fall on the not-so-distant horizon, we’re all about investing in late-summer dresses that we can wear now and when the season changes. Happily, with countless dreamy designs from all of our favorite designers and online fashion stores to choose from, we’re feeling pretty spoiled for choice right now. So, are you looking for pretty printed minis that’ll see you stylishly through summer soirees and fall events alike? Or, are you in need of longer off-duty dresses that’ll work just as well with sandals right now as they will with boots later in the year? Either way, our edit has you covered…

Late Summer Dresses You Can Layer In The Fall

One of the chicest and simplest ways to take your late summer dresses seamlessly into the fall season? Add layers. Opt for knitwear or a light jacket for off-duty silhouettes. Or, try a structured jacket or blazer over your go-to late-summer evening dresses. For example, we’ll be slipping into the embroidered flower mesh tube dress by Rotate to see out our summer evenings in style. Then, as the weather grows cooler, we’ll simply slip a jacket over top for a flawless transitional look. This dress is particularly perfect for this thanks to the classic, seasonless, black-and-white floral print!

Meanwhile, the Devi ruffled midi dress by Zimmermann is, in our opinion, a must-have for the months ahead. Firstly, the ultra-flattering fit stole our attention the moment we laid eyes on it. Plus, with that on-trend crochet construction and dreamy green and cream colorway it’s truly flawless. Not to mention, it’s the ultimate late summer day-to-night dress since it goes perfectly with both flats and heels. So, pair this one with sandals for plans in the next few weeks, then simply add a light layer for early fall events.

Late Summer Dresses In Fall Colorways

Another easy way to make sure your late summer dresses work beyond this season is to opt for versatile colorways. Whilst you might not feel like slipping into shades of neon or vibrant prints come fall, summer dresses in muted, earthy tones will work perfectly! For example, the embroidered mini dress by Anthropologie. This beautiful midi with its black and brown hues will look stunning with everything from flat sandals to heeled ones. It can also be dressed up or down depending on your weekend plans. Finally, when fall rolls around, you can easily throw your chicest knitwear over top for a stylish, and seemingly brand-new, autumnal ensemble!
