When picking up our attires for the fall, we prioritize comfort and protection more than we do trends. It is only reasonable considering that clothes are basic necessities, and that keeping up with what is currently fashionable cannot be afforded by all. But when you have utility covered, this time courtesy of long sleeves appropriate for the season, that gives some freedom to look into the styles that are killing it on the fashion scene. Here are some of the long sleeved frocks that will blend right in with this season’s trends:
1. Dolce & Gabbana Lace dress
Dolce & Gabbana lace dress hits two birds with one stone: it is romantic through the material and appropriate for the season because of the color. Even when you don’t have an important engagement to go to, wearing the dress does not seem like a questionable choice; It hugs the curves but the long sleeves and the neck keep things modest.
2. Peter Pilotto Asymmetric pussy-bow fil coupé crepe dress
This time of the year may bring gloomier days, but that shouldn’t keep you from experimenting with prints and silhouettes, guaranteed to make things brighter and lovelier in the end. This Peter Pilotto crepe dress is a good place to start with its asymmetric nature and fun prints. Move around in this vintage-inspired dress and have fun with the pleats and the tassels swinging along with you.
3. Max Mara Agio wool and cashmere dress
Ever wondered what “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” would look like? We think it would take the form of Max Mara‘s Agio dress. Made in a combination of cashmere and wool, the dress is just as cozy as it looks. You can elect to wear this alone, but the color makes it more flexible in pairing with edgier pieces.
4. Opening Ceremony Striped ribbed-knit maxi dress
Knits are made cooler by Opening Ceremony’s maxi dress. Just look at it—the ribbing and the colors remind us what the fashionable kids wore back in the day, and as we’re seeing, older trends are coming back big time. The dress would go amazingly well with dad sneakers, another retro silhouette that’s currently the craze among sneaker lovers.
5. Proenza Schouler Tie-dyed stretch-velvet turtleneck maxi dress
If you’ve previously assumed that tie dyes were only for the summer, then this Proenza Schouler will make you rethink that notion. Inspired by artist Sheila Hicks, the frock introduces a different approach to the dyeing technique by including it on velvet instead of tank tops and insignificant tees. It doesn’t hurt that the dress with the elevated style is comfortable and wearable too, just as what designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez intend for their creations.
6. Gabriela Hearst Josefina silk midi dress
Dress to impress this fall with Gabriela Hearst‘s Josefina. Fresh from the label’s latest Fall collection, the dress reminds us of Victorian styles, mainly because of the draped neck, silk-satin material, and belt buckle. Italian-made, the timeless piece is meant to emphasize the waist. Taking them with ankle boots will relax the attire a bit.
7. Oscar de la Renta Floral jacquard-knit midi dress
Oscar de la Renta’s dress is the perfect example on how florals should be this fall. The blooms pop against the dark background, and the fullness of the skirt is realized with the focus on the waist. Wear more accessories to your heart’s desire to make the ensemble brighter and more interesting.
