The color may look intimidating to style, but trust us, it will feel right in place with your wardrobe. This mini dress tops our list for its carefree attitude and natural boldness. When putting together your look, we recommend formulating it one of two ways: opting for a full pink look or honing in on this trend by having one accent piece that speaks for itself. If you want to try the former, we suggest choosing pieces in lighter or dark shades than the main piece.

The Different Types of Fall Dresses to Buy on Amazon

As temperatures drop, take note of the current collection of dresses, and consider which of the season’s upcoming trends are worth mixing into your rotation with more standard silhouettes.

  • Midi dresses: The beauty of the midi dress is that it has a love-forever appeal with the ability to feel smart and casual. This season, designers such as Dannijo and The Drop on Amazon have taken the midi dress to task, delivering an array of iterations that will bolster your every day and evening wardrobes. One major theme is colored garments shown by a simple knit style or the ubiquitous patchwork prints. These designs have been proven popular by celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Kendall Jenner, who style them with combat boots or designer sneakers.

  • Mini dresses: Hemlines are shrinking this season, and there’s one for every taste and occasion. Amazon’s Amoretu Shift Dress can be styled correctly for year-round appeal with designer tights and loafers — an outfit formula loved by Hailey Bieber. Line & Dot’s Britney Dress, with a sporty collar and rib-knit texture, is ideal when worn with knee-high boots and an oversized blazer.

  • Maxi dresses: Dresses should be all about ease, which is exactly what a maxi dress embodies. Comfortable, chic, and perennially modern, a maxi dress will always be a go-to no matter the time of year. This season we’re seeing minimalistic designs —dainty patterns and subdued hues— that act as wardrobe staples and will stick with you for the long haul. Add a statement necklace or a belt for a sophisticated look.

  • Day-time dresses: A breathable dress is a no-brainer if you know you’ll be out and about all day. You can throw a denim jacket or a trench coat over it with sneakers, and you’ll be set to tackle your to-do list. The best part is that most day-time dresses can be night-time dresses if you bring a change of shoes that elevate your uniform, such as slingback heels.

  • Evening dresses: Party season is upon us, and excitement extends into our wardrobes. Whether you’re heading to an intimate dinner with friends or a lavish cocktail party, there’s a dress on Amazon to suit the mood. This season there’s an array of delights to indulge in, from Amanda Uprichard’s Poise Dress to Significant Other’s Rhiannon Dress, both of which put dancing back on the agenda.

  • Work dresses: Dresses that mean business are back and better than ever. These pieces adhere to most corporate dress codes and require little skill or effort to style properly. Plus, they’ll make your mornings easier with their throw-on-and-go capabilities. With the arrival of fall, opt for a silhouette that embraces the sleeve and style it with chunky loafers.
