I was out to dinner with friends over the weekend and someone asked if we could smell fall in the air. I promptly told her to STOP talking about it, because I want to ignore it and pretend like it will be summer forever!
But when I force myself to admit it, she’s right. In the evenings especially, you can really feel a chill in the air that just screams fall. When the weather starts to turn like this – still warm and sunny during the day but then a bit of a chill later in the evening – I typically reach for maxi dresses (or a longer midi).
They work on their own during the day, and in the evening you can throw on a wrap like this one or a jean jacket / drapey jacket. They’re versatile and lets me hold on to the feelings of summer for just a little bit longer.
I’m sharing some of my favorite end of summer maxi dresses today.
Leopard Puff Sleeve // Blousy Shirtdress // Printed Wrap Top // Amazon Basics Maxi
Floaty Butterflies // Buttoned Handkerchief Hem
Black Slitted //Nesli Nap Dress // Black Tie Back // Eyelet Detail Maxi
I try to wear darker and more vibrant colors when the weather starts to turn, but this dusty blue dress with an asymmetrical hem is just so good that I can look past the color! The same goes for this shirtdress option, too.
The Nesli style of the Nap Dress is a great option as the calendar switches to September – the sleeves give it a little extra coverage (and have really great extra details, too!). I own this leopard dress and love the puffy sleeves – and the fact that the fabric isn’t too heavy.
How cute is the eyelet detailing on this dress?! So perfect for fall. This butterfly-patterned dress is a little more expensive, but it is so incredibly beautiful! If you have any weddings coming up, I think it would be absolutely perfect.
If you’re more of a black dress person, this tie-back dress and this one with a slit are both great options. And if you want a pattern, this tank dress or this short-sleeved option from Amazon Basics (that I own and love) would totally work.
