We cannot help but get excited for plaid this time of year, and the Hollywood Dress by Nanette Lepore
is the best way we've seen it in a dress this year. This stunning piece has a deep V-neck, draping at the waist, thick straps, and a hidden side zipper. It is full lined, 36 inches long, and made from a mix of materials including wool and acrylic, so it'll be warm this winter.

Dark blue is a great color for winter, and the viscose and wool blend makes this dress warmer too. The Mabillon Dress by Antik Batik

Need a new black dress but don't have the cash to spend on it this fall? Check out the Silk Pintucked Dress from Gap
. This cute and simple frock has decorative strings at the collar, buttons down the front, pintucking at the body and bottom hem, and shirring at the bottom hem. It is 100% silk and available in tall and petite sizes too. You can easily dress it up or down, and wear it to so many different occasions this fall.
At first glance you may not realize that the Colorblock Dress by Vince
has colorblocking as the grey and black don't stand out against each other. But that is what we like about it, how it isn't flashy and would be great for more conservative events or work. There is a crew neck, grey wool panel at the front, banding at the waist, and a hidden back zipper. This dress is made partially out of wool, lined at the bodice, and it is 39 inches long.

We adore wrap dresses, and the black and white print on the Voce Wrap Dress by Diane von Furstenberg
really makes this one stand out. It has a waist tie and long sleeves, so it's perfect for the soon to be cooling weather. It is 100% silk and 34 inches long.

From far away, you'd never notice that the Striped Jersey Tied Dress at MaxStudio
really is striped. This elegant looking dress has a draped neckline, capelet that wraps around the back, belted waist with gathering, and chain stitch details. The capelet makes it interesting enough to turn heads, but it's still quite conservative and could be worn to work.
We have found a cute dress for work for this week's Frugal Friday, the Abstract Plaid Dress at Charlotte Russe
. It's a fun and bold print, but one that you may get sick of quickly, so it's a good dress to buy a little more inexpensively. It has a scoop neck, skinny belt at the natural waist, and is 33 inches long. Dress is up with some fun heals, throw on a cardigan if you get cold, and you'll love it for the office! It's great for after work drinks too!

The Banded Henley Dress by Autumn Cashmere
is the perfect work dress for fall. It has a crew neck, black trim throughout, six buttons down the front, two pockets with buttons, and short sleeves. We adore the black and white combo as our faithful readers know, and as it's knit, it will keep you a little warmer than your summer frocks.

We simply adore the Brigitte Dress by BB Dakota
. It is a bit retro looking, but not too much to make you dowdy. Instead, you will feel glamorous and interesting when you wear it. There is a crossover V-neck, covered belt at the natural waist, hidden back zipper, and short sleeves. It is also partially lined. If you like this dress, you may also like the similar Bardot Dress
