22 Long-Sleeve Dresses We’re Buying for Fall

The best ones to shop, right this way.

By: Hannah Baxter

We’ve officially entered that strange in-between season when it’s not quite warm enough for a sundress but you can’t wear a sweater or wool suit every day either. (Although we 100 percent endorse blazers with bike shorts.) So what’s a sartorially-inclined girl to do? Behold the beauty of the long-sleeve dress. With prairie dresses remaining firmly in the closets of street style stars everywhere, there’s never been a better time to grow your own collection. Whether you like a minimalist approach, or gravitate towards anything with sequins, here are the 22 dresses you should buy this fall.


If You’re a Maximalist at Heart

Stine Goya Freesia Ruffled Printed Voile Midi Dress, $350

A star-printed voile dress that is just begging for a pair of epic dad sneakers and a micro bag.

A favorite of supermodel Karen Elson, The Vampire’s Wife always delivers on the drama.
