As the summer draws to a close, it’s time to start transitioning your summer wardrobe of slip dresses, denim shorts, and swimsuits to fall staples built for cooler temperatures. It goes without saying that all-in-one dresses are seasonless, but fall maxi dresses are especially stylish, single-item outfits that take the hard work out of getting dressed. For one, they’re fuss-free and serve as the foundation for other fall wardrobe essentials, like a great over-the-knee boot or lightweight sweater. This season, more so than ever, the maxi is having a moment, with designers across the board making a case for longer hemlines. With more coverage than a summer dress, the longline silhouette of fall maxi dresses is flattering every time. Sometimes, less is more.

From casual day dresses to cozy knitwear in colors to match the changing leaves, fall maxi dresses solve the problem of tricky transitional dressing. For dressier moments that call for more formal attire, choose a hunter green embellished dress by Proenza Schouler or an off-the-shoulder Khaite dress to keep you warm on a cool night without ever sacrificing style. Casual shirt dresses from Gabriela Hearst and Rixo are best when pared down with a pair of white sneakers or penny loafers. For fall outings like apple picking or weekend getaways upstate, consider a sweet floral frock from Mango or Ulla Johnson. Puff-sleeve maxi dresses from Sea, Staud, and Farm Rio are as office appropriate as they are wedding guest approved.

Bid adieu to the summer heat and welcome in the cool days of autumn with the help of 30 must-have fall maxi dresses that go from day to night effortlessly.
