Long Wrap Dress
Rachel Pally
Sold by: Shopbop

Fit Guide
The colors of this Rachel Pally dress perfectly represent the best of the season – all in one flattering print that is retro-right. The wrap style instantly creates an hourglass shape, whether you naturally have one or not. The stretch jersey fabric has a nice weight to it that, combined with the shape that gently flares out from the tied waist, creates a wonderfully smooth line. The fit is modern, so go with your normal size (you may want to size down if you are petite and between sizes). You can wear a cami underneath, but it won’t be necessary for most. You can easily wear black boots or booties with this dress, and cognac brown or grey suede look equally beautiful. Go with a heeled version for a night out or a flat if you’re wearing it casually.

Dress in Color…But, Which Ones?

This season, color takes inspiration from a few different sources. There are the beautifully rich tones of the last of Fall’s foliage – think shades of rich reds, mustard-y yellow and burnt oranges. Jeweled shades of purples and teals take center stage, too. And they all work with the strong resurgence of retro-inspired camel. In every shade from soft and pale, to dark and truly retro in feel, this color hue leads all the way to burnished cognac browns – the ideal neutral brown that goes with everything, and is just gorgeous in buttery leather and suede accessories. Reds, from red-hot siren to elegant dark burgundy (that goes for lipstick, too, ladies) are so right for the season, and look modernly sleek with black – perfect for a date night. Soft pastel hues aren’t gone, either. Mix in ladylike pink pastels with deep greens and camels. Or pair pale blue with chocolate brown. The earthy tones ground the precious girly colors and make them gorgeous choices for the season. Always popular denim even gets in on the action, inspiring shades of blue that reflect the tones of our favorite jeans. With all of this fabulous color, neutrals remain just as important as ever, especially grey, which look amazing with everything we’re talking about.

So now that we have that covered, let’s get in to the good stuff. We’ve done some digging to narrow down to some of the best styles that show off all these gorgeous colors. Take a look at a few of our favorites here, and then head over to Fashion Finds, to see more of our favorites for work, after 5, and casual dressing.

J.Crew - Collection Textured Crewneck Sweater
Pastel Accents. You may often think of pastels for the warm weather, and this season, think about them for the cold months, too. As you can see in this J.Crew sweater, they look just as amazing using smoky tones that keep them from looking too Spring-y. We absolutely love the marled knit used here, which mixes in deep burgundy, blue, and rusty camel in a really subtle way that makes it easy to wear with your favorite jeans or camel trousers. The ribbed stitch pattern creates just the right amount of structure in the shorter, relaxed length, so it doesn’t look too slouchy. And in XXS-XL, it is a pretty fit for most everyone.

Luxe Camels. Styles seem to look instantly more chic and sophisticated in camel. So we’re certainly not complaining that it’s so popular this season. Equipment’s amazing 100% cashmere is in the perfect shade that will never go out of style – and it’s right for almost every skin tone, since it doesn’t have too much yellow in it. The over-sized fit is simple as can be, letting the beautiful fabric and color speak for itself. (There’s an equally lovely turtleneck version.) Whether you wear it with a pencil skirt or trousers, jeans or leggings, you’ll reach for it day after day. It’s sophisticated with any neutral (it’s a perfect time to play with ivory and buck that “no white after Labor Day” myth), and it is gorgeous with any of this season’s colors from pastel to jewel tones. Check out our top camel Fashion Finds for Work, After 5, and Casual days.

Jewel Tones. Rich shades of greens, purples, and teals never looked better. And that’s certainly true in J.Crew’s deep green corduroys. The skinny silhouette is one of their staples – and for good reason. In 23-32, the modern fit is a real winner. The somewhat shorter length will hit just at your ankle (and also comes in Petite and Tall). The mid-rise hits at just the right spot below your belly button, so everything stays tucked in and in-check. The corduroy has stretch for comfort and it makes them seriously soft, too. We’re highlighting this awesome green, that looks beautiful with any neutrals like ivory, grey, or camel, but you can play with color and wear a soft, blushy pink with it. Click through the ‘shop it’ button to see all the amazing colors offered – you can cover all your Fall color needs with this one style.

Denim Blues. With the continued popularity of denim, the color has infiltrated every type of fabric, and we’re delighted. It gives always flattering blue a rich new look. Instead of using one shade of blue, Equipment uses several shades in this gorgeous 100% cashmere sweater to create a denim look. The elbow patches are the perfect finish to this amazingly lofty and soft sweater. The relaxed, modern fit looks great with jeans, since the color is so rich and deep, and it can easily look work-ready with a black pencil skirt or your favorite black trousers.

Salt & Pepper. Grey is so popular this season, it even takes on a new look with a black & white, creating a salt & pepper mix. The combination has such a rich look to it, whether it’s in a sweater, a woolly tweed, or a knit top – like this Joie sweatshirt combination. It’s a “twofer” which we always love – the salt & pepper sweatshirt has an attached navy plaid collar, cuffs, and hem that look like you casually put this look together all on your own. Joie’s modern fit is weekend easy, so just add your boyfriend jeans or joggers (you know, nice sweats) to go run errands or grab brunch. On most of us, the shirttails make it long enough to wear with leggings, too. Check out our top Fashion Finds in this color mix for Work, After 5, and Casual days.

RAILS - Nadine Plaid Tunic with Tie Belt
Rich Reds. RAILS is one of our favorite resources for a great plaid shirt, and their use of red in this tunic style is the perfect interpretation for any lady this season. The fabric is seriously soft (seriously) and the easy, contemporary fit is perfect in this longer silhouette. While it comes with a fabric tie to belt it, we love replacing that with a leather one for a touch more polish that gives even more definition to your waist. A cognac belt looks great with jeans and casual brown boots, a black one will make your leggings looks a lot more chic. You can even throw a longer open cardigan over it.

Shades of Grey. The only thing that might be better than a cozy grey sweater for the season is a cozy grey sweater dress. Joie’s easy, modern fit is perfectly suited to the silhouette. The stretchy, straight bottom is offset by the relaxed top that has just enough blouse to it. It not only conceals any belly bumps, but it creates balance for your hips so it is so slimming. Wear black tights and boots (heeled will dress it up, lace-up flats will give it a casual feel) to finish the look for a quick and effortless outfit.If your size is sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, try Shopbop (this picture is less accurate in length) or Revolve Clothing – they all offer free shipping.
