We Bring Good Things to Life

14 Dresses to Shop This November

No matter the occasion or season, there’s always plenty of opportunities to wear a dress, and of course, an overwhelming amount of options from which to pick. And since there really is no bad time of year to invest in one, we’ve put together a monthly edit of our favorite dresses you can shop right now.

Between early holiday parties, wedding ceremonies, and, don’t forget, Thanksgiving, November is filled with festivities that call for a great dress. So this month’s edit includes both sweater dresses perfect for cozy weekend getaways and more fanciful options for these special occasions. We’ve pulled printed, ruffled, tiered, and pleated frocks, and some lovely silk and velvet options that feel just festive enough for the upcoming holidays. And for those returning to the office, there’s also a handful of smart dresses that’ll make getting ready a breeze and help you get back to business. All of these will look divine with fall’s best black boots and, of course, the season’s sleekest outerwear options.

For any and all of fall’s festivities, look to this month’s dress edit for things to wear this November and the rest of the joyous season.
