Gone are light fabrics, tank dresses, and bright colors, and in their place are heavier fabrics, sweater dresses, and darker colors. And while snow may be on its way, it’s tough to beat the stylish and comfy combo of your favorite pair of tights and a nice fall dress.
This Five on Friday, we’ll focus on five different dresses with unique stylings. Of course, Appalachian Outdoors offers much more than just five dresses, but each of these dresses are guaranteed to give you a completely different look from Monday to Friday.
The Kamala Cowl Neck Dress from Patagonia gives you a comfy, laid back design with the style to match. Made from an organic cotton and Tencel blend, this Patagonia Dress actually has some muscle memory, so it’s a perfect dress to throw in your bag for a weekend trip. The A-line silhouette lays nicely against your skin for a flattering look without any clinginess, ensuring you stay nice and comfy all day long.
The Keyboard Dress from Horny Toad will make each fall day sing with style. As you might guess, this dress lives up to its name with its striped look that works great at work, in the classroom, or at your next backyard bonfire. The touch of spandex in the Horny Toad Dress gives it just the right amount of give, so no matter how long your day is, the Keyboard Dress is sure to keep you nice and comfy.
The Monica Sweater Dress from Prana is a great dress to get you through those chilly winter (almost seemingly non-dress) days. Because of its blend of nylon, viscose, and wool, the Monica Sweater Dress maintains your body heat better than the average fall or winter dress. And the Monica Sweater Dress isn’t just focused on warmth; the ribbed details on the cuffs and neck add some stylish, attractive designs as well.
If you’re looking for a stronger blanket-influence in your cold-weather dresses, you can’t go wrong with the Woolrich Brockden Fairisle Sweater Dress. The flirty cut is great for running around during the weekend, while the longer length offers excellent coverage from icy blasts of wind. The cotton/acrylic blend of the Brockden Fairisle Sweater Dress is so cozy, you might think you’re actually wearing your favorite blanket, not your favorite dress.
If you like the feel and comfort of Merino wool, then you’re going to want to pick up the Randygoat Dress from Nau. With a Merino wool blend, you get all the benefits of your favorite wool pieces in this stylish dress: great warmth regulation, moisture wicking, and supreme breathability. The polyfleece backing of the Randygoat Dress enhances the comfort and feel, making it difficult to leave the Randygoat in your closet. The neck’s snap closures offer some variety with the high collar, while thumb loops on the sleeves ensure maximum coverage and protection when the wind starts biting at your hands. The Randygoat Dress even has an attached hood for extra protection from the winter elements.
