What is it about dresses that makes them so covetable? Is it their versatility—the fact they can be dressed up or down with the switch of a shoe or the addition of a gold earring? That, or it could be how easy they make getting ready. Quite frankly, the only thing you need to concern yourself with is whether it's too crushed to wear without ironing before you simply pop it on two minutes before you need to head out.
Either one of these reasons, if not both, is likely at the root of why they're so popular. So when a dress also happens to be designed beautifully, it's naturally going to be a hit with the fashion elite—and that can certainly be said of the frocks to follow.
The below 11 dresses have all garnered quite the fan base this autumn, with us having clocked countless influencers and those in the know in each and every one. Remarkably, they're all still in stock, but we know that won't be the case for much longer.
From Warehouse's '60s-style homage to Rixo's latest midi offering right through to the Scandi brand everyone wants to be in a position to name-drop, keep scrolling to see and shop autumn 2019's It dresses.
We continuously want to raid Marissa Cox's wardrobe, and this polka-dot puff-sleeve dress is the latest piece of hers we're dying to get her hands on.
We've seen so many influencers wearing this particular Rixo dress, but Rabea Schif's addition of beige leather ankle boots is our favourite styling interpretation.
Camille Charriere's eye for an excellent dress precedes her—which is likely why she zeroed in on this '60s-inspired mini from Warehouse. Make like the French style aficionado and wear it with chocolate knee-high boots.
We've been admiring Baum Und Pferdgarten's sunny yellow maxi dress for months, and now Nnenna Echem has piqued our interest by styling it with a tan blazer and headband.
If Monikh Dale hadn't told us otherwise, we'd never have guessed her sleek satin midi dress in the most beautiful blue hailed from Zara. Turns out dreams do come true.
A hit with influencers and editors alike, Ghost's Solene dress is fast becoming Instagram bait. Make like Claire Wakeman and wear it with cream or tan espadrilles and finish with a wool blazer for the ideal transitional look.
It's one of the most coveted brands of the season, though no-one wears Cecilie Bahnsen's volumised dresses quite like queen of cool, María Bernad.
Label Mix is our go-to for designer-worthy dresses on a budget, and its latest collaboration with fashion icon Caroline Issa is certainly no exception. Atop our wish list is this rose-print dress, which we predict will sell out fast.
Rejina Pyo is a firm influencer favourite. Though its bags and shoes have been proving popular of late, this silky dress is putting its RTW collection on the map this autumn. Stunning.
As if one It dress weren't enough, & Other Stories went and created another—this high-neck jumper dress in an on-trend shade of green. Simple, yet it ticks so many sartorial boxes.
We can always count on Renata Jazdzyk to assemble the chicest outfits. Somehow she manages to make this already-sleek zip-front Kitri midi look even more fashionable by layering a roll-neck underneath. Inspired.
