If you're anything like the Who What Wear UK team, all you want to wear this time of year is dresses, dresses and more dresses—but as we get ever nearer to the end of summer those floaty, backless, off-the-shoulder numbers don't seem like wise purchases. The new collections are starting to drop, and we've spied plenty of dresses that you can wear now and right through winter, too. These versatile dresses will go just as well with opaque tights and chunky boots as sandals. From the most amazing red floral midi dress from & Other Stories to the Ganni dress made for layering, these are the nine dresses our editors want right now.
