My love affair with day dresses has been smoldering for some time now and with fall just around the corner, things are only going to get hotter.  Today I'm sharing some of the best transitional dresses I've found recently that are perfect for daytime and easy, casual dressing.

Let's start with something simple that works in multiple ways.  This dress checks all those boxes quite easily.  I love the voluminous silhouette that makes it so flattering on all body shapes.  The dropped hem is also quite cute and works so well with the fuller sleeve and drapy nature of the dress.   Of course, the black color is right up my alley as I just think it plays so perfectly with rich cognacs and tan leathers that help usher in the new season.

If prints are more your preference then perhaps you'll want to consider this frill sleeve midi dress from & Other Stories.  I love so much of what they do and this particular dress shows why.  Not being a huge fan of prints, it takes quite a lot to lure me in that direction nowadays, haha.  But honestly, this gorgeous color way and muted pattern work flawlessly together to create the most beautiful early autumn look.

Denim is also always part of the story each season.  This sweet little frock is one I'd happily slip into on the way to some daytime fun.  The fabric is perfect for late summer, early fall and the cut is quite easy to wear as well.

Finally, we can't end our stay without mentioning the all time classic, the t-shirt dress.  This style has been popular for years and the look is somewhat of a staple when it comes to creating an ultra easy daytime look.  This one is done non such a lovely shade of sage green which will work with any of the basic neutrals you may already own.

Each of these pieces would pair nicely with either sandals or trainers at the minute.  A well-crafted leather bag like this one would be an easy way to accessorize any of these dresses along with a fun hat and some classic shaped sunglasses.

And there you have it, some of my favorite ways to style the dress for some late summertime fun.  Hope you're all enjoying a great week...see you on Friday!
