Best Fall Dresses 2012

Our Ultimate Fall Dress Guide — Every Trend, Silhouette (and Budget)

Why we love them: The architectural, structural details we saw on the runway are all figure boosters. Whether it's a structured wrap, collar, or corseted waistline, the architecture here helps to shape our bodies, highlighting what we love (and concealing what we don't). They're also a cool modern silhouette that's both feminine and strong.

How to wear them: Look for the details that highlight your figure best — opt for a wrapped skirt to flaunt your legs, a sculptural neckline to draw the eye upward and show off a great upper body. You can use the structural play here to your advantage, but we love the look of a clean, architectural-cut sheath with bare legs and a great pair of heels.
