    While everyone else is anticipating pumpkins, apple picking and autumn colors, I staunchly enjoy my watermelon, berries and green leaves. Dressing for the summer is so much easier than fall. Just slip on a casual, every day frock and you’re good to go. Who wants layers, scarves and (shudder) tights?

    With September’s arrival, it does make sense to look for a dress that slips effortlessly into fall. Here’s my pick of
    5 every day dresses for early fall, 2014.

    PromGirl carries a great selection of casual dresses under $50, so my picks today are all under that price point.

    Sheer layer chevrons on a ¾ sleeve dress

    Sheer chiffon chevrons cover a belted casual dress. This ¾ sleeve dress has a certain polish that some may call definitely not casual. I still think it’s an easy to wear dress that looks great heading out for coffee with friends or running around town. Style it your way and you’ll see for yourself.

    The only dilemma now is which dress to choose. Do you have a favorite?
