5 Dresses to take you into Fall

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.

Shirt dresses are making their reliable reappearance for fall. The tiny diamond print on this short sleeve shirt dress interprets the classic with a nod to fall trends. Excellent for layering or just slipping on over the swim suit, you'll get a lot of wear from this casual dress.

Give a simple cap sleeve dress an adorable kick with wide godets on each side. They give a flirty edge to an A line dress priced under $50. The bright blue and black print makes this budget friendly dress really versatile. Keep the narrow belt or switch it out to create another look. Darling!

Dynamic chevrons in mocha and magenta give a boho edge to this belted scoop neck dress. You can push the length sleeves up on warmer days, but this easy going dress takes a prize for its versatility. It's perfect to toss in your suitcase for weekends away.

Maybe your style is more cosmopolitan? Then take a peek at this black and white dress. It's got an edge but surprises with the lace insert at the back shoulders. You've got the look of separates with the ease of a dress, which is nice. If white's not your color, choose blue, red or all black versions of this knit dress.

Sheer chiffon chevrons cover a belted casual dress. This 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?
