As summer fades into our memory, it’s time to shift our focus to fun autumn plans of pumpkin patch visits, picking apples, Oktoberfest, and road trips to spy on fall foliage. We plan to fully embrace all the season has to offer at home and abroad, and trip-planning might involve investing in some new fall outfits. Everyone knows the effortless appeal of dresses and how they make packing for vacation a breeze. The good news is that Amazon has a large selection of top-rated styles under $50 for you to add to your wardrobe just in time for crisp weather.
What makes shopping at Amazon so great is the variety it offers. From tiered midis to trendy boho options to form-fitting sweater dresses, there is a style to suit all preferences and budgets. They also have plenty of dresses that are effortless and travel-ready — meaning they pack well with minimal wrinkles, take up very little space in your suitcase, and can be dressed up and down so you’ll always look polished whether sightseeing or taking in the nightlife.
When making your selection, look for dresses with thicker fabrics and longer sleeves or lengths to keep you comfortable for chillier temperatures. Summer dresses are more flowy, lightweight, and brightly printed; for fall, opt for styles in autumnal colors like oranges, deep reds, and dark greens. These will mix well with your oversized blazers, trendy jackets, and coats you may choose to layer on top.
But, if you’re traveling somewhere a bit warmer this month or the next to escape cold weather, we’ve also got you covered with a couple of breathable options in fall-friendly colorways and patterns so you’ll still look the part. Keep scrolling for 14 Amazon dresses under $50 that are perfect for traveling.
