17 Loose Plus Size Dresses That Will Have You Twirling Into Fall

The changing of seasons is upon us. As the summer comes to a close and the days begin to shorten, it’s time to start preparing for chillier weather. With colder temperatures comes a need for plaids, deep jewel tones, and voluminous frocks. Luckily, many of our go-to labels have gotten wise to our wardrobe needs — with retailers like Eloquii, Etsy, H&M, Tanya Taylor, and Nordstrom currently boasting an array of fun plus-size dresses that look lovely while still feeling fall appropriate.

We’ve rounded up a selection of our absolute favorite plus-size dress offerings to swing through the changing temperatures ahead. From tiered frocks to floor-skimming gowns, there’s a swingy style to help you embrace the autumnal vibes ahead as the weather gets progressively cooler.
