Believe it or not, fall is right around the corner. Soon you’ll be wearing boots, turtlenecks, and blazers every day and mixing in some of the season’s hottest new trends while you’re at it. Speaking of hot new trends, there’s one, in particular, I can’t wait to prioritize in my wardrobe: ’80s-esque party minis. Since fancy party dresses are simultaneously a trend (many designers prioritized them in their collections) and a staple wardrobe item (you always need a party dress), instead of spending all my money on the latest and greatest, I decided to take the more alternative path when it comes to shopping this fall 2019 dress trend and find one on The RealReal.
If you aren’t familiar, The RealReal is a luxury resale site where you can find pre-loved (as I like to call it) designer goods, from Louis Vuitton luggage to Prada headbands. Today, I went on a massive hunt to find the coolest party minidresses the site had to offer. Ahead you’ll see there is quite a selection of these festive frocks from brands as iconic as Saint Laurent and as fresh as Attico.
Since a good party dress is something you should always have on hand, I think that hunting for one that’s truly special is worth every minute, but lucky for you, I did all the hunting so you don’t have to. Beyond the sparkly roundup of dresses, I also am sharing some of my favorite party minis from the F/W 19 runway to really get you in the mood.
