The Fall 2019 Dress Trend I'm Only Shopping Secondhand

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.

Bonus points for the color because green will be huge for fall.

The floral print is such a fun addition to your typical minidress.

This dress paired with knee-high black boots would be the ultimate fall night-out look.

A little plunging V-Neck never hurt anybody.

Straight out of a flapper's dressing room, don't you think?

As if the sequin wasn't '80s enough—the off-the-shoulder detail really makes this dress something you can't resist.

Would this be an '80s inspired dress roundup without some tie-dye?

LoveShackFancy isn't just for your go-to floral dresses.

This is a dress version of a disco ball, and I'm into it. 

Put on a pair of strappy heels and you'll look red carpet–ready.

I can totally imagine this over a white tee for a casual yet fashion-forward look.

From the ruched detail to the metallic polka dots, there's a lot to love about this number.
