Forever 21

A thin faux-leather belt and lace-up back make this already on-trend chambray sundress special. What's more, it still works once the temperature drops -- just add a long-sleeve T. ($18 at Forever 21)

Sixties Princess

 Back to School Dresses for Girls


Sure, you could pair this on-trend A-line, colorblock dress with white boots, big bangles and a bouffant hairdo, but it also looks amazing with a pair of Converse, too. ($35 at Gap)

Pink Parfait

 Back to School Dresses for Girls


If she can't get enough of all things pink, this ombre crocheted dress has every shade. We love that it's fully-lined and super easy to slip on, and that the knit cotton will keep her feeling cozy through the cooler months. ($20 at Target)

Mad Red

 Back to School Dresses for Girls


This all-cotton slip-on dress is a no-fuss option that’s easy to layer; buttons and running frills add to the eye-popping poppy hue. And since it can be dressed up or down, it's a splurge that's worth it. ($62 at Appaman)

New Classic

Alex and Alexa

We love the buttoned red neckline and the handy pockets on the front of this sailor-striped shirtdress. For extra pop -- and warmth -- add some leggings in a bright, contrasting color. ($30 at Alex and Alexa)

Wild Wrap

 Back to School Dresses for Girls


This kimono-inspired, turquoise tiger-print cotton-blend dress designed by Diane Von Furstenberg for Gap may seem exotic, but in price and practice, it's pretty basic: Just one button and a decorative side bow -- and you're good to go. ($30 at Gap)

Chevron Chic

 Back to School Dresses for Girls


This playful, casual dress in hip chevron looks great with leggings or jeans, or layered with a cardigan as the weather cools. Zero buttons and a rainbow of bright hues to choose from make this a must-have fall staple. ($25 at Gap)

This crazy-cute, flowing, duck-adorned dress is perfect for tea parties and walks in the park and, okay, dinner with the grandparents. Despite the posh cut and colors, the corduroy and roomy side pockets keep this splurge-worthy dress comfy and casual. ($66 at Joules USA)
