Figuring out what to wear during these transitional months can be stressful — but it doesn't have to be.

If you don't want to rummage through your wardrobe to piece together an outfit, a dress is an easy one-and-done solution. So, we did the work for you and scoured Amazon to find bestselling styles that you can wear this Thanksgiving, fall and beyond.

You don't need to splurge to find something fashionable, so we selected a few cozy and chic options that are all less than $45 and can easily be paired with the cute shoes and cardigans you already have in your closet.
