28 Brown Fall Dresses Inspired by Supermodel Hailey Bieber

Last weekend, Hailey Bieber stepped out over two consecutive nights in two slinky dresses from Saint Laurent’s spring 2023 collection. Making the case for brown fall dresses everywhere, the model tackled the traditionally tricky color with great sartorial success (as if anyone would be surprised). Bieber’s first Saint Laurent gown of choice was an ab-baring cutout silhouette that featured a twisted strapless bustline, proving that showing off a little skin is seasonless.

For her second gown, Bieber chose a slinky mock-neck brown dress that elegantly grazed the floor, accessorizing with chunky gold bangles and strappy sandals. Much like her street style formula—where everyday wardrobe essentials mixed in with trendier It items shine—this duo of dresses unsurprisingly turned heads.

Per Bieber, an autumnal brown dress is as easily dressed up with sparkly jewels and a high heel as it is dressed down with a pair of fall boots for a casual yet cool daytime look. The model is also clearly onto something by bringing cutouts and bodycon silhouettes out of summer and into fall. Brown fall dresses from Nensi Dojaka, Significant Other, Christopher Esber, and The Range all feature cutouts to Bieber’s liking. Bodycon dresses from Magda Butrym, Ganni, Jonathan Simkhai, and Mango include figure-hugging silhouettes that manage to leave little to the imagination. Slinky slip dresses from Aya Muse and Bec & Bridge also get the model seal of approval. From deep chocolate brown dresses from Proenza Schouler, Tove, and Et Ochs to light-brown honey-color dresses from Staud and Astr The Label, be like Bieber and try on a beautiful brown dress this fall.
