It’s easy to get the sense that outfit repeating is an act only reserved for the general population. So when someone as notable as first lady Dr. Jill Biden is seen wearing the same dress on multiple occasions, you have to assume that there’s some sartorial magic going on.

The frock, which Biden first wore back in March on a return trip from Delaware, and then earlier this fall on the South Lawn of the White House before another trip, is delightfully dubbed the Thea dress. It’s a creation of Tanya Taylor, an independent New York City-based fashion label that specializes in artfully printed fabrics, modern designs and inclusive sizing on many styles.

The dress boasts a hand-printed brocade floral print. Its best feature may just be that the Thea is the perfect transitional dress for fall. Even better, it’s currently 30% off now through today, Cyber Monday. (Add the style to your cart to see the discount applied.)

For those awkward seasonal shifts when the weather can’t decide if it wants to be mild, hot or blustery, the Thea’s soft-stretch fabric, slouchy turtleneck and mid-length cut successfully give this garment all the versatility needed to suit all three weather types. As Biden demonstrated, you can easily pair this dress with boots or wedges, along with an endless array of accessories.

Also available in a deep red shade, the Thea dress comes in sizes XS-3X so more body types can appreciate the feminine and figure-grazing fit.

Whether you’re a political figure or not, you can grab this dress for yourself and keep it on rotation. And if even you don’t wear it all year round, you’ll definitely wear it more than twice.

If Biden’s dress is still out of your budget, never fear — we rounded up 12 similar options (in standard and plus sizes) that all come in under $200.

ASTR The Label floral print bustier dress
A decidedly wintry floral print adorns the throwback silhouette of this figure-hugging, long-sleeved sheath dress.Somehow inhabiting the worlds of '80s prom dresses, vintage lingerie and Laura Ashley all at once, it’s an unexpectedly sexy choice for any formal fall occasion. It’s available in sizes XS through XL.
Hyacinth House Presley maxi dress
For a fall-ready option that you’ll be able to wear into the spring, try this airy tiered cotton frock that feels straight out of a garden party. With a host of homespun details — ladder stitching, a shirred waistline and ruffles on the sleeves and neck — it will bring much-needed romance to your winter wardrobe. It’s available in sizes XS through XXL.
Eloquii floating mock neck mesh dress
Remixing the color palette of Biden’s dress in an on-trend marble print, this plus-size mesh dress makes a high-impact visual statement. The cutout “floating” neckline offers the illusion of a matching choker or neck scarf, and the bodycon fabric is fully lined, meaning you can walk on the wild side out without revealing too much. It’s also a bonafide bestseller, with a 4.8-star rating across 37 reviews. “This dress is absolutely gorgeous,” wrote reviewer Lisa. “Far better than the picture leads you to believe. Got so many compliments that I can’t even count.” It's available in plus sizes 14 though 28.
Floerns windowpane print midi dress
If you’re looking for the fit of Biden’s dress in a print that’s a little more straightforward, look no further than this graphic option from an affordable, reviewer-beloved Amazon imprint. This classic fit-and-flare silhouette is streamlined enough for a professional setting, but we saw reviewers who accessorized the versatile frock for more formal settings. Reviewer keff smith, who purchased a size small, wrote: “I'm 5’ 4” [and] 140 [pounds] and wear a B cup. This dress fits snug at the top and flowy at the bottom. I got sooooo many compliments on this dress.” It’s available in sizes XS through XXL.
Anthropologie Somerset maxi dress
While it’s not quite as fitted as Biden’s form-fitting frock, it almost impossible to look for any kind of dress without stumbling across Anthropologie’s freakishly popular Somerset model. The floaty, tiered silhouette has earned a 4.7-star rating across over 400 reviews, and the retailer can’t stop remixing it in new colors, fabrications, and silhouettes. To us, this dramatic, painterly floral print seems cut from same cloth, so to speak, as Tanya’s Taylor’s Thea dress. This particular pattern comes in 100% cotton, but you can also find the frock in velvet, chiffon, and even a shiny nylon for fall. It’s available in petite sizes XXS through XL, and extended sizes XXS through 3X.
Lulus floral print midi dress
Do not overlook this cheap and endlessly cheerful California retailer in your search for an affordable dupe for Biden's dress. No longer just a destination for homecoming gowns and bridesmaid’s dresses, Lulus has a wide selection of everyday separates suited for a variety of occasions. This floaty, short-sleeved frock offers a color palette and mood that’s similar to the Tanya Taylor style at a price that will allow you to stock up on multiple colorways. It's available in sizes XXS through 3X.
ASOS floral maxi dress
Try out a full-length version of the cool-spectrum floral print with this maxi dress from ASOS. In a lightweight synthetic fabric, the high-necked, long-sleeved style is demure yet far from boring, thanks to electric shocks of purple mixed into the ditsy print. It’s available in sizes 0 through 12.
Lane Bryant
Lane Bryant tie-neck open-back dress
This plus-size dress pairs a moody, romantic print with a fitted midi silhouette rendered in a stretchy jersey knit. The high mock neck ties in the back and accentuates a surprising cutout detail that keep the frock from being too fusty. It’s available in plus sizes 10/12 through 38/40.
Reiss Theresa dress
Zoom in to properly examine every inch of the richly detailed print that adorns this funnel-necked frock — the woodcut-inspired floral design adds a dose of drama to an otherwise deceptively easy silhouette. With generous side slits and a slinky viscose construction, this long-sleeved dress strikes the perfect balance of put together and undone. Sizing is limited and the dress is currently available in sizes 0 and 2 only.
Hill House Home
Hill House Home Ellie dress
It wouldn't be a study of dresses without a mention of Hill House Home's now-iconic “nap” dress — and while it doesn't really resemble Biden’s look, the brand’s green jacquard floral print is a classic, holiday-ready option that we couldn't resist sharing as Thanksgiving approaches. It's available in sizes XXS through XXL.
& Other Stories
& Other Stories fitted mesh midi dress
This sleek column sheath is made from a gauzy recycled polyester that's impressed with faint knife pleats that echo the dress’s linear composition, posing a stark contrast to the swirling, jungle-like print that adorns it. The dress is available in sizes S through L.
J.Crew button-front midi dress
Last but not least: an easy, blouse-y midi dress from J.Crew that looks just as stylish with knee-high boots and a cropped puffer as it will with sandals and a pile of beaded necklaces come summer. It's made from a silky blend of viscose and cupro (a recycled cotton material) and boasts a blue-toned print overflowing with flora and fauna. “I saw this dress at my local store and really liked it. In my opinion the material is very nice, it’s light and drapes well,” wrote reviewer MariBoston. It's available in sizes 00 through 22.
