Prairie dresses are my new obsession for S/S19. I’m currently wearing mine with a roll-neck and cowboy boots but come summer I will happily swish around in this with trainers to dress it down and barely there sandals to dress it up.
The interesting thing about the Prairie dress is that it is the perfect mixture of conservative modesty with its high neck and ankle grazing hem and bohemian freedom with it’s floaty tiered skirts and floral prints. I like to imagine it as what Florence Welch would wear to a Victorian themed music festival.
When shopping for your perfect prairie dress look for high necklines, bibs, ruffles and puffy sleeves. I like floral prints but i’ve also spotted some nice plain ones in pale blue, pale yellow or (if you don’t have kids) white.
Shop the look.
I’ve found my favourite Prairie dresses from the high street and rounded them up for you below. You can click on the links underneath the images to shop each dress, some of these are affiliate links which means I earn a small amount of commission when you buy.
What do you think about this trend, will you be floating around in Prairie dress this summer? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for reading
