The prairie dress is about to become an even bigger deal for summer 2019. These long-sleeved, long-length, often floral or broderie anglaise styles are just the kind of “throw on” dresses. “It’s feminine but super-casual and covered up. An ongoing theme and one with broader connotations about what it is to be feminine and in control as a woman in the 21st century.”
So, what’s so very special about this style, aside from the joy the ruffles, detailed sleeves and elegant drop hem will bring to your life? It has the all year round wearability we’ve all been looking for, making it suitable for any—and we mean any—season.
The floaty, loose-fit prairie dress style is easy to layer for autumn/winter over (or under) knitwear. They also have a slight Western edge, so they, of course, look stylish with cowboy boots. Come spring, you’ll be styling it with lace-up sandals and even packing in your suitcase for summer holidays to wear in the evening.
From the smaller, independent fashion weeks in Copenhagen and Stockholm to some of the biggest names in the major fashion capitals of the world, this is going to be a major retail smash.
