Never has a dress ticked so many trend boxes. Prairie dresses traditionally come in white (tick), have a billowy silhouette (tick), come in lightweight cotton (tick), and feature some sort of artisanal embroidery. You can see where we’re going here. This dreamy summer dress also has an asymmetric hemline and lace detailing.

Think of this look as the rebellious older sister to the prairie dress. This embroidered blouse in striking coral, with voluminous sleeves and plenty of embroidery is going to see you through every summer event with ease. Add cut off denim shorts and stacked heels to give your prairie look a hint of Americana or pair it with jeans and sandals for a more daytime friendly feel.



The prairie look has roots in the American west, so mix it up with some cowgirl influences. Layer a flouncy white prairie dress under a fringed waistcoat for a look that will work whether you’re out for brunch or at the rodeo.
