Why I Love Prairie-Style Dresses

In today’s post, I’m sharing some of my favourite prairie-style dresses that are in the sales.

I have been looking at this dress in particular from Alexa Chung for a while but weren’t prepared to pay the asking price, as I wasn’t sure if I would get a lot of wear out of it. Imagine how delighted I was when I saw it was reduced! Oh yes – I didn’t hesitate to add it to the cart.

When I first saw the vintage-inspired prairie-style trend, I wasn’t sure if I liked it – but I decided to try on a few dresses anyway. Maybe I wanted to prove to myself how awful they looked on me. I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight – but this trend definitely grew on me. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised. Some things just look better on than on a hanger.

I love the romantic and feminine vibes to these dresses and they can be worn day or night for many different occasions. The one I’m wearing has a whimsical feel and look and has puffed sleeves. It has ruffled details on the front and hemline.

      Hi Biki, I think that with the frills and everything else that the dress doesn’t need much more. Thank you! I think that this trend isn’t going away anytime soon and I will still wear it even if does.
