Last season’s prairie inspired dressing has stuck around another season and continues to be a fall trend for 2019. Personally, I couldn’t be happier. Living in the Canadian prairies, I feel a deep connection to this style of nostalgic dressing. Romantic details like puffy sleeves and billowy skirts are frankly so much fun to wear. Today I’m sharing my tips for incorporating this style into your own wardrobe. Here’s how to wear the prairie dress trend this season.
How to wear the prairie dress trend in 2019
Add a little juxtaposition.
Dressing like you stepped out out the early 19th century may turn some heads, so to wear the prairie dress trend right you need to add modern accessories. A structured bag, a pair of stilettos or a patent leather belt takes the look from early Americana to today.
Show a little skin.
With so much fabric, it’s possible to overwhelm your frame in an array of puffy ruffles. When looking for a prairie style dress choose one with off the shoulder detailing or wear a dress with a high slit. Another great option is to choose separates such as a crop top with a billowy skirt like I am wearing here. The idea is to show just a hint of skin so your outfit remains flattering and modern.
If you are intimidated by the prairie dress trend, try incorporating one prairie dressing detail into an outfit you are already comfortable in. Instead of wearing a full prairie inspired dress, try pairing a billowy blouse with your everyday jeans. Baby steps are key when playing with a new to you style. Once you feel comfortable with a bold statement blouse, try adding in flowy skirt to match.
