Retro florals from the likes of Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and cult brand, Batsheva have cemented the prairie dress as a summer staple.

Forget the backless, sexy, silky mini-dresses that caused waves on the catwalks, this summer the silhouette to invest in is the prairie dress. 

The trend centres around retro-florals, but this season’s longer hemlines and full sleeves make this trend more modest than it’s initial  and perfect for weddings and British (read: mild at best) summer weekends. 

Invest now and wear yours all summer long with vintage wash denim, sandals and a quirky mini-handbag.
