Prairie dress trend: shop mini, midi and maxi floral dresses

Posted by for Fashion

From puff sleeves to ruffle hems and statement collars – the prairie dress is the way to tick off many new season trends in one. 

Update your mini, midi and maxi dresses by opting for styles that tick off the unforgettable prairie trend. Key across quite a few seasons now, the power of a great frock knows no bounds. 

So, what exactly are the aspects of a great prairie dress? The trend centres around retro-florals, the kind of prints you may expect to find on curtains from a previous decade. In a great way, of course. 

Aside from the print, it’s also about the cut. Whatever hem length you opt for, a ruffle at the bottom adds to the trend; as do puffy sleeves, a square neckline or a statement collar. 

Attention to detail is key here, and some brands are ticking them all off in one do-it-all dress package. Batsheva, The Vampire’s Wife, Rixo and Dôen are the designers getting it right, with sustainable brands including Omnes and Yasmina Q also creating iterations of the much-loved prairie dress.
