12 of the best prairie dresses to see you through to next summer

Posted by for Fashion

This summer the prairie dress reigned supreme and now we’re welcoming it back with open arms for winter 2020.

We love a dress here at Stylist HQ, whether it’s seasonal velvet, the perfect LBD or a wear everywhere checked number. Dresses are an essential piece of our wardrobe armoury: versatile, easy to wear, the ultimate in fuss-free style. 

And the style grabbing our attention right now is the prairie dress. Yes, I know what you’re thinking – you’ve heard it and seen it all before (this summer in fact) but it’s back for autumn/winter with a twist. We are seeing heavier fabrics, bigger collars, and even more frill trims. 

So why invest now? Well, this trend has staying power – you’ll be wearing these styles through until next summer and beyond. Creating longevity for a piece is all about the styling. Think stomping or knee-high boots and cardigans for now, and come next spring you can ditch those layers, bare those legs and add your Converse or summer sandals for 2021 style.
