If you feel like your closet is heading further and further west with each passing day, you’re not wrong — all things Americana have been undoubtedly making a statement these past few seasons. From cowboy boots to swingy fringe and color blocked button-ups à la Calvin Klein, the western wardrobe influences are omnipresent. But the one piece we’re gravitating more and more towards is much more simple: it's the frock we're calling 'the prairie dress.'
Thanks to the reimagining of designers like Creatures of Comfort and Ulla Johnson, the prairie dress is far from its old-fashioned and frumpy ways. And with the perfect balance of casual and chic, it’s the ultimate uniform of the lady of leisure. However, it’s usual bold floral and gingham prints can be quite intimidating if you’re looking to buy into the trend for the first time. That’s why we suggest a flowy, all-white number. You can keep the frills, the overly dramatic sleeves, and the embroidery without feeling like you’re in the 1800s.
