Get ready to take some style cues from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s wardrobe this season because prairie chic is one of Spring 2017’s HOTTEST trends.
Think light airy fabrics paired with layered cuts, frills, pioneer worthy lace trims, delicate floral prints, high necklines, pretty calico yoke blouses, long hemlines, gingham prints and Little House on the Prairie-esc patchwork patterns in sun-faded shades.
Prairie style is one part romantic and feminine and one part wild rugged free-spirit. It’s boho meets pure hard working country.
The key to pulling off the trend is all in the styling. Wear a yoke print blouse with a pair of boyfriend jeans or a pretty prairie dress with a pair of chunky boots or a long tiered prairie skirt with a ruffled top. Denim is always a good choice to pair with this trend, make sure it has some good sun-faded texture, and you can never go wrong with a saddle bag by your side. Experiment with mixing different sized prairie florals that are in the same color range to create prairie perfection. Stay away from cowboy boots so that your look doesn’t become too western, instead opt for wood platforms, lace up boho boots or suede booties and please NO cowboy hats!
