One of the biggest trends going into fall are flowy tops and dresses accented by ruffle details and billowy sleeves. These styles often come in muted paisleys and ditzy florals. The fashion world has labeled this vintage trend as "Prairie Romance." While prairie may be in the name, this style is far from the frocks you're probably imagining from Greta Gerwig's Little Women. It blends styles from the past with updated contemporary silhouettes. Read on to find out why we are absolutely loving this trend for the fall/winter season.
This romantic, feminine dress is the perfect piece for those wanting to try out the prairie romance trend. Our Mocha Paisley Patches Midi Dress has all of the features you want, from the flouncy neckline to the balloon sleeves to the ruffle hem. And, it's in a color palette that is flattering on anyone! The modest skirt length makes this dreamy dress a warmer option for the cooler days ahead.
This Black Paisley Ruffle Top is one of our favorites. The gilded stitching adds a certain decadence that will make you feel so chic. The sheer material pairs well with a black cami or a fitted long sleeve for chillier days. The Victorian-esqe frilled neckline is a fun vintage detail that looks cute buttoned up or or left undone.
While the prairie romance style is typically associated with elegance, you can easily keep it casual by pairing a frilly top with your favorite distressed jeans. To dress it up, wear with some black skinnys and heels. We are obsessed with the dusty blue color and subdued floral pattern on our She's A Wildflower Top. The large ruffle at the neckline adds dimension and flair!
Our Olive Paisley Maxi Dress is shaped by pleats and a ruffled tiered skirt. The gilded embroidery gives the dress a sheen that will make you stand out at your get-togethers. The most refined of our prairie romance collection, this piece is perfect for someone who wants to dabble in this trend without all the frills.
