In my previous posts here & here I kept on mentioning the printed dresses and frilly blouses and seeing what many designers are showing they certainly seem to be enjoying a deserved return. I am going for the laid back variant with a western spin. Being an already girly, romantic look I feel it needs a more androgynous style. But then again many women love the straightforward prettiness of the trend, and who can blame them, I do! Just add a whisker basket and clogg sandals, or perhaps a robust pair of Dr Martens, and don’t forget the evergreen sneakers working brilliantly as well.
And there you have it, the Urban Prairie Girl 2018 is born!
Just because I’m a stylist doesn’t mean I’m laboring under the delusion that every trend can work on me or even that we all need to adapt to it. I always loved the prairie dresses — you know, the high-neck, vintage-looking floral dresses that have slowly been taking over editorial post and instagram feds. As pretty as a prairie dress can be, if you don’t find the right silhouette or print, you can look like you’re wearing something you found in your grandmother’s closet. (which can be fun as well). But I for now will be sticking with well proportioned outfit. You do not need to staple in your closet chunk of the dresses or frilly romantic blouse just one item to wear with you favorite jeans or boots can add extra spin on you mood.
I am wearing dress and blouse from HM line trend. Brown boots from Prada and White boots from Zara. Black hat is from Ruslan Baginskiy, light hat is from Janessa Leone. My culottes pants are from Massimo Dutti and short coat from Pringles of Scotland. Belt is Michael Kors. Tip the white boots will make you look modern and they surprisingly go with everything. My cosy cardigan is knitted in Ukraine. I have made a selection of items which are similar and I love very much. Posted below.
