How to Style A Prairie Dress
*Keep it Simple – A prairie dress makes a statement with it’s embellished sleeves, stitching and fabric, so it’s really such an easy look to throw on in a rush and still looked pulled together. The dress has it’s roots in pioneer woman working the land and it’s more modern styles are perfect for everything from working at home, running errands and chasing after your human and fur babies.
*Pair with boots, sandals, ballet flats or ballet mules – Comfort is key with this look, so think of a shoe that’s easy to slip on and off. Or skip the shoes altogether and feel the grass on your feet as you run through the plains. 🙂
*Add a hair bow – This is really the only accessory you need with a prairie dress. In another musical I did (Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), I remember my director stopping me in the backstage hall… I thought he was going to give me a choreography note, but instead he told me to head back to wardrobe for a matching hair bow to go with my dress.
