‘Fall’ in Love with Prairie Dresses

Some of my friends’ favorite holiday is Halloween because it is the one time of the year where they can be anyone they want to be from any given era or any fictional world. I enjoy the October festivities as much as the next girl, but truth be told, Halloween isn’t the only time I cease the opportunity to emulate another time, another place. As most of you know if you’re a regular Keeping it Krischic reader, I transport myself through my outfits almost on a daily basis.

Case in point: prairie dressing on a Malibu beach. In the past, such frilly frocks only belonged on country girls in the 1800s while traipsing through a grassy hill with livestock. Coach’s full array of 19th century inspired dresses at their Spring 2019 show, have dubbed Prairie dressing less amish and more fashion-girl cool, according to Fashionista.prairie dress, floral dresses, maxi dresses, floppy hat, beach fashion, fall fashion, California fall, Forever 21, flowy dress, lookbook, fashion blogger, ootd, outfit of the day, Los Angeles fashion, vintage fashion, prairie fashion, style, style blogger

Flowy, floral frocks (check out some of my favorites from Coach 1941 Read-to-Wear Spring 2019 collection here, here and here) have been on my radar for a very long time since I have an affinity for the 1800s both in America and Europe, but hey, if the runway making it a thing means more prairie options to choose from, I am all for it. Plus, they are perfect for a California autumn.

Like in this photo series here, I am a fan of going full romantic with this trend: with half in a low bun parted down the middle with a light felt floppy hat. The dress itself demands all the attention with its berry colored roses patterned on a field of navy. Not to mention the bow collar and frilly sleeves. For this reason, I kept accessories simple with small gold hoop earrings. The look is fitting for Halloween if you want to look like a 19th century miss, or for daily wear. I’d go with the latter.
