One Prairie Outpost Between The Dream And The Real

The prairie trend was seen all over the runway, especially in Marc Jacobs Spring collection as he translated his tried and true grunge vibe into frontier chic. This is a great way to try the floral trend of this season, as well, with the calico and flowery dresses and skirts.  In a favorite magazine of mine I saw this trend being called “foho” or a mix of ‘60s boho and ‘70s folk.  It’s all about the sweet and simple silhouettes of light camisoles, sweeping dresses, flowy skirts. The trend needs to be tempered by some modern such as some hardware on those rugged boots or a distinctly 2009 fringed purse. And don’t forget to layer on the chunky turquoise and coral jewelry. Reminds me a bit of a shoot I saw about Argentine cowboy style; check out the sunflower picture below!

I would prefer this look with some flip flops but the boots are very frontier-esque
