This summer, fashion is taking its cue from Hollywood for one of its biggest trends: the boho prairie dress. When Sofia Coppola launched her directorial debut with The Virgin Suicides in 2000 it quickly became a revered fashion favourite, beloved for the dream-like Seventies dresses worn by the mysterious Lisbon sisters, which were in turn inspired by the costumes worn in 1975 cult film Picnic at Hanging Rock.
Fast forward to the summer of 2020 and the romantic look has become one of this season’s go-tos, featuring sheer fabrics, pretty ditzy prints, off-the-shoulder and bell sleeves and embroidery detailing, all in pale pastel hues. Toughen up the ethereal look with a pair of cowboy boots. Here, we’ve rounded up the best prairie dresses to tap into the bohemian trend, that will also take you through to autumn.
