Far from being an old-fashioned statement – or a Halloween costume – this season’s peasant dresses are a chic and unexpected way to liven up your fall and winter wardrobe. The silhouettes are modern, the embellishments are stylish, and today’s peasant dress manages to maintain a vintage mystique with a thoroughly modern twist.
Whether you choose a long, flowing dress or a flirty mid-length – even a blousy, long-sleeved variety – peasant dresses are a fun way to add a touch of whimsy to your wardrobe. A good rule of thumb is to find one that’s fitted through the waist – oversize dresses will look frumpy and matronly. Wear a shorter peasant dress with tights and ankle boots to compliment the casual nature of the dress, or dress up a maxi with sparkly accessories and fun heels. However you choose to style it, a peasant dress is extremely versatile!
Peasant dresses are a fun trend, and are definitely HOT this season. If you agree with me – or even if you don’t – sound off in the comments section with your thoughts.
