Laura Ingalls, is that you? The Fall 2018 runways had everyone from DSquared2 to Dior heading for the Little House on the Prairie.

We’ve seen the rise of dark fall florals in the last couple years, and it’s clearly still going strong. This season’s latest iteration has been downsized to a ditsy floral print, is sometimes patchwork or in clashing layers, and often seen with a splash of paisley.

It’s clearly a must-have look for every bohemian beauty, but with a penchant for romantic ruffles and long, sensible sleeves, these flatteringly silhouetted dresses make the perfect holiday outfit, too. It’s the rare outfit that can take you from a family gathering, to the office holiday party, to dinner with friends.

For a look that’s more fashion and less farm, elevate your prairie florals with earthy, layered accessories and a solid bootie with hardware detailing. Get some inspiration from our exhibitors:
