Fall 2011 Trend Alert: Peasant Dresses


Our style salute to south-of-the border style doesn’t end at tribal prints. This season, we’re loving the resurgence of the 60’s peasant dresses, updated in chic chiffon and silk. Flowy, off-the-shoulder silhouettes stay true to the classics, while festive prints and girly trims replace the standard cotton shift.

How wear the peasant dress trend:
1. Pick a lightweight fabric, like gauze, chiffon, rayon or silk. This will make sure that the dress falls on the body, rather than creating a boxy silhouette.

2. Peasant dresses look amazing paired with boots and leather crossbody bags.

3. Layer away with earthy jewelry that’s heavy on natural stones, leather or beading.

How would you style it?
