Peasant Dresses

Peasant dresses came into fashion in the 1970s, during the rise of folk- and ethnic-inspired clothing. These dresses usually have drawstring or gathered necklines, full sleeves gathered at the wrists, loosely fitted bodices and tiered round skirts. Bohemian peasant dresses are usually produced in cotton or other hard-wearing fabrics, but you can find dressier versions in soft silk. Peasant dress is a casual outfit, but they can be dressed up fairly easily if you prefer. They look great when worn alone, but they can also be layered underneath chunky sweaters for fall, blazers for work, or underneath shrugs and wraps for a chilly day.

Select a peasant dress in black silk for a new version of the LBD. It gels well with sequins, diamonds, and other jewels, and it’s a highly successful look for those who need something swishy and unusual for cocktail hour. You also can play with contrast by wearing a soft leather jacket over your dresses, which is great for fall. Wear granny boots or clogs for provincial appeal, and layer on cool accessories if you want to go all-out. On the other hand, you can wear a peasant dress with a skirt underneath to make it look tiered. For the most successful look, simply match the colors of your skirt and dress together: pink, orange, yellow, and ivory are good starters.
