Dresses are all about showing off a bit of skin, right? Not right now! As The Washington Post reports, prairie dresses--of the sort favored by Laura Ingalls Wilder in Little House on the Prairie--are all the rage right now in high-fashion circles. Designer Batsheva Hay recently stocked a hip, New York diner full of models wearing her "buttoned-up, ruffly blouses in old-fashioned cotton." The Post adds, "There’s a ripple of reserved femininity running through fashion. Young women have been drawn to dresses with small-scale floral prints, puffy sleeves and poofy shoulders. Hay’s vision has been the most pure. It doesn’t have the pop culture edginess of Gucci or the accessibility of Coach. Her clothes are far more earnest."
