Romantic Western-style dresses are an end-of-summer staple

Western romance- inspired dresses are making a comeback. Find grace in detailed ruffles, body-skimming silhouettes, floral prints and lace and embroidery textures. Relaxed sleeves, split hems and cinched busts allow for a slightly fitted yet comfy shape.

As delicate as these romantic dresses are, they can be grunged up with animal print earrings, combat-style boots or a choker necklace. When the weather cools down, pair with fall pieces like an oversized denim jacket, a taupe-colored hat or leather boots.

Wear these versatile, modernized prairie dresses to the office, fall weddings, on date night or to street festivals — the airy feel makes them comfortable to walk and travel in.
