You’ve see these Tiered Ombré Skirts at Nordstroms of the world – these are Prairie skirts that are slightly flared to very full, with one or more flounces (deep ruffles) or tiers, and are often worn over a ruffled eyelet or lace-trimmed petticoat.
The boho skirt in many ways resembles prairie skirts that were worn during the early 1800s. Prairie skirts were often made of homespun cotton or cotton feed sacks. In those days, feed sacks were highly valued because they were printed in small floral patterns, and prairie women often recycled the feed sacks into blouses and skirts.
Prairie skirts are so-called after their resemblance to the home-sewn skirts worn by pioneer women in the mid-19th century, which in turn are a simplified version of the flared, ruffled skirts characteristic of high-fashion dresses of the 1820s.
In keeping with their design inspiration, traditional prairie skirts are usually made of “country” fabrics such as denim and flowered calico. Prairie skirts are a staple of women’s western wear, and very full prairie skirts are worn for square dancing.
Mid-calf length, button-front denim prairie skirts with a single flounce, worn with a petticoat that was slightly longer than the skirt, became a mainstream fashion in the 1970s and early 1980s.
Short, many-tiered prairie skirts of voile, chiffon or other lightweight fabrics were a fashion trend in 2005. Some wear longer-length prairie skirts with a slip or underskirt to preserve modesty.
There is a right and a wrong way to wear a prairie skirt, and the key to success has more to do with balancing your line than with any inherent style ability. The key to wearing a prairie skirt successfully is to remember that the skirt design is naturally long and flowing, so the rest of your ensemble should not be that long. Choose a fitted knit shirt or tank top for your upper half, and belt your prairie skirt around your natural waist.
Prairie skirts are not all extra-wide and flowing. You can choose your length as well as your width of prairie skirt, and the new breed of shorter tiered prairie skirts are more figure-skimming and flattering.
Down there, platform sandals are a great choice along with a cloth bohemian bag and a bandanna headband.
These black bohemian shoes are just onesome to wear with the jeans. Aperfect footwear that adds on the style and personality of the lady. The sharp heal and design around the heal is similar anklet that just enhancing the look and is most liked by all women.

Wondering How to prep up your clothes in the dull Winter? Every Girl whines on this one thing with the start of the every Winter and since Winter 2011 is in its thick this has become the hot topic for all Fashion-lovers. I know its hard to shed those mini’s, denim shorts, sleeveless Tee’s and Halter-neck tops and Getting covered up with wool from Head to Toe. Well here is something you can do during the cold months by staying protected yet popping up some style quotient in your attire at the same time….
I feel Scarf is the basic necessity during winter months, whether you are dressing up for work, party or just going in the neighborhood for a stroll…But how you wear your scarf is also of utmost importance. Being creative is the key, a single scarf can be used in many ways to create different styles.

Must agree that wearing long skirts in summer can be tricky. As cute and “summery” as they might be, they can also be hot as all hell. But autumn’s cool breezes suddenly turn ornamental skirtails into functional pieces, keeping our gams cool, but still noticeably stylin’ under close-to-sheer fabrics. Here’s a guide to keeping warm and looking cool while skipping out on the whole Olsen frumpiness vibe.
The general rule is to keep bulkiness either on top or on bottom, but in this case, loose-fitting threads can be worn in both places. Pair a flowy, a-line skirt with a slightly cropped sweater or button-up shirt by keeping the waist cinched, either by tucking it in or using a belt. Pairing an a-line skirt with a tight sweater or blouse can look too home-on-the-prairie. And as always, heels give the look a less bohemian and more sophisticated feel.
To copycat the sassiness of the skirt, pair with an unzipped, well-fitted jacket with a solid tank underneath. Or to rev up grunge, pair with a loose, long-sleeve cropped tee, especially if it has a vintage band name slashed across the front. To dress it up, tuck a sleek blouse with a plunging neckline (and preferably a plunging back, to boot) into a tight maxi skirt of the same color. Black skirts and tops match best, but can cause one to look like a siren.
Autumn calls for rich solids and textures opposed to the florals and stripes of summer. Work a summer skirt by layering with a long blazer for a subtle pop of print.
This is the one maxi skirt you can dress up with a bunch of sweaters. The volume on top dwindles. It becomes balanced with exposed ankles clad in super high heels or boots, adding sleekness to an otherwise heavy look.

There are many fashion trends that come and go, just as hemlines rise and fall. One of the classic styles that has endured over many decades is the long, mid-calf length skirt. It is a versatile style that can be dressed up or dressed down, and the shoe that one chooses to wear with a long skirt can determine whether one looks good enough or not.
Shoes that were one regarded as strictly casual shoes have been refashioned to fit more formal situations. Sandals are a classic example of that.

Since there are no longer the hard and fast rules regarding style that there once were, people have a lot more leeway to choose what appeals to them. Although it’s safe to say that just about anything is acceptable, one should always remember that the occasion for which one is dressing should be the most important consideration when deciding what kind of shoe to pair with a long skirt.
A ballet flat can be elegant but casual. If one is looking for a retro type of look, one could wear Fry boots (the style of the 1970’s,) a Birkenstock will look okay, as will a casual sandal or even a pair of flip flops with a wedge. Clogs have always looked great with denim skirts, and a long denim skirt is no exception. Suede ankle boots or elegant knee high boots are also an option, but these are best suited to casual occasions. Some types of clogs can also look great with a long straight casual skirt.
