Frumpy where?! Once considered unflattering and old school, prairie dresses have gotten a fresh new look with cinched waists, flirty patterns, and fun colors. They’re typically made of light fabrics so they’re perfect for tropical vacations or long days of exploring new places. Plus their ultra feminine and easy to switch up for day to night looks. They’re especially cute when traveling to cities with plenty of historical architecture, like Cuba or New Orleans. So grab yourself a prairie dress and a baseball bat to recreate your own ‘Hold Up’ music video during your next trip.

If ultra feminine looks aren’t really your vibe, you’ll love the utilitarian trend. It’s the perfect aesthetic for high-action trips where anything from music festivals to ATV riding is involved. To achieve this look, pair simple basics like biker shorts, tees and oversized blazers with harnesses or other accessories with a lot of hardware. You’ll feel as comfortable and cool as you look.

The Maxi Dress is every girl’s favorite Summer essential. But it’s time to raise the stakes with maxi’s that are as extra as it gets. This season, opt for maxi dresses that incorporate other trends of the moment -- like color blocking or utilitarian -- to give this classic look a modern twist. Or scale it all the way down with ultra simple and sleek maxi’s for those nights out on the town in new places with your girls.
