About Peasant Dresses

Peasant dresses let women and junior girls show off their natural beauty with their gathered neckline and softly puffed sleeves. Longer, flowing sleeves are called Shakespearean sleeves. Peasant dresses have a long or knee length skirt with a billowing hem; and there are many cute, Bohemian looking styles that look great with strappy sandals, wedged heels, cowboy boots, or ballet flats. Some have beads, embroidery, or lace, and they come in a vast array of colors and patterns. They look great with a simple belt or sash, a chunky, colorful necklace, and one, two, or several bangle bracelets. Peasants have worn similar dresses since the 700s. A Renaissance peasant dress is very similar to a trendy vintage peasant dress. Both styles often have drawstring ties or elastic at the neck for an old fashioned look. A Mexican peasant dress often has colorful embroidered flowers on a black or white background.
