While a prim, buttoned-up Amish aesthetic has been around for a few seasons, the look is evolving with more color, more detail, and the emergence of folkloric print motifs that echo the Pennsylvania Dutch tradition of “hex” signs. These decorations often include stars,¬†stylized birds, hearts, tulips and tree forms. For fashion it means shirts buttoned up to the collar, high ruffled necklines, layered apron looks and hooks rather than buttons.
