Last week, newly engaged Jennifer Lopez wore a long-sleeve prairie dress while out and about in California. We already knew prairiecore was going to be a major spring fashion trend, but J.Lo just confirmed that it's time to pull out our favorite puff-sleeve and gingham dresses. If you could use a few new options for the warm-weather months ahead, Amazon has you covered with on-trend prairie dresses for under $45.

To simplify your dress shopping experience, we rounded up five customer-loved options, including short-sleeve and sleeveless styles in various lengths. Keep scrolling to check out five under-$45 prairie dresses you can wear all spring and summer long:

Prettygarden Plaid Spaghetti Strap Tiered Maxi Dress

PRETTYGARDEN Summer Dress for Women Plaid Spaghetti Strap

For a classic prairie look, check out the Prettygarden sleeveless plaid maxi dress. Available in six colors, the dress is made from polyester with tied spaghetti straps, a cinched waist, and a ruffled hemline. One shopper called the dress "extremely comfortable" and said it's "perfect for spring and summer." Other reviewers mentioned that it also works well for pregnancy since its oversized silhouette can easily drape over a baby bump.
