I love a good hippie girl dress in the summertime, and I think the key to pulling them off without actually looking like a hippie girl—at least for me—is to keep accessories minimal, and to pull back you hair, if it’s on the longer side, into a neat little twist. For some reason, all the good ones cost more than I feel they should, but I found this clean-lined stunner marked down at Net a Porter (where they’re having a pretty good sale at the moment).
This pretty frock is from the in-house line at a boutique I love called Matta, which conveniently has locations not far from where I live both in Manhattan and Sag Harbor, so they literally catch me coming and going.
I love black and gold; it’s dramatic without being too much. And this just looks so breezy and comfortable.
I’m not crazy about how this Free People dress is styled, but I do think the embroidery at the neckline is a nice touch.
This strikes me as very versatile and even office-worthy, depending on the vibe of your particular office.
This silk number is about as sophisticated as a hippie girl dress gets.
All the black at the top makes this a pretty refined choice as well.
