From a day spent with family to the wine bar or art exhibition, there are countless ways to style and accessorize a simple dress.
Check out how our stylish friend and layering-master, Hiroko Kato, takes our signature denim Ines dress from a children's birthday party to a museum date with friends. Thanks Hiroko!
LOOK 1: CHILDREN'S BIRTHDAY PARTY
Adding a pair of cuffed, blue denim under the dress makes the Ines feel more like a tunic - easier for running around with the kiddos.
Ballet flats keep it practical but chic.
A printed neck scarf or patterned socks give the monochrome denim a pop of color and keeps your look playful.
Incorporate one of our sustainable, Indian-made scarves into your own look.
The versatile cotton Edgar Allan Poe Kerchief offers a vivacious take on an original Erica Tanov print. Handmade in India, the Edgar Allan Poe pattern subtly nods to mid-century modern style. Wear as a face covering, head scarf, or around your neck.
Or, throw on our cozy, cotton Lahiri Chaussette socks, which feature a ribbed cuff and an intricate motif. The eye-catching pattern is a knitted translation of the woven tapestry used in our Nava Dress.
LOOK 2: SUNDAY BRUNCH WITH FRIENDS
A belted scarf adds a funky layer up-top, while leggings keep the look casual down below.
A mule slide feels feminine and modern.
Find variance in accessories when you pair your simple dress with the Voyage Peshtemal Towel. These lightweight and airy long, cotton towels often double as the perfect scarf.
To further your comfort, wear our Signature Long Belted Cotton Cardigan. This timeless, layering knit is made with natural Pima cotton and accented with shell buttons. Handknit in Bolivia, this piece offers a minimal, elegant silhouette.

Bias-cut and french seamed, the Maude slip dress perfectly balances subtle sultriness and everyday luxury. Delicately trimmed in french lace at the neckline, the Maude silk slip dress is Erica’s personal favorite.
Maude’s lower neckline allows for easy layering under v-neck sweaters and low neck tops with just the smallest reveal of its lace trim. Versatile enough to wear from day to night, with or without a bra. For the ultimate in bohemian luxury style, layer the Maude Slip dress over the Lola Slip dress in a tonal or contrasting colorway.
Our mid-length Nava tunic dress is mindfully created with the textural, graphic 'Ourika' cotton tapestry. Made in India, this piece is woven of dark navy threads on a natural cotton base. A striking, simple silhouette, the Nava dress features a notched neck and slits at slightly flared sleeves and hem. This dress is perfect for layering with slips, a belted scarf, or wears beautifully on its own.
LOOK 3: A DAY AT THE MUSEUM
A cotton slip worn underneath adds a subtle sweetness to the utilitarian denim.
A menswear inspired oxford helps balance the delicateness from the lacy slip.
Style Tip: Try this look with the Rekha Dress. Simply layer over the Lola Slip for subtle lace peeking out, and add an Eve tote for carrying around essentials for a day out at the museum.
Our Rekha Dress is a boxy linen piece with delicate white hand embroidery throughout. This evergreen sihouette includes a soft hidden button closure at notch neck, plus buttoned cuffs, side seam pockets, and side slits at the hem.
