  • Is this dress available now? I too love the look.

  • I just bought a Pippa Holt caftan and I love it so much that I just bought a second one. There’s nothing like a loose dress to throw on when it’s hot out. I live in Sarasota, Florida and we are already tipping the thermometer at 90 degrees…a loose dress with flat sandals is perfect for the hot weather.

  • I am so interested in your take on the option of length for this summer uniform. Midi is the only thing that looks fresh to me now.

  • The perfect way to stay cool and look cool.

  • Pretty shot. Love the whole look as well- do you know who makes the dress?

  • Love it

  • Preston, some of us live in very hot, tropical climates, and I’d be so grateful if you could do a post on how to look polished and professional while having to deal with extreme humidity and heat. In many places A/C is the solution, but we all know that in our era of climate change, we have to ween ourselves off our A/C dependence. (As an aside, when I worked in Tokyo a long time ago, the Ministry of Environment was trying to popularize what the Japanese called “Cool Biz”–lightweight suits to wear in less air-conditioned office environments!)

  • My dream life:
    Wakes up. Asks herself “which caftan shall I wear today?”

  • This is pretty much what I wear every summer. I can’t stand warm weather so I have stacks of dresses from Dosa and Matta and wear those with sandals and slides topped off with a few pairs of jeans and some A line skirts and I call it a day.

  • Preston do you know if the Hermès classic h slide is comfortable. I bought the ysl tribute last summer and don’t love it. Was curious to know what
    Other people thought of the Hermès ones. Thanks

  • Very comfortable but make sure you buy a small size. They give a lot and then they are too big and hard to walk in.

  • Love the ease of this and it’s so true that all summer (so exciting to write that!) will be some iteration of dress/slide, dress/sandal, repeat.
