Dianna Agron wears an ultra-flattering caftan by Los Angeles designer Natalie Martin. Her tissue-weight silk prints are not only beautiful, they flutter elegantly when you walk. We’d wear a similar style by the designer ($245) for shopping in Malibu.
Hosting a barbecue on a really hot afternoon devoid of breeze? Sleeveless cotton dresses in vintage block prints (from $240), from the Gold Dust shop on Etsy, will keep you cool--just be sure to layer on the sunscreen.
Beyoncé nailed the vacationing-on-a-yacht look in this blue number by Australian designer Camilla. To take a cue from Mrs. Carter, we like a blue caftan by local designer Lotta Stensson ($219) for brunch at Shutters on the Beach and a shopping stroll through the Third Street Promenade.
