If it hasn't already, festival season style will soon hit a fever pitch on the shelves and racks of our favorite stores. Blame it on the zillions of Coachella fashion emails we get as editors (We get it: Bold prints! Crop tops! Fringe!), but we've been eyeing summer-ready silhouettes that aren't trying to check off all of the fest-ready boxes.
That's why we'll be traipsing around local farmers markets in this Cali-inspired dress from husband-and-wife L.A. label The Odells' recently-launched collaboration ($52 to $298) with super blogger Jacey Duprie of Damsel in Dior. While we'd willingly add every piece in the capsule collection to our minimalist-meets-bohemian wardrobe, the collab's Easy Dress in Ridgecrest ($248) immediately caught our eye, thanks to its vintage-inspired silhouette and breezy fit.
Designed from fabric made in India on a power loom (which weaves the pattern into the cloth itself), this dropped-waist shirt dress is perfect for spring picnics, desert day trips, and yes, perhaps even a summer music fest when paired with the right shoes. (We'll be wearing it with our favorite menswear-inspired shoes for daytime excursions and minimalist nude sandals for a more laid-back look.)
The range is also comprised of a wide leg jumpsuit in the same laid-back fabric ($268), a structured blue swing dress ($268), and a dark blue patterned caftan maxi dress ($274) that we can see wearing as a light duster jacket in the summer. If you're into matching with your beaut, the line also includes men's pieces, like a relaxed pocket tee ($52), a gauzey short-sleeved button-down ($168), and a casual twill jacket ($242), to name a few.
Into it? The dress (as well as the full women's and men's collection) is available at Nordstrom.com as well as The Odells' online shop and Silver Lake boutique (3906 Sunset Blvd.).
