Dress to Destress in Natalie Martin

Channel your inner island girl with silk dresses and caftans

If only we were wasting away in Margaritaville instead of toiling, sober and sun starved, in Cubicle County.

Former fashion consultant-turned-designer Natalie Martin feels our pain: She created an eponymous collection of breezy Balinese silk frocks and caftans that brings a bit of tropical insouciance to the everyday grind.

Set your watch to island time and slip into the April dress (a long-sleeved, antique block-printed maxi that channels Talitha Getty) or make a match out of comfy-cool separates (we’re fond of the pea green Renata tunic and Lula wrap skirt). For a beach-to-boudoir vibe, opt for the ivory embroidered Becky dress.

When it comes to silhouettes, Martin favors flowing fabric and forgiving waistlines.

So you can order that extra cheeseburger in paradise.

Available at Barneys New York, 9570 Wilshire Boulevard, at Camden Drive, Beverly Hills (310-276-4400 or barneys.com); at nataliemartincollection.com, $18 and up.
