With a basic black-and-white color scheme that allows the hieroglyphics-like print to pop, this Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Primitive shirtdress ($325) evokes a modern-day Cleopatra.
We love the comfort of a loose-fitting button-down -- just beware of veering into nightgown territory. Keep the piece belted and the sleeves cuffed just below the elbows for a look that's bohemian but polished. And of course, layering jewelry is a requirement that's practically set in stone.
