Camilla Alves, age 34, the wife of actor Matthew McConaughey, lit up the New York City sidewalk this week in a stunning Tracy Reese colorblock kimono maxi dress ($498, Nordstrom). The busy mother of three, model, and co-host of the Food Network’s Kids BBQ Championship, paired the flowing ensemble with dusty lavender heels and large royal purple sunglasses.

Though the silk dress has the potential to be dressier, her lack of jewelry and undone curly hair with fun shades give the look an effortless, casual vibe. And while its colors are rich, the dress isn’t too loud: perfect for a sunset dinner, or just strolling arm in arm with your main squeeze. Plus, wrap dresses look good on almost every figure, cinching you at the waist, and showing just a little leg, while the kimono style covers the upper arm.

Coveting Camilla’s dress but can’t splurge on the price tag? For Her found a few look-alike dresses for much less money, below. So tie one on! Because it’s been a long, hot week, and you and your man deserve a cool breeze of romance.
