Whether you choose to spell the leisurely and luxurious robe or tunic with a ‘K’ or ‘C’, the caftan is forever as Nancy MacDonnell wrote in the Wall Street Journal last week. While originally a clothing worn during battle, the caftan has become an everyday summer or resort capsule wardrobe item not to be forgotten.
Worn as an elegant gown in the evening, a chic swimsuit cover-up during the day or an everyday effortless choice at all times, when you find one you love, you will have it on hand for years. In other words, don’t be afraid of investing in sumptuous fabrics as such a piece lays upon your skin caressing you as you move, and simply put, natural fabrics, breathable fabrics are most comfortable.
Today I have styled one outfit complete with sunscreen and reading material, but also shopping more than a handful of kaftans available in various price points. Happy shopping and wishing you a comfortable and stylish summer.
