5 SUMMER KAFTANS & HOW TO WEAR THEM

 

Kaftans have always been one of my favorite wardrobe must-haves. Maybe it’s from seeing my mother always wearing them when I was growing up.  She had so many; in every different color and pattern, and I loved sneaking into her closet to play dress-up and pretend I was a fortune-teller or a Moroccan princess. There is something effortlessly beautiful & chic about a kaftan and it can be worn for almost any occasion depending on the fabric and styling. My favorite way to wear them, however, is as a swim cover up or at the beach.

 

Here are my 5 favorite summer kaftans and how to style them.

 

Bohemian Kaftan by Issue
 

#1

Printed sheer kaftan with embroidered detail from Issue. I’ve had this one for years and still love it!  Pair it with a bejeweled bikini, a pair of strappy platform sandals and some ethnic accessories for a bohemian look.

#2 

Embroidered silk chiffon kaftan from Lola. Perfect over a matching turquoise bikini for a morning stroll on the beach. I’ve paired it with some gold shades and my daughter’s woven water hyacinth basket to collect shells.

 
 

 
 

#3

This is technically not a kaftan but rather a Mexican peasant tunic but its one of my favorite pieces and I wear it all the time. Here, I’ve gone with a bright orange one-piece, my favorite Panama hat, and some fun & funky earrings for an artistic vibe :)

 
 

 
 

#4

This is the most recent addition to my kaftan collection from the DVF Resort Collection.  It’s a linen wraparound piece and can be used either as a swim cover up or even worn alone as a casual resort look. I am so in love with the colors of this one and paired it here with an embellished raffia clutch and some beach sandals.

 
 

 
 

#5

This shimmery satin kaftan by Sol Sisters brings a sophisticated look for your next pool party or a romantic dinner by the beach. Add some gold accessories and even a pair of heels to up the glam-factor.

 

There you have it! So the next time you go on holiday or have a beach party, you might want to try a kaftan :)
