It doesn’t get any easier than wearing an easy, breezy caftan! You’ll feel cool and look hot all summer long. Caftan’s are simple, yet elegant…comfortable, yet polished and can take you from day to night in total style.
According to celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe, “caftans are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing. Whether you’re going to a wedding on the beach, a backyard barbecue or a black tie affair, you and your caftan will glide glamorously through this summer’s schedule of events. Caftans are timeless and are the perfect travel pieces because you never know where you’re going to end up and need a caftan.”

4 Reasons You Should Be Wearing A Caftan:
Stay chic all year!
Caftans are loose-fitting, free-flowing, vibrant and yet, always flattering. While most women tend to think of caftans as the perfect beachwear (because it is), caftans are perfect for all seasons. You can wear them over a pair of leggings fin the fall and obviously, you can flaunt them all summer long. It’s a perfect choice for a staycation anytime, anywhere.
Mind over Matter!
The best part about owning a caftan is that no matter your body type or age, it would look as flattering on you as it would on anybody else. You can wear a caftan without having to worry about a beach body. Both lean-sized and plus-sized women can wear a trendy caftan, accessorize it to their will, and style away! You should get to wear what you want, whenever you want. Caftans cater to that choice!
Caftans are a minimalist approach to being fashion forward.
It is not a secret that old 2000s fashion trends are coming back and are not going anywhere. Retro styles are shown to not be very practical in terms of comfort but again, the caftans reign supreme. They date back to the Mesopotamian era and were used by designers like Christian Dior and Balenciaga in their collections in the 1950s. It is also a great way to go minimalist in an excessively materialistic world.
Caftans are one outfit for all occasions.
Caftans are the perfect solution to overpacking and over-purchasing. Pair it with strappy sandals to make a beautiful beach caftans outfit. Wear it with a pair of stilettos or high-heeled boots to get a date-night ensemble. Pack a caftan, style it your way, and voila! You’ve got yourself a multi-purpose fit. Even for a staycation, it seems perfect as it caters to all your dressing moods and different styles. Yay, you!
