Chic Caftan

The effortlessly chic caftan (also spelt kaftan) is a beautiful long, loose garment with long sleeves, resembling a robe. Traditionally they were made with silk or cotton and adorned with colorful patterns and jewels. This gorgeous ensemble first made its appearance as early as 600 B.C in Persia. But since then it has undoubtedly reemerged several times in fashion history, making it a timeless classic.

The modern day Caftan comes in various lengths and designs and is such a versatile wardrobe must have! Sheer caftans look fabulous as a glam beach cover up, belted and/or paired with heels for a dinner out (as I have in my outfit), or over leggings and sandals for a casual day out. I wore this floral print aqua Caftan Dress for a dinner date, paired it with my Neon sandals and a neon necklace to add a bright color splash to the outfit.
