The Summer Kaftan

 

Lately, all I’ve wanted to do is channel my inner Mary Kate Olsen and don kaftans from morning till night. Have you seen this girl rock a kaftan? Granted, she is waifish and gorgeous, so anything would probably look good on her, but the kaftan seems so glamorous, cool and comfortable all at the same time. Seventies bohemian style seems to be sticking around, so I say bring on the kaftans! Especially now that summer is here and there is a lot of pool/beachside lounging to be done.

A kaftan instantly gives you a laid back vibe and paired with the right accessories, it can be dressed up for a cool around town look, or even wear it for a night out. Accessories are key to keep this look from becoming frumpy, crazy, cat lady.

A few of my favorites are from Emerson Made, Lemlem, and Two New York. All are a bit of an investment, so the above drapey dress from Free People is a great choice if you want to try out this look without spending a fortune. 

It's comfortable, cool, sexy, and wearable all summer long.
