How to Wear a Kaftan

 
Gone are the days where it's only acceptable to wear a kaftan at the beach. The warmer months are here and there are some seriously stylish kaftans in stores that offer a multi purpose.

I'm sure you've all heard of the amazingly talented Camilla Franks and her gorgeous designer kaftans. They just ooze extravagance and have an exotic array of colourful patterns. Another great place to buy kaftans is Seafolly. They have so many fun, bright colours with both short and long options. 

Kaftans are great for any sort of day time event, whether it be a pool party, baby shower, lunch catch up or house party; they can really be dressed up with a nice pair of wedges. Or if heels arent your thing, they look great with flat sandals. But you're not just limited to day time, adding some chunky jewellery can really amp up your look for a fun night time outfit. 

We all know that famous scene from the second Sex and the City movie when the girls are having a fabulous lunch in the desert. Carrie has the most gorgeous pink kaftan style dress on, with chunky gold bangles and curled hair. She's such a style icon and the fashion from both the movies and the television series have influenced so many women's style over the years. 

I'm keeping an eye out for some fabulous kaftans to add to my closet this summer and I'm sure I will find one for every occasion!
