Of Middle Eastern origins, but adored the world over by glamorous women and minimalistic beach bums alike, a well executed kaftan is the ultimate hybrid of all season style and carefree minimalism.
If you’ve ever seen papparazi snaps of Beyonce sailing around the Mediterranean with her beautiful family in a range of bright and flowy kaftans (if you haven’t, it’s worth a google!), you are sure to have felt some lifestyle envy…
“What a glamorous life! How happy and carefree she looks!”
The reality is, anyone can wear a kaftan and feel as relaxed and beautiful as Queen B herself.
But when is the right time to wear a kaftan?
Every season is Kaftan Season …
The dream compact travel piece…
Jetting off to Spain for the weekend and only booked carry-on luggage?
Never fear, your kaftan collection is here. Rather than have pack a whole bag of separate tops and bottoms that take too much room, you can easily fit a couple of kaftans alongside your bikini, flip flops and espadrilles – without worrying that your outfits don’t match!
You can roll your kaftans before you place them in your suitcase, or to minimise the small amount of space they take up even further, fold and compress into zip lock bags – crazy, or genius?
The kaftan is the perfect all-in-one outfit to take you from sipping cocktails poolside, to tapas at the bar.
When you arrive at your destination and unpack, put your kaftan straight on a hanger – the warmer the climate, the faster any creases will fall out of the fabric, and the sooner you get to cocktail hour.
Better yet, pair your kaftan with some slides with a slip underneath, and start your holiday early with ultimate comfort on the plane!
