The Kaftan Dress

A Kaftan or caftan dress is basically two lengths of fabrics that are joined together vertically with space left for the arms and neck

It has become a stunner summer staple. The style can be worn as a figure hugging dress or stitched loosely like a flowing tent. It comes in various shapes and sizes and be worn short or long.

Short tunic dresses can be worn as a great cover -up on beaches. You can wear them clinched at the waist for an appealing silhouette. V-necks are flattering on big busted women.

To use it as an evening wear, team it with a pair of skinny jeans and a wide belt or a sash. Though flowing dresses are great, avoid exceedingly loose ones which drown the figure.

What's better way to dress it up other than your favorite accessories. A classic tote bag and shades can jazz up your look instantly. Dress it up with chandelier earrings or chunky bracelets for a more refined look. Wearing your loose hair or teaming it with a wide-brimmed hat is quite hips and classy as well.
It's popularity lies in the fact that it suits all body types and ages. With that said, kaftan dress is fashionable, timeless and ageless - not a bad idea to have it as an wardrobe essential.
