Whether you are bathing by the beach or tanning by the pool, the kaftan will prove to be your ultimate summer must-have!So effortlessly chic, the kaftan makes for an incredible swimsuit cover up, but can also be paired over pants for a playful summer look. Kaftans traditionally hit right at the feet and fully cover your arms (for a more modest look) however, many nowadays come in all kinds of lengths, fabrics and colors. Naeem Khan, Camilla Franks and Mara Hoffman are known for their elegant and vibrant clothes, and their kaftans are no exception! Each designer took their own spin off of this traditional item and made them very fashion-forward and elegant. There is nothing more chic that a kaftan thrown over a tank, denim cut-off shorts or white pants and crystal sandals. If you’re feeling inspired by the bohemain-goddess trend, invest in a bright, chiffon kaftan this summer for a fashion-forward go-to!
