There’s a reason the kaftan has stood the test of centuries as an iconic design and garment. Nowadays, women consider jeans and a t-shirt to be an easy casual outfit, but you still have to find your perfect fit in jeans and the t-shirt that sits and feels just right. What they don’t know is there is an elegant and even simpler option in the kaftan. The kaftan traditionally comes in an open and loose design and, despite being wide and non-tailored design, they are made in fabrics that drape and fall in an elegant and flattering silhouette on any beautiful body type. Wearing a kaftan is truly as easy as finding your favorite color or print, and throwing it on. Anything more than that is just optional.
Kaftans for a woman’s closet has always been a classic item in women’s fashion, even though, culturally and historically, they originate as a very functional and everyday item for men, and coverall garment for women. The loose design has always been created to keep men and women cool on a hot Arabian day. They have always come in various styles from light weight and simple for day time and everyday, to lavishly decorated pieces for formal affairs and outings. Women have also always worn them both as comfortable items around the house and as an easy outfit outside the house.
The kaftan can follow women throughout their busy days, making them useful, fun, and of course stylish.
