I love kaftans, I always have. They are incredibly useful for summer dressing. Wear them on the beach, for lunch by the pool or dress them up with some funky jewellery in the evening. I seem to have acquired a selection of k
I found some really colourful ones in St.Tropez market this year.
I find that cotton and linen are the coolest when the weather is hot however some of the lightweight viscose ones can be useful, they pack without creasing, take up very little room in a suitcase and are great for the evening.
Very boho if you like that look
Kaftans can be long or short. Personally, I prefer the longer versions as I like to cover my legs. However I do have some shorter ones that I wear with trousers.
This pink one is my favourite. I just love the colours. It comes from one of the more upmarket stalls in the market. It is more pricey tha some of the others however the linen is excellent quality.
It seems to reflect the gorgeous pinks and reds displayed on my favourite flower stall.
This black and white one caught my eye if you like monochrome dressing
Either of these two would look great over a swimsuit. I like the pompoms on the bottom. Very St.Tropez.
Monsoon have some nice colourful kaftans.
Boden also have some excellent short kaftans and tunics
