How to Look Cool in a Kaftan
The ultimate throw-on-and-go piece, wear a kaftan in style this summer with our simple styling tips
For many, the thought of a kaftan conjures up vivid pictures of Eddy and Patsy from their film installment of Absolutely Fabulous earlier this year - belted and accessorised with a hefty dash of gold costume jewels. Good news if sequins and floral prints are your forte, the racks are brimming with a rainbow of offerings at boutiques such as Augustine and Neon Gypsy. For those who prefer a more organic approach, or want to take their kaftan beyond the beach with ease, the aesthetic of Italian fashion house Marni is a great port of call. Think expressive prints, tactile accessories and rich, earthy shades. A combination that works just as well in the city as it does at the bach. There are plenty of great local options from the likes of resort wear specialist La Madu, look out for kaftans that feature artsy prints, textured cottons and pockets for holiday ease.
