Why Kaftans Are Having A Major Fashion Moment Right Now

Why Kaftans Are Having A Major Fashion Moment Right Now

No longer just a beach cover-up, the kaftan has now become one of summer’s most popular everyday dresses. With new designers such as Vita kin and March 11 taking the kaftan to the next level with their heavy linens and OTT embroidery, these are just a bikini cover-up no more. 

The city-appropriate kaftans we’re loving this season come in the form of floor length a-line dresses with exaggerated bell-shaped sleeves. A super-simple way to look chic and keep cool in the heat. Rest assured, while, yes, the luxe resort brands, like Lisa Marie Fernandez and Sleepy Jones, are making us drool over their pom poms and tassels, H&M and Zara have also got it totally in the bag if you’re shopping on a budget.

This season you may even want to reboot your kaftan with a version that’s more jacket or robe-style. Dodo Bar Or has the dreamiest embroidered front-tie jacket that you’ll not only be wearing over your swimwear for a spot of al fresco dining on the beach but you’ll also want to team with your jeans when you get home.

So forget tie-dye, bat wings and anything sequin you may have previously owned for the beach, and update your kaftan style now with one of my favourites in the edit below.
