Pro Style Tips & Perks of a Caftan
The caftan has long been a token of inherent style and conjures up images of Pat Cleveland in Halston, Elizabeth Taylor in YSL and most always, Talitha Getty in Morocco. "There is something about a caftan that is so glamorous and decadent, yet effortless. It portrays a lifestyle that evokes relaxed, sunny days. It also portrays an air of importance - almost regal . Worn with the right attitude and accessories it is an incredibly powerful entrance piece," notes Careste Creative Director, Elizabeth Rickard Shah.
During the summer of Covid-19, consider the caftan. Is it too breezy and relaxed for WFH zoom calls? Not when paired with a belt or even a pair of jeans beneath. Is it too much of a swim cover-up? While it's a no brainer at the beach, it’s hippie beachy vibe can be elevated for night when paired with gold jewelry and a statement sandal.
Moreover, when it's balmy outside, what's more enticing than the caftan, the perfect humidity-proof outfit. It provides a loose fit yet support for larger busts, definition for all waistlines and elongation for shorter legs. Bonus- It is sure to hide any Covid-19 bloat (indicating the many times we may have skipped the Tracy Anderson Method workout video!).
It is, in fact, the very best midsummer staple and far more now than the generic sundress. Discover the edit here…
