The best thing about the Indian summers and climes is that we can if we want, make fashion statements galore. If you aren’t wiling to wear a saree or a cotton salwar suit, trousers or maybe long flowing skirts, you can still wear something you like and be a diva in street style too. Elegance for sure and with a touch of sensuality, think of long sleeved kaftans while the humidity out there hangs about. kaftans are cool, versatile and can be paired with anything, and for any occasion that too. Here are ten chic ones with ideas to use, and we would leave the styling to you for decipher needs.
Patterned Short Kaftans
The cute and sensual short kaftans can be worn to work, to college or just about at home, we leave that to you. A patterned kaftan is apt to wear with shorts, capris, leggings, dress pants, and with short skirts or flair skirts too.
The Morrocan Jellaba is a grand long-sleeve kaftan dress that finds its place with special events, cocktail parties and red carpet moments, should you be invited to one. Wear it over a salwar suit, an anarkali or even with western wear for flair and grand touches, and a fashion statement for sure would come through!
Dark and with graphic prints, let the audience wonder if the kaftan you chose is a long maxi skirt or a kaftan alone. Perfect to wear with loose trousers inside or just the ensemble alone, a pair of heels would make you look tall and slim in them!
Kimono Styled Maxi Kaftans
Much of the styles these days with kaftans are a cross over from maxis to the Greek ensembles. A kaftan on the same lines and in one colour from top to toe, and a sling in the middle for the waist, brings out a Goddess touch for evening parties!
