I love the look of summer kaftans. It makes me think of how wonderful it would be to spend a summer in Capri waltzing barefoot on a patio overlooking the crystal blue water, sipping champagne and probably knocking over a few glasses with my billowing sleeves :) I've never been, but a girl can always dream, and more importantly, outfit plan - right?!
Everything about the look is exaggerated. Simply wearing the oversized frock isn't enough, the look needs to be accessorized with an oversized hair-do, a whimsical headscarf or turban, and statement jewels - either a collection of bangles or a noteworthy necklace. It's definitely a bit much, but who doesn't like to be dramatic every one in awhile? Despite the "costume-esque" flair of the look, it still manages to be elegant and regal - it helps that Grace Kelly was a fan!
A kaftan is definitely on my wish-list. I think it would be a fabulous hostess outfit. Although far from practical, how boring would life be if everyone was practical?
Happy Friday :)
