Kaftans and kimonos are the easiest way to layer-up your look. A boho favourite, think fringing, florals and lace trims. No longer restricted to beachwear, they’re the perfect lightweight jacket replacement. Pair them with skinny jeans or denim shorts for a look you can work at home or abroad.
The popularity of kaftans & kimonos doesn’t show any signs of slowing down just yet! Adored by fashionistas all over the world, wearing a kaftan or a kimono is no longer restricted to just beachwear. Taking the place of lightweight jackets in the summertime, women are grabbing their kimonos out of the wardrobe instead.
Kimonos are really simple to style as they simply take the place of another layer wear item such as a cardigan or a lightweight jacket. They won’t keep you warm when the cold winds blow but they’re sure to keep a breeze off your shoulders in the summer and help you look super stylish while doing so! Pair a kimono with your favourite pair of jeans and a cute top to create the perfect casual summer style.
Kaftans can be a little dressier, if you know how to style them. Long kaftans can be paired with bodycon dresses to give a flowing layer to your outfit that skims over the body but still allows you to see your favourite party dress in all its glory. Adding to the outfit rather than covering it up, a long kaftan simply becomes part of the dress and completes your look with a stylish new edge.
