I started to design some beautiful flowing Kaftans and look to the internet for the best Kaftans for the Aussie freedom loving Woman
Embellished, heavily patterned or sleekly minimal – there is nothing better than a Kaftan.
I have always been an Aussie beach lover . A barefoot in the sand, wind blowing lhrough my hair ,type of gal 🙂
What I wear over my bathing suit or just going for a walk down the shore with my dog – my favorite bit of clothing is something
which is not restrictive.
Thats why I love a Kaftan for it’s flow and freedom of movement..
Wearing a beautiful Kaftan is easy to wear and provides ease of movement and compliments my body.
In essence it makes me feel beautiful .
What’s in a Kaftan ?
Hopefully you !
Kaftans have been around since Pharonic and biblical times..
It is an ageless garment worn by Women all around the world . Historians write Western fashion adopted it from the Middle East .
in the 1950s ,60s and even 70’s , It was not unfounded for a woman to be wearing a Kaftan fashionably out and about
and in the home .
There is no restrictions – and why should you be restricted by clothing ? We have enough restrictions in our life as it is !
Born to be free in our body and minds as we are covered by cloth .
Be free in the clothing which cover our bodies.
Cover or accentuate, Your choice. If you decide to accessorise, belt it or billow it up, the possibilities are endless .
There is so many types of Kaftans to choose from .
My personal favourite would be one you can wear from beach to the shop to restaurant & home.
.A Kaftan I can throw over the top of my head and feel comfortable in an easy to wear layer of fabric designed to promote
flow and freedom.
Short or Long Kaftan ?
Of course this goes hand in hand with preference.
We all have a body part we want to accentuate or hide & comes down to personal preference.
I like micro mini kaftans and wear some granny shorts underneath.
My best friend likes a kaftan with a flowing sleeve ( as she doesn’t like to show the top of her arms )
I also love Long Kaftans for the swish of movement it gives as I walk. And they look great barefoot or with flat sandals .
And if I feel I want to “hike it up ” I tuck it into the top of my undies and I create a billowing effect at my hips or I accessorize
with a stretchy belt and “voila ! ” I have 2 different looks .
Material of the Kaftan.
The great thing about Kaftans is they can be worn all year round.
My favourite fabric would by durable and breathable and easy to clean.
But you can’t go past a silk Kaftan – plain or patterned – and I think the ultimate Kaftan would be one which doesn’t cling but moves
with the lines of your silhouette .
I do love a Cotton Blend on a hot day and there are so many beautiful fabrics to make a Kaftan unique .
Embellished Kaftan ?
“Bling is still my thing ” and I am a bower bird when it comes to sequins & Swarovski stones, nothing turns my head faster !
The Bling in a Kaftan for me has to be real and good quality be aware when you purchase it comes with a care label on how to care for
your embellished Kaftan.
Take Care of your Kaftan and it will take care of you .
So there you have it – if you can’t get to the Beach – bring the Beach to you as nothing says more than I am “free to be” me than a Kaftan !
