Here at Femme Connection, we absolutely love the Printed Kaftan. This versatile piece will provide the flair you need this summer: wear it over a bathing suit, with shorts, or as a dress! The sheer chiffon is light and breathable, and comes in a huge variety of colours and prints to suit every occasion. Below we have listed our favourite summery kaftans – you’re bound to find your favourite new summer accessory!

Picking Your New Piece

There are so many beautiful colours and patterns to choose from – it can be overwhelming! If in doubt, check out our Classic Kaftan. This piece comes in either plain black or blue, which is perfect for those who don’t like to wear busy patterns.

If a statement piece is more your style, we have a number of options that you’ll love. For a bright pop of colour, our Printed Kaftan in multi pink is our top pick! The warm pink pairs perfectly with the navy-blue trimming, and is great over a swim suit in summer, or over jeans in winter.

Another great option is our Printed Kaftan in Turquoise. Like the pink version, the colour on this piece is absolutely exquisite, and is a great summer statement all on its own.

If bright colours just aren’t your thing, our Hankerchief Print Kaftan is a great way to tone down this trend. The navy detailing on a cream background is elegant and classic, and looks great with a white cami and slim pants, or as a beach cover up.

On to Styling

Once you’ve picked a Kaftan, or three, it’s time to put together some awesome outfits! The Kaftan can work for a variety of occasions, from the office, to the beach, or casual wear.

If you want to rock the Kaftan at work, pair it over-top of a collared shirt with the collar peeking out. If the kaftan isn’t printed, you can also loop a statement necklace under the collar. Pair this look with some tailored trousers and ballet flats that complement the colours in your top.

On a hot summer’s day, a Kaftan is perfect as a beach cover up. Wear over your swimsuit to the beach or pool, with shorts if needed.

For a more casual look, let the Kaftan do the talking. Layer it on top of a simple tank or tee, with a pair of capri pants or denim shorts.
