Caftans are an essential and versatile resort wear item and have come a long way since the 1970’s. A caftan can take you from breakfast to dinner without blinking an eye, when you know how and when to wear it.
Caftans these days have shape and form for even the most structured dresser.
Firstly, a Caftan made from a luxurious material is your friend, silk is cool to wear, drapes beautifully, is elegant and lends itself to larger pieces to make the most of this fabric. Today silk can be machine washed or hand washed in a lingerie bag and hung to dry.
An alternative to silk is a viscose/linen blend. Viscose drapes well and linen has the look of summer. Combined they achieve the best of both worlds without looking like wearing a dish-rag!
Caftans are (mostly) long garments, which means you need to take into consideration the volume of the fabric, the style, and the occasion. If legs are not your best feature, caftans are amazing for covering up and drawing the attention towards more desirable areas, a fabulous neckline, your décolletage, or even those Argyle Diamonds in your ears.
Your caftan will work perfectly out for lunch or dinner with strappy sandals, a change to heels for a beach wedding, or a change into slides for a family BBQ.
Thank you Sandra and Julia for your help and advice. Black Watercult Lace-up arrived today and they are great. Until next time,

Hi Girls Thanks for thinking of me. I was disappointed not to get to Noosa for the Girls Golf week but had the flu. I’m planning to head up in late October for a few days. Let me know what you think? Thanks, I love the service
Dear Julia/Sandra, Thank you for your marvellous service last year. It’s that time of the year that the bathers need updating. Our previous correspondence follows so you can see my size etc., which hasn’t changed! I need 2 new costumes plus wraps or covers. I look forward to your suggestions.
