Understated style, only in a Caftan from Blue Heaven Noosa

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!

The versatility of caftans

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.
