February 6, 2012 Shopping For: Kaftans – By Teresa Greenfeld – In my fantasy life, I lounge around my apartment wearing flowing chiffon kaftans, hair in loose, cascading waves. In reality, I very rarely have time to lounge, and my lounge wear consists of tissue tanks and leggings. Though come to think of it, my hair is very often in loose waves. Only after spending an exorbitant amount of time getting it that way every morning. That being said, I adore kaftans. Some may think these brightly printed, lightweight garments resort wear only. But that’s only one way to wear them. They’re also stunning – and my personal favorite – for evening wear (making sure to appropriately layer a nude slip dress under the more sheer kaftans, of course). For more causal occasions, pair shorter ones with tights, sky high booties, and a blazer. In the event that you live my fantasy life, and wear them “lounging at home”, I request that you provide me with your address. I will be making surprise visits. – 1. Afroditi Hera Kaftan Dress 2.
