Kaftans for the Beach

Wind blowing kaftans along the beach

The wind is blowing, the sun is glaring, the ocean roaring. Is this paradise for you? If the answer is a resounding YES then a kaftan is the ultimate cherry on top of this perfect scenario. 

Kaftans are More Versatile Than You Think

Beach cover-ups can be quite dull and unflattering. You have a bathing suit that fits you to a tee but then you have to wear something shapeless that hides it.

That’s where a kaftan for the beach comes to the rescue.

One of the best things about wearing kaftans at the beach is that it covers you without hiding you or the clothes underneath it. You’re at the beach after all! You want something that is feminine, light, yet visually appealing. Something soft, breezy, yet able to give you that little bit of modesty you want while walking around.

To Button or Not To Button

Kaftans typically come with a button or two in the front so you can decide if you want it held together or let it be free and wild.

On windy days, ‘free and wild' might be just a little too much freedom! On calm days, it can give you a little different of a look if you button it. More like a dress. A little fancier. Think about buttoning it while going out to dinner or when it’s a bit cooler outside. It’ll help keep you warmer.

Beach Kaftan

Kaftans for the Beach (without the bathing suit)

If you are one of the lucky ones in the world to live by a beach, you might want the beach without actually wanting to swim. Welcome to your wardrobe the perfect casual beach kaftan!

Maybe sitting under an umbrella while you read or surfing the Internet is what you have in mind for the day. Or maybe you need to get out of the office for awhile and work beachside. Your kaftan can easily take you where you want to go in style and comfort.

Your Choice of Accessories

Lucky for you, kaftans for the beach can be dressed up or dressed down. You’ll look lovely walking in the wet sand wearing your floppy hat and large sunglasses. (You have to protect you skin don’t forget!) You’ll look just as beautiful at night with no accessories and the moon glistening off the water reflecting back at you.

Beautiful beach scenery with kaftanTime for dinner? No problem. Add a classy flat sandal to your outfit, some beachy jewellery and you’re all set.

Great for Portraits

Ever wanted to get your picture taken by the ocean? Kaftans were made for beach photos!

Do you want something that compliments the ocean’s colors or would you rather you stand out radiantly against it? Include the backdrop of a rising or setting sun and you've got yourself a breathtaking photo.

Kaftans for the beach can be of all different designs: fun and daring or demure and simplistic. There’s no right and wrong; it’s all about personal taste.
