Kaftanmania

Kaftans were traditionally ‘holiday wear’. Now, they’re street wear as well. Knowing kaftans are hot items at Myer, I thought it was time to give one a go!! Wayne is the ‘Kaftan King’. His loose fitting, loud patterned kaftans have proven to be a hit. The sheer, silk, Wayne Cooper number above, is two toned, white and dove grey…quite subdued for Wayne! I have a loose, white slip (from Vinnies) underneath. The long, tone on tone, silver chains and white beads are an easy match and the suede, clunky, low wedge sandals add edge. A simple, easy outfit that makes me think… kaftans are kinda cool.

‘Wayne’ by Wayne Cooper is an exclusive brand to Myer. Wayne uses vibrant ‘tropical’ colours as well as striking animal prints on his kaftans. Tip: Try going down to a smaller size and wearing the kaftan slightly more fitted (tunic style). Discard the belt, as it can ‘cut you in half’.

NF by Nicola Finetti is also exclusive to Myer. These kaftans are quite different to Wayne’s. They have soft billowy sides. Kaftans can be worn with skinny pants and heels for a night-time look. Better still, they can be packed into a suitcase with sandals for a dreamy, tropical holiday!!
