The caftan is an unspeakably chic garment. When they were originally worn by Ottoman sultans, they were crafted mostly out of fabric from Istabul and Bursa. The colours, patterns, ribbons and buttons worn were determined by a strict hierarchy. Today, that hiercharchy is one of taste, so why not slip one and indulge your inner pasha? This gorge and affordable cotton one is available at J. Peterman.
And what to wear to live up to your caftan's storied reputation? Why glamorous shades and sunhat, sexy sandals, and gorgeous jewery, ma cherie amour:
