My new staple for the upcoming summer months have to be Kaftans. Travelling to Dubai this year made me realize, who said kaftan’s are just used as bathing suit cover-ups? Every other women is wearing a kaftan in so many different ways there. Its really a piece in your wardrobe that doesn’t require you to be skinny, tall or have the perfect curves to flaunt it. Being in Dubai, I can only talk about all the exotic food I ate; wearing this kaftan helped me think less about the detox I have to get down too.
This particular kaftan is from Nida Azwer, a very well known Pakistani Fashion Designer. I was drooling over her latest mirror collection when I found this digital print piece. As much as my husband calls it a newspaper printed on a dress, I love this flimsy piece of fabric! Its super comfortable and light weight, just what I needed to wear in the heat.
Kaftan’s have been worn for centuries in Africa and Middle East and now I know why!
What do you guys think about my fur slides? I was practically living in them during my trip!
