Ethnic Style Inspiration: Crazy about Caftans

Monday, May 30, 2011

I am crazy about caftans right now! They're the perfect way to ring in the summer, what with their flowy and colorful structure. And they are just fabulous.

Some of the best kaftans in the world hail from Morocco. Princess Lalla Salma of Morocco in a beautiful traditional Moroccan caftan:

And Secretary of State Hilary Clinton with Moroccan princess Lalla Maryem, both in traditional Moroccan caftans:

Caftans are popular all over the world, even in Hollywood:
Jessica Simpson, being the style maven she is (what with her billion dollar fashion industry) also rocks a caftan:

The great thing about caftans is they look good on everyone, young and old. Here's Susan Sarandon in one too, looking fabulous:

Runway designers have also taken their own turn at long caftans: Temperley London, worn here by Princess Rania of Jordan:

Roberto Cavalli:

Matthew Williamson - I just love the tie-dye:

Caftans are also catching on in NY... check out The Sartorialist
