Glamorous Summer Caftans

"To me, caftans are one of the most versatile pieces of clothing, meaning you can wear it from the beach to a barbeque to a cocktail party to a black tie event. Caftans are timeless and I never leave home without a few when I'm traveling because you never know where you're going to end up and need a caftan!"

Wear This Caftan To A Fancy Black Tie Event

"I would wear this Ralph Lauren caftan dressy for a black tie event or in a dream scenario, on the Riviera! I love this poppy summer red mixed with gold accessories like a beautiful bib necklace and metallic strappy sandals."

Wear This Caftan To A Glam Brunch

"Since this Missoni caftan is a light color and printy, it works great for daytime events like a lunch or brunch. It doesn't feel very evening unless it's a casual beach wedding. Because there's a lot happening with the print, keep your accessories simple and maybe do a gorgeous turquoise drop earring."
