Available in a number of designs, colours, different lengths and versatile fabrics, a kaftan can serve as multi-utility garment and hence, is a must-have for you during the summer season. But, to look like a fashionista in this funky outfit, you need to learn a few basics of styling it right. So ladies, here we give you some quintessential tips to wear kaftan like a diva.

#1. The right fabric

A kaftan is usually made of flowy fabrics, but you need to pay attention to this aspect keeping in mind the occasion when you plan to wear it. For example, if you want to wear it for a beach picnic or any other casual outing on a hot day, it is better to pick one made of a natural fabric like cotton or silk. These organic fabrics absorb sweat and help to keep your body cool even on a hot day. On the other hand, for an evening party, you can go for fabrics like satin, georgette, rayon, silk, etc.

#2. Lengths for different occasions

Kaftans come in both short as well long versions. If you want to get dressed in it for a day in office, then we suggest you to go for a medium-length printed kaftan, and team it up with a pair of leggings to complete your look. For any casual outing, you can wear a short kaftan with a pair of slim-fit jeans or shorts.

And, if you want to wear kaftan for any wedding function of your friend or family member, then go for a long one. For example, if you want to wear it for a cocktail party, then pick a floor-length kaftan instead of a gown.

#3. Bag it well

As a kaftan looks quite oversized because of its loose fit, the small bags or purses go well with it. So, pick up a clutch or a small purse when you wear a kaftan. Preferably, choose the one that matches the colour of your kaftan. So, for a causal outing, you can look uber-trendy in a kaftan by teaming it up with a small purse. And, for an evening party, pair your long and shiny kaftan with a small and beautiful clutch. The whole idea is not to overdo regarding the size of your accessories when you are already wearing a large-sized outfit.

If you wear a printed kaftan, it is best to complete your look with a pair of nude heels. Even wedges go well with this beautiful and elegant outfit. And, when you wear this stylish outfit for a party, just go for a pair of high heels in silver or gold depending on the colour of bling in your kaftan.

To look sophisticated in a kaftan, you need to accessorise yourself with some elegant pieces of jewellery. While an embellished kaftan already looks quite complete in terms of bling, you need to be careful while picking up the right jewellery for yourself. So, it is advisable to ditch the neckpieces and opt for the heavy earrings or a sleek maang teeka instead. And, if you are wearing a plain or printed kaftan, then you can wear a sleek necklace without hesitation. You can also wear a few subtle bangles or a bracelet to complete your entire look.
