How To Wear a Kaftan: Styling Tips

Best Ways To Wear Your Kaftan Dresses 

From beach vibes, casual chic and even formal attire, Karim London’s collection of kaftan dresses are right on trend and suitable for a variety of occasions.

Kaftan dresses are loose, ankle-length garments with free-flowing sleeves. Made popular in the Middle East and by the Ottoman Sultans of Turkey, the kaftan was regarded as being a prized item worn during religious festivals or given to generals who had succeeded in battle.

Years later and the kaftan is still going strong, and Karim London are delighted to stock a varied collection of stunning kaftan dresses. If you’d like to wear this fashionable garment, check out these top styling tips to help you get the most out of your look.

Cool beach wear 

Kaftan dresses such as our Aalia Dubai design are the perfect garment to wear in scorching sunshine, so why not don your robe for the beach? As a fresh and floaty garment, the kaftan is an excellent way to cover up whether you’d like to dress modestly or simply would prefer to add an extra layer before or after your swim. The kaftan allows you to dip your feet and paddle in the water whilst looking beach cool.

Accessorise your kaftan look with designer sunglasses and pretty sandals for a chilled look. If you’re heading out for lunch after a dip, just add a belt for that extra bit of glam.

Chic and casual

Kaftan style is a great look if you love the boho chic trend. Our Jasmin Dubai dress is beautifully exotic in a light blue shade and with hand beaded embellishments. It’s a striking look for casual occasions such as a daytime party, a BBQ or just for meeting friends at the weekend.

One of the major advantages of kaftan dresses is that they’re incredibly flattering for all body types. Any part of the body you don’t feel confident about will be hidden. But if you are curvier, then the elaborate beading on the front of your kaftan dress can draw the eye and accentuate the bust in a complimentary way.

To accessorise your kaftan for a casual occasion, you can choose comfortable, pretty flats or a low mule heel if you prefer. A soft shoulder bag and some bangles or statement ring will also look fabulous. For colder days, feel free to wear a pair of leggings or tight jeans beneath your kaftan dress for added comfort.

Formal fashion 

The versatility of the kaftan dress means that you can wear it for formal occasions too. The Dina Dubai kaftan comes in a classic black and will add grace and charm to your appearance. If you prefer a more vibrant colour, then the Eman Dubai dress has a regal quality in a deeper shade of purple. These are just two examples from our luxurious collection here at Karim London. A jewelled belt in either gold or silver, alongside heels are an ideal way to make a statement. Opt for a smart clutch and large earrings to finish off your look.
