Looks for Less: One Chic Caftan

Going to the beach with family and friends is a cherished tradition for many women. Whether it’s a fun-filled afternoon to get away from the busy atmosphere of the city or a week-long getaway to a tropical location, relaxing on the sand while enjoying a delicious, fruity drink never gets old. Of course, there are many fashionable ways to (safely!) soak up the sunshine. One idea is considering wearing a flattering, printed caftan. You’ll look very elegant and be a little more protected from the sun’s harsh rays. A chic, versatile ensemble featuring a caftan is very easy to style and can transition easily to evening attire by adding a fancier pair of sandals and sweeping your saltwater-scented hair into a soft braid. Your outfit will softly blow in the breeze during a romantic sunset stroll along the beach and will stand out among a sea of basic, boring bathing suit coverups everyone else will be wearing.

Another perk? A printed caftan doesn’t necessarily have to be worn on the beach. It can be paired with leggings or skinny jeans for an unexpected twist on a look for an outdoor brunch on the weekend or a casual after-work dinner. A caftan can even be worn with a slip dress at home for lounging around. However you choose to wear your caftan is up to you, but we think it’s an essential piece to purchase for the warmer weather. The snakeskin printed caftan featured here is very flattering on a range of body types.
