2020—a year that has seen an unprecedented change in the fashion industry and the way we look at our closets. Social media feeds showed us stylish slides, designer tracksuits, pajama sets, and workout gear instead of glammed-up outfits that were the norm. So, with quarantine, we changed gears and made comfort a top priority.
As the words, ‘Stay home and Stay Safe’ became the motto of every brand, every company, and every blogger out there, people were discovering the joys and troubles of being home all the time! Some reveled in the laid-back vibe that rose to embrace everybody and some pushed back with hard-set routines. One thing that was common was the endless slipping in and out of loungewear.
The notion of dressing-up every day and choosing ensembles that delighted was disappearing. That’s when the fashion industry chose to pull out its ultimate vacation attire—kaftans from the back of the closet. This inspired everybody to cease the long, uncertain months and deliver chic looks that we like to call: stay-at-home-fashion.
Kaftans have always been popular and date back to the royals of the Ottoman Empire and Morocco who donned these luxurious garbs crafted from fine silks. The draped silhouettes were then introduced to the world as evening gowns by the likes of Balenciaga and Dior. They are now considered as the perfect pick for beachwear.
With a firm nod of approval from the fashion elite and celebrities, designer kaftans have become a coveted must-have. The Luxury Closet is home to wondrous designs from the likes of Roberto Cavalli, Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Etro, Fendi, and more.
Here are a few designer kaftans that will be a welcome break from all those sweatpants:
Embrace clean lines and a delightful orchid print with this Fendi number. Soft silk meets an easy-to-wear style that will be perfect for an intimate evening with loved ones. Pair with dangling earrings and strappy slides.
When it comes to kaftans, Roberto Cavalli is the label to look to. This maxi dress has a lightweight silk exterior that carries a jewel print. Dress it up with layered gold-hued necklaces and accessories.
