Dashiki Chic: For The Love of Caftans

She's a fan: MK Olsen sports her vintage Halston with Louboutins and the ubiquitous messy, side braid.

As a fashion pioneer, I am taking it upon myself as my life’s dharma (social obligation) to promote and encourage the modern wear of caftans, or Dashiki Chic as I like to call it.  While it is my ‘go-to’ fashion statement while overseas on vacation traipsing about white sandy beaches, I think I will try to work the look while back home.  There is something hippie-dippie 1970’s retro about the look which I quite adore.  I have an internal freakout (akin to finding lost treasure) every time I find a really good one. 

Take note, RZoe accessories with gold cuff and gi-normous cocktail ring.

Daily Boho Fashionistah – For running errands or sitting on a blanket reading a book in a park, I can think of no outfit to rival its comfort or cuteness.  Yes, I admit I used to shake my head when my mother wore her oversize muu-muu around the house, but this take will be different.  Think a soft cotton batik or ikat, braided belt with embellished gladiators, channelling Talitha Getty in Morrocco.  We should get an expert to pour us some mint tea and drink out of those delightful colourful, gilded glasses.  You’re digging it too, aren’t you?  

Good Evening Habibi (my darling) – A fancier caftan look involves two of my favourite things: chiffon + sequins.   A bit boudoir meets Arabian desert princess, paired with a smart pair of stilettos, you cannot go wrong.  This look goes best with a dramatic smokey eye.

Damn! Rachel Zoe in another AH-MA-ZING caftan, probably vintage. If there was a world war on best caftans, she would kill everyone.
