5 Ways To Wear a Kaftan

Bring out your animal instincts with this popular Versace leopard print kaftan. What's a kaftan, you ask? It's traditionally a long flowing garment that has long sleeves, and is ankle length. But contemporary kaftans come in many lengths. They are extremely comfortable and easy to wear -- just slip it over your head. Though they're generally worn as a swimsuit coverup, but the styling opportunities are endless:

1. To work

I absolutely love the recommendations. I wish other types of kaftans were shown, for I've never worn them off the beach, but I'm sold on the urban outfits shown. Bravo!

I love this post!!! As manager for Colin Heaney, I am always looking for ways to inspire women to wear the kaftans year round. The perfect trans-seasonal garment, the Colin Heaney kaftans are stunning in the mini length for wearing with jeans in winter or the long length for summer elegance.

Thanks for the awesome suggestions there Polyvore x
