I love a caftan. Mostly 'cause they're so nice and flowy and come in some wicked designs. Plus they're like the hippy's version of an abaaya. For example...
Holy Safari Batman! You could really get in touch with your animal side in this one!
I just love this one 'cause it's a mad colour.
They describe this one as 'Ethnic'. All I can think of is 'Woodstock'.
Here's my version. A little bit of abaaya mixed with a little bit of caftan. Gathered at the front with a little dangly thing at the back. That doesn't really have any function in my mind - just stuck it in for aesthetic reasons really. I would so do this one in a crazy pattern or just plain with the colar patterned. So many choices... gotta lova a caftan.
