Last weekend, Iberostar Grand hotel bestowed upon me the gifts of comfort. Comfortable rooms, staff I felt uber comfortable around and best of all…comfort food. That said, it’s a good thing I brought the most comfortable piece of clothing I own with me…a kaftan dress! Now I know at first sight the kaftan dress can look a bit unappealing because of its voluminous shape and heavily printed nature but take my word a kaftan dress is a timeless staple for any woman’s wardrobe and is perfect for your next tropical vacation.
There aren’t many garments that translate as well as a Kaftan dress. You can literally dress it up or dress it down, wear it on a casual outing out, a backyard barbecue, chilling at home or heading to the beach, while still being able to wear it out and feel fashionable and glamorous in it. Plus, it’s perfect for women of all sizes and shapes thanks to it’s one size fit’s all feature. So on days when we feel a bit insecure with our bodies and wish to hide problem areas like the waistline and thighs a kaftan dress is the key to your heart ♥
I think my favourite thing about a kaftan dress is how it manages to obscure and caress the body at the same time. It moves with the wind and also with the body, so one minute your silhouette is completely hidden and before you know it you’re body is being emphasized depending on how you move.
After pulling this kaftan on several times over the weekend I’ve decided that I’m never leaving home without one when I’m traveling because I know I will always have somwhere to wear one. It is the perfect way to cover up in style. I wore it to open the door for room service when I wasn’t dressed appropriately, I wore it to breakfast when I couldn’t be bothered to get all dressed up. Someone left a package at the hotels security gate one evening for me, so I pulled on this very same kaftan, ran through the hotel lobby and took a golf cart up to the security gate to collect my package. Lastly I wore this lightweight, flowing garment while relaxing by the pool and for evening walks along the sand. Versatile right?!
Let me know your thoughts on this style of coverup in the comments below. Talk Soon. Nun Love, Natasha ♥
(My Kaftan Dress is from Jamaican/British designer Sandra Kennedy. I purchased this from her AGES AGO. It was quite a splurge at the time but it’s still going strong and in mint condition. If you scroll down to the end of this post there are a few alternatives you can check out!)
