For ease of packing and also simple summer styling, a kaftan is a holiday essential. This gorgeous blue-and-white-striped piece from Witchery has a simple rope tie, and is not only the perfect beach cover up, but can also be transformed into almost anything this summer…
1 The laidback loungewear
For long days spent reading and suntanning in the sand, a bikini and wide-brimmed hat are the perfect additions to your kaftan.
2 Beach to bar
One of the best things about a holiday is the seamless move from beach to bar. Throw on comfy block heels in bright summer-yellow, and tasseled earrings, and your kaftan is officially cocktail ready.
3 Street-style approved
Whoever said kaftans were for the Boho-inclined only certainly never tried this…With a mesh inset bikini and liquid silver tote bag, your look is elevated to street-style status.
4 Bronzed babe
Mix your kaftan with bold metal jewellery all in the same tone, and platform sneakers. Rose-gold and bronze work beautifully with a summer tan.
5 Athleisure, always
Because you might have to dash to the pool and swim a couple laps, or end up playing some sport, you should be prepared with this outfit. Tinted sunnies keep the look co-ordinated.
