A hallmark addition for a wandering heart, the CAMILLA kaftan is an honorary silhouette reimagined with new prints each season. Designed in both floor length and short cuts, these crystal embellished beauties can be styled a myriad of ways through the CAMILLA style guide for perfected resort looks to elevated evening events.
Your perfect kaftan
A CAMILLA kaftan is more than just a beach cover up; it is an eye-catching, gaze-holding expression of the woman wearing it. Long kaftans are perfect for summer; days beside the water, afternoons that stretch long into the night and through it all, an eye for bold fashion.
Certainly, you could wear a top and a skirt, and there’s plenty here to choose from. But for the ultimate in ease and comfort, kaftans, marvelously, work for any occasion.
Perhaps you’ll be throwing yours over salty skin and damp swimwear at the beach, after a day of bare toes in the sand. Maybe you will be slipping it off beside the pool before a dip between cocktails. You may just be wearing it for a night of dancing by the water. A CAMILLA silk kaftan is the ultimate in relaxed summer wear, the perfect day-to-night dress that will take you from pool to rendezvous.
Find a print that brings joy to your summer days; choose between dark and mysterious or rainbow brights, wild geometric or bursting florals, shades of the ocean or of desert states. Every single beautiful print tells a unique story about where it has come from and the woman who wears it.
Long kaftans: Find a kaftan that suits you
However you like to wear a beach kaftan, CAMILLA has a shape for you. If your shoulders love the sun, opt for one with button up or split sleeves. If you adore the feeling of silk grazing your feet, choose a maxi dress. For versatility, you’ll love the wide-neck style that turns into a one-shoulder style. A waistband shows off your figure, while a billowy scarf style embraces utter relaxation.
Finally, look for details that make a kaftan your own. Pleats, a tie, a smattering of crystals… Whatever makes your heart sing is what makes the perfect kaftan.
What is kaftan style?
Traditionally, kaftan style is associated with beach or resort wear, perfect for wearing over swimsuits. But bold women who want to take their beachy boho look to the streets pair their kaftans with relaxed accessories such as espadrilles and raffia bags to create the ultimate kaftan style.
How to wear a kaftan
For days at the beach or beside the pool, style your kaftan with a CAMILLA bikini, a large floppy sun hat and a pair of luxe sandals, wedges or espadrilles. Carry everything you need in a spacious beach bag. For evening wear, swap the sandals for a pair of strappy heels and add your favorite CAMILLA jewelry. Slip the essentials into an embroidered CAMILLA clutch and hit the town.
What to wear under a see through kaftan
If you’re poolside or on the sand, a sheer kaftan over your swimsuit is boho chic. It works best if your swimsuit or kaftan is plain so it doesn’t get too jumbled. If you’re out in the streets, a plain slip dress works well under a see-through kaftan, or you can go casual in denim shorts and a crop top.
