The caftan was first introduced in Persia around 600 B.C. and was known for its beautifully sweeping and ethereal silhouette. The print and material in caftans may have changed throughout the ages, but the flow is still the same. Without further ado, we’d like to reintroduce the caftan. A little caftan goes a long way. These sheer overdresses are perfect on and off the beach. With their long sleeves and loose silhouette, caftans are boho chic to a T. The traditionally one size cover lets you flow freely and allows for air to billow any which way it pleases. The added ventilation that caftans produce during the hot and sticky summer months is much appreciated. Caftans are a no-brainer and an absolute summer must have.
