1. Camilla Kaftan
2. Chanel Resort '11
I was at a beach side cafe once when I saw a 20-something girl in a pink, white & yellow kaftan, wayfarers, bare-footed and fresh faced with her hair pulled back into a bun. That was three years ago and to this day I still hold that girl's look as the epitomy of effortlessly chic summer dressing. She looked so fresh, so cool. I searched high and low for a kaftan like her's, and while I didn't find one I became entranced with many others - the outrageously beautiful prints and hues are irresistable. While they may have these intricate patterns they are simultaneously simple, just something you throw on and walk out the door. They can be dressed up - heels, a myriad of jewelry - but that isn't what kaftans are about to me; they should be left uncomplicated.
