Summertime Dressing: Caftan Chic

Summertime….pool parties, cocktails, and looking effortlessly chic!

Elizabeth Taylor and assorted jet-setters wore them all the time, Yves St. Laurent re-interpreted them in haute couture, and Halston made them famous in the 70’s and 80’s. Nothing says rich Bohemian elite better than putting on a caftan.

The caftan is the go-to summer garb for whatever shindig you’re attending this summer. Long, flowing, body-forgiving, the caftan is one warm weather staple that doesn’t require baring too much skin. So if you’re feeling your beach body isn’t quite perfect, the caftan is a glamorous and sexy answer to summertime dressing. A pair of chandelier earrings and great sandals is all you need to complete the look.

On Madison is getting ready to go on vacation, and you’d better believe we’re tucking in a caftan into our suitcase! We’ve assembled an assortment of caftan looks that will have you channeling your inner Boho!
