Probably the most popular place to wear a kaftan is…? The beach obviously! Take your beachwear up a level. Especially with Kaftans like the Alhambra featuring graceful broderie detail to really make your outfit pop. The lightweight materials will keep you staying cool while you get some sand between your toes. Paired with a pair on LJ’s Sunnies and you’re ready to go for a chilled out day on a sun lounger. Now we do fully believe that all bodies are beautiful and it doesn’t matter your size, shape ect, ect, but we know people get self conscious about some things, there’s always that little bit of yourself you’d rather hide away from others and being at the beach in your swimming cozzie brings out a lot of those insecurities. Throwing a kaftan on eliminates so much of that so your day isn’t spoiled.
