It’s universally acknowledged that kaftans are versatile and easy to wear for days at the beach, cocktails around the pool, and summertime parties. But we’re not the only ones that have succumbed to their appeal: celebrities love kaftan dresses too!
Kaftans have been a Hollywood staple since the 1960s, and they’re just as popular today. In fact, kaftans are often chosen by some of our favourite celebrities to help them look as low key and youthful as ever.
Here are our five favourite kaftan-wearing celebrities, and some clever styling tips to help you replicate their looks:
Goldie Hawn always knows how to stand out from the crowd and bring sunshine into any room she enters. She certainly does that in this long length yellow kaftan dress, which compliments her naturally beachy style perfectly.
You can recreate this outfit thanks to our Warrior Princess long kaftan dress which has the same free spirit feel and bold combination of patterns as Goldie’s vibrant yellow version. Simply add black heels and a low key envelope clutch bag in a shade that will compliment your kaftan and you’re ready to hit the town. We love her.
Proving that kaftans aren’t just for the beach, Sarah Jessica Parker looks glamorous and elegant in her short length kaftan dress, which she wore for a dinner date. Loose and flowing, the kaftan skims over her curves, drawing attention to her slender legs and statement shoes.
The Nice mid-length kaftan dress replicates the pattern of SJP’s version almost identically, mixing together vibrant, spring-like colours to create a kaftan that will instantly make you smile. Pair with leather heels in a vibrant shade (we just love Sarah’s cobalt blue versions) to create an outfit that is perfect for poolside cocktails and wearing all summer long.
Animal print is a huge trend this season, with leopard and snake prints dominating runways all over the world. Never one to miss out on a fashion trend, Beyonce embraced this with the short leopard kaftan that she wore when sightseeing on holiday.
You can recreate this look in a softer and more understated way with our short Wild Thing kaftan dress in silk. Taking traditional leopard print and reinventing it in shades of red, orange and wine, this soft kaftan dress is designed to skim over your curves, making it universally figure flattering. Add an extra Beyonce touch by teaming your kaftan with oversized gold earrings and coordinating chunky gold necklaces and you’re ready to explore wherever the summer takes you!
Jennifer Lopez shows how important it is to think about your skin tone when shopping for a kaftan. The rich jewelled green shades of this kaftan look great when worn against her caramel skin and deep V of the neckline is a great choice for showing off her decolletage.
You can recreate Jennifer’s glamorous beach style with our St Tropez long satin kaftan dress. Offering the same rich green tones and animal print overlays, this kaftan dress also features crystal embellishment at the neckline to add an extra touch of glamour. Add simple flip flops and beachy waved hair and you’ll be ready to rock the beach like J-Lo.
The Kardashian clan are unlikely style icons for women with class and taste, but momager Kris Jenner proves that even a stopped clock is right twice a day with her effortlessly stylish holiday look. Pairing a vibrant paisley kaftan with a coordinating oversized satchel and hat, Kris is ready for a relaxing day on the beach. Every aspect of this outfit is covetable!
