Purple is often associated with luxury and with the addition of gold coloured embellishment, the Makena short kaftan certainly has a luxurious feel to it.  Deep purple in colour with cobalt blue and sage green feather shapes create a mysterious and sensual feel.  Adding a little extra to the kaftan, the neckline is highlighted with gold coloured embellishment, as are a couple of the feather shapes.

Going to a glitzy pool party?  Makena would look fabulous over your favourite bathers paired with an oversized sun hat, funky glasses, and a big beach bag.  Heading out for a swish evening meal?  Makena looks fabulous with a black coloured slip (fantastic to deepen the colours of your kaftan) , black long pants, a pair of elegant sandals, and some sparkling jewellery.

Makena has allure, it exudes charm and mystery and is the perfect kaftan to sparkle in for casual dinner dates.  Allure, charm, and mystery, are not the only things this kaftan has going for it.  Makena has a fun side, you just need to see through the charm and mystery to see it.

Pair your Makena with shorts, jeans, or white capris, do the french tuck (and no, that is not some fancy gymnastics move), slip on your favourite sandals, and before you know it you have an amazing outfit to visit friends or hit the shops.
