Very popular in societies all over the world, Kaftans have become a fashionable summer garment perfect for a hot beach holiday, or for just lounging around in comfort at your home, they are especially suitable and convenient to wear in place of a dressing gown because they will not gape open if or when you have to answer the door to a caller. Kaftans are also very useful to wear in hospital because they are loose around the sleeves thus allowing room for your blood pressure to be taken for instance. You can also wear your kaftan at home afterwards while convalescing. Whatever you choose to do, you can always be confident you look great in a kaftan. Available in many different colours, styles, shapes and sizes, kaftans tend to be loose-fitting free-flowing garments with medium or long sleeves. They can be designed for hotter climates they are purposely made to be lighter and cooler, making sure you stay comfortable while strolling from your sun-lounger to the restaurant for a quick break from the sun. Kaftans can also be made from warmer fabrics making them especially useful and comfortable to wear during the winter months, or in naturally cooler climates. Popularised by 'hippies' in the 60s and 70s, the kaftan can still be bought in the 'hippy' style, however the designs have been updated for a modern fashion market, and are regularly seen on catwalks in some of the most fashionable cities in the world. Kaftans have been worn by hundreds of cultures all across the world for centuries - it was originally associated with Islamic countries, mainly because of the high temperatures.
