The glamorous Elizabeth Taylor wore one. Ditto for Truman Capote’s elegant swan, Babe Paley, and modern model Kate Moss. Iconic fashion editor Diana Vreeland proclaimed the caftan “The most becoming fashion ever created.” The forebearer to the maxi dress, the Caftan, has been around for centuries. This season we’ve brought back our best-selling Caftan in one of our favorite fabrics: a cool, ocean-blue striped linen.
The silhouette features an adjustable empire waist with a drawstring on its back, outfitted with a golden metal adjuster. Press the adjuster and pull to loosen or tighten the drawstring ties to create your desired fit.
This long flowing dress also features two sleek openings at either side seam (20-inches in length), making this piece easy to wear lunching by the pool, cocktails, or running about town.
For more info, check the “Sizing Details” tab—in The Tool Kit on the left—to ascertain the Caftan’s dimensions and determine what size will suit you best.
