Bored by sun dresses and board shorts? Fortunately, the very regal-looking kaftan is just as summer-ready. And Nordstrom shows us how to rock it with the least amount of fuss possible. Check out the look below!
Love it? We break it down for you so you can assemble a similar look with items you already have in your closet.
1. The Long and Flowy Kaftan
The bigger and more flowy, the better! Kaftans are crazy cool for the summer because of their loose fit and their high styleability. You can wear them as a cover-up but you’ll be surprised on how they can double as dresses. Just change accessories and you’re good to go.

2. Mix-and-Match Bikini
For a fun surprise underneath the kaftan, choose a mix and matched bikini combo! The more obtuse color, pattern, or material pairing, the better.
3. Straw Fedora
The floppy, wide-brimmed hats are the typical match for kaftans so keep things interesting by opting for a tidy fedora. You sure to stand out in the sea of boho plus a fedora fits snugly in your beach bag.
4. Colorful Round Specs
Round specs are hot this season! And those with punchy color combos are the most popular. It’s the best way to accent your look and your face with some electric hues without resorting to makeup all the time.
5. Pretty Beach Waves
Hair is ALWAYS a huge part of an outfit. And for a kaftan, your best bet are pretty beach waves. Carefully choose your leave-in sprays, make sure they protect your locks from sun and damage while helping you achieve the desired luster and volume for your summer look.
6. Damage-Free, Sun-Kissed Skin
Don’t let sun-damaged skin ruin your well-thought out kaftan look. Give your skin some TLC after being out in the sun. Drink lots of water, moisturize, and put on some balm to help protect and repair your skin.
7. Statement Necklace
To accent your imposing kaftan, a statement necklace is the best choice. From chunky designs to cheerful charms, really any loud necklace will do. So the challenge will be picking one that fits our personality.
