5 Ways of Styling a Beach Kaftan

Whether you’re heading to an Ibiza-style pool party or straight to the beach, a kaftan is the chic styling option for any day in the sunshine. Team Moroccan vibes with a 5* Dubai edge for glamorous summer kaftan looks, ready for the upcoming season. From simple full-length kaftans with a bold pop of colour to Moroccan prints and embellishments, style up your beach looks in one of these five ways and prove when it comes to summer-chic, you’ve got it down.

 1. Let the Beach Kaftan Make a Statement

Keeping your look simple and teaming your pool party cover-up with simple swimwear lets the kaftan make its own sartorial statement. Opt for kaftans with high-rise side slits for extra sass and all the leg.


2. Team Your Kaftan with Denim

 Layer up your kaftan with just the right denim shorts for a slightly more covered look. Allow your kaftan to fall over your shorts or add little front tuck to lift the hemline and show off a flash of denim. Finish the look with sky high wedges and an oversized braided handbag to carry all your pool side necessities.


3. Add All the Accessories

Dress up a simple short or full-length kaftan with just the right accessories and show that it’s all about the details. Add the perfect bag and layer on gold chains but the must-have accessories for this look is headwear and statement earrings.


Opt for oversized and “extra” when it comes to ear décor and headwear can be anything from an ultra-chic turban to a seriously glam wide-rim sun hat. Remember to add a draping ribbon around your hat for extra style points.


4. Belt It Up

A chic waist belt can completely transform how any kaftan looks and feels. Flowing, free and loose-fit are the nature of beach kaftans and pool cover-ups. However, simply add a waist belt to your look and instantly cinch your waist to create much more shape if you prefer a look that’s a little more fitted.


Choose a narrow waist belt for a subtle look or make an impact with a statement wide belt, the more embellishment and detailing, the better.  


5. Switch It Up with Stylish Summer Trousers

Switch up your summer looks and opt for loose-fit, ultra-chic summer trousers this summer for a look as unique as you. You can wear these flowing palazzo-style trousers solo or team them with a kaftan or kimono for a pool party outfit that’s sure to turn heads.


Teamed with a sleek one-piece swimsuit, opt for light-weight fabrics and pops of bright colours for the perfect beach vibe.
