For years when I saw the word “kaftan” on a shopping site I cringed. I grew up with a vision of kaftans (or caftans) as the large boxy polyester day dresses with crazy prints on them that stay-at-home older people lounged in (not necessarily fat people either because I had an skinny aunt who lived in hers).
The term kaftan is widely used in the UK for tops but they certainly have come a long way from the kaftans in my nightmares. The term is now being widely used in the U.S. except it is spelled with a “c”. Eloquii has some of the finest caftan tops I have seen. Here are a few of my favorites:
Eloquii offers sizes 14 to 24. These tops range from $30 to $65. FYI: The blonde model is Lizzie Miller.
