"A caftan is merely a base for statement jewels."

Is that quote accurate? Why or why not?

How about earrings?

by Tasha Greenreply 101/06/2013

Earrings and bracelets only. A classic caftan has too much going on at the neckline to go with a statement necklace.

by Tasha Greenreply 201/06/2013

The xl will work.

by Tasha Greenreply 301/06/2013

Caftans are nothing but gay Burqas.

It's useless to try and accessorize them.

A caftan hides one's fat rolls!

I think, when you are pretty it doesn't matter how you wear your hair.

Was this Allan Carr's life philosophy?

Sashay shante!

A caftan is flamboyant cry for help by people who for a start need help getting dressed.

I think they are lovely to lounge poolside at sunset. With a turban and a big jeweled brooch.

by Tasha Greenreply 1202/23/2013

Mrs. Roper always thought so.

I need to go on a diet. I'm moving past caftans and straight into muu-muus.

by Tasha Greenreply 1402/23/2013

Even the Pope wears caftans.

What's the difference between a caftan and a mumu?

Kaftan, Caftan or Muumuu ? The difference between the caftan and the muumuu is that the caftan is fierce:

Muumuus, Float Dresses, Patio Dresses, & Housedresses

Muumuus, float dresses, and patio dresses are all A-line dresses that reach somewhere around the knee. The top of the ‘A’ starts at the shoulders or bust, and the garment gets wider and wider from there down. Housedresses don’t usually have such an ‘A’ shape, but they are still loose and “housy.”

Now, caftans are similar to muumuus and housedresses, but they usually reach the calf—or ankles if you‘re short enough. They tend to be more colorful than housedresses, and they seem to have long sleeves more often than muumuus or housedresses.

I must lead an incredibly sheltered life as I don't believe I have ever seen a male in a caftan, and only a very few females.

by Tasha Greenreply 1902/24/2013

I'm baaAACK, boys!

by Tasha Greenreply 2002/24/2013

I'd wear caftans but would be self-conscious about it, like I'm just mindlessly perpetuating a stereotype. But I like being femme, so it's not a matter of conformity but just what feels comfortable for me.

What does one wear UNDER a caftan?

by Tasha Greenreply 2202/24/2013

[quote] What does one wear UNDER a caftan?

One's fat.

by Tasha Greenreply 2302/24/2013

Personally, I find that undergarments add a level of security to my ensemble..

by Tasha Greenreply 2402/24/2013

A caftan is a piece of clothing worn by those who want to be comfortable. It originally was worn by men in Persia, and then was adopted by women. It is also a modest garment, for those who don't have to wear something tight in order to entice someone to sleep with them. In years past, you could find them being worn by members of royalty, celebrities, and designers from YSL to Versace -these designers also created beautiful versions of them. However, in today's over-sexualized society, where men & women have to show every bit of skin and wear things so tightly they look like prostitutes 24/7, the once revered caftan is now seen as only a garment to hide body fat, when it in fact is one of the oldest & classiest pieces of clothing you can wear.

A statement about caftans is just a base for those who are merely repeating tired DLisms.

Chunky bracelets are a must.

by Tasha Greenreply 2710/16/2013

chunky is RIGHT

by Tasha Greenreply 2810/16/2013

You know, there was a time when almost ALL evening wear was caftan-shaped or at least had a caftan motif going on.

by Tasha Greenreply 2910/17/2013

It is.

by Tasha Greenreply 3002/06/2014

The correct statement is "A caftan is merely a canvas for fabulous accessories."

Some of the most effective statement accessories I have encountered among caftaniers have included non-jewel treatments, such as feather rings, matching wooden chunk-block bracelets and necklaces, and Victorian memento mori mourning hair lockets.
