Gone are the days when the dupatta was seen as the ‘most stylish’ item in our ensemble, making it a compulsory add-on to our party dresses. In today’s generation, it’s just a hassle - difficult to carry and even more difficult to manage! That is the sole reason why people search different ways in which they can ditch that annoying piece of fabric and still look fab.
No worries, we are here to help you revamp your wardrobe with a total dupatta-less trend - a KAFTAN.
More and more people are switching their regular Indian outfits with these long, flowy and super-comfy fashion essentials, and why shouldn’t they? Kaftan guarantees a comfortable and carefree time, be it day or night, indoors or outdoors, without making you worry on the style department. It also dutifully fulfils the sole reason why a dupatta was discovered and used - to cover the bust area.
You can totally rock the diva look by choosing a kaftan that suits your taste and body type. It is available in a plethora of designs and palettes, meeting every season and reason. Party, date, wedding - these must-have pieces are there for every occasion. All you need is a little help with styling, and there you go! Wear them in right fabrics (cotton, silk for a day-outing and satin, rayon, georgette, crepe, or any other man-made fabric for an evening function), with the right accessories (small totes, minaudiere, fancy clutches look awesome with a full-length kaftan, by the way) and shoes (like nude heels and wedges), and you can ensure several head-turns in your direction. You can even top your plain and sophisticated kaftan with an equally enticing jewellery piece - an elegant earring, a sleek neckpiece or soft bangles are there to save you from the fuss of over-doing the look.
All in all, kaftan is a very stylish multi-utility outfit that can help you go totally 90s with that ‘dupatta look’. So, why are still not aboard this raging trend this season? C’mon get on the ‘kaftan’ wagon and explore the comfort for yourself.
