Caftans

Since Spring/Summer is practically round the corner now :) I decided to post a photo today of a popular piece of clothes and trend in the mid and late 60s: the Caftan ensemble. Adopted from the ethnic groups of Africa and India it's an ideal item for Spring/Summer due to its freshness, comfort, and elaborate art. Nowadays that the Bohemian/Hippie trend comes back every now and then it's so easy to find them, and if you happen to live in a place where they're made by local artisans then that's where to get it from. I would recommend wearing a Hippie necklace with it, or one of those Budhist beaded rosaries. To add a modern/casual twist instead of mathcing trousers wear a pair of jeans.
