It is time to ditch your formal bodycon dresses, casual jeans, and typical bridal attires (we’re looking at you lengha choli) because we’ve found a fashion trend that conquers all: The Kaftan. It is a magical piece of clothing because you can wear a silk one to wedding and a cotton one to your friend’s place. Nothing can be truly more comfortable and stylish than a Kaftan. Its loose fit flatters every body type and makes it perfect for the summer.
Wear this floaty number if you want to add an oomph factor to your look. Style it up with a messy bun, statement earrings, stilettos and you’re good to go. But first, let’s have a look at our top picks for the season.
She’s the one who made this trend mainstream with her embellished velvet kaftans. This season, we’re eyeing her raw silk ones with minimal embroidery at the neckline and hem. It is a perfect marriage of elegance with ease. We think we know what we’re wearing this Eid!

Are you bored of wearing the traditional white anarkalis, saris, and lenga cholis at weddings? It’s time to get some inspiration from this beautiful ivory and white embellished kaftan that looks chic yet comfortable. And the design team has gone a step ahead and introduced cold shoulders to make this kaftan stand apart from its fellows.
Next up, is this Cobalt blue kaftan because who said you need to stick to a warm mellow colour palette when it comes to kaftans? This Sania Maskatiya kaftan from her latest Eid collection, Gardenia, is what we need to make statement!
Our favourite amongst the lot is this casual kaftan spotted on Mahira Khan. This was her airport look and we plan to copy it real soon because a loose fit gown is all you need on a long tiring flight. And what’s more, it doesn’t compromise on the style quotient at all. Next time you’re in a fix and can’t decide what to wear to a casual gathering, opt for kaftan and make a statement!
