Go Kaftan Or Stay Home!
We’re going kookoo for Kaftans here at DoubleJ! The ideal summer-time cover-up, they’re not only chic-as-can-be (especially when they come in 100% silk or slinky terry cloth; like ours), they’re also versatile – for all you pool-lounging-to-cocktail-hour kind of gals.

We know the summer days may be long, but there are only so many hours in a day for wardrobe changes.Whether you’re matching them with a pair of Marni pool slides at high noon, or throwing on some stilettos when the sun goes down, a maximal Kaftan is your secret weapon for a smooth sartorial transition. With three eye-poppingly amazing, 1960s-era vintage prints to choose from: under-the-sea inspired Polipo Blu, Fenice with its Phoenix and feathers motif, and blue and red colour-bomb, Onde. Simply toss one over a string bikini and you’re channeling Jackie O in her Pucci Kaftan and fashion-turban phase. We know you have those pics tacked up on your moodboard, we doo to.
Complete with a plunging neckline, sweeping bell sleeves and a sky-high slit, the vamp-level on this otherwise modest cover-up is through the roof. You may not – gasp! – even need to mix and match it with any other pieces (as committed maximalists we find that very hard to admit). But that doesn’t mean you’re off to hook with accessorising. Pile it high with vintage gold chains, massive earrings, a sun hat as wide as your arm span and statement sunglasses that do the talking for you.
