Kaftans have been a favourite among Bollywood divas for quite some time now. Though these comfy outfit has been here for the longest time, we can say that Kareena Kapoor Khan's kaftan affair during the lockdown period served a big inspiration.
While we were all at home, there was nothing that could make us feel easy breezy than a roomy kaftan. However, now when things have started to get back to normalcy and we have begun to step out of our homes, it is not like that we would bid farewell to our go-to kaftans.
If you have been looking for some inspiration to carry your regular kaftan for an outing then here take cues from your favourite Bollywood divas.
Kareena Kapoor Khan
For her best friend, Amrita Arora's birthday bash, mom-to-be Bebo carried a printed kaftan. Her outfit by Rajdeep Ranawat looked like the comfiest party outfit ever! It had beautiful colours - olive green, red, yellow and brown. Kareena Kapoor Khan's choice of accessories with the look really worked like magic. Bebo rounded off the look with a pair of vintage sunglasses, golden hoops and a sling tan coloured bag. Though she earlier left her tresses loose, she later tied them in a high bun. If you are heading for a party, do note that your accessories can instantly lift any look. Pick a trendy pair of earrings and you are almost done!
Recently, Tara Sutaria was spotted outside a dubbing studio in this easy breezy kaftan by Arpita Mehta. Who said you can't carry a kaftan to work? Her grey kaftan had a beautiful minimal print which is just perfect for a regular day out. Tara Sutaria's choice of accessory with the look was a silver sling bag from Christian Louboutin. She kept her makeup minimal, in sync with the look, and tied her hair in a low ponytail. While rounding off your look, make sure you keep the print and colour palette of the kaftan in mind.
Soon after Bebo started carrying kaftans during the lockdown period, Malaika followed her footsteps. However, one look which she carried for an evening outing with her pooch is still one of my favourites. She wore a kaftan dress with crochet embroidery for a casual walk around. If you have a short kaftan like this one then you can carry it like a dress just like Malaika Arora. Her choice of accessory with the outfit was a pair of sneakers. Her hair were tied in a neat high bun. If you want to keep it simple but trendy then this can be your weekend getaway look.
Neha Dhupia's yellow kaftan from Zwaan’s spring/summer 2020 collection was one of her best work from home looks. She styled the trendy kaftan with a statement ring. Her blue and yellow kaftan had a slit on the side and Neha carried it beautifully! She rounded off her look with a messy high ponytail. When your kaftan is super stylish like this one, you should let it do all the talking.
Can you wear a kaftan dress to a wedding? Yes! Why not! Katrina Kaif's pick for a wedding was an ivory kaftan by Anamika Khanna. Her outfit had intricate multicoloured embroidery around the neckline. A pair of silver earrings were her choice of accessory with the wedding look. If you own a kaftan which has beautiful work like this one then you can carry it for a wedding event too. Pick traditional accessories to complete your look.
