Caftans, Not Muu Muus

Caftans, not Muu Muus

Caftans - a long, full, usually collarless robe with wide sleeves that is worn at home for lounging or entertaining or at the beach as a cover-up.

"Caftans are just the perfect solution to what to wear at home." Says Mad Men's Christina Hendricks in an interview by Sarah Miller in Lucky magazine's June/July issue.





This statement gave me pause.  I immediately googled caftans and realized these are not your Mothers over-sized shapeless shifts.  No muu muus here.  

Instead you will find sexy, low-cut styles in fabulous colors with varying lengths to suit all body types.  

No more sweats and t's for me.  Now you'll find me clothed in a vibrant caftan and feeling brilliant and comfortable.  

My love approves!

What do you think?  Is this a style you would be willing to try?
