The Summer of the Caftan

Effortless summer style, a caftan from Two, available at Juniper

Last month The Cut posted a hilarious little something about getting your body caftan-ready for summer (or for the caftan parties that are apparently the rage du jour in LA—Christina Hendricks is a HUGE fan), and it struck me as the perfect counterbalance to the barrage of bathing suit advice that comes with the season. Bathing suits are great if you’re a swimmer or sunbather, but caftans are amazing for almost every other hot weather leisure time moment (including post swimming and sunbathing). Plus they’re comfy and forgiving. I’m a huge fan.

Coincidentally I was at Juniper in Madrona, one of my favorite shops, and spied a cool collection of caftans, from Two and Virginia Johnson, for the woman who is interested in rocking the look while still looking chic. Here are some of the ones that caught my eye. Check in with Lisa at Juniper for currently availability.
