Kaftans were once looked upon as fashion faux pas and nobody wanted to be caught dead wearing one. It’s actually one of those things that can make a laughing stock out of you if you’re ever seen in it.

However, it seems that women then had more taste than women of the following generation because the Kaftan has now returned with a vengeance. This time, it has found its way into the fashion scene.

Kaftan Revived

Kaftans came back some time in 2001 and they haven’t left since. They are what designers deem as the sarong’s better replacement. While sarongs are usually straight cut and do not accentuate a woman’s curves, kaftans do more than just show off a woman’s sexy curves; they show off the sexy silhouette of the female form.
