Now I don’t know about you, but not many holidays go by without me acquiring a new kaftan, usually from a local market. I have so many of these, it’s a bit ridiculous, but each one reminds me of a holiday somewhere hot and sunny and I don’t like to part with them unless they’ve been to Manchester Airport and back at least a few times. This one I picked up in Alcudia Old Town, Mallorca. They’re great for chucking on over a cossie (I’m not one for exposure and burn easily too) and for a casual night out you can wear them with jeans and a heel.
In some ways, for me, they’ve replaced the sarong – I often take a couple of sarongs with me and they languish unloved in the suitcase. What do we think ladies? Are they a useful item in your wardrobe?
