If you’re anything like me then you love yourself up some caftan. I’m seriously debating giving up all other clothing. I really do have some awesome caftans.
But there’s a problem: I live in San Francisco and I’m cold most of the time. I need to wear a coat almost every day and I can’t find anything that works over a caftan, and Mrs. Roper isn’t any help.
A friend told me that she thinks caftans are only for warm weather but I’m not willing to give in yet. So I tried some potential outerwear for my favorite caftan.
First I tried my current favorite coat. I figured, it’s 60s and caftan’s are 60s, so it has to work:
So I tried a sweater, sweaters go with everything, right?
Then I thought, if the conservative ideas don’t work, try something from the left field! Like a track jacket!
But maybe a puffer?
Well, I guess it depends on what you’re going for. It works for The Crazy Woman Look but I was going for Pleasing To The Eye. So I’m going to go with NO!
A light day coat?
My last idea was as good as it got. I was sure that my trapeze coat from the 60s would go because at least both of them are gold.
This is probably the best combination, but I was hoping for something less formal.
What do you think? Am I going to have to give into the idea that caftans are only warm weather attire? Or does anyone have any ideas?
