I love to wear kaftans on any given day at home, over my swimsuit at the beach or pool, or while on a summer vacation. Many of the pieces I’ve found over the years are so beautiful, it would be a shame to only wear them as a cover-up. Instead, I slip into these relaxed, breezy styles as often as I can, as I did here during our recent trip to Nantucket, occasionally adding a belt to create a more defined silhouette. The lightweight fabric feels comfortable on the hot summer days we are currently in the midst of. See below for my favorite kaftans to wear to the beach and beyond.
