I'm Amped About Spring's Caftan And Tunic Trend--And You Should Be Too

I’m all about cozy knits and layers in the winter, but when the warmer weather hits, I just want to be light and airy—likely why I nearly lost it when I saw all sorts of amazing tunics and caftans come down the runway during fashion week. First there was the sepia toned caftan that The Row did—literally the most comfortable and chic looking thing I may have ever seen. Then there were the various versions done by the queen of boho, Isabel Marant. It doesn’t end there—a lot of designers incorporated flowy caftans and tunics into their spring collections—think Christian Dior, Haider Ackerman, Dries Van Noten and Rachel Comey—which drives me to believe that tunics and caftans will be what ponchos and kimonos were for winter. Basically, they’re a hot commodity, and it’s no wonder, considering how flattering they tend to be on just about anyone.

Personally, my love for the look started way long ago, when I was maybe five or six years old. I recall many nights when my mother would come down the stairs in these beautiful handmade caftans. She looked so effortless, and I wanted to be just like her. She’d bring them back from exotic places like Turkey, and wear them all summer long. It definitely resonated, because my spring/summer style is all about that light and carefree boho look. Even when tunics and caftans weren’t necessarily in style, I still loved to wear them. I’m just happy that now it’ll be easier than ever to find these super light tops and dresses. Actually, I already found 33 that I’m obsessed with—go take a peak.
