Caftans may conjure up images of Mrs. Roper, Miami Beach seniors, or maybe even your mom. However, much like the ubiquitous sweater-ponchos of last fall and winter, the once-dowdy caftan is no longer considered old-lady attire. With boho-chic styling and sultry, sheer fabrics, it’s no wonder caftans are making a comeback as poolside coverups.


Just imagine slipping this pretty blue caftan over your bikini and sipping Rum Runners while dangling your feet in the pool. Caftan by Delphina Swimwear available at Vivre.com.

Versatile and more stylish than a simple t-shirt coverup, caftans do double duty as casual wear when worn over a camisole and jeans. Red caftan by BCBG Max Azria available at Nordstrom.com
