Trend Alert: The Return of the Caftan

According to The Telegraph, the caftan is in and the sarong is out.

What the?! Did I really hear that correctly?

In my head, the first thing that jumped to mind were the mumu-esque swathes of fabric (read potato sacks) that do nothing for your figure, except perhaps hide it after a long winter in hibernation. So we’re all going to dress like fat Homer Simpson this summer. Are the fashion Gods ready to go back to rehab or what?

Then I found this: Diane von Furstenberg’s Caftanicon ($220 @ Nordstrom). Instead of looking like a dowdy old bed sheet that’s a sorry excuse for fashion, this knee-length, breezy linen cover-up with embroidered cutouts actually looks like something worthy of someone who still has a pulse. The plunging neckline plays peek-a-boo with your new bikini and the shorter cut shows off your legs. And for a touch of color, there’s this Vix Amber Caftan ($104 @ Bloomingdales) in striking Pucci-esque pink paisley or this nautical Echo Beach Metallic Knit Caftanicon ($68 @ Bloomingdales).

Now that’s what I call bringing the caftan back.
