Embellished garments are naturally elegant, dressy and ideal to wear at night time or special occasions...however during the last few years’ sparkly garments have made the leap from formal, to casual and everything in between.

Good news is, there is a lot more you can do to style you embellished outfit, so you can wear them even at the school gate….read on to learn more ways to accessorize your  Vizcosa kaftan.



If your kaftan is short wear it with a pair of denim jeans or Capri pants, and add wedges or embellished sandals. This appearance is casual and looks very smart for a day out shopping without looking overdressed.


Keep accessories small: when going out to dinner: If you are wearing a heavy beaded kaftan and would like to look a bit understated, wear plain stud earrings or plain gold hoops, to give the clothing an effortless feel while looking stunning


Cruise ship glamor: Don’t be afraid of flaunting an embellished kaftan at the poolside over your swimwear, just ensure to keep your choice of shoes flat and hair and makeup minimal. We love this look because every woman deserves to feel a million dollars even while just lounging and sipping cocktails on holidays


And for the office: neutralize a fancy sparkling kaftan top with black loose trousers and ballerina flats or simple black pumps


There you have it, be sure to give some of those tips a try and elevate your style from nice to wow without sacrificing comfort. Ah!  And let us know if you have other tips you would like to share
