If you choose big long earrings, you can also add a bold bracelet to match, but avoid wearing anything on the neck.

How to wear embellished Garments September 05 2016, 1 Comment

 

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

5 Reasons to love Kaftans .. Number 3 is our favourite August 24 2016, 3 Comments

 

They are Elegant:

Kaftans have been the garment of choice for centuries in many cultures, they resemble power, elegance, and royalty. In modern days kaftans are made of silk, georgette, and beautiful fabrics, and decorated with stones to give them an even more special touch, whether you are attending a wedding a cocktail party or a casual lunch with the girls, you will always look the part wearing your favourite Kaftan.

     

    Light fabric, stays fresh and flows with the wind:

    If you are booking a holiday, packing a couple of Kaftans will not only take little room in your luggage but also keep the weight to a minimum. On the other hand, they are perfect to be worn on their own during warmer days, as they are very light and breathable. ( PS: you can always wear a slip underneath as the weather gets cooler)

     

     You will have more fun at the BBQ: 

    Knowing your kaftan keeps the big meal tummy in hiding it’s just priceless. Kaftans are meant to fit lose and a little ooversized so don’t be afraid, they will not look like a tent, they are simply flowy garments that are best when they fit lose. Now that is comfort with style.However, if you would like to add some shape, get creative wearing a belt or adding a knot at the back using the same fabric, it looks as beautiful and will showcase your figure if that is more your style

     

    You can wear them with different shoes and it will make a totally new outfit: 

    Wear heels for a wedding or cocktail occasion, preferably strappy nude, gold or silver for dressy events.

    Change to wedges or platforms for an afternoon lunch or a day out of shopping, this is a very smart and casual look. And don’t forget your flats while a day out at the beach or by the pool side.

       

      Will not lose shape with not stretch or shrink
