Calling all Caftans

Yesterday I shared one of my favorite summer time pieces of clothing to wear with this easy and casual caftan look. Caftans are a great addition to the summer wardrobe because they are so versatile and can be worn in so many ways. They are also airy, light and cool enough for warm summer days or just enough of a cover up for the breezy nights. I wore mine as a day time/night look with skinny jeans and casual heels, but typically on any given day you will most likely see me wearing these airy pieces with cut-off shorts or wide leg pants and flip flops. Typically, caftans are meant to be worn as bathing suit cover ups, but when you put on a gorgeous cover up I find that I either don't want to take it off once I get to the beach or pool, which then causes terrible tan lines (no thank you) OR I barely have any chance to wear it except for during the walk to our destination, what fun is that? 

I love taking articles of clothing and wearing them as many different ways as I can to get various looks and to get as much use out of my clothes as possible because I feel so much less guilt when I make a purchase and can already think of about 5 ways I am going to wear it.

I have gathered up some of my favorite printed caftans to make it easy to shop this look. I think having a great bathing suit cover up for the summer is a must and I love even more that its a bonus that you can wear this type of cover up in so many ways.

You can shop all of these looks just by clicking the pictures above. Which ones are your favorites? Can't wait to see how everyone styles their pieces.
