Because it is an essential part of our wardrobe, and because we are sometimes lost between the advice of the seamstress, our mother (or grandmother!) And our best friend, Hola Amor team gives you its tips for wearing the kaftans for women UAE without misstep.
No to the extra large belt!
If, like the author of these lines, you are less than 1m70, say goodbye to the mdamma over 6 centimeters wide which only compacts your figure. A rule that applies even if you wear heels (we will have warned you).
Yes to colorful caftans but Do you swear by colorful caftans? So choose a nude make-up and a rather sober hairstyle for a more distinguished look.
When to wear the caftan?
You can wear your caftan every day, in town, or elsewhere. You can wear the caftan at a wedding, at any ceremony. Namely those caftans are better for camouflaging your imperfections: big belly, etc. Wearing modern kaftan with lace is perfect for people of slim sizes. The princess-style kaftan is intended for people of a body type that requires discretion.
Attention to materials
If you do not have a slim waist, avoid rigid fabric caftans (brocade, duchess satin, etc.) with belt as well as three-piece caftans, much too thick. They do not enhance the figure. The same goes for those with rather large arms: sleeveless caftans are not flattering. And choose flowing fabrics like tlija, satin or chiffon instead.
We don’t make a Christmas tree
With an already very loaded caftan (in embroidery and / or crystals), we avoid the full set (buckles-necklace-matching bracelets). Instead, we prefer beautiful drop earrings and clear the back of the neck.
We modernize a retro caftan
To modernize a beautiful caftan of yesteryear, we replace the traditional mdamma with a mejdoul, which gives the room more allure. Or on the contrary, we highlight the traditional side of his caftan by choosing old jewelry. For example a mdejja in cultured pearls, lebba, or tekhmal.
We don’t forget its cape
Don’t hesitate to wear a traditional selham embroidered with tarz maâlem or a cape finished with sfifa or kitan details over a solid silhouette.
And for the refractory
Don’t you like caftans? A gandoura – ample and preferably neither belted nor adjusted at the waist – is always a safe bet. Accessorize with retro jewelry: vermeil necklaces for a baroque look, identical cuffs on each wrist for an antique look, or imposing drop earrings for more chic.
What shoe to wear with the caftan? The ideal shoe for your caftan usually depends on the caftan itself as well as your body type. For some women a court shoe will be fine while for others not. At the party, choose a pair of gold or silver shoes.
