Turkish fashion at its best – Part 1

Standard

Hey ladies,

As a continuation of my previous post ( check it out here ) I wanted to share with you more ideas how to look fabulous, modest and modern in the same time. As I wrote in other occasions, my opinion is that Turkish fashion for women has developed so much that helps women keep being delicate, feminine and modern, that’s why I love this style sooo much. I hope it will be helpful and you will enjoy the outfits.

Don’t feel shy to tell me your opinion….Enjoy!

Until next time XoXo.

Moroccan caftan

Standard

The caftan, or kaftan, is the traditional dress of Moroccan women. In the era of the Sultans, the caftan was worn by both men and women.When the caftan came to Morocco from Turkey, it became primarily an article of women’s clothing.

Caftan is  loose-fitting, but is usually more elaborate than other Moroccan traditional garments like the jalabia, because it is worn more often for special occasions.It is a long dress in the style of a robe. Caftans are made of either cotton or silk. They are ankle-length and can be fastened up the front with buttons. A sash around the waist completes the outfit. Some caftans are designed with elaborate colors and patterns, and other styles are much simpler.

The traditional wedding dress in Morocco is caftan,although some women prefer Western wedding dresses to be more modern.Caftans designed for weddings can be very elaborate, with brightly embroidered floral patterns in a variety of colors, including green, red, dark brown and white. The sleeves are full and very wide.
