Kaftans for the Party Season

Shopping for any celebration is a happy time, especially from a fashion perspective. With each new season designers thrill us with innovative apparel choices, and the upcoming festive season is no exception. Christmas in particular is a time for enjoyment and celebration, so there’s no better excuse to treat yourself to some elegant threads.

Now of course with December beckoning, for women this is the time to go all out and look your best. After all, if you can’t make a special sartorial effort around the Christmas and New Year season, when can you?!

However, it’s astonishing how stressful the preparation period can be, especially where choosing an entire new season’s wardrobe is concerned. But in an age where we “buy now and pay later”, fashion-savvy females are no strangers to going the extra mile in order to stay looking stylish.

Kaftan fashionSo what are some of the best clothing choices for this year’s season of goodwill? There is no magic rule book for what classes as the number one outfit choice, but we can take the time to have a look at the following points for some inspiration in the process…

The Kaftan

You may not immediately picture a kaftan to wear around the Christmas period, but it’s surprising just how fashionable designs have gotten over the years, so do not rule this garment out just yet. Light and flowing to wear, kaftans are essentially wearable pieces of art due to their versatile variety of prints. If you’re looking to browse through a decent range of kaftans online, you’re in for a treat with the Queen of Kaftans, CAMILLA. Here you will find kaftans of all lengths, prints and embellishments. The good news is that this resort wear essential is designed to flatter the figure, so there is every excuse to buy one. And did we mention that there are different ways of tying the kaftan and creating new looks with the one garment? Winning!

History of the Kaftan

A trend that has become hugely popular since the 1950’s is wearing poolside clothing and beach wear to places other than the seaside. Enter the kaftan. This daring yet delightful trend is here to stay with the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Beyonce all being huge supporters.

The kaftan initially stemmed from the late 60’s and 70’s when hippie culture was at the height of its popularity. Kaftans are very simplistic garments that are usually worn over the top of other clothing choices. However, they can also be worn on their own as a stylish dress. Originating from the Middle East, it used to be that kaftans were mainly worn to cover a male or female’s modesty. But as fashion has moved on, so has the kaftan’s purpose.

Kaftan Styles

Whether you’re a secret hippie at heart, you love to channel Bohemian style like actress Sienna Miller, or you just need an iconic party piece that’s different from the norm, the kaftan definitely appeals to a variety of lifestyles. It is a feminine garment that comes in printed, embellished or plain designs, depending on the designer or retailer. The length of a kaftan can also vary, but recently, shorter editions have been on the fashion menu for many women. So if you want to dress with ethnic flair this season, look no further than the kaftan.

Monster ‘Lip synch’ Tour… is what Rihanna and Eminem should call theirs!

The truth is that many concert goers felt like they just tossed their money on to the trash when they reportedly alleged that Rihanna and Eminem didn’t fully performed in their concert at the Rose Bowl, where the audience experienced two hours and a half hours of pure lip synching.

We received opinions from people who went to the concert in LA, and though they were thankful because the artists chose their city to inaugurate their tour, but claiming the show was “Live”, many agreed it was saying a little too much.

They said:

“Sure, he let the backing track do the vast, vast majority of the heavy lifting last night. He was only actually, audibly rapping on a handful of songs, including slower ones like ‘Stan.’ His lip-synching was especially obvious because he’s so animated, constantly gesticulating in a way that pulls the mic away from his mouth, mid-lyric.”

Wow, that has to be terrible, paying for something and expecting so much from a super stars and them just not delivering, but “at least Rihanna didn’t lyp sync that much :

“She was actually singing on that one, and in general you could hear her live voice much more often than his”

We’re just really bumped out with this. If all this is true.. that it is not just a rumor, these two talented music super stars should be performing the whole show live, no excuses accepted! Dudes you’re Rihanna and Eminem!! Act your part!

Lorde truly shows to be the voice of this generation! Speaks Rihanna and Bare skin!

Dear Lorde, you keep making us proud!

In an interesting interview where she expressed why parents or people in general should not be worried about how a woman dresses:

“People should stop worrying about their daughters. I don’t see a female without clothing as a terrible influence. There are worse or things. Shooting people. Glorifying violence.”

Or Death, or drugs.. among other things!!! It is true, there’s too many things going on in this world to stop worrying about WHAT is WHO wearing and such… Well said Lorde!

But Lorde had another “Royals” annoucement to make… why she’s on Team Navvy !

“You can’t not look at Rihanna. I would buy anything Rihanna sold me. The way Rihanna embodies being a sexual woman…She’s so fearless and confident, I just love her.”

We must say that out of many other artists Rihanna has had certain highness in her whole fashion and music statement! So Lorde we got you covered girl! She is definitely in love with the idea of being queen, but she sure knows when to recognize one when she sees it!

TLC disses Rihanna for showing so much skin!! ALL THE TIME!!

It all points that Rihanna‘s outfit has pushed a few buttons, this time TLC. While everybody was in awe with Riri’s awesome and sparkly dress, not to mention VERY see through, the 90’s girl bad wasn’t THAT impressed!

Rihanna

Back in Australia T-Boz commented about Rihanna:

“Every time I see you you don’t have to be naked. It’s easy to sell sex. It’s hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, ‘Oh TLC must be jealous’, but I call a spade a spade.”

Errr’ Body down, the grenade has been thrown! Well i guess she wan’t alone when Chilli added her ideas saying:

“We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot. We could go around too with booby cakes out all day long…”

iHeartRadio Music Festival Las Vegas 2013 - Day 1

They actually could and people will actually buy it, since sex sells. But as a personal thought on this, it is true, most new artists are selling TOO MUCH SEX, and the image they give to young girls is a very distorted one, it ruins the way men and people in general see women.

TLC is on the overall is saying that Rihanna sells only because she uses her body as main advertisement to gain success, the easy way to the top. We would have to disagree a bit, since Rihanna has true talent, she’s been a hit singer way before skin showing, but in the fact that girls now days show “cover a bit” more and give a substantial content in their art to become a leading example to the youngsters like our 80’s and 90’s role models used to be, would be appreciated.

Any ways Rihanna looked gorgeous and if she slows down a bit, it’s all cool!
