Your long time loyalty with Sivana continues to drive us to delight you with our unique assortment that we take great pride in curating for you. Setting your expectations and delivering to our high standard of exceptional customer service, is paramount to our team.

Over the last year and a half, we have navigated through unusual times that continue to bring challenges to how we operate. In recent months, we have been faced with unexpected supply chain hurdles, which inevitably result in product delays. Now with the added tension on global logistics as we move into the holiday season, we will only be able to guarantee Christmas delivery if orders are placed before December 1st. For that reason, we are offering everyone 25% off their order with code: THANKYOU25, as a thank you for shopping and supporting us early on as we continue to navigate through these challenges.

We will continue to release new arrivals throughout the month, but will not be restocking as we move into November. As always thank you for your loyalty.

Warm regards,

Sivana Team

Kaftan Dress

Kaftan Dress

Kaftan dresses have evolved over the years from traditional Islamic wear to modern, comfortable attire. Women opt for kaftan dresses for many reasons, including size, versatility, different styles, colorful patterns, AND contemporary designs. Read on to learn about how and when to wear kaftan dresses.

Why Should You Wear a Kaftan Dress?

Firstly, this attire is great for women of all sizes since it can cover your body from head to toe. It is also suitable for older women, so age doesn’t matter if you wear a kaftan. Secondly, comfortable materials such as polyester, silk, and cotton make kaftan dresses one of the top choices for nightwear and the beach. Thirdly, accessorizing this casual wear can transform it into an elegant or formal look. Jewelry, bracelets, makeup, and footwear go well with kaftan dresses.

How to Wear Kaftan Dresses?

For shorter kaftan dresses, a good idea is to pair them with jeans or add a belt to accentuate your figure. If it’s shorter kaftan attire, it can also be combined with shorts of the same print or pattern. On the other hand, you can accessorize maxi kaftan dresses with scarves around the neck, over your head, and around your arms. A jacket over a kaftan dress is an excellent choice, and there are various options on how to combine these two pieces.

Some of the bolder options are to pick a kaftan dress in an intense color or opt for a mandala or animal print. However, if your kaftan dress is in one color only, with no patterns and prints, add jewelry to it to complete the look. Short kaftans are an innovative and trendy option for younger girls, and they can be worn tucked into denim shorts, tights, and slacks.

If you’re still wondering which kaftan dress to wear, you can find many options on our website, from short to long, cotton to silk, and for the beach or formal events.
