Kaftans can effortlessly be paired with almost any kind of bottom. Jeans, Chino pants. Elegant pants, basically the possibilities are endless. They are timeless and a staple must- have for every man! A way to transform from basic to stylish is to have a pop of colour in your Kaftan. Think of amber yellow, navy blue, charcoal grey or the classic black. Note that uniform colour should be worn underneath kaftans. For example, you should only pair a white kaftan, with white pants. This will make all the difference in elevating your final look.


Style Tips:

  1. Always pair dashiki or prints kaftan with plain pants and avoid pairing it with another print because of ruining the look.
  2. Add a belt or a small waist rope to the kaftan if it doesn't already have one.
