Launder with like colors in cool water using the gentle cycle. Hang to dry or tumble-dry low and remove promptly..

Product Description

The glamorous Elizabeth Taylor wore one. Ditto for Truman Capote’s elegant swan, Babe Paley and modern model Kate Moss. Iconic fashion editor, Diana Vreeland proclaimed the caftan “The most becoming fashion ever created.”  The forbearer to the maxi-dress, the caftan has been around for centuries.

This season we’ve brought back our best-selling Caftan in one of our favorite fabrics: a wonderfully weighty 3-ply black crepe that drapes the female form beautifully. 

The silhouette features an adjustable empire waist with a drawstring on its back, outfitted with a golden metal adjuster. Simply press the adjuster and pull to loosen or tighten the drawstring ties to create the fit you desire.

This long, black flowing dress also features two sleek openings at either side seam (20-inches in length) making this piece an easy one to wear alone or layered over another like our Take Along Tank. Perfect for lunching by the pool, cocktails, or running about town in balmy temps.
