Cover-up: Caftan & Kimono♥

Ooh SUMMER!  COVER-UPS are the season's must have... actually you can wear them any time of the year.  Aside from wearing it over swimwear you can also use it on: tank top + shorts/jeans, jumpsuit or dress.  The first cover up I had was like some kind of over-sized shirt, but through the years: the traditional caftans and kimonos were reinvented to become the modern day statement cover-ups (stylish robes).  Made from flowing, sheer garments either sleeveless and long sleeves: Fringes, tassels were added to give it a new twist... Length varies from short to ankle or floor length.

Here are my choices of cover-ups that you can find locally: (in no particular order)
