For years my mother would come home from work and put on one these beautiful house dresses. And every time she walked around the house, especially if we had guest visiting she always looked presentable, sophisticated and comfortable. We'll today when she wants to lounge around the house she still wears one, but they have really evolve over the years. A kaftan(sometimes spelled caftan) is worn all over the world by men and women. And not only can it be worn around the house but many use it as a cover-up at the beach or you can put on cute pair of sandals and you'll have a chic dress to wear to a party. Although you can find kaftans anywhere (I even saw them at the beauty supply store) I think the one's offered at http://www.net-porter.com/ give a new twist to an old design. "The Kaftan" comes in many styles, lengths and colors so you'll never have a problem looking stylish around the house, the beach or a party.
