Head British designer Lindsey Brown looks at how to mix and match outfits, ensuring that each designer kaftan or silk kaftan top can create many different looks for effortless style at any occasion.
Celebrity favourite, the Rumba handpainted beaded silk kaftan, is described as a ‘beach poncho’ by Lindsey, as it can be worn cleverly as beachwear or looks just fabulous over jeans for a glamorous outerwear look. Alternatively, team with cute white shorts and a delicate camisole for an al fresco lunch.
One of Lindsey Brown's most popular kaftan top, the stunning Manhattan. The Manhattan top is a fabulous addition to your holiday wardrobe as it is so versatile, this can be worn as a beach cover up over a swimsuit or bikini while you relax during the day, or alternatively wear over skinny pants and heels for a glamorous evening look.

The delicate sheer cobalt and aqua Mauritius silk designer kaftan is decorated with clusters of soft pink and gold beading and embroidery. Flattering all skin tones, the silk is hand painted and tie dyed to create a feather effect in blue and honey tones. Featuring three quarter length sleeves, the effect is slimming and elegant. Wear with swimwear on board a yacht or lounging by a pool, or up the ante by pairing with skinny white jeans, heels and pretty gold jewellery for a star-studded party.
