20 Summer Kaftans That Will Have You Beaching In Style

If you don't have a kaftan already, you're going to want one...or three.

Beach season is upon us, and while we love a great swimsuit, we think a cover-up is just as important.

Meet the kaftan -- a tunic-style dress that makes for a perfect beach outfit. Just through it on top of your bathing suit, and you've got a stylish day outfit that's effortlessly chic. Even celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Blake Lively love them.

Kaftans can also work wonders on vacation, as they can take you from day to night with ease. Just add some jewelry and metallic sandals before heading out for your evening events, and you're good to go.
