Classic Caftans

Frances Valentine

If I had to choose my favorite go-to pieces in my wardrobe it would be my Frances Valentine caftans. They are so fun and easy to wear yet make such a statement. They are incredibly comfortable. They are so quick - one piece and you are done getting dressed. They are flattering on everyone. These caftans are not that big tent like style and give a nice long line. Unlike some caftans, these are quite opaque and don't require slips and such in under. 

They can easily go from errands to lunch to cocktails to dinner, especially with a quick change of shoes or jewelry. No dry cleaning required - they recommend using The Laundress Signature Detergent which is what I use on all my laundry anyway on the delicate cycle and then hanging to dry. You can find it here. It is all I use for my laundry. Once you try a bottle, you will be hooked.

Here are some favorites from the current collection.

So try rocking this iconic look yourself - add a straw bag, a pair of Jack Rogers sandals, and statement jewelry for a timeless look.

  1. Hi Beth,
    I love all my FV things but still haven’t purchased a caftan because I am worried about the length. I am only 5’ and am afraid I’ll lose some of the lower embroidery. How long are these? Thank you.

    1. The length varies depending on the size and the specific piece. Customer service can provide you the exact measurements.
