Dalila’s Kaftans

Kaftans, the modestly long flowing dress synonymous of the women of the Middle East, are also known as jalabiya and dara’a.

With the holy month of Ramadan fast approaching, the social calendar is filling up with Iftar invites and a stylish kaftan would make the ideal choice of attire.

The lovely ladies at Dalila’s Kaftans sent me this stunning red beauty, and I just had to share some clicks with you!


Dalila’s Kaftans is an online boutique stocking a range of kaftans from party-wear to casual, long to short, and they even custom-make kaftans for little girls. Based in London, the online store caters to customers all over the world.

My kaftan is made of beautifully light, flowing chiffon. The lining is made of comfortably breathable crepe.

Have a look at the heavy embroidery. Simply stunning!

The heavy embroidery has all been done by hand. The embellished crystals catch the light beautifully.

The neckline fastens like a choker, and the intricate detailing on the bodice takes center stage on this beautiful kaftan.

The bat-wing style sleeves makes this outfit very wearable and breezy for summer days, and they are lined with matching embroidery.


Given the heavy embroidery, this outfit does not call for any additional accessorizing. I kept my jewelry minimal; a simple silver cocktail ring with matching earrings and a pair of bangles.

I used bright red lipstick to match the fiery vibrant red of the kaftan.

The beautifully feminine, flowing chiffon called for spiky high-heels.

My kaftan retails for £199 and is currently on sale on Dalila’s Kaftans for £80.

Dalila’s Kaftans has a wide range of kaftans; from formal to casual, long to short, and in an array of bright, striking color shades. They even custom-make kaftans for little girls!

Best of all, Dalila’s Kaftans are free-size. Any given kaftan comfortably fits a UK size 8 to 18.

You can choose to add a belt to your kaftan. Adjustable belts can be bought separately from Dalila’s Kaftans.

These stunning outfits ship all over the world. You can choose between standard and express shipment. Via express shipment, I received my kaftan within 3 working days.


Given Dalila’s Kaftans are free-sized, these beautiful dresses are ideal for plus-sized ladies, and pregnant mummies-to-be.

Dalila’s Kaftans have also been seen worn as alternative, boho-style bridal gowns! Given the high-quality, comfortably flowing chiffon, I can envision these at a beach wedding with bridesmaids in matching kaftans!

The long, modest style combined with the very eye-catching embroidery makes this kaftan my go-to choice for the upcoming Ramadan Iftar parties.
