The Colour Edit
This modern minimalist approach starts from the very basics. Just because it is 70s inspired does not have to mean a riot of loud colours! This more subtle approach to the 70s palette features lovely pastels and sun-faded yellows and reds next to classic staples like rich blacks and navy blues. Even the approach to prints is the same, be it the visually pleasing ditsy prints or the clean geometric. The effect is a subtle but lively summer feel. Like being in the country-side on a picnic. It’s a mood.
So how to achieve this colourful minimalist look for the modest woman? How about this Summer’s Green Kaftan? Here too, the modern minimalist tendency is on point. The body of the dress is double layered, for your modest needs, but the slightly transparent sleeves give a tonal effect to the whole look. And do take a look at that absolutely delicate bit of embroidery at the hem of the sleeves. This tone-on-tone bit of detailing really pulls the whole look together, and elevates it to something more special that just any old A-line dress. Then there’s the little buttons down the side! The more you look at this beauty, the more special it becomes. Just like the woman who wears it!
And if you want to layer and cover-up, the minimalist approach that Kayfi has adopted will help you there as well. This ‘Midnight Desert Kaftan’ pairs up perfectly with the Hide and Peek cover-up in Poseidon blue. The variety of prints match up perfectly to create a harmonious whole. Kayfi likes to think of what the woman of today really needs, and provide it to her, as she likes it!
If you really want to go bold, but still keep it subtle then Kayfi has got you covered. Why not try this Sun-kissed top in a lovely sunflower colour? The 70s just sing in this little cropped number with the pintucks at the neck and the little line of ruffles. To really bring the look together, Kayfi has the Sun-Kissed A-Line Skirt. The design style is quintessentially minimal, with sun-ray pleats that fall to below the knee. Put this on, and you will be a sun-ray come to life. Light up every room you set in to. As you like it!
