The easiest way to get a kaftan is to turn an old scarf into one. It's as simple as folding it and stiching the sides. This kaftan was something I found in a random street store and its price is what attracted me towards it. Of course the gradient stripes were an added bonus and I just knew I had to shoot this at the beach. When it comes to beachwear, minimal style is the best style. Keep things simple and I assure you, you'll enjoy it loads. 

Tips to Dress for the Beach on A Budget: 
  • Look for prints that keep things interesting. A simple scarf tied as a sarong can look unique and not be too heavy on the pocket. 
  • Beachwear is defined by your accessories. If you can't quite invest in an outfit, look for accessories that are fun. Think reflective sunglasses or a floppy hat. 
  • Prints make everything better. Look for dresses in tropical prints, florals and bright colors. 
  • Don't forget that the most important thing is confidence. Don't worry about what you look like, just remember to let the waves bring you peace and calm!
