There's something exotic to me about a caftan, I conjure up images of Morocco and Capri. I envision Jackie O walking the White House in a beautiful silk one. In the 60's, my pretty mom wore caftans around the house all the time. Comfortable, flattering (extra weight....where?), feminine, and visitor appropriate. Also, for me, I think a caftan is a better alternative to a robe. No worries that something could be showing when the neighbor or my 8-year-old's friends stop by...my silk robes never seem to stay put!
So K & C...here's the spring floral caftan I want for Valentine's Day..and no "Mrs. Roper" jokes.

By the way, caftan or kaftan is a Turkish word, and a 'c' or 'k' is correct!
