Somewhere in between the dashiki, muumuu, and poncho hangs the caftan, a hot-weather garment often worn in Moroccan weddings. Bridal designer Elizabeth Dye—based in Portland, Oregon—included the global style in her new Painted Desert Collection, a showcase of  bridal gowns that would feel right at home among the arches of Moab and the red rocks of Southern Utah.

We’re crushing hard on the Silvermine Caftan, which layers over the Silvermine Gown, and the Sonora Caftan Gown. The exotic looks are right in line with the adventurous, gathered-from-my-world-travels aesthetic that’s currently trending in fashion, home decor, and now weddings.
