What to wear when hosting a party - consider a caftan for comfortable glam

The Oxygen Edit: Hostess Fashion

Fashion Advice

“I always struggle with what to wear at parties in my own home. Mostly we're talking semi-relaxed lunches and dinners. Somehow it feels wrong to wear heels or blazers at home, especially in the kitchen.
