Breezy Summer Dresses from Two

Caftans, Dresses, and Tunics for Mom

two caftans!

You gave up gluten, passed on sugar, even subsisted on juice for a week. And still, those last pesky pounds of baby weight just won’t budge.

An alternate way to (love) handle the bulge: dreamy, drapey caftans, dresses, and tunics from new, local fashion line Two. The brainchild of a Brooklyn mom who wanted to look chic and feel comfortable in her postbaby skin, the one-of-a-kind pieces are sewn using Indian cotton saris and textiles.

Available in a range of lengths and styles, the light-as-a-feather, highly breathable cotton fabric makes it impossible to overheat. Trend-defying cuts flatter just about any body type (expectant mamas, that means you, too).

So you’ll be covered no matter what summer has in store (beach days, pool parties, trips to the park) — ice cream cone pit stops included.

Available at Erica Tanov, 204 Elizabeth Street, between Prince and Spring Streets (212-334-8020 or ericatanov.com); Rube, 156 Main Street, Amagansett (631-267-6117); online at twonewyork.com, $190-$330. For a private fitting appointment, email info@twonewyork.com.
