The MuuMuu, A Beautiful, Casual Hawaiian Dress
Traditionally, the muumuu or mu'umu'u, commonly mistaken for a caftan, is a dress originating from Hawaiian culture, featuring bright floral patterns and Polynesian designs. The word mu'umu' u translates to "cut off" in Hawaiian because the dress originally lacked a yoke. Today, the muumuu dress remains a wardrobe staple and comes in a wide variety of prints, lengths, and materials, all while staying true to the free-flowing shape of the original.
While there are styles of this garment made for lounging and sleep, the majority of muumuus are fashioned as day wear. The versatile style of dress is available in short, mid, and ankle-lengths. It also comes in sleeveless styles and various prints and patterns.
Contrary to popular belief, muumuus are not just an old-age fashion. Muumuus have been worn by many style icons, and can evoke a look that's quite glamorous. Muumuus are for more than just lounging. Whether dressed up or dressed down, there's truly a muumuu look for everyone.
