Before your summer jaunt to the tropics, check out Shah’s of Sunset star Asa Soltan Rahmati’s boldly patterned collection of luxe-yet-affordable kaftans and travel in style.

FEMAIL chatted with the self-proclaimed Persian Pop Priestess about how the right coverups and accessories (self-confidence included!) can have you looking and feeling amazing by the water.

‘A kaftan with a gorgeous print is the definition of a perfect beach goddess look,’ says Asa. Read on for more of her glamour girl tips.

‘We are sexiest when we feel good and comfortable in our own skin – kaftans bring out your goddess super powers,’ says Asa.

Don’t over do it. ‘Beach glam is fuss free,’ she says. ‘That’s why kaftans are perfect, throw one on over a bathing suit and you’re good to go.’

‘I suggest pairing a sheer kaftan with a Brazilian bikini underneath,’ she says. ‘When the light hits the cover up, your curves can be seen through.’

Don’t be shy. ‘You have to own your body. Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Nobody is perfect, we are all beautiful works of art… in progress.’
