These 5 Robes Will Hook You On #RobeLife
We love a good robe. Fluffy. Silky. To the knee. Dragging on the floor. It doesn’t matter. We do prefer when it comes strewn across a freshly made bed, or propped up next to a walk-in shower. There’s something inherently luxurious about wrapping yourself in a robe, and something about that sneaky thrill of stealing one from your new favorite hotel.
But what is it about robes that oozes luxury? It’s indulgence. A robe is a personal and ritualistic. If you own one, you probably slip it on right after the shower without fail, or wrap it around yourself as you dance and get ready for a night out. And while we all secretly wish we could rock this cozy look for the world to see — like Rita Ora at the MTV European Music Awards or one of Mario Testino’s model friends in his Towel Series — draping yourself in a robe is a personal affair.
So, to help you pick out your new lifestyle accessory, we've rounded up five stunning examples of our favorite kinds of robes. Once you slip one of these on, we can't promise you'll ever want to lounge around without one. #robelife
Everybody needs a classic, white fluffy robe lying around. This terry cloth robe is perfect to dry off after a hot, steamy shower or to cuddle up with in bed when you should be getting dressed. This one's crafted with plush Turkish cotton, falls below the knee and has pockets -- of course. Buy it here.
SHORT & SILKY
This slinky little number is the kind of robe you slip on while you sip wine and let a face mask work its magic deep in your pores. It's also the perfect robe to pack for a getaway since it'll roll up into just about nothing. Ready to turn your hotel room into a spa, anyone? This silk robe is a limited edition designed by Celebrity stylist Mariel Haenn for Violet Grey.
THE BOY ROBE
Like your boyfriend's robe, but better. We adore this robe for it's simple yet put-together look with concealed pockets, piped collars and cuffed sleeves. It's effortlessly sexy for lounging around or whipping up banana pancakes on Sunday morning. We'd like to think that's exactly what the folks at Otis Batterbee thought when designing it, too.
With wide arms that swing and swish when you walk, a feminine, silky kimono should be a staple in any woman's closet. We love the modern twist on this one with sleeves that cut at the elbow and the delicate lace detail next to the deep, collarless neckline. You can find this luxe Carine Gilson design at Harrods.
Move over, Hugh. This contemporary twist on the mid-century Playboy robe is chic and flirty. We're swooning over this midnight-black velvet and that sparkle trim down the collar and along the sleeves. Champagne and pool boys not included with this over the top look by Morgan Lane.
