Wrap yourself in one of these comfy robes and feel your whole body relax.
Putting on a robe is basically a signal to your brain that it’s time to chill out. But just because that robe will probably never see the outside world, it doesn’t mean you should simply throw on any old thing.
With so many different choices out there, though, how do you decide which one to commit to? There are lots of fabric options from fleece and terrycloth to linen and cotton, not to mention short, midi, or long lengths, and a rainbow of color choices. You may even want a robe to top these pajamas or one of these lounge sets. So think about when you’re going to wear your robe. Do you want to lounge in it all day or is it a quick transition piece between bathing and getting dressed? Does it need to keep you warm? Do you prefer something light or heavy against your skin?
Whether you’re coming out of the shower, sitting down with a cup of coffee, or spending the day binge-watching your favorite show, here are our picks for your soon-to-be-favorite robe. Don’t forget to add a pair of warm socks.
