The whole wearing pajamas as real-life, out-of-bed-clothes thing has been having a (very long) moment over the last couple of years, maybe for obvious reasons: When a trend prioritizes comfort and ease, it’s easy to get behind.
Now that the weather is warming up around most of the country (slowly but surely), the silk robe is an outerwear contender once again. These are great for a lot of reasons, but most of all because — like all the best wardrobe staples — you can upgrade your whole outfit just by tossing one on. Plain solid or all-over printed, long or short, the silk robe is a super easy way to dress up even the most casual jeans-and-T-shirt look.
Here, we’ve rounded up six luxe-feeling robes that you can wear in pretty much any situation, from happy hour to bed.
