A robe might seem like one of those universal items everyone gives as a gift but no one actually uses — that is, until you slip one on for yourself and wonder how you ever functioned without one. Soft robes don’t just scream “comfort,” they also offer people a way to lounge around their house without having to get dressed.
Instead of walking around in your underwear when UPS unexpectedly shows up at your doorstep or sitting in your towel long after you’ve finished showering, a bathrobe is a warm alternative for those times when you just aren’t ready to put real clothes on. These days, there’s also nothing schlumpy about them: the best soft robes come in luxuriously plush fabrics with stylish details such as quilting and color-blocking you won’t be embarrassed to be caught in.
So, whether you want to lounge around watching Netflix on a lazy Sunday with your kids or cover up while you get ready in the morning before you get fully dressed, you can count on a soft robe to help you do it in style and comfort. Here are some of our favorites to consider adding to your own wardrobe.
