Bathrobes Are the New Blazers
Seven we’d like to lounge in all day.

Slippers have replaced shoes; pajamas have replaced trousers. Loungewear is officially trending. If you’re finally ready to give up sweatpants while working from home (they had a good run), it’s time to treat yourself to a little luxury—why not pick up a new robe? Fall is just around the corner and we could all use some extra coziness.
Everyone, from June Diane Raphael to Alisha Ramos, has a favorite. It’s an oddly personal decision: Do you want to swaddle yourself in a terrycloth cloud? Or do you prefer to swan around in a silky number like a glamorous person of leisure? Whatever your vibe, we have the right one for you.
If You Just Want to Wear Your Duvet
Tekla’s oversize option is peak comfort: It’s woven from thick cotton fibers, so putting this bathrobe on is like being wrapped in your bedding. It’s no wonder that the lilac and brown version is our Spring cover star Alexa Chung’s favorite.
If Your Skin-Care Routine Only Has One Step
Take an equally no-fuss approach to your loungewear with Parachute’s classic design. Made from long-lasting, 100-percent Turkish cotton, you’ll enjoy slipping into it post-shower for years to come.
If You Need a Mental Vacation
This seersucker option will make you feel like you’re staying at a five-star hotel; all that’s missing is a tiny espresso to kick your day off on a luxurious note. Monogram it to make it even more special.
If You Want to Pretend Your Bathroom Is a Spa
It doesn’t get more zen than a plush pastel bathrobe. After you turn your tub into a soothing escape, waft about your apartment wearing this and your face mask of choice. It doubles as a towel, too.
If Your Permanent Aesthetic Is Call Me by Your Name Inspired
Serena & Lily’s aptly named Positano robe will help transport you to an Italian villa, no matter your zip code—or the season. The eco-friendly linen is ideal for both crisp autumn mornings on your terrace—err, fire escape—and cool evenings with the windows open, sipping Aperol Spritzes. Pro tip: Give it a wash before wearing to soften the fabric.
If You’d Like to Turn Your Home Into a Rainbow-Fueled Dream
A bright blue, billowy, waffle knit from Hay is a good start. (If your palette of choice features mostly pastels, we love the lemon and blush options, too.) Hung up outside a closet or door, it acts as woven—and wearable—art.
If You Want to Feel Dressed Up
Cashmere is the height of elegance, and this rosy color is guaranteed to brighten the gloomiest of winter days. With the addition of a shawl collar, it almost looks like a sweater—meaning that, yes, you can absolutely wear it to more informal Zoom meetings.
