The weather is getting ever more brisk, making for some chilly mornings. I haven’t owned a bathrobe since I was a kid, but something about the approaching winter is making me want a pretty little robe to have my coffee in on those cool mornings. The question is, do I invest in a short, cute, pretty robe, or something big and cozy? Here are a few options:

Plum Pretty Sugar Kimono-Style Robe

Anthropologie Uster Sherpa Robe

Anthropologie Sweet Merriment Robe

Lands’ End Fleece Robe

Ralph Lauren Plaid Robe

Eberjey Colette Robe

Do you wear a robe? What kind of style do you prefer? Any favorite place I should look?

    Something new since last we spoke is that I bought a sewing machine, and the first item on my “to make” list (once I get the basics down) is a big, flowy kimono like the one in the first picture!

    I have a fleece one from LL Bean – just like that one you featured from Lands End. It is not sexy or inviting or any of that, but it IS warm. My apartment gets super drafty in the winter and that thing is my go-to watching tv or reading late at night…it’s like you’re wearing a big fleece blanket. Like I said, don’t recommend it for the “look” necessarily – but warmth and comfort? Yes, indeed.

    I have two robes! I have a shorter cute one and a long flannel one. I used to have a white terry cloth one, too. Love them!

    I have a terrycloth robe from Target that I use a lot, especially during the winter. In the hotter months, sans AC, I like to wait as long as possible to get dressed in the mornings. But that’s a little chillier in the winter, so the robe works nicely. However, I’ve been wanting a lighter weight, cuter version, and I’m DYING for that one from Anthro!

    ROBETASTIC! I have a fluffy knee-length one I wear for before and after showering whilst untangling hair and such, and a mid-calf-length one that is sort of frumpy and plain and just made of soft flannelesque material for nippy mornings. As someone said above, it’s not terribly sassy, but it’s cozy and soft and makes sipping coffee while waiting for the heat to kick on quite inviting. I suggest trying some on and making sure the sleeves aren’t uber-long, because there’s nothing worse than your sleeves dragging all over the place. For practicality and warmth, I recommend getting a longer one so that your bum and thighs are securely covered and snuggly.

    When Snuggies came out, I was like, wait…. why don’t people just put on their robes backwards instead of shelling out for these things?

    I have three robes. One for the summer, that is short sleeved and very lighweight; one pretty one that has long sleeves, but is still pretty lightweight; and finally my very favorite, soft, warm and snuggly one. Nothing makes me more comfortable!

    Apparently, the Gallagher household is way behind on robes.
