The more the concepts of "home" and "street" clothes are blurred, the more irreplaceable robes seem to be as everyday clothes. Today you can wear them both as a dress and as a coat. We have already talked about how dressing gowns become common on the streets of big cities. Now let's move on to practice and choose the best options for dresses and robe coats that you can wear right now.
The Ukrainian brand Sleeper, like the British Olivia von Halle, makes luxurious pajamas, combinations and dressing gowns, which are also designed for going out, and not just for spending time at home. Clothes are made of silk and cotton, and you can order them through the official website of the brand. We have chosen a dressing gown with contrasting piping, which is as close to home as possible, but on the brand's website you can find other options in case you want a dressing gown that resembles a laconic coat as much as possible. You can wear these with anything, for example, with wide silk trousers. By the way, you can also buy a male version there - you can't imagine a better gift.

A wraparound dress with short sleeves is a great option for the summer. And cast aside the prejudices that floor-length dresses are closed to a short girl's wardrobe. A monochromatic dress of this length, on the other hand, visually stretches the silhouette. In this case, it is worthwhile to recoup on accessories, but it is better to make one bright accent.
A suit strip has long adorned a wide variety of things today - from shorts and skirts to dresses and coats. In the summer version, it also has a right to exist. For example, in a light summer coat-dressing gown: this will balance an overly delicate image and add the necessary severity. The length of the robe allows you to combine it with both classic trousers and mini skirts. In the case of midi, you should be careful not to choose lush options, so as not to add extra volume to the image.

High cuts along the leg are especially honored this season. In the most favorable light, such a solution looks in the lingerie style (you can see the options at Balenciaga and Givenchy). Light fabric scattering in different directions will add tenderness to any look. Feel free to wear a summer & Other Stories robe with tight skirts of different lengths, cropped trousers and jeans.
An option in which extremes work: either go into linen style with a head and combine with lace and light fabrics, or collect a minimalist image in which a black silk robe will complement monochromatic restrained things. In the wardrobe, such a thing will serve as an excellent replacement for the usual blazer or jacket: you can create a great look even with jeans, while wearing slippers or muffled loafers. The price of Ricardo Tisci's creation is high, but the robe will also last a long time and is quite capable of being inherited by grandchildren.

Denim and suit stripes are already intriguing combinations. Embodied in a dressing gown, it will remain relevant both in spring and summer, and in autumn. The vertical strip, as usual, visually slims, and the material will not allow the dress to wrinkle, will keep its shape and go well with comfortable sneakers.
Rich, dark shades in clothes are an easy way to add solemnity to your outfit. In combination with the sheen of viscose (unlike the same silk, it wrinkles less) and a print in the form of small polka dots, this robe looks like a luxurious outfit. You can combine it with loafers and mules - if you are not afraid of an exaggerated home look. In summer conditions, wedge espadrilles, sneakers, sneakers or a classic heel are perfect.
A flying fabric kimono robe is a great addition to a casual outfit with jeans. The best pair for him will be a plain T-shirt or T-shirt. With regard to skirts, you should be careful - with the length of the midi, you run the risk of distorting the proportions (a thin belt at the waist can help with this). Go for a laconic mini or trousers - both the cropped and the elongated version will look perfect.
A transparent bathrobe is a versatile option for both daytime and evening walks. In the summer, such an item in the wardrobe will play into the hands: it is not hard, not cold and concisely complements the image, whether you are wearing a dress, jeans or a skirt. A loose pattern makes it possible to combine a robe with a varied color palette, and a kimono sleeve adds shape - even a regular white T-shirt with it will look more sophisticated.
A light robe with a floral print is best combined with monochromatic things - it itself plays the role of the main accent in the image, so it does not need help. Here you should no longer be afraid of loafers without a backdrop or ballet flats, because the robe, fluttering in the wind, will open your legs, on which there will be shorts / trousers / jeans / skirt, which, on a subconscious level, will convince others that you are all dressed up before going out. have not forgotten.
