When it comes to versatile loungewear, robes are at the top of the list. A lightweight wrap can be layered over yoga pants and a t-shirt during a lazy Sunday Netflix binge. A short and sleek robe can serve as a “getting ready” go-to when you’re prepping for date night—it just feels a little more special than your favorite worn-out pajama bottoms, after all. And of course, there are thicker flannel and terry cloth robes that keep you warm and cozy when temperatures drop.
If you’re looking to upgrade your robe and toss that threadbare version you’ve had for years—or maybe just add a new favorite to your collection—we’ve got you covered.
Here, the best robes for women.
Best Overall: Parachute Classic Bathrobe
This incredibly plush robe will quickly become your go-to favorite for the morning, night, and everything in between. With a roomy fit and oversized shawl collar, it's comfortable enough to wear both out of the shower and around the house. This robe is also crafted of 100% Turkish cotton, which means that it gets softer with every wash.
Best Cashmere: White and Warren Long Cashmere Robe
If you've ever had a cashmere throw, you'll know that the material is the very definition of luxury. The super-soft fibers mean extra warmth, which makes it perfect for those frigid winter mornings when it feels impossible to get out of bed. This taupe version is also chic enough to wear in the outside world like an oversized cardigan.
Best Linen: Brooklinen Linen Robe
If your entire bed is covered in linen, then this robe is perfect for you. And like those linen sheets you love so much, the more you wash this, the softer it will get. This breezy robe from one of our favorite bedding brands is made of lightweight linen that's perfect for summer or for layering in the colder months. It's a laidback look that is just the thing for summer days.
Best For Getting Ready: Lunya The Short Robe
Getting dressed for a night on the town? It's nice to have something to slip into when you're transitioning from everyday clothing to evening wear, and this lightweight robe will fit the bill. The Pima cotton blend is soft to the touch and the figure-flattering fit is minimal, yet chic. Bonus—it has pockets!
Best Flannel: L.L. Bean Scotch Plaid Flannel Robe
There's something so cozy about a classic flannel robe. It conjures a warm, inviting, and slightly rustic vibe—think snowy days in a log cabins around a roaring fire. We love this version from heritage brand L.L. Bean—choose from four different traditional tartan plaids, each made of high-grade Portuguese flannel.
Best Patterned: MASONgrey Kimmy Robe
For a robe that is equal parts practical and pretty, this one definitely does the trick. In eight fun patterns (we love the stardust version), this longer robe has slits on either side, which makes it both sexy and comfortable to move around in. The slightly stretchy jersey fabric makes it especially conducive to lounging.
Best Waffle: Coyuchi Unisex Organic Waffle Robe
Remember that relaxing day at the spa and how you were obsessed with the robe you were wearing? Recreate the look and feel at home with this lightweight, organic cotton robe. Waffle weave fabric is considered to more absorbent than other weaves, and this one is tumbled beforehand so it's extra soft.
Best Silk: Helena Quin Silk Dusty Rose Robe
In a perfect shade of dusty rose, this silk robe will make channel some old Hollywood glamour—even if you’re just putting on your makeup for work. 100% silk robes are not easy to find in this day and age—especially American-made ones (these beauties are meticulously crafted in Los Angeles).
Best Kimono-Style: Old Shanghai KIM+ONO Women's Kimono Robe
This floor-length kimono is pretty enough to be framed, with its floral mural motif and drapey sleeves. It even feels fancy enough to play double duty and be worn over an outfit for a boho-chic look—just add skinny jeans, heels and statement earrings.
Best Velour: Sheepy Fleece Pebble Robe
This machine-washable robe is just as comforting as your favorite fleece blanket. Weighty, but not overly heavy, it feels substantial—and will be your favorite thing to slip into on your way to the coffee pot in the morning. With 13 different colors available, you'll be sure to find one that you'll love.
Best Striped: Serena & Lily Porto Linen Robe
This linen robe is best-worn seaside, in the modern-meets-classic whitewashed beach house of your dreams. The classic stripes make it feel tailored and crisp, even when it relaxes into perfect softness over time.
