One of my favorite parts about staying at a nice hotel is taking a warm shower and then lounging for hours in the provided bathrobe. It’s so relaxing and cozy; there’s something almost magical about that time. Why should that post-shower bliss be reserved solely for vacation? The truth is, it doesn’t have to be.

A nice robe brings that little touch of luxury to your everyday life. It’s practical, sure, but more than anything it allows for an opulent sort of comfort, even on your laziest of days. Slip on a bathrobe and away from the mundanity of an ordinary Tuesday into a moment of pure, terry-clothed decadence. Whether you want something light and breezy to keep you covered as you walk around the house or you’re hoping to cocoon yourself in a plush, cloud-like cotton, there is a perfect robe out there for you.

Onsen Hooded Waffle Robe

Growing up, pretty much all of my towels had hoods. Why did that trend stop with adulthood? I don’t know the answer, but I love that this Onsen robe is an all-grown-up version of the towels I so loved as a child. Absorbent like a sponge but a whole lot softer, this airy waffle weave soaks up water after a shower with ease. The breathable and quick-drying supima cotton fabric boasts an extra-soft, cozy feel that’s sure to keep you warm. And if you always find yourself frigid upon exiting the shower, you’ll love the hood– it’ll help your hair dry and provide some much needed warmth.

Make a statement while you go fetch the mail with one of California Cowboy’s eclectic patterned robes. El Garibaldi comes in seven funky patterns, and a neutral navy blue for the more subdued among us. Style isn’t the only selling point of this robe– it’s thoughtfully designed with smart features like a bottle pocket perfectly-fit for a beer, a secure loop to hold your sunnies, and a zippered dry pocket that’ll keep your tech safe from moisture. It’s cabana ready and sure to be the talk of the neighborhood.

Coyuchi Air Weight Organic Robe

Made from a lighter version of Coyuchi’s best-selling Air Weight Towels, this robe is soft, absorbent, and quick-drying. It’s substantial, but with less than 550 grams per square meter, ir’s still not too heavy. It’s as if your favorite towel had a belt, so you could wear it all the time. If sustainability is top of mind for you, you’ll like the stats on this piece. The robe is GOTS-, Fair Trade-, and 1% For the Planet-certified, as well as made of 100% organic cotton.

UGG Beckett Fleece Robe

UGG has a reputation for making luxuriously cozy essentials, so you just know this robe is going to be good. It’s made of a plush fleece that’s not too heavy, not too light, but just right for lounging in chilly winter weather. This is not an absorbent option, making it more of a bedtime robe than a bathtime robe. But, if you’re looking for something that’s strictly soft you can’t go wrong snuggling up in this teddy bear-like robe.
