It’s a thing

Glamour (South Africa) - - Contents -

pic­ture this: you’re walk­ing down the road, in your bed­head hair, your house shoes and a loosely belted bathrobe. A dream? A night­mare? Ac­tu­ally, a slinky fash­ion re­al­ity.

Ever since Burberry sent mod­els down its au­tumn 2016 cat­walk in lay­ered ‘dress­ing coats’, style stars like Ri­hanna, Se­lena Gomez, Kim Kar­dashian West and Gigi Ha­did have adopted the bed­room-by-day look. Now satin py­ja­mas, vel­vet robes, lace-ac­cented shirts, silk ki­monos and smok­ing slip­pers are a big trend.

Bath­leisure or boudoir style, as it’s known, is all about sen­sual fab­rics and sexy sil­hou­ettes that cel­e­brate fem­i­nin­ity and ro­mance with a touch of over-the-top luxe. “And there’s no deny­ing the com­fort,” says art di­rec­tor Vic­to­ria Ravest, who tried the trend for an evening of cock­tails. “I fit­ted right in.” Out on the street, she also re­ceived her share of you-go-girl thumbs-ups.

One of the best parts of the trend? How flat­ter­ing it is! Those sexy pj pants and silky blouse are way more for­giv­ing for a lunch date than leg­gings and a tank top. Add the fact that they look much more beau­ti­ful and yes, walk­ing down the street in your robe re­ally is a fash­ion dream!
