Dressing Gowns Leave The House. Yes, Really
No, you did not misread that. Robes have left the confines of the home and stepped out onto the streets. But wait! It’s not as absurd as it sounds…
Prepare for robe-gate, as just about every street styler has now rocked a dressing gown out of doors. We’re not talking about that fluffy fuchsia number you got last Christmas. Oh no – this is all about streamlined maxi gowns. Worn open over everything from jeans and heels to short skirts and flats, these robes work with any outfit.
All-over prints help to steer them out of boudoir territory and into the sort of place where cool girls hang. And the high street has loads! So why not turn that gown upside down? (Sorry.) Don’t feel gown (sorry again) because you’ve just found the world’s comfiest outfit saviour. And it also lends itself very happily to puns.
★Our Senior Fashion News Writer Maxine Eggenberger tried out the trend ‘I wasn’t convinced at first and it’s definitely not something I’d usually wear but I have to say I’m a convert. Thrown over a simple outfit with killer heels, this embellished robe made me feel very chic as I swept through the streets!’
