No longer are they being confined to the comfort of your own home, coats in the style of a robe (robe coats) are a fall/winter classic. They made a comeback a couple years ago and were seen on the runways of Altuzarra, Richard Chai, Louis Vuitton, and Celine during 2014 F/W fashion week. Robe coats come in a variety of colors, fabrics, and prints; you’re bound to come across one of these awesome finds that’ll be just right for you! It’s reminiscent of the gown you wrap yourself in when you get out of the shower or out of the bed in the morning, but it’s certainly much more functional… and elegant. It’s timeless and tasteful silhouette makes for a stylish piece that you can pair with literally anything from sneakers for a casual street style look to pumps for a night out on the town.
Couple a pencil skirt and pointed-toe pumps with your robe coat pulled tightly over it for a formal approach. Adversely, pair your robe coat with a turtle neck, trousers, and booties for a quick lunch date or to run errands in style and flair. As stated before, you can even pair it with an oversized sweater, slim fit jeans, and sneakers for a super mod and edgy look.
Robe coats are also very flattering to any and every body shape with its belt pulling in the coat, giving every wearer a sensationally cinched waist.
