The Softest, Coziest Robes to Buy This Winter

If your penny-pinching landlord hasn’t turned on your apartment’s heat, or if you live with someone whose thermostat preferences are incompatible with your own, then it’s time to buy a robe. A robe also makes a great gift — especially for the people on your list who are impossible to shop for. Below, we’ve gathered nine wearable, giftable robes ranging from cozy housecoats to kimonos so chic you’ll want to wear them over your everyday clothes. Scroll down for the best robes for every person on your holiday gift list, including yourself.

The Safe Bet

Old Shanghai Long Robe
$28 at Amazon

With over 800 five-star reviews and an overall 4.4 rating, it’s one of the top contenders on Amazon. Particular points of praise: the expensive-looking floral design and sumptuous weighty feel, which also means you can use it as a fancy layer to dress up a simple pair of jeans.

The Sale Steal

Pima Cotton Jersey Robe
Sale Price: $39 (60 percent off) at Saks Fifth Avenue

In the wake of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday discount blitz, get a generous discount on this softer-than-soft stretchy pima cotton robe. Other colorways have sold out in most sizes, but there are still plenty left in white.
Original price: $99

The Internet’s Favorite Robe

Classic Bathrobe
$99 at Parachute

You’ll see nothing but praise for Parachute’s velvety bathrobe. It seems to be a favorite of editors everywhere and apparently racked up a 2,000-person wait-list upon launch.

For the Jetsetter

100% Cotton Waffle Hotel Robe
$51 at Amazon

Make every night feel like a luxurious stay at a five-star resort. Quality waffle robes tend to be on the costly side, making this version a great deal.

For the Person Who Loves to Match

J.Crew Blackwatch Flannel Short Robe
$89 at Nordstrom

If you’re gifting someone who insists on matching their pajamas to their robe, you can buy the coordinating two-piece PJs.

For the Shower Goth

DKNY Elevated Leisure Velour Robe
$85 at Net-a-Porter

Here’s the robe equivalent of an LBD. Aptly named the “Elevated Leisure” robe, this lush black velour topper won’t clash with any crazily patterned festive pajamas. And the best part? It has a hood for wet hair.

The Silky Wonder

Sumi Short Silk Kimono Robe
$120 at Amazon

If you’ve graduated from Old Shanghai’s floral robe, this one is an upgrade in 100-percent silk.

For the Big Spender

Missoni Home Cotton-Terry Robe
$390 at Net-a-Porter

Splurge on this for the friend who has everything — or for your own high-end lounging. It’s in Missoni’s signature zig-zag print so it’ll never go out of style.
