I don’t know about you, but my summer wardrobe has never looked so uninspired. Since I’ve been spending most of my time at home, it consists of a steady rotation of simple essentials like pajamas, activewear, loungewear sets, and the occasional swimsuit. In fact, the only thing that encourages me to change into a sundress or billowy blouse is a video conference for work. So, yeah, sadly my wardrobe has been just as affected as my social life.
But that’s not to say I don’t spend time scanning my favorite online shops and scrolling through social media, oohing and aahing over the latest trends worn by fashion influencers. Scarf tops, crochet dresses, statement earrings, colorful heels—a girl can dream of the tropical vacation during which she would wear these. And to my surprise, in doing so, I stumbled upon a comfy-chic look I can get on board with: summer robes worn as dresses.
No, I’m not talking about bulky bathrobes, but rather lightweight wraps made from luxurious silk or crisp cotton poplin. With seasonal prints like tropical palms, colorful florals, and paisley designs, these versatile robes can double as dresses, whether you are going from couch to Zoom call or lounge chair to pool. Toss one over your sweats during the workday or wear one over your swimsuit on the weekend. I’ve even tied one up over bike shorts and gone to the grocery store!
Look, it may be a laisse-faire approach to getting dressed, but trust me, no one will ever know. Keep scrolling to see what I mean, as I’ve rounded up some super-chic summer robes that double as dresses below.
