Keeping a silky, slinky robe around the house is one of the easiest ways to feel like you're at the spa without having to shell out the big bucks for a top-notch facial. Comfortable and a little froufrou, the best silk robes are fun swaps from the sweats and leggings that might typically make up your weekend (or work from home) wardrobe. And though they're functional, we'll admit there's an air of old-Hollywood glam to them, too. (Tell us you don't channel your inner Ava Gardner in a vintage dressing gown, and we'll tell you that you're lounging wrong.)
After a long day, cozying up in a silky wrap is the best way to self-care. In terms of dollar signs, from most to least expensive, it typically goes silk, silk blends, and then satin. Casper says silk is considered high-end and is priced accordingly because of "the skill it [takes] to work with and its incomparably smooth feel." Meanwhile, satin is easier to make as it's "not woven" like silk, which is occasionally made from synthetic materials — something that cheapens the price and lessens the softness. At the end of the day, both fabrics are lustrous and great for sleeping in.
Whichever style catches your eye — as a gift or otherwise — the 13 silk robes ahead scream luxury.
