We’re used to seeing luxe robes—whether plush, silk or linen—in the loungewear department, but this universally flattering silhouette is officially making its way from the bedroom to the streets. Lingerie-inspired pieces from sheer blouses, fur-lined slippers and marabou feather detailing have been huge fashion trends in the past year—not to mention the now ubiquitous pajama blouse that’s given us a luxe spin on the traditional silk button down. So realistically, it was only a matter of time until the robe silhouettes fashion trend took the street style sphere by storm, too.

These days, celebrities and fashion girls alike are sporting the robe silhouettes trend—with everyone from Chrissy Teigen, to Gigi Hadid, to Rosie Huntington-Whiteley sporting silky robes with vintage-inspired jeans or heels. Of course, the advantage of rocking a robe silhouette is its shape-shifting abilities allowing you to wear it as either outwear or tie-style dress—a forward and hyper-versatile update to the classic wrap dress, if you will.

While the thought of wearing a robe outside the house may seem generally daunting, I’m happy to assure you that a few key styling tricks will keep you from looking like a 1940s starlet in an opulent dressing gown. Not only have the traditional kimono and duster-style outerwear pieces become street style staples as of late, but many designers have translated the silhouette into dresses and blouses, as well. (Consider the latter both a natural evolution and a more user-friendly way to test the trend out on the streets.) Not only is 2019’s robe silhouettes trend universally flattering, but it’s also one of the best ways to layer, regardless of the season. We’re on board—are you?
