Picture this: you’re walking down the road with your bedhead hair, your slippers and a loosely belted bathrobe. A dream? A nightmare? Actually, a silky fashion reality. Ever since Burberry sent models down its autumn 2016 catwalk in layered ‘dressing coats’, style stars like Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian West and Gigi Hadid have adopted the bedroom-by-day look. Now satin pyjamas, velvet robes, lace-accented shirts, silk kimonos and smoking slippers are a big trend.
Bathleisure, or boudoir style, as it’s known, is all about sensual fabrics and sexy silhouettes that celebrate femininity and romance with a touch of over-the-top luxe. “And there’s no denying the comfort,” says art director Victoria Ravest, who tried the trend for an evening of cocktails. “I fitted right in.” Out on the street, she also received her share of you-go-girl high-fives. One of the best parts of the look? How flattering it is! Those sexy pyjama pants and silky blouse are way more forgiving for a lunch date than leggings and a tank top. Add to that the fact that they look much more beautiful and yes, walking down the street in your robe really is a fashion dream come true!
