Whether you're having your entire family over for holiday dinner or just using the extra vacation days to catch up on Netflix, there's one thread that combines everyone during the holiday season: the need to be warm and comfy. And though there's plenty of great cotton and silk loungewear out there, there's still nothing that beats a luxurious, soft cashmere robe when it comes to wrapping up and relaxing at home.
With more brands than ever focused on high-quality loungewear, the art of the bath robe has made a comeback — and cashmere is at the center of the revival. It's now in vogue to be as relaxed as you are stylish, with brands like The Elder Statesman releasing eye-catching cashmere striped robes that will make you look like you stepped off the runway and onto your sofa. At $1,765, the robe is without a doubt still a part of the upscale lifestyle brand's refined-yet-relaxed take on cashmere.
London-based Chinti and Parker's careful consideration of cashmere's versatility has also yielded effortlessly chic bath robes. At its core, the brand is experimental in its usage of classic cashmere with playful colors, creating robes like the Love Heart Dressing Gown. At $575, the cashmere and wool blend robe has a classic preppy contrast trim, interrupted by a bold red heart graphic. Spirited shapes come back into play with Chinti and Parker's Navy Star Cashmere Dressing Gown; the robe is bathed in graphic stars, and the $950 price reflecting its 100 percent cashmere makeup. It makes sense that these fun robes come from the same brand that teamed up with Hello Kitty to create a capsule collection.
For a more minimalistic robe that still carries quite a story, try browsing Naadam's cashmere robes. The brand's sustainable cashmere comes from Zalaa Jinst goats that live in Mongolia's Gobi Desert, and is retrieved by the local herders through a 2,000-year-old hand-combing process that doesn't stress the goat. This dedication to the craft results in seriously stunning robes at fair prices to boot. Naadam's signature Khimori robe retails at $175 and is made from a blend of Mongolian cashmere and ethically sourced silk, for a breezy robe that's still extremely cozy. For a personal touch, add a monogrammed detail for an extra $10 — a thoughtful gift for a special someone as the holidays approach (or for yourself).
If you have your heart set on the classic white cashmere robe, Restoration Hardware's version is an easy choice. Originally $389 and now on sale for $329, the Cashmere Long Robe has the traditional lines and shape, created from 12-gauge, two-ply cashmere for extra softness. The robe also comes in a variety of colors, if you want to shake up your loungewear with a bold scarlet or washed indigo.
