When it comes to clothes with the ability to make you feel like a total goddess, robes reign supreme. Slipping on a gorgeous robe can instantly transform your entire mood; even the name evokes opulence — and literal royalty. It makes sense, then, to think of robes as outerwear just as much as loungewear, especially since many feature rich textures, intricate detailing, and colorful prints that’ll make even the simplest outfit stand out. But if you're having a hard time imagining robes you can wear in public, let alone finding them, you’re in luck. Ahead, you’ll find 21 chic robes you can wear anywhereand better yet, they can all be bought on Amazon for $50 or less.

While you can technically wear any robe in public, there’s no denying that some will probably work better than others. If you’re planning to wear a robe as a dress, you’ll probably want something that can be fastened securely and isn't too sheer. On the other hand, if you’re wearing a robe as a layering piece or swim cover-up, sheer and lace robes can look totally gorgeous.
