Few things are more effortlessly glamorous than a silk robe. Delicate and gentle on the skin, the boudoir staple is a sophisticated form of self-love that offers comfort and elegance. No longer exclusively reserved for bedtime and intimate rendezvous, silk robes have seeped into daywear trends in recent seasons, which I for one couldn't be more excited about. Here, my 12 favorite picks for satin and silk robes to invest in ahead of spring, whether you're looking for a cover-up for the bedroom or brunch.

A Fruity Kimono

Decorated with vibrant illustrations of fruit, this silky kimono from the recently launched (and wonderfully named) British brand Fruity Booty Underwear deserves to be displayed as art on your body rather than hidden in your closet. The brand is ethically made in Europe and was founded by two women who wanted more choice for undergarments, believing that nightwear should always feel special. This piece absolutely does.
