The robe coats are coming! The robe coats are coming! Now that you have been sufficiently alerted, let’s go over what this means. They’re not quite a dusters, not quite robes, not quite kimonos: They’re robe coats. Oftentimes satin with delicate floral prints, bedroom-appropriate color schemes, and a belted waist, these coats take their cue from romantic robes. Other times they take a minimalist turn in solid neutrals, which seems to be the favorite way Glamhivers are wearing this trend.

Underwear turned outerwear, robe coats thrive the most in that magical but sometimes awkward area of transitioning seasons… That place where it’s warm enough to wear shorts, but cool enough for a duster coat. The closer winter gets, the practicality of a robe coat wanes, so maximize your use of these beautiful pieces of outerwear by snapping one up now.

WHAT to wear: Searching online for these specific coats yields few results. The plus side? It means this trend isn’t over-saturated yet. Get creative with your search and look for a “satin duster,” “kimono coat,” or just browse through robes until one seems suitable enough to wear over your jeans in public. We’ve even seen maxi dresses untied or unbuttoned to look like a coat.

WHO’s wearing it?: Women who were all about the slumber party growing up. In fact, if this is your coat, you probably are up on all the latest beauty masks and have at least one pair of fuzzy slides or smoking slippers that you wear… Outside.

WHERE to wear: On a midnight ride (that was a Paul Revere joke — re: our headline).

HOW to wear: Distance yourself from the full-on plopped out of bed look and wear jeans underneath. The roughness of denim is a great contrast to a satin robe coat. Throw on a tank top, high rise denim, and minimalist heels and you’re done. Think of robe coats as the fall 2016 version of Carrie Bradshaw’s infamous midnight NYE fur coat run through the city. Oh this old thing? I just threw it on.
