As much as I love getting dressed up at this time of the year, adding the Christmas sparkle and glitter and basically enjoying the run up to Christmas, it is also true to say that by December 25th, I usually feel tired enough to sleep for a hundred years. So once Christmas is well and truly over, I have a few days where I try to wind down and relax, and basically avoid getting dressed at all. There are new DVDs to be watched, cheesy Christmas movies to enjoy, and those selection boxes to devour, and non of them require anything more than a pair of PJs and my dressing gown. Which is why a new, cosy dressing gown is one of my must buys for 2017.
My favourite sort of dressing gown has to be full length. Short robes are fine for putting on when you get out of the bath, but not for a lounging day – that one needs to give you full coverage, almost providing a blanket effect. I prefer a wrap style robe, is there anything that gives you a feeling so warm and cosy than wrapping up in your dressing gown, especially when the weather outside is anything but warm? My dressing gown of choice will also be fleecy, something that is soft and cuddly (what I am wearing right now as I type this), and, because at the moment I am currently fighting what feels like the world’s worst cold, it also has to have big, deep pockets which I can stuff with tissues.
David Nieper has an amazing range of really luxurious robes that start from size XS and go right up to 4XL. These are a real touch of luxury and style that will really help you to lounge and feel relaxed once all the hustle and bustle has died down, and will then be your go to robe for 2017.
