Rihanna is making “Bathleisure” a thing, so grab your towel and work it

As the temperatures drop steadily and the nights grow longer, there’s nothing we want more than to cuddle up in a bathrobe with a warm mug of tea.

It would appear that the fashion world has caught on because celebrities have taken to a new fashion towel and bathrobe trend called Bathleisure that looks as cozy as it is hilarious.

Don’t even try to come at us with criticism of this new trend because if it’s good enough for Rihanna to wear on the cover of Vogue Paris, then it’s good enough for the rest of us. Though, if we’re being honest we can admit that it’s unlikely that any of us will ever look as chic as Rihanna does with a towel on her head. But, we digress.

Rihanna’s not the only one who’s been rocking the Bathleisure look lately. Rita Ora hit the red carpet at the MTV EMAs, and as much as her look made us giggle, we were jealous of how comfortable and timeless she looked. Who among us hasn’t wanted to spend the whole day in a fancy bathrobe looking like the star of a noir film?

Would you ever jump on the Bathleisure bandwagon?

Come on, how great does she look?

Rita Ora fully committed to the look in a way that has us shook over her confidence. The fact that she’s dripping in diamonds adds to the overall glamour of the look.


It’s won us over.
