The World's Most Comfortable Dress Is Now a Major Trend

Hilary George-Parkin

Some of Rihanna's going-out outfits aren't always try-this-at-home kind of fare, but after she swapped her sensational Comme des Garçons Met Gala look for her after-party ensemble—a kitschy-cool combo of a silk blouse-cum-minidress with ostrich feathers sprouting from the cuffs accessorized with diamanté sunglasses, two layers of snakeskin belts, and tufted satin sandals—we couldn't help but wonder if we could pull that off.

Well, maybe not the full outfit (our budgets also look a little different from Ri's) but at least the spirit of it, with a fancy-yet-comfy dress that's just a few steps away from wearing pajamas to a party.

And it turns out, the pop star isn't the only one we can look to for inspiration on this front: boudoir-inspired robe dresses are having a moment with celebs this spring, with Candice Huffine choosing a mini from Attico, the luxe line from street-style stars Gilda Ambrosio and Giorgia Tordini, for Vogue's pre-Met party, and Kiernan Shipka opting for a hooded velvet version for Dior's Cruise show in Los Angeles.

Even better? The pieces are more practical than they may seem at first glance since most of them can be worn as a dress or left undone over a tank and jeans as a lightweight jacket. So, who wants to invite us to a cocktail party? We know what we'll be wearing.
