There's a good chance you've been wearing your bathrobe far more often than usual over the past year. We can't blame you — a cozy, plush robe will often make you feel as if you're staying in a luxury hotel suite, even when you're lounging at home. But if your favorite robe is a bit too heavy for the summer, now might be the time to add a lighter-weight option to your loungewear collection. From terrycloth to jersey, soft and breathable materials will keep you comfortable all season long.
