You've seen bathleisure (a combination of "bath" and "athleisure") all over Instagram, beginning with the South Korean singer CL wearing a bathrobe gown to the CFDA awards earlier in November (gasp). Soon after, Rita Ora walked the MTV Europe Music Awards red carpet in nothing more than a terry cloth robe, hair towel, and a few lavish accessories, making it A-okay for you to strut around in your favorite housecoat. But it wasn't until Rihanna showed up on the cover of Vogue Paris, dressed to the nines with an Emilio Pucci towel on her head (yes, a towel!), that we began to rethink our bathleisure reservations. If Rihanna is doing it, obviously it's fashion, right? We already sit around our apartments in a robe and towel post-shower, and now it's in style. Just slap on a few standout accessories and make sure to snap a pic for all your followers.
Velvet has been super hot over the winter, and it's not stopping there. Enter: velvet swimsuits for your spring and summer pool days. Now, this isn't the silk or cotton velvet you're familiar with; it's a nylon and lycra stretch velvet that can move with you and quickly dries after getting wet. Have we captured your curiosity? Whether you're ready to dive in head first, or want to dip your toes into this luxurious trend, we've scoured the web to bring you the velvet swimsuits at every price point.
