"Bathleisure" Is Officially A Fashion Trend, Thanks To Rihanna and Rita Ora

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.

Bathleisure Bling

The second step to mastering bathleisure is all about accessorizing. Eye-catching accessories—statement necklaces, bold earrings, and matrix-esque sunglasses—are the key to achieving comfortable glamour. Channel Rita Ora's red carpet look with a leg-revealing robe and a statement choker dripping in crystals. We won't tell how long you actually spent prancing around your house in this fab getup.

Girly Pearls

Drop pearl earrings have been a natural pairing for street-style stars testing out the bathleisure look. We loved Man Repeller's Leandra Cohen's feminine take on the trend with several strands of pearls and can't-miss matching earrings, and, not to mention, Rihanna's statement studs featuring a giant pearl front and center. This Kate Spade pair is simple but adds some girly flair to a terry cloth hair wrap. ($30; shopbop.com)
