*Collaborative post.

 Spa robes used to be worn solely in spas during the course of a spa treatment to help make customers feel more comfortable and relaxed. But time after time, such a norm has changed. Nowadays, spa robes can already be seen in households for their potential to transform bathrooms and bedrooms into a haven of rest and relaxation.

As much as more people are getting hooked on wearing spa robes at home for that instant ultimate luxury and therapeutic pampering experience, as comfy as they are, spa robes also come at a hefty price. To get a quality and cozy spa robe, you have to pay $25 at the least. That said, it pays to know how to make a wise purchase to make sure you get the best value of your spa robes budget.

 

Spa Robes Shopping Tips

So, heads up, beginners! When shopping for your first spa robe, you may want to heed the tips below:

 

  1. Your spa robe has to fit well.

A spa robe’s price does not absolutely mirror its quality. There are also other important factors that can help enhance your robe spa robe experience and one of these is the spa robe’s size.

Make sure you choose the right size. Otherwise, that luxurious experience you have imagined might turn out to be a cause of great annoyance or disappointment.

 

  1. Choose the spa robe that best suits with how you intend to use it.

Spa robes, nowadays, are worn for a variety of purposes. Besides being a spa and massage treatment outfit, others wear it as plain bathrobe before and after taking a bath or as a comfortable garment at home especially in the bedroom. Unfortunately, you cannot simply purchase one spa robe and expect it to go well on all occasions.

If it’s to serve as a plain bathrobe, you should prioritize on getting a robe with a more absorbent material. Otherwise, opt for a more breathable robe that best suits your lounging hours at home. Meanwhile, if your purpose is to wear an extra layer to keep you warm during the winter season, then go for thicker spa robes. Somehow, it is always better to touch the robe in person or fit it to make sure that it can go well with how you plan it to use.

  1. Choose the kind of cotton and fabric you prefer.

The Cotton Material

Choosing the right type of cotton in shopping for your spa robe is also necessary as this can influence and affect the robe’s longevity, functionality, and maintenance.

You can either have a spa robe made of natural cotton and polyester or you can opt for the better option that is the Turkish cotton.

Turkish cotton is a kind of premium cotton from Aegean, Turkey which has longer fibers which add to the robe’s softness, absorbency, and fluffiness. Oftentimes, Turkish cotton is compared to luxury Egyptian cotton; a huge part of the market prefers Turkish more over the latter as it wins in terms of absorbency, fluffiness that improves over time, and most importantly, Turkish cotton is way more affordable.

If you are on a tight budget, however, you can still go for polyester-natural cotton combination and still feel happy about your purchase. On the upside, such a combination is considered more versatile, more durable, and is easier to wash or maintain. Unlike pure cotton, poly-cotton blends do not shrink easily and are usually free of wrinkles.

 

The Fabric Material

Two popular and most commonly used spa robe fabrics are terry cloth robes and waffle spa robes which produce different finishes.

Terry cloths are thick and soft. Oftentimes used to make towels, terry cloth is ace in terms of absorbency and comfort. If you are looking for a spa robe to wear at home while watching TV on the couch or on your bed, then you should get a terry cloth robe and enjoy that cozy and warm feel.

Waffle spa robes are pretty much as cozier, absorbent, and comfortable as terry robes but they are lighter to wear and thus, easier to wash, maintain, or dry. This is the reason why a lot of hotels and spas prefer waffle knit robes over terry robes.

In terms of look, both terry and waffle spa robes are equally aesthetically great and elegant.

  1. Watch the length.

Most of spa robes are long. Nonetheless, the robe industry is following three standard spa robe length options: short, knee length, and long. Short is until mid-thigh, knee length is inches longer but is still above the knees, and lastly, long is until the mid-calf level.

Your spa robe’s length is an important consideration too if your location experience the full range of seasons.

 

  1. Pick the design and color that best captured your heart.

Basically, you can choose from three spa robe designs if you are shopping for one: kimono robes, spa robes with hoods, and the shawl collar robes.

If you have been imagining of that minimalist and elegant look at your cozy bedroom, then go for that sleek kimono robe design that has collar-less robe drapes wrapping your body. Meanwhile, for the winter season, you can go for a much cozier robe with a hood and enjoy that extra warmth it gives. Lastly, if achieving a lavish, subtle look is your priority, then you should get the shawl collar robe that has rolled collar and folded cuffs.

In terms of color, some spa robe brands offer over 20 color choices; sometimes with extra elegant fabric prints.

 

  1. It’s fun to accessorize!

Instead of visiting a high-end spa or a luxury hotel, you can actually save money and just pick the best luxury robe that you can wear at home. And if you think it’s not enough, you can always accessorize to achieve a more luxurious look, i.e. getting that fabulous headbands or pair of slippers that match the color and design of your robe.

Now, if you do not have that styling gift, simply get the spa robe that you best prefer and have it customized or embroidered for a fee or you can just leave it as is. After all, it’s that luxurious and cozy feel you are after, right?

Kids Fashion – Pink Dress for Girls

Kids Fashion is big in our house with my 5-year-old twins. They are very into fashion, especially my daughter of course. She is super girly and loves her dresses and her skirts. And she loves them to come in pink or purple! There was a time I couldn’t get her to wear anything else. It had to be a dress or a skirt. Thankfully, that phrase has since passed. She is more open to wearing other types of clothing, but you can still easily catch her in a dress; a pink dress for girls!

I have decided to feature more of kids fashion and style on Fashion and Style Police because it has become a huge part of my life. I am forever shopping for the kiddies! I shop for them a lot more than I shop for myself. They are growing kids, so their wardrobes are forever changing, which is fun and games for them, but not for my wallet! I envy their wardrobe and I wish I had a reason to change all my clothes every year, but since I don’t, I can get the satisfaction from admiring their lovely pieces and accessories.

In this outfit post, my Duchess is wearing a pink lace dress. I got this while holidaying in the US last year. It is such a pretty pink shade and the lace material is a beauty. I love the attention to detail on this dress. It is one of her favourite dresses. She loves wearing it to occasions that need a bit of dress-up, and it works every time.

I am also loving the gorgeous gold shoes. They are her favourite pair of shoes, and I know why. They are simply so beautiful, and they suit most of her clothing great!

Working girl: how to get the “business look” right

*Collaborative post.

If you work from home, you obviously don’t need to worry too much about what you’re wearing when emailing or calling clients; even pyjamas can suffice. However, at some point, you will probably need to meet face-to-face with clients or even move into a dedicated office.

This poses style problems for women, who have it harder than men when deciding what to wear for work. After all, the rules for the ladies aren’t quite as clear-cut, but here’s some reliable advice.

Go for subtlety rather than showing off

To begin with, you might only need work-friendly attire for special occasions, such as meetings with clients or events like conferences and product launches. All the same, one good rule of thumb is that your clothing shouldn’t upstage either the event or the person you’re meeting.

To ensure you stick to this guideline with your corporate attire, stick to conservative colours such as dark grey and navy, advises The Balance Careers.

 

Don’t be too casual with the “business casual” look

You might see “business casual” being prescribed as a workplace dress code, but one problem with the term “business casual” is that different companies can perceive it differently. Therefore, whereas some firms may accept long shirts, you should forgo these for formal business dealings.

Otherwise, when meeting up with a client, you could give off the image of a woman who has rushed over from the gym – hardly the most professional impression you could project!

 

Invest in tailored, interchangeable outfits

Although you may not be able to get away with reusing pieces as often as your male cohorts could, quality still betters quantity when it comes to women’s work clothes. Hence, it’s worth investing in tailored clothing.

Quite simply, it will look better than non-tailored clothing – and as Business Insider explains, a “nicely cut and manufactured blazer can be slimming and fitted in the right places while not restricting your arms to your sides either.” You could often wear such a blazer on consecutive occasions as well.

Choose skirts and dresses carefully

You’ve already read some guidance on colour, but you need to watch out for the length, too. An overly short outfit could expose too much of your thigh when you settle into a chair.

As a general rule, any slit in your skirt ought to be small and centred in the back. It would not be appropriate for the slit to either exceed the back of your knee in height or, as would be the case with an excessively small or tight slit, impair your mobility when you walk or climb stairs.

 

What about the shoes?

When shopping for these, opt for closed-toed pumps coloured in a way that is complementary to your outfit. Those shoes should fit well, too, or else you could struggle to walk comfortably.

Just imagine the pride you would feel if your clothing choices help you to ascend the corporate ladder, perhaps to the extent that you end up walking every business day into a serviced office from BE Offices, a national provider of workplace amenities.
