There’s an item hanging in your wardrobe that’s feeling extremely underappreciated right now.
It’s not that sequin party skirt you’re yet to wear, the “staple” LBD, the jeans you wear everyday or even your work jacket that’s perfect for hiding evidence that you dropped your coffee on yourself just before your morning meeting.
No, rifle through your racks a bit further until you see a glimpse of a large item falling off the hanger and shoved right at the back.
Your dressing gown.
"You WHAT?" I hear you cry.
"It's DAGGY/ugly/strange/unnecessary unless you are five or five hundred years old."
To that I say, as I sit snuggled in my fleece-hug-of-a-dressing gown, RUBBISH.
The confirmed, scientific*, indisputable fact of the matter is it's actually the real MVP of your wardrobe. Here's why.
1.It's an outfit in itself.
In just three swift movements - arms in, wrap across and tie up - you're completely dressed.
2. It's an instant hug.
Wrapping yourself up in a big, thick, fluffy dressing gown is like giving yourself an instant, delicious fleece-hug. Mmmmm.
3. It's perfect for when it's cold.
AND saves you money on your heating bill. Brilliant.
4. And it's perfect for when it's hot too.
You know when you've put the air con on and it's just getting a litttle bit chilly?
