Kim Kardashian is clearly working hard to make robes an acceptable fashion staple outside the bathroom. First there was the Prada robe she modeled (full frontal, mind you) in the pages of Love magazine. And next, there was the embellished Jean Paul Gaultier version she wore to last night's Grammy Awards.

So, although we're not sure why the reality star is so into loungewear as eveningwear right now, we're willing to give her the benefit of the doubt and see which robes out there could work a little overtime for us. No promises, but we think these 12 options might just have a stylish shelf life well beyond bath time. Source: Getty
