Five of the best winter dressing gowns
The mornings are most definitely getting colder, but while many of us have separate coats for different seasons we wear the same dressing gown all year round. This year, why not treat yourself to a nice warm bathrobe to keep those winter chills at bay...
1. John Lewis Luxury Towelling White Robe
Just like the little black dress, the fluffy white dressing gown is something of a classic – and you can always trust John Lewis to do the classics well.
This luxury towelling robe is made from 90 per cent super-soft cotton and is generously sized, with two big pockets, a belt tie and a snug collar. It's not pure cotton because there's a little bit of polyester used to lock the cotton in place, preventing shedding.
It has glowing reviews on the JL website, with one owner writing simply: "I've looked for ages for a decent dressing gown and really love this one. Very warm and comfortable."

2. Land's End 11-Ounce Turkish Terry Calf-Length Robe
Another heavyweight cotton option, but this time for men, this garment is made from 100 per cent authentic Turkish terry cloth cotton for a luxury feel and great absorbency.
It comes in a range of muted tones, including blue, grey, dark red and dark green – and is described as having "no gap" fitting, so there's no need to get the next size up. Coming down to calf-height and with a big collar, it's ready to take on the coldest winter morning.

Want something with a bit more character? The whimsical design on this neatly styled dressing gown is perfect for dog lovers.
It's made from polyester throughout, but has a high-quality feel – with a smooth outer fabric, a cosy fleece lining and a generous collar and hood to keep out the chills on colder mornings.

If you want warmth and comfort on a budget, this economical option from Amazon could pass for something much more expensive.
