When it comes to both getting-ready photos and bridesmaid gifts, it's no secret that we love a good set of robes (especially in mismatched floral prints). But truthfully, there are so many adorable options out there—like rompers, flannels and hoodies—that we just had to round up our favorites. So whether you want something customizable and cheeky or floral and fashionable, below we have plenty of pieces your girls will wear again and again—outside the bedroom, in some cases.
