Academic robes.

A robe is a loose-fitting outer garment. A robe is distinguished from a cape or cloak by the fact that it usually has sleeves. The English word robe is borrowed from French. There are various types of robes, including:

  • A gown worn as part of the academic regalia of faculty or students, especially for ceremonial occasions, such as a convocations, congregations or graduations.
  • A gown worn as part of the attire of a judge or barrister.
  • A wide variety of long, flowing religious dress including pulpit robes and the robes worn by various types of monks.
  • A gown worn as part of the official dress of a peer or royalty.
  • Any of several women's fashions, as robe d'anglaise (18th century), "robe de style" (1920s).
  • A gown worn in fantasy literature and role-playing games by wizards and other magical characters.
  • An informal "house robe" worn chiefly in the home by women in the southeastern United States.
  • An absorbent "bath robe" worn mostly after washing or swimming.
    • One such example is a bathrobe, a garment made of terrycloth or another towel like material and is typically worn at home after a bath or other activities where the wearer is nude to keep warm and/or preserve modesty in times of no immediate need to fully dress. (Also called a house coat.)
  • (Informal usage) Any long flowing garment; for example, a cassock is sometimes called a robe, despite the fact that the cassock is close-fitting.
