The thought of terry cloth clothes might instantly induce thoughts of Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian posing for paparazzi in coordinating Juicy Couture looks with metallic Louis Vuitton bags and Motorola Razr flip phones in hand. But the cozy soft fabric has evolved into an elevated and—dare I say it—sophisticated summertime essential.
In fact, several luxury brands have given the towel-esque fabric a polished makeover. If you’re keeping up with the house of Bottega Veneta, I’m sure you’ve seen its popular Pouch clutches covered in the fuzzy fabric. There’s actually quite a long list of terry cloth-covered finds under the brand’s umbrella, from sandals to dresses to bralettes, which Rihanna happens to be a fan of. Labels like Loewe, Prada, and Jacquemus also have a collection of ready-to-shop elevated designs created with the soft, plush fabric.
And the trendy water-absorbing material shows no signs of going anywhere anytime soon. For its 2023 spring presentation, Marine Serre highlighted several terry cloth elements throughout the collection—think terry jumpsuits, visors, and water-bottle holders.
While we’ll have to wait until next year to get those exact styles, there are plenty of terry cloth clothes available to shop below.
