English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. robes

    Clothing denotes the entire covering of the body, taken as a whole; clothes and garments view it as composed of separate parts. Clothes, clothing, and garments may be used of inner or outer covering; all the other words in the list (with possible rare exceptions in the case of raiment) refer to the outer garments. Array, raiment, and vesture are archaic or poetic; so, too, is habit, except in technical use to denote a lady's riding-dress. The word vestments is now rare, except in ecclesiastical use. Apparel and attire are most frequently used of somewhat complete and elegant outer clothing, tho Shakespeare speaks of "poor and mean attire." Dress may be used, specifically, for a woman's gown, and in that sense may be either rich or shabby; but in the general sense it denotes outer clothing which is meant to be elegant, complete, and appropriate to some social or public occasion; as, full dress, court dress, evening dress, etc. Dress has now largely displaced apparel and attire. Garb denotes the clothing characteristic of some class, profession, or the like; as, the garb of a priest. Costume is chiefly used for that which befits an assumed character; as, a theatrical costume; we sometimes speak of a national costume, etc.

    Synonyms:
    apparel, array, attire, clothes, clothing, costume, dress, garb, garments, habiliments, habit, raiment, uniform, vestments, vesture

    Antonyms:
    bareness, disarray, dishabille, exposure, nakedness, nudity, undress

How to use robes in a sentence?

  1. Herman Melville, Moby Dick:

    Men may seem detestable as joint stock-companies and nations; knaves, fools, and murderers there may be; men may have mean and meagre faces; but man, in the ideal, is so noble and so sparkling, such a grand and glowing creature, that over any ignominious blemish in him all his fellows should run to throw their costliest robes.

  2. Edward Everett:

    Freedom may come quickly in robes of peace, or after ages of conflict and war; but come it will, and abide it will, so long as the principles by which it was acquired are held sacred.

  3. Osmond Chan:

    Cheongsam means long robe in Cantonese and actually only became a common woman's wear after the May Fourth Movement( 1919), or the New Culture Movement, women started wearing men's long robes as a feminist statement and trend during that anti-Qing era.

  4. Brett Kavanaugh:

    I don't think we want judges commenting on the latest political controversy, because that would ultimately lead the people to doubt whether we're independent or whether we're politicians in robes, and so maintaining that strict independence of the judiciary requires me, I think, to avoid commenting on any current events.

  5. Carlos Garciavelez:

    This collection centers on the idea of a nomad going to the thermal baths in Switzerland, so, it's the idea of the explorer going to a spa ... of dressing and undressing. So we have a lot of kind of robes that are mixed in and out as outerwear.
