What are the best looking robes for a bound archer?

I am using bound bow and daggers with alteration and the mage armor perks and I need to know what the best robes would be for a "arcane ranger"

Dawnguard armor.

Especially if you go anywhere where it is cold and/or snowy.

Tavern Clothes. Only if you are female.

I like using Master Guild armor for my archer. I only use robes for when I'm at the College. As soon as I leave to go adventure I change into a light armor.
Are you classified as human? Negative, I am a meat popsicle.

Bah, I hate the Arch Mages robes with the silly hood and frilly bits..

Know what looks good? Glass Armour + the cream coloured Mage hood

I also like the green mage robes they sell in Radiant Raiment

Finish the civil war first and depending on your side go with: Ulfric's Clothes, Ulfric's Boots and Ulfric's Bracers, Diadem of the Savant, and the Locket of Saint Jiub (Or Amulet of Articulation if you don't have Dawnguard). Or if you go with the other side: General Tullius' Armor, Diadem of the Savant, Fine Armguards, Locket of Saint Jiub, and any boots you like.

This always seemed best to me for an Arcane Archer build.

Simple, useful (depending on which one you get), enchantable (if you get the unenchanted ones), and aesthetically pleasing.

Switch over to Archmage robes once you feel as if your Arcane Archer is at his prime.

My bound archer runs around without any armor....on his character model. Due to glitches though (werewolf folower glitch) he is wearing 10 types of armor at the same time, his head is the masque of calactus vile and a mages hood, looking pretty weird actually. LOL

Best looking? Thalmor robes, IMO. Best looking of any clothing in the game. Unfortunately, it isn't enchantable.

Psijic Robes look good as well. Of course you can't get those on console.

If any of the _ Robes of [Spell School] are unenchanted, I'd recommend those.
