As trends go, the pyjama inspired look will never get tired. Once you get over the fear of people thinking you’ve forgotten to get dressed it’s not hard to incorporate boudoir chic into your everyday look.
When I first saw people wearing their pyjamas in public I wasn’t sure if this was a look I could pull off but I’ve come to realise you don’t have to wear it head to toe to nail the trend. All you need is an individual piece like a silky cami, a pyjama shirt or bedroom inspired trousers paired with some good quality basics from your wardrobe.
This look is more than your average lounge wear and it’s all down to the details. Luxe fabrics, stripes, florals, lace trims and piped edging make the pyjama trend wearable and versatile for any time of day. I mean let’s be honest, who isn’t wowed by a sleek camisole dress and satin robe or a floral pyjama suit and heels.
Ok, for some the Hugh Hefner look should be avoided but I can’t help thinking his cravat and robe combo would look amazing with an oversized clutch and metallic heels! Who’s with me?
What I’m Wearing
I’m wearing the trend in the easiest way possible, with a pyjama style shirt over boyfriend jeans and heels. Of course it’s the grey piped edging that gives an otherwise basic shirt those lush bedroom feels. I left the top untucked and loose to balance the casual roughness of the boyfriend jeans. The block heel suede pumps keeps things nicely elevated.
Price wise this top is £34, aka a no-brainer. Oh and a note about the colour – this is more off-white than bright white. Just so you know.
Wait, there’s more… I also picked up a pyjama style jacket from Topshop. It’s not pictured here but check out how I styled it on a trip to London here. If you like longer length blazers you’re going to love this one!
How to Wear
As with most things in life it’s all about balance, here are my tips on how to wear the trend:
- Go luxe with silk or satin pyjama pieces, steer clear of flannel nighties and cotton waffle robes, now’s not the time.
- Keep accessories light. Go for a single piece of chunky jewellery and wear heels or sandals, avoid slippers at all cost.
- If you can’t commit to wearing a full pyjama set, go for separates and mix individual pieces with wardrobe favourites like boyfriend jeans or a pleated skirt.
- Go for a loose and oversized silhouette, drape a coat over your shoulders for added drama.
- Keep the look grown-up and glam – if in doubt add 70’s style heels, a clutch bag and a strong red lip.
If you fancy wearing the trend to the office just add a sharp blazer and heeled pumps to a coordinating pyjama set. For a night-time look ditch the teddy for a plunging shirt or cami neckline and layered necklaces. Perfect your off duty pyjama dressing with a nightie, biker jacket and chunky boots or sneakers.
Top tip! You don’t have to buy new to wear the trend. If you have a black lace bralet in your closet pop it under a white shirt for a peekaboo look. Voila!
