When we used to picture pyjamas, we would think of button-down flannels and collared nightgowns. However, the sleepwear industry has exploded over the last few decades and pyjamas have even crossed into the territory of everyday fashion.
What’s even better is that sleepwear is no longer confined to the four walls of your bedroom. You can now rock your pyjamas during the day and still stay on-trend.
Here’s how you can master the sleepwear as daywear look.
Casual jumpsuits, like Souszy’s Nala Jumpsuit, are great for relaxed days when you just need to go and run a few errands. This comfortable one-piece can be worn with a tee underneath and paired with sandals for an easy going, daytime look.
Short silk jumpsuits, such as the Ripple Jumpsuit, are more suitable for the night-time. Combine this with a leather jacket and some heels or boots for a more edgy look.
The Night Shirt
The Night Shirt is one of the easiest sleepwear items to style because you can do so much with it. Take the Audrey Night Shirt, for example, you could pair it with flip flops, shorts, and a bikini for a day at the beach.
For a more elegant look, you could pair it with some strappy heels, a clutch and an up-do. If you aren’t down to go “pant-less”, pop on a pair of boyfriend jeans and elevate the look with heels.
There are so many versions of the silk nightie that the styling combinations are endless. If you have a casual silk dress, try combining this with sandals, a chunky cardigan and dainty earrings.
For more sophisticated nighties, like Souszy’s Dreamer Dress, pop on some heels, accessorize with some jewellery and get ready to hit the town in your PJ’s.
Kimono-style robes are super versatile because they can easily be worn indoors as sleepwear and outdoors as daywear. Robes can instantly give a relaxed feel to your outfit and add a pop of colour.
If you have a brightly coloured or patterned robe, make sure to keep the outfit below rather simple and monochromatic. You can dress this down with flats or dress it up with a wedge.
The PJ Set
If you want to flaunt a PJ set as daywear, you will have to go all out. This means taking your styling and accessories to the max (so that it doesn’t look like you just rolled out of bed).
For the shoes, stick to something elegant, such as a strappy heel or pair of loafers. Make sure to add a handbag, your favourite jewellery, and a bold lip to top it off.
PJ’s now come in all styles, fabrics, and cuts. From silk to cotton, sexy to comfortable, and nighties to jumpsuits, it’s easy to find sleepwear that fits your personality. Make sure to invest in high-quality pieces that will last you a lifetime and have fun styling your sleepwear as daywear.
