I believe I am not the only woman who ever wished she could roll out of bed and out the door in her pyjamas. This summer I’ve finally got my wish: first glimpsed on last year’s runaways, the elevated pyjama trend is now taking the fashion world by storm, with the likes of Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian and Rihanna seen rocking the casual glam look out in the streets. Uniting the comfort of lounge-wear with the glamour of silk fabrics and timeless silhouettes, the fashion pyjama is an easy look that can take you from day to bed and out all over again. Here are my favourite tricks to roll out of bed in style:
1. POWER SUIT
The long-sleeved, full-length pyjamas is a boho chic alternative to a power suit. The trick is to choose a tailored model with a classic pattern, such as this absinthe green print inspired by leafy Victorian greenhouses – it makes it easier to pull the look off. Tuck the top into the elasticated waistband for a more casual touch.
2. MODERN WRAP DRESS
A wrap dress is the epitome of casual daywear. A coloured silk robe with contrasting details on the sleeves and lapels is a stylish alternative for a casual day of shopping and errands. This model features a darker leaf pattern that stands out against the lilac, merging femininity with edginess. Leave it unbuttoned, tie the belt on the side and head out the door.
3. A SPLASH OF COLOUR
A short, silk pyjama set is the perfect fashion statement on a hot summer day. It helps keep your cool, too! Choose a neutral coloured fabric with a classic geometric pattern accentuated with colourful green accents – it has summer written all over it. If you want to go the extra mile, accessorize with jewellery in matching colour tones.
4. WILD SPIRIT
For a more exotic safari vibe, choose an animal print with contrasting pink accents. The pink ribbon on the shorts adds a touch of femininity that softens your inner roar. You’ll stand out from the crowd but still come across as approachable. While you’re at it, why not play with mismatched shoes, too?
5. WHITE LEOPARD
The perfect look for daring fashionistas, this feminine black and white hue puts a modern twist on a classic leopard print. The tailored pants hit just above the ankle, making it the perfect match for a towering pair of stilettos. Keep the makeup toned down – let the pj do all the talking!
