How to do pyjama dressing like a grown-up
There is something quite decadent about pyjama dressing for daytime; think Coco Chanel on the Riviera, Bianca Jagger at Studio 54, me on a sunny day in Shoreditch wearing last year’s H&M. The fabric on this pyjama-style top is crimpelene-y, the print vintage-inspired, it’s more Miuccia-Prada-on-a-budget than elegantly rakish. But, hey.
Here’s how to do pyjama dressing without looking like you’ve lost the plot:
1. Comb your hair. I’m not one for putting on full make-up to nip to the corner shop and I don’t want to sound like Kate Chisholm but, standards, people.
2. Sometimes actual pyjamas will do. In summer, the H&M crimplene number is way too hot so I’ve been eyeing up a Liberty print alternative HERE – or this pair HERE. Wear the top with jeans or Capri pants and pointed flats and the bottoms indoors, for lounging. Toast are pretty good when it comes to print or plain cotton and I like J. Crew’s cotton vintage pyjama set (above), available HERE.
3. If you’re taking pyjama dressing to work, go for smart over slouchy and try not to fall asleep at your desk. Me & Em’s silk shirt with piping is half price in the sale, available HERE. Perfect with wide leg trousers and culottes.
And here’s some more pyjama-rama style:
