How to rock the pyjama trend

This effortless, chic trend can be intimidating, but we've rounded up a few tips and tricks on rocking it on any occasion

Day-time pyjamas have been on the fashion radar for quite some time now, but we’re seeing more ladies rock this daring look this year.

The key to nailing this look is simplicity. If your set is printed, then go for minimal accessories. Scrappy heels are usually the best option because they’re classy and don’t have too much detail. Generally, silk works best with this look, as it gives that luxurious feel, but cotton also works – even though it’s a bit trickier to pull off.

There are three important rules you need to know to make the most of this look:

  • Get yourself a pair of luxurious silk (or cotton) pyjamas. or buy a silk set that looks like pyjamas.
  • Pair the pieces with more structured items such as jeans, or a fitted blazer or tailored pants if you aren’t comfortable wearing the set as is.
  • Keep your look tidy, polished and sophisticated. The aim is to turn heads – in a good way.
