Searches for pyjama sets for women always see a spike around this time of year, which should come as no surprise to anyone. The weather is cold, Christmas party hangovers are crippling and the sofa is the only place we want to be.
So, as we hunker down for a fortnights’ worth of ~all~ the cosy; festive vibes, there’s only one sartorial choice that will cut the mustard.
Of course, a desire for elevated nightwear will remain strong once Christmas has passed. Investing in a pair of women’s pyjamas is self-care at its finest, instilling calm into our bodies the moment we put them on and going hand-in-hand with today’s wellness culture. Add that to the fact that most of work from home for at least half the week, and a need for a stylish pyjama set becomes very real.
Luckily, recent years have seen a boom in stylish nightwear to enable our pyjama choices to be just as indicative of our personal styles as our normal clothes would be. In fact, nightwear is now so chic that the postman nor your colleagues will be able to tell that you haven’t yet changed out of your pyjama top.
Influencer-adored Sleeper leads the way in nightwear-turned-partywear with their feather-adorned silk pyjama sets, while Desmond & Dempsey’s luxury pyjamas are splashed in prints inspired by the founder’s favourite spots. Case in point: the Tithonia pyjamas, covered in hand-painted and exaggerated floral motifs.
On the high street, our favourite summer dresses brand Nobody’s Child makes the case for nightwear that’ll rival your daywear, crafted from cooling organic cotton and other smart fabrics.
Elsewhere, brands like The White Company, Marks & Spencer and Anthropologie are dropping night dresses, cami sets, short pyjama sets with adorable sleep shorts and wide leg bottoms that genuinely look too good to wear to bed. It’s official: you can do far better than a thread-bare pair of black leggings or ten-year-old Primark nightie. Only the best pyjamas for women will do.
