pajama style

Trends come and go but one that has never quite gone away is the pyjama style. Silky, satin button through shirts and palazzo pants in an array of quirky patterns and hues grace the pages of fashion magazines year after year, and the dedicated fash-pack are ever eager to adopt the laidback look, bringing it to the masses and the highstreet.

Effortless comfort that earns you maximum style points – what’s not to love! But word to the wise, although this trend might appear ‘laidback’ it does require some sartorial tweaks and an air on confidence to pull off.

The key to nailing this trend is to make sure you don’t actually look like you just rolled out of bed. Whether you wear the pyjama style in all its co-ord glory or prefer to rock them as separates, make sure you go big and bold on your accessories. Think eye-catching earrings and statement shoes, worn alongside a polished make-up look and well kept hair to ensure you look more chic than shattered!

If you’re new to this trend why not shop some of our faves from this season below…


Floral Pyjama Shirt Topshop

This gorgeous green floral number from Topshop might look really out there, but is actaully the perfect  option for the Pyjama first timer. The slight belled sleeves and waist tie mean you can wear it as a stand alone shirt without much added extras, easing you into the trend.



Printed Pyjama Shirt Victoria Beckham

Does it get chicer that VB; we think not! This printed co-ord set in milkshake pink with its abstract pop art explosion isn’t for the faint hearted but is seriously up there in the fashion stakes. The button through worn open over a tailored shirt gives a more fluid, feminine take on a two piece suit.



Printed Pyjama Pants Mango

Go mellow with this yellow two piece from Mango. The perfect tone for spring this colour works wonders with darker skin tones and the ankle grazer cut of the pants gives an extra cool edge that makes wearing them with flats a possibility.



Pyjama Style Shirt Zara 

The darker patterning on this set from Zara means you can make it work for you at work! Add a structured tote and a towering stiletto for full on power dressing that will take you from desk to dinner no problem.



Stripe Pyjama-Style Shirt with Piping Banana Republic

The classic navy and white pinstripe combo is probably the easiest to wear when it comes to the pyjama trend. Pair with washed or dark denim, team with heels or sneakers and tuck in it or wear it out. It really is the most versatile of all the options.
