Most of us would love to spend a day in our pyjamas, but we usually see ourselves slouched in front of the TV or catching up on some house work, you don't tend to see yourself going out shopping or in a bar. Until now! The pyjama trend was all over the catwalk for this season, with Stella McCartney, Jil Sanders and Jonathan Saunders all jumping on this comfortable band wagon. Think soft slouchy tailoring in stunning bold print silks and soft pastel cottons. Lots of matching button up shirts and PJ style bottoms.
So how do you wear this bold out-there trend in the real world?
- For a feminine and sophisticated look team silk pyjama trousers with matching button-front tops, keep a look out for the soft tailoring though. Trousers should be slouchy but still well fitted and tops should come past the trouser top (but could be tucked in too).
- If PJ's isn't really your style but you like the idea then take inspiration from the soft tailored shapes and simple aesthetic. Pair slouchy peg-leg trousers with a simple button-up shirt.
- Maybe a silk Kimono, smoking jacket or dressing gown is more your style. Soft, silk or velvet dressing gowns are feminine and work perfectly with skinny trousers and heels. Smoking jackets are more masculine and give a more androgynous look so team with trousers and a pair of brogues to really nail the look.

- Part of the pyjama trends appeal is simplicity, so don’t over-accessorise. Choose your shoes carefully: heels stop wide-leg pyjama bottoms looking frumpy, whilst flats are perfect for petite ladies and fitted, structured styles

So will you be trying out this trend this season?
I'm not sure its really me, but I may keep my eyes peeled for a smoking jacket as they are beautiful!
