There’s nothing better than a lazy day at home, lounging about in your favourite comfort clothes. But that’s no reason to turn yourself into a slouch, if this season’s pyjama trend is anything to go by.
That’s right – it’s all about taking what is normally reserved for the privacy of our boudoir and wearing it proudly in public.
Kate Moss was recently spotted sporting a bold black-and-white pyjama-like lounge suit while endorsing a property development in the UK. Stunningly simple, it was a stylish combination perfectly suited to the campaign, which was, of course, all about the home.
Designer Derek Lam kicked off the trend earlier this year and others have followed suit, including Michael Kors, who has embraced pyjama dressing with a luxe chic-printed look.
But if there’s one celebrity who’s worn the pyjama look in all its simplistic glory, it has to be Selena Gomez. The actress/singer, who is fast becoming a global style icon, stepped out in Paris just last month wearing a luxe navy blue, piped pyjama set, complete with red satin heels and matching fire-engine red lipstick.
While we are not yet brave enough to sport our pyjamas in public, you can still get the look with a pair of palazzo trousers and a breezy, flowing silk blouse. Teamed with the right accessories – strappy heels and a chic handbag – you’ll be looking bang on trend, albeit not quite out of bed.
A crisp collarless shirt is an essential mainstay for anybody wanting to get the PJ look. Just make sure the back is slightly longer than the front for an authentic touch. Available at laredoute.com for RO23

Complete the look with this classic Jaeger Julienne tote – perfect for the PJ-loving fashionista who can’t live without lugging around everything but the bathroom sink. From jaeger.co.uk/home for RO88

1. The rule of the game here is to avoid an old pair of tracksuit pants and sweaty T-shirt. It’s about looking chic, not literally like you’ve just rolled out of bed.
2. Also a no-no is teaming the pyjama look with a pair of slippers – no matter how tempted you are.
3. As always, accessories maketh the outfit and strappy heels are a great option, while make-up should be flawless.
