Nightwear has become fashionable to wear as daywear. This is the season to flaunt the silhouettes that were once only for the boudoir. Back in 2008 designers first started to show variations of the nightwear-as-daywear trend. Today, runways and street style stars have convinced us how versatile this trend really is: you can shop anything from chemises to full-on pajama sets and still look appropriate. With the rise of relaxation and mindfulness, it is no wonder nightwear inspired outfits are everywhere.
I have been waiting to find the perfect pajama set for a while now because I didn’t know if I wanted to go with a solid or print. I ended up finding this set with subtle stripes from an Urban Outfitters brand called Out From Under. I love the brand’s selection of comfortable loungewear, I highly recommend checking some of their pieces out. Even though it is acceptable to wear pj’s nowadays, I never want to look like I completely rolled out of bed. Therefore, I compensated by dressing up my look with a pair of pumps and chandelier earrings. It’s the perfect ensemble for a nice dinner.
There is no doubt that the rise of sportswear has played a key part in making this nightwear product category wearable outside of its norm. Women are always looking for clothes that are comfortable and boudoir elegance fits this motive perfectly. Nightwear-as-daywear is only continuing to grow as a trend: Spring 2016 is filled with pieces that are inspired by the bedroom. I look forward to continuing to embrace the “I woke up like this”ethos and maybe even find a slip dress to wear next.
