Lately I’ve been consumed by the Pyjama trend! First we had the Lingerie as Outwear style take over the latter end of the summer season; silky slip dresses with lace accents and bralets underneath blazers were everywhere – but now it’s gone up a notch and you need look no further than your bedroom for inspiration.
Taking inspiration from the catwalks of Thakoon, Alexander Wang and Dolce & Gabbana, the trend trickled into the high street stores with the introduction of piped pyjama shirts and soon, printed pyjama sets were gracing the rails – not for the faint hearted!
This is one trend that can be interpreted a thousand different ways, whether you want to subtly work it into your everyday wardrobe or want to make a serious statement by rocking the look head to toe! I was a bit wary at first, wondering would it literally look like I had rolled out of bed?! But I teamed this printed shirt from New Look, (see below) with some black Molly jeans from River Island for the Cocoa Brown #KindBloggerBoss event recently & it was such a comfy, yet trendy look 🔑
But it’s all about how you style key pieces, like the pyjama shirt, that will make it work for you. Go up a size for an looser, oversized fit but keep whatever you’re wearing on the bottom fitted so you’re not swallowed up by your outfit. Tucking a shirt slightly into your favourite jeans is a nice nod to the trend.
If you choose to go all out with a full pyjama set, mismatching prints looks so cool! The same print head-to-toe is a hard look to pull off unless you’re supermodel tall, so if like me, you’re a wee bit shorter, the mis-matched look creates a better illusion.
I’ve pulled a couple of different ways to wear the trend below with fashion from high street brands that are all available online right now 👌🏼 Introduce the trend with these shirts which look just as good over jeans as they do over skirts, making them really versatile!
Shirt: ASOS | Skirt: River Island | Boots: River Island
Shirt: ASOS | Jeans: Zara | Heels: Zara | Handbag: Zara
Shirt: River Island | Trousers: River Island | Mules: Office | Handbag: Missguided
I think these next two looks are really chic and would be gorge for a night out! The two pieces just ooze sophistication and the block colours will work well for a variety of body shapes. The belts will also nip you in at the waist, creating a stunning silhouette.
Waistcoat: Missguided | Trousers: Missguided | Heels: ASOS | Necklace: Betty & Biddy
Waistcoat: ASOS | Trousers: ASOS | Bralet: River Island | Clutch: River Island
Go all out with some printed styles and like I mentioned above, don’t be afraid to mix prints or alternate these pieces around with each other. You’ll look like you’ve been a Street Style Kween forever!!
Shorts: River Island | Blazer: River Island | Heels: Public Desire | Choker: River Island
Shirt: ASOS | Trousers: ASOS | Shoes: Public Desire on ASOS | Bag: River Island
