Pyjama dressing — silky, loose-fitting dress shirts and matching pants — is no longer confined to the bedroom. The sleek, tailored pieces of this outfit are fast becoming a chic work-to-weekend option.
Blouse: Wear a trimmed pyjama-style blouse with a slim cut over tailored trousers or with structured shorts. A long-sleeve option offers a more formal approach while a short sleeve blouse can be a breezy alternative. The key to nailing the look is to avoid excess patterns and fabric. Stick to thin pinstripes in pastel hues or fine printed fabrics in tailored silhouettes.
Dress: You have the option of a floor length dress with white piping details or embellishing with relaxing prints for a simple look for summer. This ensemble does not need much more than a simple pair of wedge heels and a structured ladylike bag for a luxe, laid-back look. Its modest length and delicate detail make it an appropriate business-casual option. If you want to spruce up the dress, add an air-light ruffle or peplum to playfully subvert your silhouette. Go for minimalist, off-duty model sleek with black ankle boots and an envelope clutch.
Pants: Allow the pants to be the focus with great patterns in luxe fabrics. You may counter the relaxed fit with a fitted tee in a solid shade, for a graphic mod look, pair a black and white striped pyjama pant with a bold neon tee and peep-toe heels. This style makes you look fashionable and laid-back when on a weekend outing with friends, a brunch at a beach restaurant or a lazy window shopping afternoon.
Ensemble: Stick to fabrics like silk and crepe to avoid the flannel-plaid pyjama set look. Try combining fine printed trousers with a matching top with slightly different colouring. Or, pair two contrasting prints for a bold take on the summer trend. If going for an all-over and breezy striped pyjama suit, add bright, complementary statement heels to your ensemble.Flaunt this pyjama-inspired ensemble somewhere fun and artistic, like checking out a new exhibition at an art Gallery or going to a fashion show.
