Sleepwear beyond the bedroom was already big for Spring/Summer 2016 and it seems the trend saw us as we stepped into the colder months as well! We love this trend because it not only excels in effortless chic but because it privileges comfort and if you’re anything like us, silky separates will quickly make it onto your staples list! To master boudoir elegance without looking like you’re off for an afternoon snooze, prioritize luxe fabrics like satin and silk, keeping them crinkle-free for a polished silhouette defined by smooth lines.
For the crisp cold mornings, add a longline cardigan and/or oversized coat, preferably referencing one of the colors from your ensemble or keeping the rest of your look monochromatic with a touch of color on your feet, if you have chosen a patterned style. When shopping for a co-ord, look for a standout feature; double-breasted tops, a whimsical print or slim fit bottom all offer a contemporary take on this trend and make an ideally constructed look for a dinner date or party. Finish off the look with understated accessories as it is all about sticking to a minimal, ‘undone’ feel with this trend.
Plimsolls in a luxe finish like high-shine leather or satin are a great option for daytime and when out on the weekend, while a structured stiletto in a bold color, elevate each separate and make it office-appropriate. The relaxed shirt of your fashion pajamas presents perfect middle ground between smart and casual, you can lift the look with slim ft denim or culottes and a pair of metallic patent Mary Janes. If you want to break up your look when wearing a matching top and bottom, layer a crisp white tee under the open top for a street-style-ready outfit or a lacy bralette for a night out, make sure that the hem hits just at the ankle and spice up the look with a pair of velvet platforms for added texture.
