Covetable sleepwear styles to help you justify staying in your PJs all day

Words by Ella Bazzani-Hockley

Cosy but still keeping it cute. 

The government’s insistence that we all stay inside as much as possible has inspired a new wave of comfort-focused fashion – pyjamas all day.

Pyjama-chic is certainly nothing new. Over the last decade, we’ve seen brands go heavy on athleisure, the relentless rise of the tracksuit, and baggy jeans and pants become the new norm.

Comfort is now (finally) at the heart of fashion, and I’m very much here for it. With this in mind, here’s a selection of luxe nightwear for a variety of budgets.

Comfy and cute

Technically, the only person I have to impress with these clothes is me (the most important critic of all) but forgive me for wanting to keep it fashionable. I’m picturing myself dramatically draping this luxe, wool Acne scarf around my shoulders while on my daily waddle from my bed to the fridge.

This long-sleeve fleece from Melbourne-based label Baserange, is thick ribbed cotton, with a cosy oversized feel and a cinched-waist tie to remind you of the days when you wore clothing that wasn’t entirely loose. Baserange is also doing this combed cotton onesie that is equal parts 6-year-old in a gymnastics competition and Kendall-Jenner-esque.

These Ariana Bohling shearling slippers are hand-knit by women in Peru, using baby Alpaca wool. They literally look like a baby alpaca, with a chunky knit toe and suede lining, plus they’re fully cushioned. Because fleece is apparently the answer to all my stay-at-home prayers, I’ll be wearing this Albus Lumen x Woolmark eyemask to bed from now on, too. 

In keeping with the luxeness of my isolation style, investing in a floor-length sleep gown is probably so wrong, but why does it feel so right? Not sure how my family would react to my usual mid-morning Nutri-Grain run, except I’m wearing a calf-skimming, elegant floral-embroidered nightgown. Willing to test the waters. 

PJs for a pick-me-up

These Kule socks are a Leandra Medine favourite, so you know they’re reassuringly smile-inducing and firmly in the maximalist camp. Retro style primary colours are the perfect pick me up, and these Aime Leon Dore x New Balance styles are among my most coveted at the moment.  

I can imagine myself living my best toddler-chic life in matching cotton baby tanks and undies from Entireworld. I’ve got my eye on one of its matching underwear and tank sets, but would ideally like one in every colour, please.

This 100% linen button-up set from InBed is a very summery-throwback, but the Australian brand is about more than aesthetics. The brand partners with Women’s Community Shelters, building homeless shelters across NSW – all the more reason to shop.

The classics

They’re called Party Pyjamas for a reason and luckily, NY-based cult brand Sleeper’s best-selling two-piece is on sale at the moment. It’s the feather-trimmed, silky-blend sleepwear set of my dreams.

In keeping with the silk two-piece vibe, these Ettitude bamboo lyocell PJs are easy, breezy, and beautiful and are available in pastel pink or baby blue stripe.

This super soft, silky bamboo romper. This Lonely lingerie one-piece in black and nougat is extra luxurious and pretty much perfect for an all-day, never-take-off type of thing. Maybe put this baggy white button-up over the top for Zoom meetings though? 

As you’re no doubt already aware, coronavirus has well and truly taken hold in Australia, and an increasing number of us will be self-isolating or working from home. We’re living through a scary, uncertain time right now, and it’s easy to get swept up in the neverending cycle of negative news. Over the coming weeks, we hope to provide you with a little reprieve from all the heaviness, and lots of ideas for how to fill all that time you’ll be spending at home. Take care out there and don’t be a stranger. We’re all in this together. Love the FJ team xx
