Nightwear turns daywear in what is undoubtedly this year's most comfortable fashion trend: pyjama dressing

Designers are reinventing sleepwear classics to create chic pieces that you can wear outside the bedroom. Think silky button-down tops with matching loose-flowing wide-leg pants, nightie-like slip dresses and robe coats.

Here's how to master this trend — without looking like you just rolled out of bed.

For the beginner...

Do: Start with one versatile sleepwear-inspired separate such as a silk pyjama shirt in classic black or white with accent piping. Team it with your favourite pair of jeans and complete the look with a leather jacket.

Don’t take this trend too literally by wearing your cotton plaid pyjama pants out of the house. The key to pulling this look off is to rock luxe pyjama-inspired pieces like satiny button-down tops and wide-leg trousers, or a chic silky slip dress.

For the novice...

 

Do: Up the ante by donning a matching pajama suit in classic understated colours like black, white, navy or blush pink.

Don’t go for baggy pajama-like trousers. Opt for tailored, wide-leg pants to keep the look chic.

For the styling expert...

 

Do: Be the queen of this trend by wearing a bold printed matching pyjama set.

Don’t go for childish patterns. Keep it chic and classy with floral, paisley or polka dot prints.
