If lockdown taught us anything, it’s that investing in pyjamas is always a good idea.
Searches for PJs boomed last winter as we prepared for a long, cold winter cosied up at home. Little did we know we’d be wearing them throughout a third national lockdown, but on the plus side we definitely made the most out of them.
In fact the long period confined to our homes gave us a newfound appreciation of loungewear and nightwear, which we’re not planning to give up anytime soon. The way we see it, pyjamas are like practical shoes: while we usually spend more on clothes we plan to wear for occasions we can dress up for, we actually spend the most time wearing our PJs and comfy shoes than anything else.
Now we’re finally coming out the other side of lockdown (hopefully), summer is on the horizon and all of our winter pyjama sets are far too warm to wear. So this spring, we’re investing in some lightweight sets to wear all season.
While short sets are the obvious choice, we’ve got a newfound appreciation for night dresses to thanks to Rixo’s latest PJ collection. Cotton pyjamas are a smart choice for warmer nights too as the fabric is extra breathable, but can be layered when it gets chilly.
Here are our favourite options available now, with plus-size, affordable, sustainable and pretty sets from Rixo, Next, New Look, Hush, ASOS, The Slowlist and more.
