From time to time, a strange trend you just can’t imagine being worn in everyday life, emerges. Enter: the lingerie and pyjamas trend. How you could possibly leave the house looking like you forgot to get dressed is perplexing for any normal person, but the trend was seen across many Spring shows. That must count for something… right?
For those of you that are slightly braver than the rest of us, I’ve created a simple guide on how to wear this tricky trend in real life.
Note: To avoid literally looking like you just rolled out of bed, the best way to wear this trend is polished. A classy heel or bag with a touch of lipstick and painted nails will keep you on the right track.
Paired with sharp tailoring, the lingerie trend can actually look quite chic. Go for loose-fitting jackets and wide leg trousers to balance the amount of skin on show. A tight fit along with revealing clothing would show off too much.
For a more comfortable option, pair a silky slip dress with a slouchy cardigan or jumper. I really like the subtle hint to the trend with the layered jumper over the top, as demonstrated by Aimee Song (Song of Style), above. But she never does wrong, does she?
Toughen up your slip with a leather jacket and boots. Or dress it down with a casual checked shirt tied around your waist. I’d stay away from the silks for this look – opt for a fabric with less sheen.
For a more modest look, wear your bra or slip over your top! This look works best with a fitted top underneath to keep it streamlined, avoiding any odd bunching-up of fabric.

Start off subtle… A piped shirt or jacket hints at the trend without instantly screaming ‘PYJAMAS!’ A belted jacket takes style details from kimono-style robes.
A printed pyjama top can work in the day when worn with sleeves rolled-up and tucked into trousers or jeans. Alternatively, take inspiration from the queen of effortless style, Clemence Poesy, and wear open under a casual jacket.
If you’re feeling wild, or just want an excuse to wear pyjamas all day, it’s best to dress the head-to-toe look up as much as possible. A silk set in black, navy or a muted jewel tone works best. If worn right, it will look like a sophisticated jumpsuit. Tuck the shirt in, roll sleeves up and add heels to finish.
