[dropcap]I[/dropcap] have challenged myself this week to post an outfit a day for 5 days! Today, I’m indulging in this ever so chic trend that has been around for a while. It is amazing how stylish you can look in sleepwear-inspired matching sets. Full disclosure, this is a classic ZARA head to toe outfit; from the matching pajama-style set, to the straw bag and vinyl sandals (you know the love is real).
There are a few things I love about this set. First, the fabric couldn’t feel any more luxurious. It’s a silk blend with velvet trimmings on the sleeve cuffs and pockets on the robe, and on the sides and ankles of the pants. I also love the fit of the pants. They are high waisted with an elastic band on the back for a cinched waist. It also has great versatility, you could style the robe and the pants separately if the matchy-matchy isn’t your thing.
Here are few tips to help you slay in your sleepwear if you are trying this trend out for the first time:
- The fabric is so important. Please don’t leave your house in cotton pajamas! (well if you really love them, then by all means- do you boo!). Fabric like silk or satin is more flattering. It hugs the body in all the right places, moves with you, and gives that effortlessly polished look.
- Choose pattern and colour wisely. If you’re not one for patterns, there are lots of plain and nicely accented options. When choosing a pattern, go for one that you love A LOT, and that flatters your skin tone and body type. Especially because you will be dressed head to toe in that pattern (if you wear the set together anyway). Confidence comes easy when you love what you are wearing.
- Accessorize! If you go with a beautiful print, I’d recommend accessorizing with understated pieces like barely-there or vinyl/perspex heels for a dressed up look, and cute flats or sneakers for a more laid-back outfit. I love to play with on-trend pieces as well, like a basket bag or belt bag. But there’s also nothing wrong with some timeless pieces like hoop earrings and a charm bracelet!
So is this a trend you’d wear? I’d love to know how you like to style yours!
