One minute, you’re dripping with sweat and tossing the covers aside, despite having gone to bed in nothing but your pants. The next minute, you’re shivering en route to the bathroom for your 4am wee. Menopause? No, just winter. It happens every year. And yet when you look in your pyjama drawer, whadyaknow but you have no bananas. I mean pyjamas. Maybe all the influencers stole them, and are standing in front of distressed brick walls taking photos for their Instagram feeds. But probably not. Your pyjamas were never chic enough for that.
It’s time to up your game. The good news about pyjamas being fashionable (yes, people really are wearing them “for day”) is that there’s more choice than ever in the shops. If flamingo pink satin trimmed with maribou is your thing, the chances are higher than usual that you will find them. As for what constitute the most fashionable styles, well, it seems weird to talk about pyjama trends, frankly. They’re so subjective. One woman’s silk is another woman’s wincyette. Some find the merest hint of stretch (i.e. any Lycra content) super-sweaty; others swear by 100% cotton pima. Tip: think cosy. Unless you’re severely menopausal, in which case: think naked.
