If your pajama drawer could use a little livening up, good news: fashionable sleepwear is having a moment, and it’s checking the box with 2020’s matchy-matchy trend. In years past, trend forecasters may not have even lumped pajamas under the fashion umbrella — but this year’s shelter-in-place orders have inspired “it-girls” to shop for pieces they can wear several ways. Enter: the PJ set, whose button-up shirts and silky pants can easily be paired with other ready-to-wear items during the day. With sets rendered in feathers, silks, and stripes, there are 10 chic pajama sets that all fashion girls are going to bed with right now — and they’re coming in at every price point.
Not only are pajama sets a must-have in your own closets — they’re great for holiday gifting, too. Browse 10 simple, playful sets to consider for yourself, and those on your holiday shopping list, below:
This Instagram-famous set from Sleeper definitely wins 2020. The brand is best known for its ostrich feather cuffs, which add a splash of ostentatious fun that can be worn to bed, or out for the evening.
For those who love a color-blocked look, consider Desmond & Dempsey’s long-sleeved set, whose tangerine, black, and white panels are spattered with boisterous florals.
Love the look of crisp, white bedding? This pima cotton set will fit right in. To sweeten the deal, all of Eberjey’s pieces come with a cloud-soft feel that you’ll struggle to trade out for others in your drawer.
For those who prefer a lightweight set, Intimissimi’s camisole and shorts are perfect for a cool, comfortable night’s sleep — and they come in a range of color-ways. The ‘Hot Orange’ hue happens to be one of 2020’s major color trends.
Animal prints are getting a tongue-in-cheek remix from sleepwear brands, who are stamping their PJ sets with zebras and leopards instead of steeping the garments in stripes and spots. Take Olivia von Halle’s silky pair, for instance, whose zebra print is kitschy and chic all at once.
Speaking of animals — Printfresh’s leopard sleep set is hand-screen printed by artisans in India, promising a well-made set with the most vivid colors and details.
For those looking for a slightly more trad print, Sant and Abel’s short-sleeve set puts a feminine twist on classic gingham pattern. With its bubblegum pink color-way, the set is great for wearing into spring and summer months.
Also in baby pink, Fleur Du Mal’s sleepwear look totally nails its “bedroom to boardroom” mantra. The set features a classic wide-leg pant and a surprising smoking jacket, which can easily be styled with LBD’s or blouses during the day.
Last but not least, Reformation’s shorts set comes in a chic ‘Genoa’ print, with navy and white stripes invoking the nautical Italian coasts.
Erin Nevins started her namesake brand after learning that the act of changing into pajamas actually triggers sleep hormones. Therein, she crafted ENevins’ “Restore” set to help women everywhere get the perfect night’s sleep. Its gingham print and bow detail give the classic cami set a sweet, romantic twist.
