Slumbering in style
Posted By admin On October 4, 2013 @ 7:49 am In Grooming, Social | No Comments
As the long winter nights draw in and the temperature drops, early bedtimes and late lie-ins become ever more appealing. Night time attire and ‘loungewear’ has got a bad rep recently with the whole ‘onesie’ fad, but there are plenty of ways to stay stylish whilst lounging around in your pyjamas- simply look to times gone by for inspiration.
Poplin has embraced the vintage glamour of old movie stars, naming their designs after different actresses- the  Audrey classic pyjamas are amongst our favourites. The  Bardot pyjamas and  short nightshirt are also timeless wardrobe staples. There isn’t a nightshirt version of the Audrey design, but  Oysho makes something similar.
If you like your bedclothes really traditional, you won’t find anything better than  the Sleep Shirt- pioneering ‘19th century design- modern comfort’ for both men and women, and with different length options available for shirts.
Two of our favourite online companies specialise in winter warmers- and with names like  Hush and  Toast, you can tell they know what they’re doing.  Hush’s polka-dot nightshirt is wonderfully comfortable and affordable- their blog makes an excellent read too. Toast have taken nightwear to new heights of luxury with this  cashmere knitted dress- definitely one you wouldn’t mind answering the door in, or even popping to the shops for a pint of milk.
Equally wonderfully named is the company ‘Good Morning Beautiful’ which does what it says on the tin- who wouldn’t fancy throwing on one of these  gorgeous kimono style dressing gowns first thing in the morning?
And finally, back to Audrey- we couldn’t write a piece about bedtime style without referencing Hepburn’s famous Breakfast at Tiffany’s scene, which you can recreate with the help of Talulah Blue on Etsy. She’s replicated  Audrey’s iconic blue sleeping mask and tassel ear plugs. Perfect for sleepovers or even for getting some decent shut-eye on a plane journey.
