How To Wear the Pyjama Shirt Trend


Stretching out the trend from Alexander Wang and Dolce & Gabbana SS16 runway looks, we're still wearing pyjamas out in public and it's almost 2017. If you haven't tried the trend yet, definitely try it soon! Coming into hot summer months in Australia, these pyjama blouses can be a light statement piece with bold piping. Or if you're in the Northern Hemisphere - wearing a darker matching set might be for you.

I recently wore this pyjama styled blouse out for an afternoon in Subiaco, warm enough to wear a skirt, cool enough in the evening for a long sleeved top. I adore the cheeky embroidery on the pocket, Sonder the Label picked this one right! 

Wearing an unstructured pyjama top will give you the freedom to style up the piece to suit the occasion - not to mention, staying comfortable! Make sure it's not baggy like your actual pyjama tee! Matched with black slim fitting pants and a blazer to create a work look, or a flowing skirt, or denim to dress a bit more casual but without tucking yourself into bed.

Silk shorts with this trend is a cute combination to try. Bring the outfit together with a structured bag, a dressy shoe or mule and a definitely fresh fitted shirt is the the way to go.

My number one tip when styling this trend would be to wear either an intricately detailed or bold piece, like this blouse with beautiful floral embroidery. This way, it appears as though you've deliberately chosen to wear this pyjama ensemble as an outfit (and not forgotten to change out of bed early in the morning!).

Embroidered Lettering, bold piping (Like this blouse!), collar and pockets styles are all an important part of deciding what your shirt says about your look and the personality of the piece. I haven't tried the head to toe combination yet, I might leave that for cooler months I think!

I love experimenting with this trend while it's still pretty normal to wear pyjamas outside of the house without a face-mask and bunny slippers. Here's a few other pj's I've got my eyes on!
