Every year, when Autumn arrives, I tell myself that I’m going to clear out my
as-soon-as-I-get-home nightwear collection and throw away all of the tatty old t-shirts with coffee stains and leggings with holes in the crotch, and replace them with crisp new sets of pristine pyjamas. It never happens. I end up still wearing my Hufflepuff t-shirt, a holey cardi and the first bottoms that I find – old leggings, running tights, pyjama bottoms that fitted four years ago, before I found Mr Mouse and ate my happiness. But, this might be the year of fresh sparkly new nightwear and I’ve found a few sets that all look a vast improvement on the current situation (having said that, nothing will beat my Hufflepuff top. That has a safe spot in my wardrobe).
First up is the rather adorable London print brushed cotton set from Cath Kidston. It’s a traditional pj style, with a jacket and drawstring bottoms, and looks so cosy. It’s a fairly spendy £50 but I’ve had a couple of pillowcases from Cath Kidston for about 17 years and they’re still going strong, so the cost per wear isn’t too bad!
Next up are this super cute set from La Redoute. It’s has a grumpy hedgehog, comes in a huge range of sizes, is really easy to chuck on when you get home from work, and is a bargainous £19.
From the simple to the silky, I love this red set from Rosie for Autograph at Marks and Spencer. They’d make me feel 376% more adult and sophisticated than I am, as I swanned around the house sipping a martini and listening to Edith Piaf. Or something. They’re a spendy £99 but are also machine washable – win.
The next pair are currently in my ASOS saved items and I suspect they’ll be in my basket very soon – dinosaurs on pyjamas? Yes, please. They might not be the warmest pair of pjs, but would definitely work for when you want to snuggle under three blankets and a duvet. They’re £24.
The penultimate set is this gorgeous blue-with-metallic-stars from Hush. I already have a pair from Hush and they’re great – the bottoms can be a bit tricky to get on if you’re ample of hip/bottom, but they wash well and are really soft. They’re £49.50.
Finally is the spendiest (but most gorgeous) pair. This black set from Whistles x Yolke has a really stunning butterfly moth print, is a silk/cotton mix, and comes with a matching sleep mask. They’re really very pretty. They’re also £175 so might be one for the Christmas list…
