Pyjama Parties and Red Noses!

Happy Red Nose Day Everyone!!

In support of this worthy fund-raising event my two girls are attending a sponsored Pyjama Party at school.

Much to my horror, I was informed by them both that my favourite item, ‘the onesie’ was required,  “Everyone will be wearing them!”

Against my better judgement I acquired a couple of the offending articles and packed the little darlings off to school!!

They actually don’t look too bad.

I won’t be spending the day in my pyjamas or a onsie for that matter, but I thought it would be fitting to write a post about the latest trend for S/S ’13, and happily it ties in perfectly with todays proceedings…

Yep, the pyjama trend has taken hold and it’s far too stylish to be kept in the bedroom.

Being dressed head to toe in a print may not be for the shrinking violets amongst us, but done well this can be a very elegant and relaxed look and not necessarily that tricky to wear.

Stella McCartney and Diane Von Furstenberg championed the trend during the S/S ’13 shows and the look seems set to stay as it continued to gain momentum throughout the recent A/W ’13 fashion weeks.

Stella McCartney, sent her girls out in a block printed, relaxed alternative to the trouser suit…I’m sold, if only I could look like this!

At Jonathan Saunders, the look had a more daywear feel to it. Wearing the pj pant back to a loose-fitting but plain pj top, is an easier alternative to the head to toe look.

Diane Von Furstenberg played with contrasting opaque and sheer fabrics to break up the wall of print.

And at Hermes there was not a print in sight, just relaxed, layering creating a languid pyjama- esque look.



Fast forward to A/W ’13, and Louis Vuitton has upped the nightwear ante, going all out for the look. His femme fatale collection of satin printed pyjama suits, chemise dresses and slips worn back to mens coats as bathrobes was elegant and definitely brought nightwear out of the bedroom!

Am I alone, but the more I see it, the more I like it? I will definitely be trying the pyjama trend out, will you?

Have a good weekend everyone!

  1. Hi there! Your girls look ultra cute, I’m sure they’ll have a fabulous day at school! I love the DVF look here-this is a trend that I like on others but not sure if i will go for it, if I did then it would be in the summer with the slouchy trousers rather than a head to toe look. Have a good weekend too xxx

  2. It’s the practical mum part of me coming out here. What happens when they want to go to the toilet – it will be a full strip down job! It’s the reason why I’ve not got my boys any for night time – incase the call of nature calls and they can’t get stripped off fast enough. They do look cute admittedly. We are doing crazy hair and red clothes this time.

    I like the way the pyjama pants look on other people – not wholly convinced on myself but never say never :o)

  3. I can’t see myself adopting this look. I think I’m too small and would look like I’m auditioning for the part of one of the seven dwarves! But having said that, it is a look that I’m warming to … on others that is! Your girls look gorgeous. I hope they had a really fun day. Helen
