A sense of humour is the ultimate way to accessorise your sleepwear style. A nudge, a smile and a knowing wink are all you need to pull it off with aplomb.
All colours and prints work well and sometimes the bolder, evening colours make the most sense. Stripes are chic and totally on trend.

If you’re working a more androgynous look, keep everything loose and team with a tailored overcoat or jacket.

Add a luxe feel to the look by pairing it with velvet slip on’s or bold shoes.
