Shorter evenings and colder nights mean one thing to me – it’s time to get back into pyjamas. There’s something about September 1 that makes me covet those traditional September signifiers, like pencil cases, books wrapped in brown paper and freshly polished shoes. So I tap into this childhood nostalgia by buying new pyjamas. I do this at Christmas too. It’s a tradition I grew up with that I’ve never been able to (well, wanted to) shake off.
I’m a head-to-toe brushed cotton, check pyjama kind-of-girl. But whether you favour cotton or cashmere, here are a few winter warmers to wrap up in this autumn.
This pretty set from River island has a slightly Kimono look to it. The shade of teal and subtle coral flowers make it a very elegant nightwear option.
I love this boyish button-front pyjama top and drawstring-waist bottoms. I’d wrap up in these on a dark evening with cashmere socks and a chunky cardigan.
This pyjama set has a distinctly “ho ho ho” feel to it, but the pretty lace trim on the pockets and trouser hems add a nice feminine touch.
I like to mix and match pyjama sets, so Penneys is a great place to pick up a few inexpensive, interchangeable pieces.
