And so to Bed…
Once the clocks have changed, many of us change into night wear much earlier and wear it in the evening, and even if we’re just watching TV or reading, we deserve to look and feel good.
Does yours make you feel attractive? Please don’t make do with a boyfriend’s cast off old T-shirt. You are worth more. It may be comfortable, but it is possible to feel comfortable and stylish at the same time. First of all, you could try the back of your lingerie drawer and actually wear the lovely stuff you have had since last Christmas.
If you need new, there are lots of gorgeous options to choose from; crisp cotton pyjamas, soft modal wide legs trousers and matching top, or a silky night dress. Texture should play a big part in your choice of nightwear. What feels good against your skin? Silk feels beautiful, but I would recommend machine washable silk; most of our lives are far too busy to be hand washing anything.
Satin is an alternative choice; it has a similar feel but is easy to care for. A ¾ ballerina length chemise is an elegant option. A bias cut will flatter curves and a strappy top encompasses femininity, and shows off the flattering décolletage area. You can even find nightdresses with hidden support if you prefer more structure. If your legs are your best feature then choose a shorter version or a shorts pyjama set, with more coverage at the top. It is always best to leave a little something to the imagination…
A pretty dressing gown in a coordinating colour or fabric will add warmth and cosiness. It is an often neglected area of even the most stylish women’s wardrobe, but, with wonderful nightwear you won’t be able to wait to slip off your coat and shoes and change in to something comfortable, and a little bit glamourous when the nights draw in, or for those precious Sunday mornings in bed with a breakfast tray and the papers.
