People might think that the pyjamas as outerwear trend has only just come around from the most eclectic and forward thinking fashionistas. But this combination of style and comfort, found in a pair of sleek shirt and trouser pyjamas, has been central to wardrobes of some of the most stylish women in history.
Coco Chanel not only innovated the female style and introduced comfort to the female wardrobe but wore her silk garments with pride and paired them with her attitude for the ultimate strong female look.
Audrey Hepburn as Regina Lampert in Charade looked ravishingly stylish in all her outfits, but it was the beautiful set of navy blue silk pyjamas with white accents that really made us fall in love.
Claudette Colbert, the silent film actress, was the first one to wear a beautiful set of pyjamas on the big screen, and Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo soon followed.
Thus, pyjamas became sophisticated evening attire for casual yet stylish entertaining.
Furthermore, drawing inspiration from the wide-legged trouser of the 40s, the 60s brought forward the palazzo pant. It was a comfortable yet fashionable fit when paired with silk. Effortless comfort at it’s best.
Today pyjama dressing is a centrepiece to the chic and fabulous. Selena Gomez paired a beautiful set of pyjamas with a bold lip and sandals for the ultimate statement look. Kate Moss, the ever so modish icon, created a whole collection of pyjamas especially for dressing out.
Pyjamas were a major trend among the attendees of Milan fashion week and the style completely took over New York fashion week this year. It wasn’t only designers opting for the silky shirt look - some of the biggest fashionistas wore their nightwear proudly with chunky coats and sky-high heels.
Here at Bluebella we not only admire Chanel and so many other fabulous women that embraced this look, but we also cherish the comfort of a good set of pyjamas. We love it so much that we can’t resist wearing the Claudia and Abigail on a regular basis, both inside and outside of the house.
Whether it is to the office or on the way to Happy Hour, a pyjama shirt or trousers (or together for the ultimate statement) can be the perfect outfit accessory.
