One of the most luxurious and effortless trends from the Spring/ Summer 2012 shows is the pyjamas. Stella McCartney featured some of the most stylish (yet also genuinely pyjama-ish) examples of the look. But how easy is it to wear without looking like you’ve borrowed Hugh Hefner (or, God forbid, your grandad’s) finest silks?
If you don’t want to go for the full-on bedtime story, try wearing pyjama-style separates with a plain top or trousers or a jumpsuit that prevents the outfit from becoming too baggy. Whatever you do though, wear heels. A pair of patent nude courts or sandals (as worn at Stella McCartney) will automatically make this look much dressier.
