Fall Pajama PartyNovember 5, 2019
One of our favorite guilty pleasures, when the temps dip into winter digits, is slipping into PJs for an evening on the couch. This ultimate downtime activity was the inspiration behind our new collection of sleepwear and lounge pieces, all crafted from a Pima cotton blend. “These feel like true luxury pajamas,” says Theresa McAllen, VP of Design. “Pima cotton is not silky soft to the touch but because it has a longer fiber than traditional cotton, it also tends to wear better—and it feels fabulous to sleep in.” So, whether you’re enjoying a hot toddy on the sofa, morning coffee on the patio or some shut-eye, here’s how to style your downtime.
Classic Pajamas with a Fresh Print
Crafted from a soft Pima cotton and Modal woven this Vino Long Sleep Set is the ultimate evening partner. With a design reminiscent of classic men’s pajamas, these have a relaxed look but with a bold print inspired by Asian floral designs.“I like to start my day with a quick 10-minute meditation and this set is perfect for wearing outside on the back patio for my morning calm,” says Theresa.
Slip on a Sleep Shirt
Like a beautiful button-up, the Mishka Long Sleeve Sleep Shirt has traditional contrast piping and design. “This also works great as a casual robe,” says Theresa. Plus, if you live in a warmer climate, a sleep shirt is the best option for evening since the less clothing you wear, the cooler you’ll be and most likely to get in some prime REM. To max out your sleep shirt’s appeal, wear it unbuttoned over a simple tee and a pair of jeans during the day. Pure casual chic.
Mix and Match Sets
If you like your shut-eye style to match, layer on the Short Sleep Dress under the Sleep Robe. For now, these lightweight cotton wovens are perfect for indoors but in the summer months the dress could easily become a casual slip dress and the robe should be worn like one of our signature kimonos. “Aside from being a perfect holiday gift for someone, I love the feminine floral print–it’s fun, feminine and makes my morning latte that much better!”
