There’s nothing more dreamy than the prospect of sleeping in, sans alarm, wearing silk and satin jammies. In such conditions, heaven truly is a place on earth.

Praise be, then, to the likes of Richard Quinn, Stella McCartney, Pour Les Femmes, Olivia Von Halle and House of Hackney, who have all nailed the brief – making our fantasies a reality with elegant night-cum-lounge and daywear, that serves as the ideal attire for the coming festive weeks.

Featuring a medley of motifs – think prancing zebras, playful lobsters, vibrant juxtaposed rose prints, and scrawling handwritten messages – these delicious designs are far too good to hide under the covers.

When à la maison, don your silken sets in their splendid entirety, meanwhile tuck those tops into high-rise jeans when en plein air, and throw a belted robe into the mix for peak elegance. Think maximum style with minimum effort… No one need ever know!
