The best summer sleepwear to keep you cool for spring/summer 2021

Posted by for Fashion

From cooling cotton sets to billowing night dresses, we’ve rounded up the best summer pyjamas to help you get the best night’s sleep this season.

Is there anything more inviting then stripping off your day clothes after a long slog of work and slipping into your pyjamas? Ditching the day and whatever drama went with it and replacing it with comfort and joy? Even if our day clothes are currently loungewear, or leggings and an oversized sweatshirt, the promise of pyjamas is enough to send us into a deep slumber of calm.

But what happens when the temperature rises and your flannel pyjamas that have been your source of such comfort, the ones that have seen you through multiple hungover Sundays, have mopped up your Deliveroo dinners and have sat through more episodes of Friends than you care to admit, are now the cause of your restless night’s sleep? Instead of caressing your weary limbs, your pyjamas are now the source of your overheating, your tossing and turning and your 3am wake ups feeling clammy and unsettled. 

The solution? Summer sleepwear. As we prepare for the warmer months, and with another heatwave set to return, it’s time to ditch the heavy-set flannel pyjamas in favour of summer sleepwear. Think starchy linen sets that let your night time skin breath like the Honna short set, billowing cotton poplin night dresses and cute (but cool) short sets that are so chic you’ll want to wear them well into the day.

We’ve rounded up the chicest sleepwear sets to keep you cool (in every sense of the word) and ensure the best night’s sleep this summer.
