Ladies pyjamas: 9 luxe PJ sets and brands to know in 2020

Posted by for Fashion

From Alexa Chung’s favourite sleepwear to exclusive prints from Liberty London, these are the luxe loungewear brands to know.

Let’s face it, we’re all spending a lot more time than usual wearing our sleepwear. The idea of putting on a great pair of PJs and merging into the sofa is something we love all year round, so we might as well make the most of it right now. 

Fashion queen Alexa Chung launched her first sleepwear collection for her brand ALEXACHUNG and if the satin pistachio styles, vintage details and paisley prints don’t make you happy to hit the pillow, we don’t know what will.

Then there are the lesser-known brands, including Honna created by stylist Barbara McMillan with a now signature classic stripe set doing the rounds on Instagram. Liberty London’s archives have also been searched by the in-house designers to find exclusive prints for iconic luxury silk sets, and they give you the perfect excuse to get dressed up for staying in.

Best part? The shirts are so chic, if you login to your morning Zoom meeting while you’re still wearing them, no one will guess you’re still in your pjs. 

Make a cup of tea, sit back, and continue reading to find all the luxe loungewear brands that will make staying in the new going out.
