Mustard Monday 100% Cotton Pyjama Shorts
No matter the temperature, our pyjama prerogative is simple: breathable fabrics with a stylish design. Mustard Monday’s cotton pyjama shorts top the list for two reasons: not only are they made from 100% lightweight cotton, but they have side pockets as well as a comfy elasticated drawstring waist, making them the ideal loungewear item for mooching around the house.
The most difficult decision? Choosing just one of the seven colours and patterns…
Their Nibs Women's British Butterflies Cotton Cami Capri Pyjamas
First there was the resurgence of Y2K fashion and now the 90s are having a moment in the sun, thanks to the return of the butterfly motif that Mariah Carey championed back in the day. Now Their Nibs is honouring the look with its summer cami capri pyjama set that’s worthy of modern-day tastes.
Made from 100% breathable cotton and available in sizes XS-3XL, this strappy cami and three-quarter-length capri pyjama set is ideal for those evenings when it’s humid, hot and stuffy. Plus, its watercolour butterfly print is educational, too – showing the names of each British butterfly species. Smart and stylish? We’re sold.
Their Nibs Ladies Pink Mardi Gras Shortie Cotton Pyjama Set
Mark our words – shirt/shorts co-ords will be huge this summer. But if the thought of wearing one to the beach or park isn’t for you, there’s no reason why you can’t swan around the house in Their Nibs’ cheery shortie pyjamas when summer arrives (not to mention wearing them to bed, of course).
Made from 100% cotton, the joyful pink design features a riot of mardi gras daisies combined with other brightly-coloured flowers and peacock feathers that will help you wake up in a good mood every morning.
Le Colonel Liberty cotton pyjama shorts
When you think of chic floral prints, there’s no doubt Liberty’s iconic designs spring to mind. Dresses, bags, pillowcases, you name it – swathe it in a Liberty print and the appeal automatically quadruples. So it’s no wonder we’ve brought back the bestselling Liberty lounge shorts from French atelier Le Colonel in two new prints, with an exclusive £5 saving only available on The Drop.
Handmade in Le Colonel’s Lille studio, naturally the French touch adds elegance to the classic pyjama short silhouette with a soft silk bow and micro side slit without compromising on comfort thanks to the elasticated waist.
Their Nibs ladies traditional cotton pyjama set, white spring hare
Whether Peter Rabbit and his sisters Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail are your favourite Beatrix Potter characters or you’re looking for an outfit to mooch around the house in over the weekend, Their Nibs’ spring hare pyjamas have nostalgia written all over them.
Made from 100% breathable cotton in a traditional PJ style with contrasting piping, we’re particularly loving the trousers’ elasticated waist.
The Big Silk luxury pure mulberry silk robe
If you dream of starting the day like a 1950s Hollywood starlet (rather than a slightly frazzled hybrid worker), this slip-on pure silk robe is the easiest shortcut to fabulousness. Perfect for keeping the chill out now that warmer temperatures are on their way, The Big Silk’s signature robe is the style we’ll be wrapping ourselves in.
Available in blush pink or white, the versatile kimono style has a suits-all shape. Plus, pocket devotees will be pleased to know that the robe delivers on the storage front, too. And thanks to its temperature-regulating, lightweight mulberry silk, it’s as cooling as it is luxurious.
Their Nibs ladies traditional cotton pyjama set
We don’t care what Miranda Priestly said – florals for spring may not be groundbreaking but that doesn’t mean wearing the sartorial version of a flower meadow to bed won’t cheer us up. So it makes sense that British sleepwear label Their Nibs has brought some plant power to this 100% cotton pyjama set.
Inspired by sprawling wild flowers, we love the contrasting white trim, the comfortable elasticated waist tie and the even more comfortable pockets (because let’s face it, all clothing is better with pockets).
