How to style the trend.
Home leisurewear is having a major moment! Whether you’re running errands for essentials or on a Skype conference call for work, your boudoir elegance is no longer reserved for the bedroom.

Covid-19 has breathed a new lease of life into the social acceptance of the home leisure trend. Is there anything more sophisticated than donning silk jammies from dusk till dawn?
To achieve a more street appropriate home leisure look, you can go for pyjama inspired garments – palazzo trousers, wide-leg trousers, gipsy blouses and shirt-dresses. Aim for luxe stylish sleepwear. Avoid cotton or polyester, but rather opt for structured silhouettes in elegant florals and striped prints or plaid patterns with distinguishable pyjama detailing – an open neckline, loose sleeves and lace embroidered robes in soft silks or shiny satins.
Play with textures and proportions to keep your outfit modern and updated. Wear a camisole under an unbuttoned oversized pyjama top tucked into a pair distressed denim pants and bedhead hair for a signature errand running outfit.

Polish your outfit with a voguish overcoat, blazer or jacket across your shoulders and adding chunky bold accessories, a structured handbag, a pair sunglasses or a lightweight scarf. Avoid wearing casual footwear such as slippers and flip-flops. You want to look like you just rolled out of bed yet are ready to take on the world.
