Around this time of year, the fireplace gets more action, the teakettle remains on the stove and spending all day lounging inside is a true luxury. Waking up to a weekend snow day sets the mood for the perfect cozy outfit, but that doesn’t mean sacrificing your style by throwing on regular old pajamas. We know your sorority t-shirt and soccer shorts are comfortable, but what better time than now to try out a different approach to leisure wear? Dressing to relax may sound ludicrous, but it’s definitely a way to lift our spirits and make us feel happy. Don’t you agree?

Although we encourage you to try every style based on your own atmosphere and personal taste, feel free to indulge as we categorize fancy pajamas by girl.

The Classic Gal

Stay chic in a simple matching top and bottom set. The most common kinds are cotton or flannel styles with cute piping on the collar and hems. They usually come in the following:

Tip: Not warm enough? Layer with a nice sweater cardigan.

The Romantic

Being glamorous at all times of the day is a must. Feminine silhouettes in fabrics like silk and satin are comfy and special. Perhaps one of these will fit your style:

Tip: Layer with a cotton/jersey wrap-robe for extra warmth. Feeling sassy? Try a kimono style robe. The wider the sleeve, the fancier the look.

The Athlete

Some make sweat pants look like tailored trousers, but there is a true art to sporty trends. Cool, modern shapes in fabrics like cotton jersey, sweatshirt and thermal make the best sleepwear. Add these to any wardrobe:

Tip: Add an oversized, fuzzy pullover for extra warmth, texture and style.

We hope that these winter months give you the opportunity to spend quality time with the ones you love. We also hope that, perhaps, these suggestions will spark some outfit inspiration for those times of rest. You never know when someone will pop on by during this holiday season (hopefully, with cookies). When that happens you’ll look put-together … even though you’ve just strolled out of bed saying, “What, this old thing?”
