I love a shirt! White, print, silk, cotton, pockets, lace up – you name it I’ve probably got it. One style of shirt that screams chic but also offers comfort like you’ve just got out of bed is the pajama shirt. It’s not anything new, we first saw the style set showcasing their silky nightwear as daytime offerings a few seasons ago, and it wasn’t just the shirt but full on pyjama party styling with pants too. For some of us that may be a style step too far, especially if it’s a trend you need to explain to everyone, ‘No I didn’t just get out of bed, but yes that is the look I’m going for’!
PJ styling was still big on the SS17 catwalks, Burberry and Prada to name a couple, but the shirt is definitely a buy now wear now piece that will see you through to summer. I know it’s technically still Winter but layered under a chunky cardi and cinched in with a huge waist belt will give you style and warmth until spring has sprung. Take a look below at the ways you could wear, but for me it would always be teamed with jeans.

Our humble high street has some great offerings to rival those catwalk styles. I would go for a silky fabric enabling you to wear the shirt dressed up or down, but there are cotton and sheer styles too making this piece something that can tap into more of the summers’ hottest trends.
All that said here are my top picks, the majority are ‘pyjama style’ shirts, but I’ve thrown in a couple that are actually PJs, so you can head out looking glam in your silk shirt and stilettos which can later be swapped for slippers and the sofa.
