The 10 Best women’s nightwear

view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether Christmas will be spent in your own home or someone else’s make sure you’re well dressed when Santa pops in

1. Shorts

£25, Cos, cosstores.com

If you’re the type that overheats in bed, a pair of cool cotton shorts are just the thing. Modelled after men’s boxers, the fly front on this cute gingham pair is thankfully a fake.

2. Nightshirt

£45, Bodas, bodas.co.uk

Available in crisp white, charcoal or this pretty shell pink, this slightly mannish nightshirt is a loose and unrestrictive option for those who toss and turn all night.

3. Nightdress

£45, Rosie for Autograph,  marksandspencer.com

Channelling Hollywood glamour as this full-length pure silk and lace gown does, is sure to result in big sales.

4. Robe

£455, Margaret Howell,  margarethowell.co.uk

While there are plenty of far cheaper options available, this 100 per cent wool plaid dressing gown will last a lifetime.

5. Pyjama bottoms

£32, Calvin Klein, asos.com

Bright as a button, a pair of soft cotton Calvins is a bedtime classic not only for the comfort factor they provide, but also the cheery demeanour a splash of colour brings.

6. Onesie

£28, Iris & Edie, Debenhams

Whether or not a onesie is acceptable outdoors is best left to your own conscience, but nobody would begrudge this level of cosiness in the comfort of your own home.

7. Pyjamas

£35, John Lewis, johnlewis.com

What could be more cheering than changing in to these pyjamas after a long day of turkey eating and board-game playing? Just try and hold off until your guests have gone.

8. Bed socks

£32, The White Company,  thewhitecompany.com

Earn brownie points from your partner by warming your icy feet with these supersoft cashmere socks rather than on their legs.

9. Eye mask

£15, Oliver Bonas,  oliverbonas.com

Wearing an eye mask in bed may seem decadent, but if your curtains let in light this will help to ensure lie-ins aren’t rudely interrupted.

10. Slippers

£20, Dickins & Jones, houseoffraser.co.uk

A ballet-slipper style slipper is great for moving around the house, even if you’re not as nimble on your feet as a member of the Ballet Russes.
