Pyjamas are more fashionable than ever before thanks to a perfect storm of the self-care movement, a rise in home working and the trend for sleepwear as party wear (we’re looking at you, Sleeper).

Whether it’s a lightweight linen set in the summer, a cotton co-ord in the winter or a silky style that you can wear to the office, pyjamas are one of the best investments you can make.

The comfort blanket you might need after a long day in the office or your essential WFH wardrobe (no judgment here), there are few better feelings than putting on a fresh set for at-home lounging.

If you’re seeking pure practicality, Piglet, Desmond & Dempsey and The White Company are synonymous with sleepwear. But if you’re in the crowd that favours them as a fashion statement, head to Sleeper, The Frankie Shop (think those striped trousers that refuse to stay in stock) and Skims for pyjama pieces that aren’t just for unwinding in.

If you’re looking for a luxury set that feels like a real treat, an affordable co-ord you’ll wear night after night or a foolproof gift for family or friends, we’ve rounded up the best pyjama brands to have on your radar, from high street staples to investment labels. Lounging has never looked so good.
