Sleep is a luxury to many — so why not dress the part? Choosing the right sleepwear is somewhat ‘a personal preference’. But what everyone finds in sleepwear is that it must be the most comfortable thing in their closet. Some people prefer silk, while others may prefer cotton. Sometimes the design tips the scale. Shorts, long-sleeved tops, chemise, floor-length gowns, and even lingerie — the choice can be endless.

There was also a time where nightwear was (and still is) the new outerwear. Dolce & Gabanna was one of the first to introduce the trend into the mainstream fashion industry in 2016, with a line of luxurious sleepwear designs that were made for both indoor and outdoor. Since nightclothes are so comfortable, why not double them up as a cool relaxed look for brunches or social events?

Nevertheless, the line between indoor and outdoor sleepwear seems to be still a little blurry, as other brands like Gucci and Burberry are still releasing newly designed sleepwear for the streets. The ones listed here are designed to be worn indoors, but then again — it is clearly your prerogative as to where you want to wear them.

Now it’s finally time to retire your old oversized tees, unless sleeping in the nude is your preferred choice (as it’s proven to make you healthier and wealthier) — who are we to judge. It’s your choice; go au naturel or simply dress it up with these luxurious loungewear options.
