Given that we’ve been spending a lot more time at home (and therefore, a lot more time on the internet), we’ve made the observation that our online shopping carts are almost a symbolic representation of our current state of mind. Case in point: the only thing in our shopping carts right now (obviously aside from the essentials) are fancy pyjamas.
And while this might seem like a trivial endeavour given the state of the world, sometimes it really is the little things that allow you to feel like you’ve got some control over at least one part of your life. And for us right now, that’s expressing our sartorial side through fancy sleepwear.
Importantly, if you’ve suddenly found yourself working or studying from home, simply changing into "sleeping clothes" before bed, as opposed to just living in the loungewear you’ve been hanging/working/snacking/social distancing in around the house in, can act as a symbolic way to provide some mental distance from being "at work", regardless of the fact you can probably still see your desk from your bed (AKA your "soft office").
So, if like us you feel the need to invest in a pair of fancy pyjamas more than ever right now, we’ve made a list of all the best pairs to shop to add a little routine and luxury to your self-iso life.
Cotton On Flannel Sleep Shirt
Jasmine And Will Portofino Long Pyjama Set
You can’t go wrong with this comfortable and classic striped set from Aussie sleepwear label Jasmine and Will. Shop the set here.
Bed Threads 100% Flax Linen Slip
Bed Threads' beautiful linen sheets are (quite literally) what dreams are made of. They recently launched a sleepwear line with slips and robes in their signature earthy tones. We love this golden rust colour. Shop it here.
Chalmers Mia Sleep Set
Channel some big cat Tiger King vibes with this super cute set from Byron Bay-based label Chalmers. Shop it here.
Sleeper Marquise Lace-Up Linen Dress
Sleeper's stunning linen pieces are all about giving sleepwear a double life. Is it a dreamy nightie inspired by the romantic heroines of French films and novels? Or is it your post-iso picnic look? It is absolutely both. Made from beautiful easy to wash linen, this sky-blue dress will stay in your wardrobe forever. Shop it here.
Tommy Hilfiger Short-Sleeve Sleep Dress
We are all about the sleep dress (basically an oversized shirt situation that requires no pants and max quarantine and chill). Shop it here.

Perfect for chilling at home all day, every day, this set features clean white piping and super soft jersey. Shop it here.
Les Girls Les Boys Striped Pyjama Set
This set feels a little Amalfi Coast and will totally get you dreaming of your next big trip. We also love that the cami could totally become brunch-wear when quarantine is over. Shop it here.
Hanro Ultralight Cotton Slip
We are big-time fans of Hanro's long-lasting cotton basics. This weightless, fuss-free beauty combines comfort with a little versatility. Use it as a slip or slip into it at bedtime. Shop here.
Cotton On Long Line Flannel Sleep Shirt
Yes—more flannel. But we could live in this oversized number. Pair it with some sleep socks and you're in comfort heaven. Shop it here.
