Nightdress for Daytime

Fashion News|March 5, 2016

Do you dare to wear a silk dressing gown at any time of the day? Lingerie style is seducing from the bedroom to the office party.

It’s official: bed dressing is no longer reserved solely for the bedroom.

I’m not just talking about pyjama shirts by day – an array of night gowns, silk robes, slinky camisoles and pyjama-style silk trousers made their way down the spring/summer 2016 catwalks, affirming lingerie style is seducing beyond the boudoir this season. The mood is more sensual than overtly sexy.

How to get it right?

When it comes to robes, oyster-coloured silk looks more luxe than white, as proved by Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy – and is softer on the complexion. Keep cuffs short though: bracelet length spells uber-chic, and is far more practical when dining. Ooze sex appeal by opting for a plunging neckline in an otherwise all-covered-up loose-fitting look, or toughen up a floor-length slip dress by pairing with a bomber jacket and trainers, as seen as Alexander Wang.  Trailing ribbons at Givenchy and Calvin Klein tap into another theme of the season: the idea of coming undone, which is imbued with sensuality. Finally forgo ballet flats and elevate your look with heels or studded boots (slippers suggest off to bed). Go a step beyond simple pyjama-dressing: your negligee is now a fashion statement piece.
