This summer's wardrobe staple has been hiding under your nose - or at least your pillow - all along. Meet your new favourite day to night ensemble - the pyjama set.

Sleepwear as daywear first made an appearance on the spring 2016 catwalks, from Alexander Wang's lace camisoles, to Stella McCartney's pants with prints, to Thakoon's dressing gown-style jumpsuit.

But this extension of the athleisure trend has seamlessly sashayed into summer, with celebs like Margot Robbie, Amber Heard, and Zoe Saldana, all making it their perfect day to night outfit. And like the athleisure trend - which took you from gym to bar - the pyjama set makes you look like you just rolled out of bed (albeit a very chic one) and sashayed straight to the dance floor.

Whether you opt for head-to-toe prints in a pants suit like Margot, mix and match with a silk blouse tucked into jeans like Zoe, or go for full-on boudoir glamour like Amber, always remember comfort is key with this pared-back look; but don't forget your heels. Slippers are not a good look in the street.
