It’s okay to get dressed up for bed

Getting ready for bed should be no different than preparing for your day in the morning. My morning routine is basically identical to my nightly routine. I guess predictability and symmetry keep me even keel since life can be chaotic. In the morning, whenever I'm thinking about what to wear, I keep it pretty streamlined with thoughtfully chosen basics. I wear something similar every day—just in a different color, fit or fabric. Then when it's time to get ready for bed, I throw on an old gym tee with a pair of basketball shorts that you can barely see the logo. Reliable? Yes. Stylish? Not so much.

But I recently tried out some pajama pants and they've changed my outlook on bedtime/lounge attire. They're navy (one of my favorite colors to wear) and even have two handy pockets. They're lightweight and breathable, meaning I can sleep under a duvet and not sweat throughout the night. They also look great while I'm hanging around the house on weekends or taking the dog out in the morning in some slippers or Boston clogs.

Looking to step up your loungewear game? Remember that flowy and airy is the best fit. You don't want something that's going to be clingy or restrictive while getting some beauty rest. If you're a uniform dresser then a matching set works—they all come in great fabrics for summer and winter so you can stay cozy year-round. Are matching sets not really your thing? Then break up your boring loungewear fits with some luxe cashmere shorts, silk shirts or a comfortable waffle-knit. Don't be afraid to wear these out of the house. Some loungewear can be worn from dusk to dawn and back again. We've selected a few that you can wear while it's still hot or some heavy-duty ones that'll keep you cozy and casual in the colder months. Take your pick.

Time to Unwind

Try lighting a candle while unwinding before bed. They reduce stress and there's nothing better than the left-over aroma of black vanilla, amber and sandalwood to create a warm and relaxing ambiance before a restful evening.
