I prefer to wear no clothes at all (have offended many a housemate traipsing around zee house in underwear) but if I must wear something, let it be pyjamas. Lucky me, fashion designers are having a collective pyjama party!

The first slew of suiting cropped up in the Spring 2012 shows, but the pyjama look really took priority in the recent Pre-Fall Collections.

This Matthew Williamson delight is all I want to wear right now!

Meanwhile, fashion-foward Euro-babes are taking pyjama dressing to the streets. It’s like Where’s Wally? but Wally is hot and a girl.  This trend is for the boys too, as Ryan Gosling aptly demonstrated at Cannes (below), though he pared his version back by taking the pyjama cue but losing the print.

While the runway look is head-to-toe print, this trend can be taken as inspirational rather than literal. The key elements are:

SILHOUETTE (slouchy, wide leg and sleeves, button through top with collar);



If an entire suit of printed paisley is overkill for you, pick one element and build your outfit around it. Below are some of my favourite runway inspirations, plus some neat shoes that would update any old standard skinny leg jean combo.

Get styling!
