Trend of the week: Onesie

After a silly season of office parties and Christmas celebrations, staying in looks as oh-so-tempting. That’s not to say sleepy should win out over matters sartorial. Au contraire! The seductive call of the sofa is matched only by some of the most luxe jim-jams around! Whether silks, cable knit or cashmere, the focus is all about cosy chic. This way should any unannounced visitors call to the door; you won’t be left out in the cold.


Be a lounge lover with a decadent cashmere robe – the perfect way to do lazy yet lovely chic. Contrary to the old wives’ tale, cold feet do not a warm heart make. Sheepskin mules and slippers, on the other hand, make for super cosy toes. Staying in doesn’t mean letting the side down. A matching sock and hot water bottle set makes a seriously snug statement. Going to blanket street? Partner those silk PJs with a silk pillowcase – a classic tip for preventing unsightly bedhead.
