Let’s face it: it’s hot. It’s hot in New Orleans, it’s hot in New York and it’s even hot in California. If there’s one thing everyone can agree on from now until late August, it’s that most of us would rather not be wearing any clothes at all in this weather.
These sleepwear picks are more than fun and frilly choices – they’re all great for hot weather. All of these are right in my sleepwear sweet spot: they’re beautiful, feel great next to your skin and will survive some morning coffee related accidents in one piece. Many can be made to order and others have generous sizing to accomodate all kinds of body shapes and sizes. None of them have built in support, but that’s just another layer to make you sweat, right? Several are even on sale, which makes this a great time to pick up a new set or two.
1. Leopard Play Raspberry Babydoll by Between the Sheets
I actually got this whole set for my birthday and it’s incredible. I’ve been wearing the various pieces a lot, but this babydoll has become one of my all time favorite warm weather sleep pieces. The gold foil just glows in the right light and it’s easy to wash if you sweat in it or drop coffee on it (It’s summer, you know you all have these problems too).
2. Bold Botanics Pajama Bottoms and Top by Beautiful Bottoms
I own two of the short robes by Beautiful Bottoms, but I love these sheer pajamas with all of my heart. They’re the perfect blend of a classic cut and the sheer fabrics that summer makes you crave. The beautiful print is just icing on the cake.
3. Sheer Black Polka Dot Mesh Camisole/Coral Desvalido Signature French Knickers
I just discovered Desvalido through Instagram and was immediately smitten. Her pieces are fun and affordable, while still being handmade in an environment that you can feel good about supporting. She also uses a wide variety of models, proving that her pieces work for all body sizes. While all of her pieces are great (and she’ll be getting a more detailed spotlight later) I love this sheer mesh t-shirt and french knicker combination as a sexy yet easy to wear pajama set.
4. BARBARA Pajama Top and Shorts by La Lilouche
This bubblegum pink set is fun, frilly and nicely 70’s inspired without being too literal. It’s an unexpected play on the classic pajama top and shorts set and a lovely way to stay cool this summer.
5. Raw Silk Nightgown by Sandmaiden Sleepwear
Sandmaiden Sleepwear has been an Etsy staple for ages, but I continue to fall in love over and over again with their pieces. My newest obsession is this raw silk nightgown: it’s made to measure and can be ordered in six different colors. I love the draped look combined with the lacing that can help change the shape of the nightgown. It’s a practical and unusual piece that’s ethically made and won’t clear out your bank account.
6. NK iMode White Ruffled Bolero Bed Jacket
Yeah, I know, we’re talking about pajamas. But we all know how I feel about bed jackets (and robes). And really, what says “summer” more than a white ruffled bed jacket? Wear this with your cutest white panties as a barely there set or channel your favorite Hollywood star while you take off your makeup or read in bed. As a bonus, it would look really cute over a slipdress.
What’s your favorite piece in your sleepwear drawer? Do any of these grab you?
