H&M's pyjama outfit


First there was Stella McCartney's spring/summer pyjama suit. Then there was Marni for H&M's PJ set. And, of course, the wisteria-print top and trousers from Whistles. Now meet H&M's autumn/winter pyjama outfit.

This H&M two-piece in a graphic print channels autumn/winter's new favourite colour: claret. But it's the cut of the trousers that turns this pyjama set from just-rolled-out-of-bed into workwear smart. Instead of summer's loose PJ pants, these are cropped and fitted. And they're just £12.99, with the top coming in at £19.99.

I first spotted this pyjama suit on my friend Laura, who made it look so sophisticated I didn't believe it was high street at first. To add more of a work focus, she wore a black tux jacket on top and carried Zara's iconic tote bag in black. She looked so fabulous she got snapped by a New York street-style photographer!

Like summer's pyjama trend, the great thing about this outfit is how you can wear it. Just as I've worn my Marni for H&M PJ pieces individually (see here and here) and my Whistles wisteria-print trousers sans matching top (see here), this H&M two-piece works great as separates.

In fact if you don't fancy an all-over print, I recommend the trousers as a really good buy. They'll look great with a crisp white shirt or a cream blouse.

And if you do want to work the head-to-toe PJ look, here's some tips. I'm so pleased my favourite spring/summer trend continues apace into the next season.

  1. I've been lusting after those trousers for a while now, I didn't know there was a matching top you look fab. Even more in love now, must get to H&M as soon as before these sell out! xxx

  4. How do these wear? I've bought H&M trousers in what I think is the same material and they lose their shape by the end of the day...
