Nightwear for daywear? Can it be done?! The pyjama trend has be rocking the fashion world over the last season.
Silky slinky lace camis, PJ-styled satin shirts, baggy pants, fluffy loafers, they’ve all been on the catwalk and in stores, and fashionista’s everywhere are loving it.
Unfortunately, I’ve been a little late to the party with this trend and I didn’t get around to investing in any ‘PJ’ pieces as soon as they hit the fashion radar.
However, this fun trend seems to be sticking around a little longer, so what better time to try it than now. Instead of actually styling a ‘daytime’ lace cami, I’ve decided to do things a little differently, and shall we say perhaps a little scandalous?!
You all know I love a challenge, so I challenged myself to style ACTUAL nightwear. Yes, that’s right.
I’ve styled a gorgeous lace chemise nighty, and have made it appropriate for daytime wear with three different looks.
Keen to see how I did? Keep scrolling, babes…
Dressed To The Nines
Yes, of course you can wear a chemise as a dress. Styling it with a long sleeve top instantly gives the outfit a more casual look, and contrasting the lace with stripes provides a super cool wow factor. Add some glam with a gold chain bag and velvet booties, and you have daytime outfit perfection.

Another chic and effortless way to style a chemise is to wear it as a skirt. Throw on a knit jumper over the top, or style as I did and button up a denim jacket, and voila, you have a super cute skirt. Go even cuter, and match the outfit with a beret and pom pom bag, and add a sassy statement with snakeskin ankle boots.

Over The Top
A silk chemise + lace body suit + mega flare pants + longline gold buttoned blazer + pointed toe mules = chic, comfy, sexy and stylish all in one, and an outfit combination you need to copy!
I think this is one of my favourite outfits, ever! I love how the lace chemise complements the bodysuit and flare plants so well, making the whole look seamlessly flow. As the outfit really does all the talking, I say only accessorise with dainty jewels just to add a little sparkle.
