There’s a new fashion trend in town and this one we can absolutely get on board with – pyjama pants

Whilst Leopard print jeans and Capri pants are having their moment, this new style is creeping in to overtake.

Loved by celebrities such as Chrissy Teigen, Margot Robbie and Heidi Klum, and quite frankly, if it’s good enough for them, then it’s good enough for us.

Let’s face it, we have all been there where we wake up and the thought of putting an outfit together is too much. You don’t want to wear a figure-hugging dress, but you don’t fancy a skirt. You’re not in the mood for jeans, but you also don’t want to layer up too much, it’s quite tiring.

These are some of the reasons which make pyjama pants a look we’ll be wearing for seasons to come.

Easily to dress up or down with a swap of shoes or opt for a matching shirt for a chic head-to-toe look, you’ll be looking less Bananas in Pyjamas and Andy Pandy, and more catwalk-ready.

Thankfully many brands are already jumping on the trend, so it won’t break the bank taking on this new trend.

So, it’s time to step out of the bedroom and show off your new investments.
