Think camisoles, PJ sets and silk robes, and you've pretty much nailed the sleep-leisure trend. The luxe PJ suit has been in for quite sometime and has been accepted gracefully in our casual wardrobe. Relaxed silhouettes in luxe fabrics is the key formula to pulling it off. Somewhere this phenomenon has its root in the comfort-driven lounge wear space and the new consumer is looking at being more individualistic and embracing non-conformist new styles for various occasions. Alia Bhatt's recent appearance in a Gucci PJ set at the airport being a case in point. 

Designer Aniket Satam observes that the clothing categories are blurring at the speed of light as the modern buyer is playing with the idea of individualistic expressionism. "A satin slip dress can be worn with a pair of boot-cut jeans and one could channel one's inner '90s diva or simply dress in comfy coordinates for one's next airport outing. Having said that, avoid cutesy conversational prints. Instead, opt for Oriental florals and animal prints," says Aniket.

SEXY WITH AN EDGE

Designer Salita Nanda opines that sleep-leisure pieces add a bit of sexy appeal and it brings out a woman's feminine appeal and lends an edge at the same time. "There are so many ways to style it - it could be cinched with an OB belt, or worn like a relaxed tailored suit. However, it'll die out soon as the fabric isn't everyone's cup of tea. Also, keep the weather in mind as you attempt to nail it," says Salita.

THE '90S REDUX

With everyone itching to take a rather comfortable and casual approach to dressing, sleepwear's popularity couldn't have escalated at a better time. Designer Diksha Khanna suggests day and night time pairings of the twin-set, "For a night out, a satin slip dress paired with an overlay and a jacket could look glamorous. For a day outing, a bustier layered with scarves, or maybe a poncho adds to textured layering. Opt for crochet fabric which is not so heavy," says Diksha.
