For many, your recent search for the best silk pajamas might have been prompted by the extended amount of time we've spent at home this past year or simply because your sleep routine is in need of rehabilitation. With this in mind, the styles ahead include classic long-sleeve pairs, sweet short sets, and styles that feel a smidgen more extravagant thanks to bold prints and a touch of feather embellishments. After all, if you’re going to choose slightly more glamorous sleepwear, there’s no need to play it safe.
Consider silk sets a cozy, lightweight alternative to sweats. The fabric—be it pure silk or luxe alternatives—is soft and inherently sultry in a way that might inspire you to saunter around in them even during the waking hours. Plus, creative dressers will tell you that a silk button-down top or wide-leg pants can easily be styled for daytime or a special evening out. Simply put: it's always a good occasion to wear silk pajamas.
