The summer sleepwear edit: The best pyjamas for sleeping in the heat


Step away from your boyfriend’s baggy old T-shirts. When it comes to sleeping in the heat there are far chicer pyjama options that will keep you cool and comfortable. The key is to choose natural, breathable materials, such as cotton, linen and silk, that feel utterly luxurious while regulating body temperature. From elegant matching sets to sensuous slips, here’s our guide to the best summer sleepwear and pyjamas.

Camisole pyjama sets

If the thought of getting tangled up in sweaty sleeves on a warm night is insomnia inducing a camisole pyjama set is for you – and thanks to the boom in chic loungewear over the last few years, there are plenty of options stylish enough to wear long before bedtime. Opt for classic white with Hanro or Eberjey – which has crafted its embroidered set in a sustainable Tencel fabric – or opt for something slinkier with silk designs by Love Stories and Simone Pérèle.

Short pyjama sets

Desmond & Dempsey has long been the cool girl’s go-to for luxe pyjamas and its offering is extensive. Truthfully, any of its camisole or short sets would be ideal for a warm-weather slumber but it’s the Cuban pyjama sets that get our vote. Likewise, Sleeper, founded in 2014 by former fashion editors Kate Zubarieva and Asya Varetsa, specialises in luxurious nightwear that places equal attention on both design and comfort. Its feather-trimmed pyjama sets were a runaway hit with those looking for a little glamour during lockdown but, this summer, it’s the colourful ruffled linen styles that are proving popular. Elsewhere, Rixo and Maison Essentiele have looked to classic gingham and stripe prints for updated, lightweight versions of classic pyjamas styles.

More of a nightdress person? You’ll be well acquainted with La Perla then. The Italian lingerie and nightwear brand has been outfitting discerning sleepers with slips since 1954 and is famed for its attention to detail and high-end touches. Its red hot lace and silk chemise is a case in point. Elsewhere, Skin puts the emphasis on comfort with breathable organic fabrics while feminine finishing touches are the order of the day at Sainted Sisters and Fleur du Mal.

Robes and dressing gowns

Is there anything more decadent than wafting around your home in a supple silk robe on a summer’s morning? We think not. Queen of chic loungewear Olivia von Halle does a fine line in sleepwear but it’s her new tassle-fringed robes that have got our hearts racing this season. Fabric specialists Meng and Liberty are your go-to for seasonally-appropriate print pieces while Torlowei offers the last word in luxurious kimono styles you’ll never want to take off.
