Putting on a favorite pair of pajamas is a sure-bet way to unwind. Here, the sleepwear that we swear by—plus some investment pieces that we dream about. Do you have a favorite? Let us know.
Above: Julie is coveting the Steven Alan Cotton Pajama Shirt currently on sale in gray for $59 (marked down from $145) at Barneys New York. Steven Alan Floral-Print PJ Pants are $49 (marked down from $135) at Barneys New York. (Steven Alan's men's Pajama Shirt and PJ Pant are available from Steven Alan.)
Above: The Dosa Tassel Kurta ($205) and Dosa Tassel Pants ($150) are a night-and-day wardrobe staple made of the lightest khadi cotton by Dosa, one of our favorite fashion lines; both are available at Tiina the Store.
Above: For the woman or man who has everything: the silk Pajama Set from luxury bedding purveyor Olatz (Schnabel); $750 at Tiina the Store.
Above: Christine's favorite: Tonight Button-Front Pajamas from 130-year-old Swiss company Hanro, are made from their signature silky mercerized cotton; $198 (pricey, yes, but they last for years).
Above: Margot's vote goes to Andy Spade's sleepwear line Sleepy Jones. The men's Henry Pajama Shirt, $140, is made of fine cotton with French seams, and "won't put up a fuss if you throw it on under a blazer." The matching Marcel Pajama Pant is $128. Sleepy Jones also offers a women's line, occasionally in LIberty prints.
Above: Myles likes Coyuchi's Men's Heather Flannel Pajama Set. Made of organic cotton by a German family-owned mill in business since 1885, it's currently on sale for $118.80 (marked down from $198). Inquire about the availability of women's sizes. Coyuchi also offers gray Heather Flannel Sheets.
Above: Understated luxury from Araks: made-in-the-US cotton pajamas with contrasting silk chiffon piping and mother of pearl buttons. The Kate Pajama Top Mini Floral is $283 and the Ally Pajama Pant Mini Floral is $201.
Above: Brooks Brothers' cotton poplin Stripe Pajamas feature a boxy cut and satin piping; regularly $98.50, they're currently on sale for $39.40. A similar design for men: Brooks Brothers' Wrinkle-Resistant Oxford Pajamas, $98.50.
Above: Francesca uses the same white towels (from Land's End) and white sheets interchangeably throughout her house. She sleeps—no surprise—in a white J. Crew Vintage Pajama Set; $95. A similar J. Crew design, the Classic Cotton Poplin Pajama set, $69.50, is available for men.
Above: Erin loves the throwback look of J. Crew's Pajama Set in Gingham Flannel; currently on sale for $74.99 (marked down from $95). She's so petite, she wears xx-small—yes, that's a real size; there's even a xxx-small. See J. Crew men's flannel pajamas here.
Above: A reader tipped us off to Marigot, a NY-based maker of sleepwear. We like the Azalea Classic Long Pajama Set, made of 100 percent cotton (available with five different piping colors); $132 from Marigot.
