10 Luxury Sleepwear Brands You’ll Love


Bedtime is no time to become a style slouch.

With loungewear now moonlighting as a viable work-from-home wardrobe and pajamas are pulling longer shifts, this is the perfect time to reconsider your downtime attire. It’s never been easier to find good looks and complete comfort at the same time, in the same pieces.

To maximize your relaxation, start with your fabrics: Wrap yourself in cashmere, lounge around in satin or cozy up to plush velour. By bringing together the world’s best sleepwear in the most inclusive size range you can find, Bare Necessities makes every night more restful…not to mention more beautiful.

Whether you’re looking to step up your own sleepwear or give the gift of rest and relaxation, meet the 10 best-dressed after-hours labels you need to know by bedtime.


Revolving around pure silk and organic cotton, Australia-based Papinelle is the surest sleepwear route to feeling beautiful and comfortable—even when you’re kicking back on the couch. French-influenced, feminine floral prints; solids and stripes; delicate embroidery and soft, luxe knits, all in an understated palette, are ethically made from top-notch fabrics, resulting in a complete (and completely fabulous) collection of loungewear, pajamas and robes. Fair warning: You may not want to put on anything else ever again.


Flora’s luxurious lingerie is exceptionally pretty and feminine, which tracks because the brand has its roots in bridal. Using fabrics picked for how incredible they feel against the skin, Flora Nikrooz sleepwear combines satin, charmeuse, lace and modal in styles ranging from sexy honeymoon sleepwear to sweet, casual pajamas for any day of the week. Choose vibrant solids or hand-drawn floral prints, intricate embroidery and cutouts or simple, smooth satin. It’s all meticulously hand-crafted, and much of it remains very wedding-friendly. And unlike a lot of other fine fabrics, these can be machine-washed. If you want to feel beautiful even at bedtime, Flora Nikrooz is your brand.


Hanro goes hand-in-hand with pure European luxury. This 135-year-old Swiss brand specializes in fairly minimalist designs rendered in only the finest materials—mercerized cotton, primarily, for a finish that imparts a silky feel. Every piece is impeccably cut to drape just right over the body: not too tight, not too loose. Used sparingly to striking effect, trims include satin and lace. Hanro nightgowns in particular embody the brand’s take on modern elegance. Incredibly soft against the skin, Hanro intimates all but guarantee sweet dreams.


If you know and love the quirky-chic ready-to-wear label, then you instantly understand what Kate Spade New York sleepwear is all about. Consistently clever and irreverent designs with girly undertones in pretty much every style and fabric, these pajamas are best worn with a wink and a nod (and a cocktail in hand). Unique prints filter in and out, from bows and hearts to sprays of flowers and modern animal prints (oh, and the occasional renderings of nail polish bottles, jewelry and makeup) in a palette of pinks and reds, black and white. There are always a few witty idioms sprinkled in for good measure. The overall effect makes bedtime, or rising and shining, something to look forward to. Couldn’t we all use more of that in our lives?


Starting with a newborn receiving blanket, designer Annette Cook set out to create a collection that soothed the senses and ended up crafting the softest-to-the-touch textures imaginable. All designed in mix-and-match neutrals, some pieces pull a double shift as outerwear; in others, you’ll guaranteed not to want to leave the house anyway. A shawl-collared robe or cardigan are two of the loveliest way we’ve found yet to chase away chills, and though it may sound like a small thing, the snuggly heathered plush socks are a 5-star winter luxury that make such a big difference. If you envision living in a Nancy Meyers movie, this is the corresponding clothing.


This label brings understated, all-American luxury to all. None other comes close to the preppy perfection that is Lauren Ralph Lauren’s wide range of polished classics. Be it at home or at a five-star hotel, you know you’re going to look and feel great in crisp cotton shirting, matching flannel notch-collar pajama sets, sweet satin chemises with coordinating robes and the rest of this total lifestyle collection that spans sizes XS to a plus-size 3X. No matter where you’re staying or who you’re with, you can always rely on these traditional stripes, plaids, polka dots and paisleys (to say nothing of a sizable collection of bathrobes) to go with confidence.


Beautifully cut and draped for comfort, these are the pieces that Donna Karan—the iconic woman designing for other women—wants to wear. They’re downtown-cool separates for the uptown girl who believes in ease and simplicity…but never at the expense of her chic. Always with a nod to the trends of the moment (think tie-dye, animal prints and color blocking), this line of cotton and modal bedtime attire, in sizes S to 2X, is never totally beholden to them. If that sounds a lot like your personal modus operandi, meet your best possible pajamas.


A timeless collection of comfy, unassumingly sexy satin and knit pieces, glamorous PJ Harlow separates are intended to be effortlessly mixed and matched according to taste. Vibrant solids in virtually every silhouette allow you to create a downtime wardrobe that’s also about as polished as you could ever ask for. What’s maybe the best part: As fabulous as everything is, it’s all machine-washable. (Learn more about the brand in our Power Figures interview with founder Tina McMillan.)


P.J. Salvage is where comfy, trendy and top-of-the line overlap. Combining the most touchable fabrics, fun prints and of-the-moment cuts, this contemporary California lifestyle brand does luxe lounge and sleep better than just about anybody. From flannel pajamas festooned with pop-culture motifs (cocktails! Dogs! 1980s cassette tapes!) to slouchy, soft sweatshirts and joggers adorned with stars or rainbow stripes, these pieces are instantly happy-making. The best part: You can wear the vast majority of it as your weekend wardrobe.


Sleep, lounge—it’s delightfully one and the same with Splendid’s on-trend prints and relaxed styling. The brand that started with a quest to make the perfect T-shirt has gone on to apply the same design principles to the rest of what we wear now for a casual, colorful and polished aesthetic that lets you bring the warm-fuzzies you feel when you’re at home to wherever you’re headed. Worn as a set or broken into separates, you can wear any Splendid piece as ready-to-wear and thrillingly get away with it.
