If peeling off jeans at the end of a long day now feels like an alien concept, you wouldn’t be the only one feeling that way. Bollywood’s best-dressed names stand in unanimous agreement on the unparalleled comfort of a cosy pair of PJs for round-the-clock wear. No stiffly starched linens to see here; these laid-back numbers have a distinctly lived-in feel. If you’re looking to wait out the lockdown in comfort, light a scented candle and indulge in some barefoot glamour with these A-lister-approved styles.Inside the sleepwear wardrobe of Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
If you thought matchy sets were the domain of grade school slumber parties, the fresh guard of cosy co-ords and cutesy motifs will convince you to rethink—Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor Khan are all fans. If you don’t have one in your wardrobe already, your choices are many and varied. Ahuja’s pyjama drawer is headlined by an Eiffel Tower-printed set from Dandelion. Your sleepwear arsenal is also incomplete without the comforting touch of white, and further proof can be found in Sharma and Kareena Kapoor Khan, who both reached for the same printed separates. Imbued with polka dots and playful moons, a cosy pair like theirs is ideal for everything on your lockdown itinerary—from early morning oil pulling sessions to burger binges with Friends reruns at night.
You would also be remiss to overlook colour in your sleepwear wardrobe. If you’re tired of seeing candy pinks everywhere you go, Alia Bhatt makes a strong case for investing in a mint green set with whimsical panda motifs. Or treat yourself to a striped pair in sunshine yellow, like the one she was spotted in while cosying up in bed with her cat, Edward. On those days when you’re feeling like doing nothing at all, Karisma Kapoor swears by the virtues of a cosy pair of plaid bottoms. After opting for a festive red pair last Christmas, she looked to classic black-and-white checks and painted her toes in a coordinated hue during the extended lockdown.
As we begin graduating to the outside world again, the pairs you’ve lived in all summer can be sneakily slotted into your everyday wardrobe with some nifty layering. Just ask Priyanka Chopra, who teamed her PJs with a grey blazer for a Zoom-ready look. Or look to Athiya Shetty for cues on how to elevate your go-to cotton jammies. The trick? Simply shrug on a breezy overlay to take your look from the couch to the coffee shop in less than five. Long as you’re rounding out the look with a mask, you’ll be golden.
