We're channelling Coco Chanel this #NationalPJDay

It's many people's worst nightmare. You're in an important business meeting or giving a presentation and it all seems to be going swimmingly, until all of a sudden, you look down and you're dressed only in your underwear. But what if that underwear was 100% silk Olivia Von Halle pyjamas? Would you rock it in the office with confidence? 

This coming Monday is #National PJDay and although there seems to be a #day for everything recently, this is one we could get on board with. Underwear as outerwear has been hailed as a trend for the last few years, but in fact is nothing new. Coco Chanel's louche loungewear from the 1920's would suggest that wearing nightwear in the day has been de rigueur for nearly a century. If it's good enough for Coco... 

The trick to pulling off this look with aplomb? Make sure that the rest of your attire is sleek and pulled together. Think a low chignon, statement earrings, a tailored blazer and a slick of red lipstick. This will work wonders to combat the impression that you rolled straight out of bed and into the boardroom. If you don't want to rock a matching set, try the top with jeans or a silk slip with a chunky knit. Dormcore is officially office appropriate.
