It’s time to put the flannels away and get out the summer pyjamas (and make sure you choose something stylish for those Christmas morning pics!).
My summer pyjama checklist is basically ‘cool’ (as in temperature and hip) and ‘cotton’. We’ve done a quick scout around what’s on offer this year and picked out our favourite summer jammies.
First stop is Rube & Harri (shown at top and above). Their fresh blues and reds, with distinctive prints, are not only stunning but super-comfortable. Shortie pyjamas for boys and girls and nighties for girls are all $44.95 – I wish that gorgeous Sweet Blossom Nightie came in mum’s sizes.
Snugglebum can always be relied upon for comfortable ‘short johns’ in really cute designs. Fun patterns and an appliqué or print detail on the top are central to the Snugglebum look. This summer, there’s the polka-dotted Confetti collection for girls as well as hot pink stripes and apples and for boys, retro Kombi vans and cool pale blue pirate prints. All Snugglebum short johns are $34.95.
Gingerlilly have cute pyjamas for boys and girls (and also mums and dads!) but it is the sweet striped sets for babies that I love – they’re $39.90 a set and although there is pink for baby girls and blue for baby boys, my favourite is the unisex red duckie set.
I’m always a fan of Eenni Meeni Miini Moh’s understated colour palette and the new summer range doesn’t disappoint. Blush pink and white for girls and a sensational clover green teamed with pale blue prints are a winner for boys. Prices range from $49 to $59.
For classically styled pyjamas, look no further than Eternal Creation. Pinstripes and pintucks, cotton voile and piping – all the details combined with a huge range of prints and colours will make it difficult to choose just one pair. Prices range from $44.95 to $54.95.
