We’re longing for the days when working from home was a novelty and WiFi connectivity issues didn’t take up most of our day.

But while we can’t help but reminisce about the buzz of office life and tea breaks with our work wives and husbands, there is one saving grace getting us through the monotony of working from home - the outfits.

We will truly never tire of waking up each morning only to change into equally comfortable clothing. Proper underwear, suits and jeans have been relegated to where they belong - the back of the wardrobe.

Nailing the art of WFH dressing has taken some time, but for those still struggling, it’s worth noting that while some pyjama sets are reserved for catching Z’s, others have the elegance and sophistication to translate effortlessly into daywear. You know the type. The ones you're proud to pop to the shops in, or take out the bins, but are still comfortable enough to lounge in all day long.

In this uncertain time, weekends spent out and about dressed to the nines have been replaced with lazy Sunday morning attire from day to dawn, all day, everyday. With this in mind, it’s worth investing in a high-quality pyjama sets that will put a smile on your face - it’s all about the small things after all.

We have searched far and wide to bring you the cosiest and most covetable pyjama sets for all budgets and in a range of fabrics, from comfortable cotton to sumptuously soft silk.

Prepare to add all to basket.

Jersey Classic Pyjama Set

Seasons may come and go but these pyjamas from The White Company are forever. They are, simply put, the cosiest pyjamas we’ve ever owned. The jersey fabrication feels sumptuously soft against the skin and it has sustainability credentials as it’s crafted from beech wood where the construction process is carbon neutral and all the chemicals are recyclable.

The relaxed fit ensures that this is the kind of sleepwear you’ll want to spend an entire lazy day on the sofa in. While they are long-sleeved which makes them ideal for the colder months, the material is very breathable and so you won’t overheat when the warmer weather hits. It comes in two shades; grey or an oatmeal hue - both of which have universal appeal.


£75 | The White Company
