These Not-So-Basic Pajamas Deserve A Spot In Your Wardrobe

Luxury pajamas have entered the chat.

Style

With traditional office attire slowly being retired, we're all looking for more options to be as cozy and stylish. Entering the chat: the luxury pajama set, the perfect staple for mixing leisure and fashion. Timelines have been saturated with luxury pajama sets since March; it's time to get on board. Pajamas are a permanent staple in American fashion and society - especially around the holidays. You can't throw a stone without seeing a family, cute newlywed couple, or best friends in matching Christmas sets or onesies.


But since the pandemic and the heightened focus on self-care, pajamas quickly became everyday wear. From the mom who juggles virtual learning and work, to the young boss building her brand from her studio, a great pair of pajamas can make you feel productive while working from home or taking care of the kids. Since they aren't your normal flannel or cotton pajamas, they can also bring a semblance of luxury to your everyday. After all, we have to hold onto every bit of happiness we can.

The best thing about this trend is its affordability. If you want, you can splurge on expensive pajamas like Daily Sleeper or Olivia Von Halle that specialize in beautiful, luxury pieces. But, you certainly don't have to. Many cost-effective retailers like ASOS and lingerie brands like Savage X Fenty offer plenty of options at various price points. The price flexibility creates the perfect present for someone special in your life, whether it's your mom, sister, or girlfriend. The fabric, the designs, and the small details are the key elements to an enjoyable pair of pajamas.

The days are getting shorter and the nights colder, so invest in something that will keep you warm, happy, and stylish. Keep scrolling to see how our favorite girls are styling their luxury pajama sets.

Beautiful Soul Episode 4

This post is in partnership with Ulta Beauty.

"I'm a better mother, I'm a better wife, and I'm a better boss, because I take care of myself."

This is just one of the many gems our girl Mattie James dropped in the latest episode of "Beautiful Soul," hosted by xoNecole founder Necole Kane. Mattie is a lifestyle blogger and mother of three who has grown a loyal following from her relatable lifestyle, fashion, and beauty content. This digital maven takes to Instagram each day to lift the veil of her everyday life. We get to see her approach to juggling motherhood with business, daily fashion inspo, and keeping it real about those moments when the juggle gets real. Above all else, Mattie is committed to making self-care a non-negotiable practice in her life,

In this "get un-ready with me" Mattie shows us how she takes off the day. First, she removes her makeup very meticulously with the help us a few oil-eliminating products that she swears by. Then, she gets down and dirty for a deep cleanse, followed by a layering of her favorite serums and moisturizers. Our favorite tip from Mattie? Use your ring finger to apply your eye creams, since it's the lightest finger and the best to use for this delicate area of the skin. Genius!

As Mattie can attest, self-care isn't just about surface-level treats like getting a manicure and soaking in bubble baths. It's about making that "me-tine" a priority and a non-negotiable practice. It's also about setting the right boundaries so that you don't stretch yourself too thin. "Boundaries are like lanes on a highway," she explains. "You have to switch your lanes, but there's shoulders on the road for a reason. You can drive on a shoulder if you want, but it'll cause wear and tear on your car. So you can do things outside your boundaries, but you'll wear yourself out. You have to be honest with yourself."

In the midst of raising three young children, running her personal brand, and maintaining a household, Mattie is diligent about putting self-care dates into her planning just like she would a meeting. That includes therapy appointments, massages, or even quiet time to do absolutely nothing. These are essential wellness tactics that all serve her so that she can better serve others.

Watch as Necole and Mattie get un-ready (and real) in the tutorial above.
