My favourite Italian designers, Dolce and Gabbana's S/S 09 collection takes lazy girl chic to a brand new level of luxury. Using printed silk, button and waist tie details, this laid back lux would make Hugh Heffner and his smoking jacket proud, this season Dolce and Gabbana have done the unthinkable and made pyjama chic the new hot S/S look. Soft, silky and a timelessly classic but innovative and fun, these pyjama suits are a fresh twist on the power suit, a beautifully luxurious option for an evening occasion, hot date or important appointment. Available with three quarter length or full length, wide leg trousers, as a stunning twinset to be worn over bare skin or silk blouses, these suits are too good for the 9-5. While the light blue, salmon and ivory shades are perfect for daytime or a summer evening event, the darker black and navy colours create a more dramatic effect. My favourite is the rich, crushed raspberry option, it's opulent shade and three quarter length, turned up legs adding a playful touch to this sophisticated look, while D&G teams these suits with bows and heavily baubled necklaces, I'd wear it with simple black heels or ballet flats, and minimal jewellery.
If suits are a little too formal or impractical for summer, Dolce and Gabanna has also created mini-versions of the 'pyjama suit'. Either worn as a matching short-sleeve blouse and tailored city shorts, softened with silk, polka dot patterning and a waist tie, or as a patterned blouse with plain, voluminous hot pants, to balance out the statement blouse.
For those that aren't afraid of strutting their stuff in the limelight, in an attention grabbing daytime outfit, pyjama style blouses were styled with patterned, structured skirts, skyscrapper wedges and ribboned headwear. I love the below the knee black and white, textured skirt teamed with a bracelet sleeved white blouse.
Combining an elegant, floor length gown, adorned with silk lilies, with a champagne silk blouse, Dolce and Gabanna have created the ultimate in lazy girl couture chic, the perfect wedding dress for the bride that wants to have an extra long lie in on her special day.
