Pajamas. Who wears pajamas these days? Well, based on some of the current casual wear and loungewear trends, it’s almost as if those loose-fitting sleepwear garments have made their way into fashion without anyone blinking an eye — we’re kidding, sort of. Regardless, we believe it’s always a good time to think about a quality pajama set. Why? Because they represent the little bit of TLC we all deserve after enduring this past year.

A great set of pajamas will give you a level of comfort when you sleep, and act as your go-to cruising outfit for those late nights leading up to your slumber. Whether it’s trying to get that final Battle Royale dub on Playstation with your buddies, or kicking back and binge-watching the latest releases on Netflix, pajamas will be your comfortable assistant in your wind-down. Here are some of our favorite pajama set picks — style points are taken into consideration, per usual.
