Our Favorite Pajamas (That Are Still In Stock)


Know what makes a darn-near-perfect gift?  Jammies.  They’re just…happiness…wrapped up in flannel.  Cotton joy.  Silk bliss. Etc.  Annoyingly, at this point, most of the good ones are sold out.  But if you have also saved some gift giving until the bitter end (actually, let’s reframe this to ‘glorious finale’) or you, like me, have penchant for post-holiday self gifting (#itsathing), then allow me to tempt you with some seriously cute jams (still in stock!!).

NOTE:  In the photo above, I’m wearing J.Crew’s Pindot PJ set – it’s almost sold out, but see below for some good alternatives…..

Quick Shop Our Favorite Pajamas

Menswear (Cotton)

featured: 3J NYC Cotton Pajamas

The most classic of all PJs, these have a borrowed-from-the-boys sexiness that is hard to beat.  Menswear (Silk)

featuredMorgan Lane Tuxedo-Style PJs & Pinstripe Silk Shorts Set (gah!  these just sold out!)

Like the cotton ones above, but twice as lux (and sexy).

Menswear (Flannel)

featured 1: Nordstrom Starlight Flannel PJs – comes in a ton of colors

featured 2:  Mae Buffalo Plaid Cozy PJs – I like the darkly feminine color combo on this buffalo plaid

featured 3: Victoria’s Secret Flannel PJs – this set is a classic, and comes in a ton of colors

I mean….doesn’t everyone need a set of these?  And while they’re not nearly as sexy as menswear jammies in light cotton or silk….they’re ten times cozier and cozy = happy and happy = sexy so therefore cozy = sexy.  #fashionmath . I like to roll up the sleeves a la Zoe Deschanel in New Girl.

Thermal Pajamas

featured 1Victoria’s Secret Thermal Set – this color is sold out, but there are several more – these are really good on the bum

featured 2: Madewell Striped Thermal Set – SO cute and currently 30% off!

There’s lots to like about thermal sets.  They’re warm and cozy, but also (unlike giant flannel menswear pants)….comfortable to sleep in because the pants aren’t getting twisted around.  Most of these sets also have a nice, non-saggy bum which is a perk.  (ha! get it?)

Coziest Ever PJs

featured 1: Mae Vintage Thermal Set – like the above sets, but not as tight – I LOVE the contrasting cuffs

featured 2:  Make + Model Fuzzy Sweater and Shorts Set – so cute I DIE

featured 3:  PJ Salvage Fleece Set – readers rave about these sets every year

Thick and fuzzy, warm and fleecy, these sets are mad cozy and cute.

Romp Around

featured 1Madewell Short Flannel Romper – I’m swooning hard over this adult onsie with the embroidered heart #wordsIneverthoughtI’dsay – now 30% off

featured 2:  ASOS Long Romper – I can’t trust myself NOT to wear this one out of the house…..

Menswear (Jersey Knit)

featured 1Maison du Soir Striped PJs – one of my favorite PJ brands.  The fit is always spot-on, and the fabric is durable, soft, and drapey.

featured 2Cosabella Jersey Knit PJ Set  – I’ve been drooling over this one!!  I live for that trim. Now on sale!

Jersey menswear sets have all of the drapey luxury of silk PJs….but are cozier.

Breaking news!!  My two favorites: La Ligne and Lingua Franca teamed up to release some epic sets that are selling fast.

Cami Sets

featured 1Topshop Slate Cami Set – I love how sweet this little set is

featured 2: Fleur Du Mal Silk Cami Set -this is the cami set from my gift guide earlier this month….

Little cami sets are my weakness.  I warm them up with big cozy cardigans (or oversized cashmere sweatshirts) and legwarmers.  You can see it in action, here.

Updated Sweatsuits?

featured 1: Topshop Crewneck Knit – dying over the color and the fact that these look an awful lot like PJs my kids wear.  Love it.

featured 2: Make + Model Sweatsuit – drapey and cute.  This would quickly become my at-home momiform.

featured 3: BB Dakota Lounge Suit – AHHHHHH I LOVE THIS!  I’d totally wear this one out of the house!

It’s like the old Juicy Couture sweatsuits….made modern.  I’m digging it.

For the Kids!

featured 1Hanna Andersson Kids’ Star Wars Organic PJs – years later, and Star Wars jammies are still my boys’ favs (currently 50% off!!).

featured 2: Tea Collection Neon Rosa PJs – Tea Collection makes the best prints – these are on sale when you buy two. (And there’s a bunch of pretty patterns to choose from.)

Like we’d leave the kids out.  Most of the good kid jammies are sold out, but we did find some good ones still in stock!  (And on sale….)

Guy Jams

featured 1: Majestic Windowpane Set – like something we would’ve bought for my Dad, back in the day.  And while Mike is firmly a sweatpant kind of guy….I still like these, too.

featured 2: AEO Buffalo Check Romphim – YOU ARE WELCOME.

featured 3:  AEO Red Romphim – Gah!  This link isn’t resolving properly, but it IS the right link, so I’ll leave it hoping it fixes itself.   Because this one is totally worth trying.  (You can see it listed in the category list here……)


Stay cozy!




  1. Off topic for this article, but is there a place on the site where I can see a running list of editor’s top picks under $100? There’s a sweater that had been posted previously and isn’t any longer, but I’d like to check it out. Nordstrom… tie waist…
