While I don’t consider myself a homebody per se, loafing around my apartment is still one of my all-time favorite things to do. And that experience has become immeasurably better since I bought a real-person pair of pajama pants—blue and white striped linen, and so, so comfortable—after years of sleeping in Uniqlo leggings and whatever boxer shorts I found at Victoria’s Secret.
Right now, thanks to street style stars and Selena Gomez wearing their PJs on the streets of Paris and social media giving us a glimpse into cool girls’ bedrooms, sleepwear is having a renaissance of sorts, and new brands have popped up to meet the demand. There’s Sleepy Jones of course, and loungewear stalwarts like Eberjey (where my pants are from) and Cosabella, but also newer lines you may not have heard of yet.
Click through for eight of the best sleepwear brands that’ll make you want to get back into bed.
If you like Dusen Dusen and Aelfie, you’ll love this Sydney-based sleepwear label. Not only are the boxers, undies, and tees made of certified organic cotton, they feature colorful stripes, moons and stars, and abstract rainbow florals. We pretty much guarantee you haven’t worn anything this fun to bed since you outgrew your Little Mermaid PJs in grade school.
Sunrise Underpants, $22.95; at ALAS / Midnight Telescope T-Shirt, $59.95; at ALAS
One of the brands to emerge from the pajamas-as-outerwear trend that’s endured throughout the past few years, Sleeper bills itself as “walking sleepwear.” And they don’t disappoint: the slip dresses look as party-appropriate as any we’ve seen sold as cocktail attire, and we’d be more than happy to sport one of the long, piped sets to brunch this weekend. Bonus: If you’re a real fancy-pants, you can get yours monogrammed for $15.
Marx Red Pajama Set, $245; at Sleeper
This NYC brand is less than a year old, but already they’ve become a favorite among fashion editors. Our favorite part? They’re one of the few that features unique prints—newspaper, cityscape, and alphabet—that don’t read as super feminine. Because minimalists like to have a little fun, too.
Point Collar Newspaper Print Shirt, $75; at Recliner
Sleepwear for girls that live in sneakers and hoodies all day (read, most of us in 2016), Lunya offers crazy-soft leggings, rompers, racerback tanks and more, all thoughtfully designed to be so comfortable you don’t give them a second thought. This spring, they’ve even launched a collection made of Meneya, a fabric that’s meant to to increase circulation and give you a better sleep. Hey, worth a shot, right?
Pima Raglan Top, $58; at Lunya
Maison du Soir
A surefire bet if you’re looking to graduate from whatever ratty T-shirt is at the back of your drawer to some high-quality, grown-up PJs, this Los Angeles-based line has mastered luxe loungewear. We’re especially fond of their quilted kimono robes and gauzy, light-as-air sleep dresses.
Ibiza Dress, $115; at Maison du Soir
F.R.S. For Restless Sleepers
If you’re going to drop a couple hundred bucks on a pair of PJ pants, you’d better be able to wear them outside of bed. Luckily, this Milanese brand’s printed silk pieces could easily pass for Gucci—between that and their impressive attention to detail, we’re giving the hefty price tags our OK.
F.R.S. For Restless Sleepers Zeus Printed Silk-Twill Pants, $460; at Net-A-Porter
Since launching back in 2009, Marigot has become a go-to for easy sleep sets, nightshirts, and robes in classic chambray, preppy checks, and cute animal prints (think flamingos, owls, and frogs). They’re also stocked in boutiques across the country—and online, of course—making them a good choice for those who need to up their lounging game in a hurry.
Lorient Block Print Short Pajama Set, $125; at Marigot
Sant and Abel
Pretty, girly, and begging to be worn during the warmer months—they do hail from Sydney, after all—these 100 percent cotton boxers, robes, and PJ sets may actually have the power to make even staunch nightowls want to hit the hay.
Palm Sunday Pink Robe, $89.95; at Sant and Abel
