10 Pairs of Fancy PJs Perfect For Ringing in NYE at Home
Plus, our editors pick their favourite sets!
You know that superstition about however you spend NYE will set the tone for the year ahead? Well, reader, I regret to inform you that last New Year’s I changed into sweatpants immediately after dinner out with friends and we played board games for the rest of the night…. In the year that has passed since, my collection of sweats has bloomed from two pairs of pants to an entire section in my closet dedicated to coordinated lounge sets. And at this point I would trade them all for one night out in a fabulously over-the-top outfit that requires an entirely ridiculous bra configuration, a suffocating pair of shapewear and my most uncomfortable heels.
Alas, this year we will all be spending the night in, whether we like it or not. But that doesn’t mean we can’t up the ante with our NYE lewk. May we suggest a fabulous pair of fancy PJs that will take you from midnight toast to toasty in bed? Below, 10 pairs of luxe pyjama sets, sleep shirts and robes that you could honestly get away with wearing out (but you won’t) and that will make this NYE feel extra-special instead of extra-sad.
Here’s to a great sleep—and waking up to brighter days ahead.

“This classic menswear-inspired PJ set (which, by the way, is monogrammable!) feels like the ultimate ‘I’m a real adult’ signifier (i.e. no more sleeping in old oversize band tees), but the girlish rose colour takes me right back to my childhood. I can’t think of a more ideal vibe—refined yet playful—for NYE. I’m planning on going full Carrie Bradshaw and wearing this satin-y brushed cotton set with a long string of vintage pearls, my fave man-ish gold rings from Mejuri and, of course, a Martini. Happy New Year, everyone—we made it!” —Charlotte Herrold, editor-in-chief

“While I’m a big fan of the ‘PJs that look like outerwear’ trend, I’m also entirely here for PJs that look like, well, PJs—just elevated. This cotton set from European brand Phriya is perfect for ringing in the new year because it’s insanely luxe (you can’t beat hand-painted prints!), but also super comfy and functional. Sporting a pair of chic PJs in über soft cotton means I can roll off my couch and straight into bed after ringing in 2021! This year, I’m planning to style them with my Toni Knockers from Canadian brand Jenny Bird (love a chunky gold earring) and a pair of black, strappy heels—because why not?” —Katherine Singh, assistant editor
Modal Sleep Set with Pants, $85, knix.ca
Washable Silk Cami Pant Set, $311 USD, lunya.co
“This slinky set had me at ‘washable silk.’ While I have yet to run it through a cold wash, I have sashayed around Club Living Room in it and can confirm the naturally thermoregulating silk is ridiculously comfortable while being substantial enough that you don’t feel overly…exposed. The delight of this co-ord is in the details: a perfectly cut cami with a sexy skinny racerback strap, the knee-high slit on the flow-y pants and—praise be!—pockets. For New Year’s Eve at home with my two main squeezes (my fiancé and cat, of course), I plan to accessorize my dark navy ensemble with freshly blown out hair (an elixir for the COVID winter doldrums, I promise), a berry lip, some gold sculptural earrings and a flute of bubbly. Cheers!” —Jennifer Berry, managing editor
