For a girls night out

What could be better than our lacey satin nightie for a girls night out. To celebrate our feminine side, wear a lacey satin nightie with a side slit. Wear minimum accessories and a pair of matching stilettos. Keep the makeup minimum, fresh and dewy. If you are in doubt then take a cue from Rosie Hunnington.

If the attire feels to revealing then just throw a lacey wrap over your shoulder.

Jacket it up

The most identity revealing part of a nightie is the shoulder slip. The thin strip always reveals that we are wearing a nightie. If you want to get out on the street without anyone noticing that you are actually wearing a nightie then the best option is to cover the shoulder part. A jacket can serve this purpose. Pair it with a canvas sneaker and trot out in the sun for a great informal look.

With a blazer and a hat

You can even wear a Nightie as office wear! Oh yes, you can go that bold too. Wear a long blazer over your nightie. Cover your head with a hat and get hold of your office bag. It’s time to go to work.

Tie it with a shirt

If you have a beautiful nightie worthy of showing out in the world, then turn it into casual day wear. Put on the nightie and turn a checked shirt around the waist to give it a grunge look. A sling bag, a watch and a bracelet will complete the look. Step out in an ankle length boots to follow this years' trend.
