How to Sport Resort Wear in the Office With Phoebe Grace 

All at once summer collapsed into fall, and as we are stepping in to autumn you don’t want to let your cute resort wear go to waste for the rest of the year. Being well‑dressed women with well‑dressed minds, we take a nod from Phoebe Grace’s abundance of vibrant tropical prints content that we will be scoring the trend in the office – with extra care in styling them for the workplace of course.

Here at YCB, we have been swooning over Phoebe Grace for quite some time, a British luxury leisurewear brand that offers an excellent alternative to conventional pyjamas and casual attire in the current nightwear scene. With its sophisticated and modern creations, you can be sure to achieve a flattering fit and quirky look.

You’d be thrilled to know that most pieces are handmade in Britain by local textile specialists, with 100% pure, soft silk because quality is important to Phoebe Grace – from perfecting the prints, crafting the fit and ensuring each precious garment meets the standards. The brand is a total family affair with the label’s namesake and brains, Phoebe, in charge of the fabric patterns whilst her artist mother takes care of the business side of stuff and other family members are responsible for marketing and modelling.

We fell for the divine Black Cactus Flo dress showcased in their new collection and come to think of it, any Phoebe Grace piece works well beyond the sleep department because their leisurewear is much too pretty to be worn for sleeping! The numbers are dreamy, effortlessly chic, versatile and comfortable as heck. There won’t be any painful waistbands digging into your skin or tight tops which suffocate you at your desk. Feel as though you’re working from home at the office and go from bedroom to boardroom right away. You don’t have to forgo comfort just because it’s the office!

So how does one go about wearing pyjamas in the office without crossing the line into Snoozeville?

Tone it down by pairing with neutrals and try incorporating heavier fabrics like a tweed blazer or an oversized knitwear, structured denim or a leather skirt to ensure you don’t actually fall asleep on the job.

Keep your makeup and hair as sleek as possible too – almost as a way to counter-act the laissez-faire nature of the leisurewear pieces. We would suggest a sleek ponytail, strong brows, and a clean, nude lip. Feel free to rock a red lip anytime too!

Put on some good leather mules (or heels) then finish off with a structured tote and statement extras like a floral bib necklace, a bejewelled watch or a chunky bangle. These can and will instantly transform your leisurewear to workwear. If you don’t want to max out a printed pyjama set, wear it as separates or opt for other Phoebe Grace creations. A range of breezy dresses, royally luxe nightshirts and playsuits are also available.

After all, if you’re ever pressed for time, you can slink your way out of bed and into the office in your silky Phoebe Grace pyjamas and no one will bat an eyelid. Just leave out the adorable sleep masks.

We love a woman who can and will dare to wear pyjamas out of the house so get seriously snuggly now.

Happy shopping, ladies!
