This Nightie Is the Perfect Throw-On Dress for Afternoons In the Park

Despite our continued time spent indoors, our appetite for pretty dresses certainly hasn't settled down. Many are now retiring their loungewear and leggings in favour for throw-on dresses, as they are the easiest way to get dressed but still feel relaxed at home. Enter the brand of choice, Sleeper. This label was founded as a pyjama brand, and so naturally, it creates the comfiest nightie-style dresses around. 

Sleeper's most popular dresses have puffy short sleeves and looks like something straight out of a Dickensian tale. The brand has updated the traditional white nightdress with bold colours and prints. We're especially taken by the dusty-pink and lemon yellow versions. The Instagram crowd proves that this nightie is the perfect throw-on dress for days working at home in the heat or socially distanced picnics. Ideal for those days when you can't waste any time deciding what to wear. 

Style Notes: Dress the linen maxi up with heels and a statement bag.
