Give each member of your family matching sleepwear as a gift or just because. Matching family pajamas are a great idea for the holidays and can be worn on Christmas morning or for your family Christmas card photo. Coordinating PJs aren’t just for special occasions, however. Your family can wear them for all seasons, including spring, summer, and fall.
We’ve put together some ideas for choosing matching sleepwear. There are plenty of options, so every member of your family can find a pair of PJs they’ll love to wear.
PJs can be purchased as separates or sets. No matter your preference, a good place to start is by choosing the type of pajama top you prefer. There are pullover pajama tops for her that look and feel like women’s t-shirts, except they’re designed to sleep in. You’ll find men’s and kids’ tops that either match or complement the women’s pullover sleep shirts for a coordinated look. When it comes to fabric, look for a blend of cotton and modal with a touch of spandex for a pullover PJ top that’s soft, sturdy, and has a slight amount of stretch.
Another pajama top style is the button-down. You’ll find buttoned PJ tops in an array of colors and prints. There are lightweight cotton poplin pajama tops that keep you cool during the warmer months, along with cozy brushed-flannel pajama tops for fall and winter. In addition to women’s buttoned PJ tops, there are plenty of men’s, boys’, and girls’ pajamas from which to choose.
There are different types of pajama bottoms for the family to consider as well. They come as separates and sets, and as with the PJ tops, there are bottoms for every season.
When it’s warm, opt for cotton poplin pajama bottoms. This fabric is light and breathable so you won’t get too hot, and it’s machine washable for easy care. Cotton chambray pants or shorts are another comfortable sleepwear option for spring and summer. A rayon and polyester sleep pant is another type of PJ bottom to consider for your family. This type of pant is light and flowy, with a semi-silky texture. They’re even equipped with pockets, so you can wear them around the house all day with chambray shirts or those made from another lightweight fabric.
Women’s pajama pants made from flannel are easy to match with men’s and kids’ PJs in the same material. These bottoms come in different styles and have elastic waists for comfort. Another option is sweatpants, which can double as pajama pants. There are women’s and men’s sweatpants in a variety of styles and colors, as well as matching options for boys and girls.
If a nightgown or pajama dress is your preference, there are several styles to consider. These sleepwear essentials can be matched to kids’ and men’s PJs, or you can go for a nightgown or pajama dress that coordinates but doesn’t match exactly. For example, if you choose a Supima cotton nightgown with a blue striped print, choose blue pajamas for the rest of the family.
These cute, comfy sleep dresses and gowns come in mid-calf length and full-length styles. There are short-sleeve and long-sleeve nightgowns available to keep you comfortable in any season.
Family robes that match or complement each other are good for wearing over your pajamas. There are two types of robes you may want for everyone in your home—flannel and terry. Flannel robes are warm and cozy for wearing in the fall and winter, and they come in lots of styles including holiday prints. There are even sherpa-lined robes for even more cuddly appeal. Cotton terry robes are good for wearing after a bath or after swimming because they’re absorbent and fast-drying.
In addition to matching pajamas and robes, you may also want to consider gifting your family with matching loungewear. There are plenty of options to consider, including women’s yoga pants and joggers. There are even comfy women’s jeans with elastic at the waist you can wear to run errands or relax at home. For men, sweatpants or joggers are a comfy choice. There are also track pants and elastic-waist shorts to keep him comfortable all day.
For kids, consider leggings for girls and joggers or sweatpants for boys. Any of these bottoms can be worn with a cotton tee or other comfortable top. If you want everyone to match, a white T-shirt with navy or black lounge pants is an easy outfit to put together. Your family’s loungewear doesn’t have to match exactly—you could let everyone choose an outfit in the same color family or featuring the same print with slight differences.
Shop around to find matching PJs and loungewear for your family. There’s also plenty of other apparel and accessories to keep everyone feeling comfortable and looking stylish.
