As of today it is officially 39 sleeps until Christmas day! Has the Christmas fever hit you yet or are you waiting until the beginning of December? Whenever your Christmas spirit kicks in you can’t help but countdown how many sleeps until the big day arrives and what better way to do this than indulging in the perfect sleepwear for the festive period. No, we’re not talking reindeer onesies or santa claus pyjamas. Here at Fox and Rose we like to keep things a little more glamorous and sashay our way through the holiday season, so we’ve picked out our eight most favourite pieces for you to dream the night away in until Santa comes.
Created in opulent amethyst coloured bias-cut satin, the Clara Whispering Chemise by Stella McCartney is truly unique. Its bralet style top and deep ‘V’ back create an illusion of a two-piece from the back, yet the front seductively joins together between the bust using a criss-cross of matching lace to create the complete slip.
For the height of glamour you needn’t look any further than the Gatsby Slip Dress by Shell Belle Couture. Inspired by the romance of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most famous book, The Great Gatsby, this relaxed chemise screams of the charm and glitz of its female characters such as Gatsby’s true love, Daisy Buchanan. Designed in cream silk crepe de chine and trimmed with a long hem of gold Leaver’s lace, you just can’t help but want to throw on some pearls and drink champagne all night.
Made in the softest black microfibre, the L’Exaltante Slipdress by Rosy is an easy to wear chemise that still manages to ooze elegance and intrigue. With its deep ‘V’ lace panels on the front and back and its thin straps that criss-cross between the shoulder blades, it is both flirtatious and ultra feminine.
Creating a delightful mixture of delicate femininity and animal magnetism, the Frost Leopard Camisole and Shorts by Mimi Holliday, will surely bring out your wild side. Styled in a signature Mimi Holliday leopard print, this two piece set is made from the softest silk satin and accentuated with the finest dusky pink lace across the bust. Both are fastened with a single button to create a small peephole at the back.
Invoking the spirit of the 1950s pin-up and inspired by an original vintage teddy, the Claret Cherie Teddy by Kiss Me Deadly is both sexy and cute. Made in a stand out deep red satin, it has a classic, full leg to the bottom and black satin shoulder straps which are fully adjustable. The triangle cups are created using soft back lace which trims both the top and bottom edges. This unique piece is only available from Fox and Rose or our sister site, Joanna’s Wardrobe, so you won’t find this anywhere else!
If you’re more of a pyjamas sort of a girl, then nothing is more glamorous than the La Frivole Pyjamas by Rosy. Made entirely in black satin and matching criss-cross lace, it is highly seductive as well as being ultra elegant. The entirely sheer top is trimmed with deep satin bands both at the bottom and the edges of the batwing sleeves, whereas the bottoms are mostly opaque satin with small panel of lace down either leg.
Nobody does Hollywood style robes like Shell Belle Couture and the Shell Wrap Robe is one of its most enchanting. There are hints of the 1930s Chanel style pyjamas in this robe with its deep folded cuffs and loose shape, yet it manages to create a silhouette that is much more feminine. Created in a pink champagne washed silk, it features delicate gathers both on the front and back yokes, whilst being finished with their signature shell edge stitching.
And there couldn’t be a more delicious statement piece to wear on Christmas day than the Beau Lace Robe by Shell Belle Couture. With its full length of sheer white (also available in black) ornate lace and wide silk crepe de chine trim, lapel and waist belt tie it is the epitome of Silver Screen elegance and sex appeal. We’re sure you’ll be able celebrate in style in this one!
What will you wearing as you countdown the days? And which one do you hope to be underneath the Christmas tree?
