Bedtime Stories: Take your slinky looks out of the bedroom

Whether it's PJs or a nightie, make your lie-in last that little bit longer with this spring's sultry boudoir trends, writes Katie Wright.

Talk of 'day to night' dressing is endless in fashion, but for spring, designers were working in reverse, bringing sleepwear into the waking hours.

There was the slouchy separates route, as seen at Dolce & Gabbana, or the negligee-for-day approach, championed at Celine.

So the question is, which pyjama party will you join?

Whichever you decide (why not try a bit of both?), these are the pieces that will have you sleepwalking in style.

If you only buy one item of clothing this season, it simply has to be a slip dress.

The undisputed hero piece of the season, strappy silk dresses showed up on countless catwalks, including Calvin Klein, where Francisco Costa's Thirties-via-the-Nineties pale bias-cut frocks paid homage the brand's own history and were styled with box-fresh white trainers, proving that slinky dresses can work for day too, particularly when they're midi-length.

Pale hues - think ivory, dove grey, blush pink - look very chic paired with delicate silver jewellery and black strappy heels.

Shorter lacy tunics or camis can be worn over silky trousers for a bit more coverage - plus-size brands do these kind of wide-leg styles really well.

For a final tongue-in-cheek touch, add fluffy boudoir sandals.
