Fashion People Won’t Stop Wearing the Nightie Dress Trend


This summer I’ve spotted an unexpected dress trend slip onto city streets alongside the more predictable strapless and poplin styles. Slowly, but very surely, the nightie dress trend has been gaining momentum over the past few weeks, and it’s about to hit peak appeal. In fact, it may already have, given the sheer amount of people I’ve seen wearing one lately.

Emulating the energy of a night gown, the nightie dress trend offers the lightweight and breathable styling solution that hot summer days call for. Decidedly romantic in its silhouette and detail—the design often features intricate embroidery or pretty lace hems—a nightie dress is a fun and and flirtatious addition to any frock collection.

The charm of a nightie lies in its breezy fabric and flowing design. Skimming the body in a light and comfortable way, the dress trend pulls from nightgown designs across the decades, offering a delicate and graceful summer dress that can stand up against the heat of summer.

Capturing the hearts of New Yorkers by the day, I’ve spotted the playful dress trend styled with ballet flats and colourful cardigans for a pretty and wearable take. Elsewhere in Europe I’ve seen the trend take off in Berlin and Amsterdam, paired with leather boots and barley-there flips flops.

Not only that but I’ve already seen the growing trend at several of my favourite shops. Naturally, sleepwear brand If Only If hosts a wide and tempting collection of nightie-inspired designs, whilst high street labels including The White Company and Free People have added the elegant trend into their latest collections.
