Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day: The Perfect Occasion To Buy New PJs

Today (April 16th) we celebrate Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day. This date in our diaries signifies a day of financial relief, after the recent tax year. If you’re lucky enough to have a lenient boss, or even luckier - to work from home, April 16th is the time to roll out of bed, put on your comfiest PJs and get to work.

Pyjamas and loungewear are becoming more and more popular, with some top celebrities even being spotted heading out in what many would regard as nightwear. But where did the fascination come from? On this Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day, let's delve into how pyjamas became such a fashion craze, and explore different styles you could wear on this significant event - after all, we’re literally giving you an excuse to buy pyjamas!

Timeline of Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day

The history behind Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day revolves around tax. Who would have thought that something so relaxing could originate from the financial stress many feel at the end of the tax year?

More and more people found themselves working late during this time of the year, getting their end of year accounts in order - hence why more people started to work in their pyjamas!

This day really took off in 2004, however, we can trace the acceptance of wearing pyjamas all the way back to the 1800s!

PJs have come on leaps and bounds from the drawstring trousers originating from Southwest Asia to the fluffy robes and satin two pieces we know and love today.

With huge luxury names such as Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren now jumping on the pyjama trend, it is no doubt that pyjamas and pyjama style clothing have extended from something we only sleep into daytime and even evening wear looks!

Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day really is the perfect excuse to get about in your PJs, but in our own opinion - every day should be pyjama day!

Benefits Of Wearing Pyjamas

Although Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day seems the perfect occasion to buy new PJs, it shouldn’t stop there! Sure, it started as a fun event, but there are so many reasons why wearing pyjamas and promoting comfort can have such a huge impact on one's mental and physical health!

Wearing pyjamas automatically transforms you into comfort and relaxation - which can in fact greatly benefit the way in which you work. Maybe this day does better for your business than we originally realised back in 2004…

Stemming from those important and highly pressuring jobs such as accounting, tax and finances based jobs, it is no wonder that Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day was promoted in order to instil calm.

Health benefits such as reduced stress and in turn increased productivity can come from wearing pyjamas and being comfy- having an overall positive impact on the way we work. Perhaps we shouldn’t just be wearing pyjamas on a single day of the calendar.
