I KNEW IT.
I saw this one coming down the pike. I put 2 + 2 together and came up with Downton Abbey. I saw bed jackets from a mile away.
Well, actually, they’re called a bunch of stuff–flyaway cardigans, jackets, chiffon cardigans, kimonos, etc. But they are old-fashioned, girly bed jackets. Loose, waist-length jackets in lightweight lingerie fabrics with wide sleeves for easy on/off capabilities. Mostly used for a bit of seduction than for any real purpose.
Now they are day wear! I bought two today: one in a floral chiffon, cream background with peach, hot pink, seafoam green, yellow, etc., and one in a silky fabric, with black background and purples and pinks in the florals. So pretty! Perfect for summer, too, with their breezy pull on/pull off design.
What do you think? Are you ready for a bed jacket? Or is it too “underwear as outerwear” for you?
