I have always loved a vintage nightie or a housecat and worn it as outerwear - it can look so stylish especially if you get the accessories right, so don't be scared ladies all you need is a bit of confidence to pull this off! At the moment I'm loving 70's long nighties worn as dresses with boho jewellery, big gypsy earrings and a cool fedora! Housecoats can be worn as a kimono or a dress but add a chunky belt so it doesn't just look like a housecoat and trust me you will get noticed! Flares or denim shorts also look stylish under a long flowing housecoat with the buttons at the bottom left open too! The best thing about this look is if you have a late night you don't need to get changed at bed time you can just jump straight into bed!
