If nightgowns are created to be cozy enough to sleep in, they are also comfortable enough to wear during the day. There have been a couple of times I’ve found a piece of clothing so lovely, I purchased it only to be shocked by the tag claiming they are pajamas. Who’s to say I can’t wear it during the day? Here are several nightgowns worthy of day time wear.

Sleeper Love Me Tender Silk Loungewear Dress
This long silk dress comes in an array of colors. It has elastic in the neckline so you can wear it on or off the shoulders. The satiny fabric mixed with ruffles on the neckline, wrists, and hem give it a romantic feel. Add a belt to wear it out on date night.

Lunya Washable Silk Slip Dress
Created with thermoregulating silk, this dress can be thrown in the washing machine and is made to help you regulate your body temperature. Stay cool while looking hot in this drapey piece. The T-back is adjustable so you can find your perfect fit. It also has a very flattering deep neckline.

Skin Odelle Chemise with Shelf Bra
Though this dress has a relaxed fit, it’s still flirty with its v-neck and thin straps. There’s also a criss-cross on the back. Available in four colors, it is made of Pima cotton, which will help keep you cool.

Campo Lydia Nightgown
This stunning nightgown features a fantastic large ruffle collar and drop shoulders. The ruching across the sleeves and gown are delicate while the accents like tucks on the sleeves are subtle. A thick black bow ties it together in the back.

The Hill House Athena Nap Dress
Featuring Swiss dots, this white babydoll dress is endearing and sweet. It has elasticated smocking that contrasts the puffy sleeves and relaxed bottom. The sleeves can be worn on or off the shoulders.

Doen Hillside Nightgown
