DALLAS, Jul 15, 2011/ — Every woman has a favorite soft, breathable nightgown or chemise that keeps her comfortable throughout the night—so comfortable, in fact, that she might just want to wake up and continue wearing it all day long.

During the warm summer months women are inclined to beat the heat by tossing on a light, airy summer dress anyway, so why not combine the two?

According to New York Magazine, this look is not only acceptable but also utterly chic. The experts at Hanro of Switzerland, leading luxury lingerie line, share their favorites to help you stay on trend this season.

If You’re Feeling Risqué – Dive into the trend head first by showing some skin in the Cotton Lace Chemise in black or white. The dress exudes femininity, complete with a decorative lace touch. Pair this with a colorful linen scarf and studded sandals for the most daring way to debut this look.

If You’re Easing Into The Trend – Conquer this style on your own terms by opting for a design with ¾ sleeves, yet keep the length above the knee for a flirty approach. In white, black or light pink the Cotton Lace Bigshirt is the perfect mix between cheeky and traditional. Wear this as a belted dress with wedges for a carefree look.

If You’re More Conservative– There’s no need to bare all to stay on point with this trend—you can choose to wear a nightgown, such as the Tainted Love ¾ Sleeve Gown, that shows just enough leg for your liking. Style the frock, which comes in white, black or light pink, with stacked bangles and leather ballet flats to achieve the look while staying within your comfort zone.
