“She looks sleek and she seems so professional
She's got a lot of confidence, it's easy to see
You want to make a move
But you feel so inferior
Cause under that exterior
Is someone who's free
She's got style and she's got her own money
So she's not another honey you can quickly disarm
She's got the eyes that make you realize
She won't be hypnotized by your usual charm
You've got your plan of attack
That won't attract the modern woman
When you're an old fashioned man
She understands the things you're doin'
She's a modern woman…”
Billy Joel had an idea for what the Modern Woman was like back in 1986. Confident, sleek, professional, and free-
Now in 2014, describing the modern woman can be just as difficult as guessing a woman’s real age (scary thought, I know).
But try thinking about some of today’s female icons in pop culture think Sandra Bullock, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, and Angelina Jolie, to name a few. Strong, stable, intelligent and sexy are the words that come to mind.
Ever wonder what these women wear to bed at night? Probably not, maybe your husbands or boyfriends could help paint the picture (though I wouldn’t recommend asking)…
What does today's modern woman wear to bed? What are the trends in the sleepwear industry?
One thing is for certain, she wears anything she wants. There are times when she’s coziest in a smooth, draping long sleeve nightgown. At other times, sultry and sexy nightgowns are her ideal. Today’s modern women would not settle for less than luxurious pajama sets for lounging and sleeping. When you consider the fact that most people spend about a third of their lives in bed, luxury pajamas make perfect sense. Scratchy, poorly-made pajama sets for women don’t do anyone any favors, which is why carefully selecting the most comfortable fabrics and easiest-to-wear sleepwear designs are so important. And just a side note ladies: You won't find warm pajamas for women superior to SNOA’s anywhere.
Colors: Every woman has her own unique set of sensibilities. What we can tell you is that creamy ivory and classic black luxury pajamas never go out of style. In summertime, pastel tones of mint green, baby blue and buttercup yellow are always popular choices. When wintertime approaches, comfort-seeking ladies who like to look good select warm pajamas for women in deep color tones of violet, sapphire, forest green and classic, always-correct midnight black.
Styles: Super comfy long sleeve nightgowns that hit just at the thigh are figure-flattering all year long, and combine elegance with sexiness in a way that most slinky see through pieces could not compete with. Gaining in popularity for both women and men is loungewear — easy pieces that resemble casual apparel in cozy fabrics that can be worn indoors and out. Fabrics such as modal, cashmere, cotton, silk, linen, and lightweight French terry. Think of the Hot Toddy Top and Frida Pant – you can wear these lovely, versatile pieces to bed, around the house, or out to yoga class just as easily. Loungewear does not mean slouchy; If you do it right – you can be comfortable and chic.
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or for a special lady in your life, SNOA’s sexy nightgowns, flirty shorties, and luxurious pajama sets for women allow for at-home comfort with a dash of panache.
And while your browsing for your perfect piece, don’t forget to listen to Billy Joel’s Modern Women to set you in the mood: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDjFI3kbxuo
27 years ago, our very own Lisa Tanzman acted on her impulse to "give back." She founded a non-profit camp that reunites siblings separated in foster care, giving them the opportunity to relax, have fun, and heal through therapeutic play and nature-bonding activities. According to Lisa, Camp Erutan gives abused and neglected children in foster [...]
You must be wondering, what luxury can come from a pajama set for women? I bet if you look in your dresser right this minute, you would find at least one pair of pajamas that you wear almost every night. Go ahead and look. I’ll wait…Got them? Good.Now that you're focused on this pair of PJs, consider whether [...]
As an everyday woman, relaxation is hard to come by. Working longer than the regular 9 to 5, being a woman is another full time job, and trust me, it doesn’t pay much (cue the men rolling their eyes). As a woman in the 21st century, not one day includes lounging on the couch sipping wine and eating cupcakes (if [...]
1. Make Sure It FitsNo matter how sexy a particular outfit is, if it doesn’t fit properly, the affect won’t be as appealing on you or your significant other. Sexy nightgowns and luxury pajamas that are too loose or overly constricting will fail to complement a woman's body, either hiding her best features or shifting the focus to features that [...]
When we think sexy, we think sleeveless. As an American woman, we have a culturally-influenced notion that in order to be alluring, we need to have as little clothing on as possible.It is a very limiting construct, and most women don't feel comfortable baring all. We want beauty, and intrigue, but also respect...and skimpy doesn't always [...]
Since every woman is unique in the way she looks, it goes without saying that one size does not fit all. When it comes to clothing, only items that fit well will complement a woman's figure. Anything that is misfitting in some way will only make her feel less attractive.Women always want to feel good about the way [...]
Women around the world acknowledge that clothing choices can dramatically improve our moods. For example, a quick trip to the store dressed in sweatpants and a tractor-pull logo T-shirt makes us far less positive, outgoing and decisive than had we chosen a pair of trendy jeans topped with a cashmere sweater. By the same token, [...]
