While donning your favorite threadbare T-shirt and beloved high school gym shorts to bed may feel like the comforting hug you desperately need after a long day, on occasion (or in my case, most of the time) you just want to slip into something a little more special. Something that's similarly soft, but also feels luxurious and grown up, but isn’t super expensive—you’ll be unconscious most of the time while wearing it, after all. Enter: affordable silk pajamas.

Silk sleepwear is buttery soft, lighter, and more breathable than a cotton sweatsuit—the solution to all of your dreaded night sweat nightmares—plus is feels just plain fancy. The best part about opting for a silk set? The slinky material is hypoallergenic, temperature regulating, and won't irritate your skin. Because the fabric is also slightly shiny and more elevated than nylon or cotton, silk pajamas can serve double duty. Yes, they are not just for snoozing. You can dress up the top with a pair of jeans or add heels and a cropped shirt with the pants for a night on the town.

With so many of your favorite brands offering stylish and sexy options to pick from, it can sometimes feel like you're spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the best affordable silk pajamas for you. To help, we've rounded up our favorite options that are either in our shopping carts or already draped across our beds waiting to be crawled into. Scroll down to shop 10 picks that you'll never want to take off. Some are pure silk, others are blends—and machine-washable sets make an appears, though others will require a dry cleaning. But every option will make you feel totally glam.
