Fashion Top Five: Little Black Chemises

May 29, 2008 by Rebekah

Every time I pass a lingerie department, I think, “I really should get some nice lingerie and stop sleeping in t-shirts and boxers.” Then I look at the prices, think about how I’d have to be drunk or mocking something to wear one of those sheer lace things, and decide it’s not worth it. The only thing that’s actually worked for me as semi-sexy sleepwear is a simple black chemise. It beats a t-shirt, and they’re usually less expensive than the bells-and-whistles varieties. The five below are all under $100*.

*All except this Hanro Babydoll Chemise ($110), because it seriously looks like a cotton summer dress, and I’d pay the extra $10 for a little black number that does double duty as sleepwear and, say, a poolside cover-up.

The empire waist on Vera Wang’s Modern Flair Chemise ($73.90) ensures you’ll be able to move around during the night, plus it creates a sexy, body-skimming silhouette that’s forgiving around the middle.

The Simply Vera by Vera Wang line from Kohl’s offers similar style and even more purse-friendly prices – the Lace Chemise ($25.20) also has an empire waist; details like lace trim and a baby blue bow make it more interesting.

This Sheer Jersey Chemise ($22) creates a lovely long line as a going-out tank – especially layered under a cardigan or cropped jacket – and is super comfortable as sleepwear.

Hanky Panky’s Silky Skin Babydoll ($80) comes with a thong. We love Hanky Panky thongs. We also love that they incorporated the lace from those thongs into this chemise at the empire waistline. Brilliant, brilliant.
