What Your Choice of Nightwear Reveals About You

Prev1 of 4

Because it’s true; you are what you wear… even when you go to sleep.

You probably never had the need to think twice about what you wear to bed. It’s just a subconscious decision you make every single night. And since your sleepwear is the one outfit you’re less likely to be seen in, how you dress (or want to dress) says a lot about the type of person you really are — whether or not you choose to show it (think about all weird things you do when you’re alone at home) (it’s okay; we won’t judge).

You’re a simple and warm person. You make friends easily and can be somewhat playful at times. You don’t understand the fuss of dressing up and couldn’t care less about how you look when you sleep. All you want to do after a long day is to lie down on your bed, watch The Amazing Race and eat some chips.

THE TWOFER – KATE MIDDLETON

Limited to clutches, a woman who holds one with both hands in front of her in a protective pose, like how Kate Middleton does, indicates a shy and defensive personality. And if you find yourself doing so during a date, you’re probably feeling a little worried about where it’s going.

THE ARM-CROOK HOOK – ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO

A common style practised by A-listers, hanging a big shoulder bag on your arm depicts power. “You’re wearing the bag as if it’s a badge of honour or an award. You feel as if you’ve got a sense of superiority,” explained Patti.

THE SCHLEPPER – PIPPA MIDDLETON

Do you have not one, but two, three or five bags hanging on you? Congratulations, you’re a multitasker! One who is fatigued, exhausted and always in a rush. In Patti’s elaboration: “The bags suggest you’re a little spaced-out and have a hard time being present.” In our office, you’d probably be a fashion writer.

THE HANDS-FREE – LEA MICHELE

Wearing a bag slung across the body is a popular style seen among younger women these days, but this is apparently not a flattering thing. According to Patti, “The girl who wears a hands-free bag willingly covers up her silhouette and outfit. It’s useful but it also shows you’re slightly dorky.” We say, power to the geeks!

THE BAGUETTE – VICTORIA BECKHAM

With no relevance to the French bread, and regardless of whether the bag has a strap or not, women (usually fashionistas or street style stars) who opt for the scoop-up, under-your-arm, on-the-go style are usually goal-oriented. “It’s a utilitarian look. You don’t really care about the bag but rather about what’s in it,” says Patti.

THE THIRD ARM DRAPE – VANESSA HUDGENS

Like its name suggests, this style will see an extra arm on you: your sling bag. Draping a bag with a long strap over your shoulder shows a lack of awareness. According to Patti, “it says, ‘I don’t have power over my world.” We personally think it’s still a great casual look!

THE THUMB-TO-PIT – REESE WITHERSPOON

Often sported by Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, holding your bag while keeping your thumb protectively hooked around its strap depicts you as a street-smart woman. “I see women in cosmopolitan cities doing this. They remember their mamas telling them to protect their bags…they don’t want to get them pulled off while they’re walking,” Patti explains.

THE BRIEFCASE – JESSICA BIEL

Unlike The Baguette, women who ignore the strap and go for the top handles are usually in business mode and cares more about her next business destination. Patti observed that this is frequently seen with stressed women who care less about their appearance.
