How to Wear the Pajama Dressing Trend

January 17, 2014 | By | Comments (1)

Love it (so comfy!) or hate it (it is, essentially, pj’s, after all), the “pajama dressing” trend is still going strong. If you happen to fall into the “love it” camp, or even just the “I’m a bit intrigued by this but not sure how to wear it” camp, here are a few pointers for getting the trend to work for you.

Tommy Hilfiger, runway.

The purest—and also the trickiest—iteration of this trend is the head-to-toe look. Should you care to attempt this, pay extra attention to details like accessories, make up, and hair. Heels, a lady-like bag, a touch of lipstick and a perfect coif will go a long way in making your ensemble look intentional, rather than just-rolled-out-of-bed.

A much easier approach is to break an outfit down into pieces to mix and match. Try a pajama inspired top with boyfriend jeans or a pair of leather leggings to create an unexpected juxtaposition that will take the shirt firmly out of bedroom territory.

Or do the reverse and go for a pair of pajama-style pants. Think of them as printed silk trousers and wear them with a tailored sweater, a blazer, or an embellished blouse. Heels will help elevate pants like these from casual to dressy.

    I have been wearing pajamas for years, so maybe I was ahead of the trend. I also use carefully-chosen nightgowns as evening wear. with the right accessories, no one can tell the difference, and it’s much more comfortable and economical than a formal.
