Rise and shine, lazy daisies, your dreams have finally come true: pajamas are not only acceptable to wear outside of the house, they’re actually one of the hottest trends of the season. Although this trend definitely gives you the freedom to be a little lazier, you still want to make sure you look good. So, trade out those skin-tight skinny jeans for comfy PJ pants and exchange those devilish high heels for some ultra-soft slippers to get your wardrobe ready for the warm and carefree spring.
1. Find the Right PJs
The “right” PJs will depend mostly on the look you’re going for. Although your five-year-old plaid pajama pants might be the comfiest pair you own, remember that you will be going out in public wearing whatever outfit you choose. For the perfect balance of comfy and cute, choose sophisticated, tailored pajamas for a look that flatters your frame with no Spanx necessary. Silk is always a great material option to give your outfit a more opulent, structured feeling that remains smooth to the touch. To stray a bit from the sleepwear look, while still embodying this trend, look for harem-style cuts for a vogue fashion statement.
2. Dress it Up
Since most of us don’t typically wear jewelry to bed, accessories can make your outfit look much more styled as opposed to sloppy. If you’re not yet comfortable fully exposing your sleepwear style, you can ease your way into your comfort zone by throwing on a jean jacket, blazer, trench coat or vest to add more stiffness to a softer look. Heels are another excellent way to add height and shave off a few pounds, since pajamas aren’t typically the most slimming style trend. If you want to further emphasize your figure, add a waist belt to trim your middle and show off your femininity with colorful dangly earrings and sparkly statement necklaces.
3. Wear Separates
Most celebrities and fashion icons have gone all out with two-piece pajamas, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to. If you’re more comfortable rocking just pajama pants or just a pajama top, stick with this route first and only change your style when you feel comfortable. Your favorite sweatpants can look runway-ready by simply adding edgy studded shoes and a leather jacket to the mix, while rocking an elegant updo and a bold red lip. You can also make sleepwear sexier by tying the ends of a silk button-up pajama shirt and pairing it with curve-enhancing high-waisted pants for a stylish look.
With the OK from fashion leaders like Kourtney Kardashian and Sofia Coppola, it’s safe to say that wearing pajamas outside of the house is no longer a fashion faux pas. Despite how easy this trend might seem, it’s not actually a “roll out of bed” look. However, it’s probably a lot more comfortable and casual than what you’re used to. Make sure to compensate for this comfort by styling your outfit according to your unique fashion sense.
