What’s the coziest trend that celebs like Cate Blanchett, Selena Gomez, and Rhianna have all been rocking? I’ll give you a hint. It’s what’s dreams are made of. Pajama dressing! For the past couple of sartorial seasons, designers like Saint Laurent, Givenchy, Calvin Klein, and Alexander Wang have taken to the runways to show us how wearing PJ’s outside the bedroom is downright chic! I’m not telling you to wear your Santa Claus flannels in public, but silky matching sets, lace-trimmed slips, and robe-inspired dresses can easily be taken from the boudoir to the streets with the right styling. Here are three tips for wearing your jammies as clothing.
1. Accessorize Thoughtfully:
It is important for the execution of the outfit to appear intentional so you avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed. The best way to achieve this is through careful accessorizing that is elegant or modern to take the boudoir pieces from sleepwear to streetwear. Elevate a silk set with polished stilettos instead of slippers, use a classic leather belt to cinch your kimono robe, and juxtapose a lacy slip with a masculine watch or utility boots.
2. Break It Up:
Not ready to commit to wearing a full pajama set in broad daylight? No problem! Embracing the boudoir trend is as simple as choosing a silky button down PJ top as an alternative to your favorite classic oxford shirt. Couple it with a great pair of trousers for the office or vintage Levis and sneakers for Sunday brunch. Or, go with the silky pants! Nothing is more comfy when you’re feeling lousy (or PMS-y) than a delicious pair of drawstring pants. Contrast them with a tailored blazer and ladylike pumps!
3. Don’t Be Afraid to Layer:
Try the unexpected combination of a slip dress worn over a knit turtleneck or cotton button-down for daytime. A camisole with lace panels is subtly sexy under a biker jacket for a girls’ night out. You can even layer a velvet robe dress over leather pants for a look that is effortlessly chic!
