Showing up to work in pajamas may be the stuff nightmares are made of, but if you’ve had your eyes on recent streetwear blogs, you’ll know that the world of fashion has deemed sleepwear appropriate for both day and night. Sounds more like a dream, doesn’t it?
If you haven’t already warmed up to the idea of sporting your luxurious Pj’s beyond the bedroom, then it’s about time you wake up and smell the coffee, because this trend is here to stay! Pajama shirts, flowy robes and silk slips are no longer restricted to after-hours; they are now perfect for daytime and evening wear. But if you want to avoid looking like you actually just rolled out of bed, here are 5 simple style tips to keep in mind when you take to the streets in your pajamas. Keep these in mind the next time you want to feel comfortable, chic and stylish all day long.
Pair Your Pj’s With The Perfect Shoe
When you’re rolling around town in your pajamas, you want to make sure that your look oozes style and perfection. How? Start with calculated footwear choices. Sexy sheaths, comfy onesies, and micro minis all work when paired with just the right footwear. Forget the Uggs at home and earn some style points by sporting comfy leather slip-ons.
Or, if you want to dress it up for a night on the town, pair it with your favorite heel or patent leather boot. Heck, if you’re a sneaker fan - pop on your favorite pair of kicks to add some authenticity and flair to your daytime pajama look.
Add Statement Pieces to Your Pajama Outfit
As with shoes, you want to keep the accessories clean, polished and funky. Eye-catching accessories like a fringed purse, a bold necklace, a pair of gorgeous earrings or a bright scarf are a few ways you can take your sleepwear to the streets...
Choosing the right accessory to pair with your pajamas is one of the the best ways to show off your own unique personal style. We’d suggest avoiding bohemian style accessories when sporting the pajama trend; slouchy bags and bed-hair may look messy.
Mix and Match Your Pj Fashion
Gone are the days of wearing Pj’s apart from casual streetwear. You don’t have to wear your Pj’s in a set; mix things up and pair a slim fit shirt with a large silk top.
If you’re feeling more adventurous, mix in prints or play with proportions, sizes and bold colors. To avoid looking like you’re drowning in an over-sized suit, try pairing slim-fit trousers with a large kimono or loose trousers with a figure gracing top.
Style Tip. Keep your makeup and hair simple and casual. Try to avoid heavy, dramatic makeup and let your hair fall naturally. The point is to look effortlessly pretty, not like you’re trying too hard.
Go Slim-fit and Bold
Even though some pajamas are designed shapeless and loose to keep you comfortable while you sleep, we suggest opting for sleeker styles for daytime. Structured silhouettes, collared tops and stylish prints all lend to a sleek and chic pajama look.
In lieu of oversized fitting pajamas, try to go for stylish prints like florals, stripes, and bold patterns. You may even want to add a twist to the trend by trying sleeveless, halter, or cut-out styles.
Wear It With Confidence
Ultimately, the best way to own the daytime pajama trend is to be confident in yourself and your style choice. After all, there is nothing more attractive than a woman who oozes confidence and style in her every move.
