Chances are, your five-year-old self had, at some point, tried to wear pajamas out of the house. The chances are also high that, unless you had exceptionally cool parents, you were forbidden to do so. Fortunately, wearing pajamas out of the house is officially in, and your five-year-old self is screaming. Never again will you have to choose between comfort and style, because some of today’s hottest trends feature pajamas that you can wear in and out of the bedroom, and look great while doing it.
1. Silk Sets
Matching sets are the perfect one-and-done outfit for any occasion. Celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez have been spotted flaunting chic silk sets. Go for a trendy pattern like striped or plaid that isn’t too busy. You can pair it with minimalist shoes like stilettos to make this a look that’s sure to turn a few heads.
There’s nothing more on-trend than combining sleek and slouchy pieces. The Kardashians are infamous for including sweatpants in their classy street style. In order to avoid looking like you just rolled out of bed, it’s important to find staple accessories that will complement such casual pants, like heeled booties and a trench coat or a blazer.
3. Wide-Leg Pants
Wide-leg pants are not only comfortable, but a stylish way to execute pajama couture. Make sure the leg of your pants hits no further than two inches above the ankle. This way, the pants will look clean and put together, rather than swallowing your lower half with fabric. To style them, you’ll want to pick out a top that accentuates your waist. To finish off the look, choose simple shoes, like flats, that won’t take too much attention away from the pants.
4. Lace Camisoles
A lace camisole is a classic piece that will never date. There are lots of ways to dress it up, like pairing with a leather skirt and heels. If you are looking to go the more casual route, you can pair with jeans and boots. Either way, you’ll reap the comfort of wearing pajamas and the stylishness of an upscale outfit.
The robe is debatably the most iconic statement piece in pajama couture. It is extremely versatile and can be worn a number of ways – as a dress, a jacket, or even a top. In the wintertime, robes can become great layering pieces, worn with a lighter top under it and even with heavier jackets over it.
At first glance, you might think these styles look like you forgot to get dressed this morning. But the reality is, loungewear is the new streetwear. Take advantage of the comfort and style this trend offers because pajama couture is the ultimate ‘I woke up like this’.
