Could there be anything easier or more laid back than the idea of wearing your pajamas all day? Of course the reality is not quite as relaxed as just slipping on an old ratty set of pajamas and rolling out of bed, but it is easier than you think. First off, choose pajamas in a more luxurious fabric, like silk, satin or cotton sateen. Solid colors (with contrast piping) are easy to wear even as a set, paired with velvet slippers or satin heels. Printed fabrics work best when matched with a solid, basic color (a printed pajama top worn as a jacket with solid colored pants, for example, or a printed pajama bottom paired with a solid colored top).
As with all things, fit is important. Pajama dressing is meant to be relaxed and easy, so choose pajamas that drape rather than bulk up (pick pajama bottoms with a flat front for a more flattering fit) and don’t over accessorize. Now that’s what I call ‘dressing up’ that you can do in your sleep! 😉
What do you think of pajama dressing? Is it impractical or something you’d try out?
*For me pajama dressing is perfect for loooong weekends or relaxed work-to-play days (printed satin pajama bottoms of my own design–circa 2004, black Chanel uniform pullover, black YSL heels).
