If I could rock my PJs on a daily basis, I might. I’ve become well known for my love of “old man pajamas” as my husband calls them. Those cotton matching PJ sets that are a bit reminiscent of my parents time and to me a classic wardrobe staple.
When the pajama style top found it’s way back into fashion, I immediately snapped it up. In the last two years J.Crew has been making a whole slew of them that I love (and I may have purchased in every color). Here are a few tips on how to pull off the pajama trend without looking like you stepped out in your PJs:
- Instead of a jacket, opt for a vest. Belt it over a pair of jeans and you’re all set.
- If you’re going to try a whole matching set, go for silk. The crisp oxford cotton pajamas are great, but they’re meant for the bedroom and not the boardroom.
- A pajama top is a chic alternative to your standard button-down. The accented piping and open neckline make it the perfect pairing for everything from boyfriend jeans to a wide-flared leg trouser.
- When choosing your footwear for this look, go for something that decidedly does not resemble slippers. A great menswear inspired brogue, a classic pump or strappy sandal will pair perfectly.
As spring is upon us, it’s the perfect time to try this look. How will you style it?
