Pajama Style Dressing

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?
