Who Said Pajamas and Nightgowns Are Only For Sleeping?

The ultimate dream for me is to get up from bed and just go out in my pajamas. “I woke up like this” hair doesn’t cut it if you don’t have the outfit to back it up.

Thanks to runway shows and trendsetters like Gigi Hadid and Selena Gomez, pajamas continue to be a trendy must-have. The styles range from button-downs as seen from Thakoon and Michael Kors; to silky nightgowns from Prabal Gurung.

The key to the pajama trend is comfort while wearing a loose-fitting ensemble. This also gives you room to play around with shoes and accessories. For Gigi, she wore ankle-high boots to complement her pajama bottoms’ wide hem and made it sexier by showing off her red bra. You can also opt to wear pumps like Selena for a sophisticated look. Do the same for your slip dresses.

If you don’t feel like looking too dressed-up, you can always go for the classic sneakers or flat boots for a more casual get-up.

Tempted to try this trend out? We’ve picked out PJ-like pieces for you. (Unless you really want to go out in your just-slept-in clothes, that’s fine too.)
