It may be okay for models to look as though they literally just rolled out of bed and decided not to get dressed, but I personally do not support the head-to-toe ‘pajama’ dressing trend that took hold of many a spring 2011 runway. While these styles may be comfy, their slouchy and unpolished nature is not going to be appropriate for most real life situations, despite the long-standing American tradition of touting PJs in public.
However, there is indeed merit in pulling bits and pieces from your sleepwear repertoire and pairing them with more appropriate items. In general, you can follow a simple, no-fail equation to make your sleepy wardrobe choices work to your advantage:
1 Structured Item + 1 PJ Item = 0 Bum Factor
1. The Pajama Pants
2. The Pajama Top
3. The Lingerie Top
4. The Sleep Dress
