20 Ways to Wear Pajamas… in Public!

Remember pajama day at school? That was awesome. So awesome that we want it back. And lucky for us, it’s looking like we might get our way. Apparently pajamas aren’t just for sleepovers and movie nights anymore. We’re spotting the fashionable loungewear, on the street, at fashion shows and even on our favorite style guru, Ms. Jenna Lyons. Whether you’re fully on board with sporting jammies as daywear or feeling a little tentative about the trend, here are 20 ideas for how to rock the look.

1. More Prints Please: Go print crazy with some patterned pajama bottoms and a more formal patterned top. Throw on a solid cardigan to tone things down a bit and keep warm. (via Not Dressed as Lamb)

2. Lady in Loungewear: Fashion blogger Rumi Neely is never one to shy away from a risky trend. She took the look head-on at Sydney fashion week in this classic two-toned PJ top. (via Harper’s Bazzar)

3. Subtle in Silk: This silky floral top is way too cool to only wear at home. Pair this with some dark wash jeans or a pencil skirt and a simple pair of pumps to totally rock this trend. (via WWD)

4. Lap Up the Layers: Pair your pajama pants with a crisp white tee, some classic heels and a structured jacket or vest to make the loungewear look more like a patterned wide-leg trouser. (via The Cut)

5. Ensemble Envy: Turtleneck and slouchy pajama bottoms? Why haven’t we thought of this before? (via Refinery29)

6. Full Suit: Major props to this gal who went all out with the look. If only we could all look like this when we rolled out of bed. (via Harper’s Bazaar)

7. Minimal Must: If you’re into the matching top and bottom, but think the previous look is a bit too heavy on the loungewear, try this set that has a solid top, as opposed to a button down. (via Elle)

8. Lyon Loungewear: Always a pro at mixing formal and casual, J.Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyons masterfully pairs these wild blue bottoms with a super structured tuxedo jacket. (via Racked)

9. Snuggle Up: Or go full snuggly on this thing and ditch the structured jacket for a fluffy, cozy coat. (via Büro 247)

10. Model Mayhem: Oh, to live a model’s life: slip out of bed, throw on some heels and wear your silk PJs to your first appointment. (via Style.com)

11. Pajama Imposter: Okay so this combo is probably not actually a pajama set (if it is, somebody please tell us where we can get it), but the overall vibe is still there. If you’re not sure how jammies will go down at work, try sporting matching pants and jacket for a similar look. (via Teen Vogue)

12. Plaid Party: Take winter by the horns in this cozy combo. Pair your pajama set with a bulky coat and heels for a look that’s equal parts comfy and cool. (via Street Peeper)

13. Electric Blue: Here’s some inspiration for those of you who are all about this fashion fad. Finish the look off with a headwrap for the ultimate sleepy chic outfit. (via Büro 247)

14. Cheek and Chung: Leave it to English It-Girl Alexa Chung to make a pajama top look like a luxury, silk blouse. Tell us your ways, Alexa. (via Views of Now)

15. Striped on the Street: Your boyfriend’s pajamas never looked so good. (via Style.com)

16. Designer Duds: If you’re going to buy a pair of Louis Vuitton pajamas, you better get your money’s worth and rock those babies on the street. (via Street Peeper)

17. Floral Fixation: This pair of PJs has some super cool detailing that makes them look a little more formal. Pair it with some heels and you’re good to go. (via Glamour Magazine)

18. Match Made in Heaven: The Man Repeller (AKA fashion blogger Leandra Medine) is never afraid of a wild trend. She went fully matchy-matchy here by pairing her set with a vibrant gold and silver jacket and coordinating shoes. (via Man Repeller)

19. Trouser Trick: With a little bit of styling, these paneled jammies look like designer trousers. (via Barbara Ann Solomon)

20. Roses are Red: We don’t blame this gal for rocking these PJs around town. If we had a set as gorgeous as this, we’d never take it off. (via Street Peeper)
