How to wear the pyjama trend
Today, designers are diffusing the daywear-nightwear distinction by opting to style different elements of bedroom attire independent of one another. What may initially seem like extreme clashing, often softens and modernizes pajama pieces.
Pajama styling strongly affirms that that dressing comfortably doesn't mean relying on slouchy staples like tailored sweats (sorry, athleisure fans). Tailored, elegant and versatile, pajama separates are simply too good not to parade out in public. It's easy to achieve the look and make a subtle entry into a seemingly tough trend to pull off. As shown below the printed top by For Restless Sleepers is suitable for a casual workwear look and can be dressed up for relaxed evening drinks or dinner. Wear it with matching trousers for a bold interpretation of the trend or pair with boyfriend jeans for a relaxed fit and style.
Pajamas made modern
Dolce & Gabbana are longtime vanguards of the pajama look, having produced 1940s-inspired collections featuring slip dresses and knicker shorts as early as the late '80s. Today, they continue to pioneer the trend, melding vintage influences with modern styling. Modern versions of the pajama style trend emerged in quirky prints featuring summer cocktails as a repeat motif across a classic pajama shirt shape, announcing a new era of nonchalant dressing.
