Trends: Pajama Dressing Is Oh So Posh
Some of you may have spent yesterday… um… overindulging in a cocktail or five, and thankfully today’s top trend is one that’s set to help nurse that holiday hangover. Pajama dressing is dispelling those silly over-achievers who actually encourage getting dressed in the morning. You saw sleepwear styles gracing the runways at both Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton, and have watched in awe as celebrities like Rihanna, Rashida Jones, Michelle Williams, and Jessica Alba rock effortlessly rock the pj trend on the red carpet — and by, golly, it’s time you tried it too.
For the average gal, this “I just rolled out of bed” look leaves you in danger of looking sloppy and shapeless — neither of which was intended by the fashion heavies dolling out there version of the trend — so here’s how to get that relaxed look while still looking posh and polished.
1. Make sure the fit of your separates is tailored. The pants should be hemmed to graze the tops of the feet and the top should fit well at the shoulders and wrist — any overly bulky pieces will just look frumpy.
2. Avoid busy patterns on top, a simple silk tank or tee will help keep your silhouette clean, while the following the fit of rule number 1 will keep you from looking too busy or boxy.
3. Add a beautiful shoe, and we don’t necessarily mean a heel. A simple metallic flat or sandal will add a little razzle-dazzle without countering your effortlessly chic style.
