7 Do’s & Don’ts To Donning The Fashion Pajama Trend (Don’t Get Caught Out There!)

There are few trends that drift in and out of mainstream fashion quite the way pajamas do.  We can vaguely remember a few looks from 2011, its quiet reappearance in 2009, and its earnest insistence on sticking around in the early 2000’s.  And now, with little to no effort, it’s back on the bodies of hollywood’s most fashionable.

This time we say, if you can have all the damn eggs and pancakes you want at 12 o’clock at night wearing a sequin mini dress, then why the heck not steak and potatoes 6 o’clock in the evening wearing a silk pajama set?  BUT—and this is a big but—it all depends on how you wear it.  To crush any confusion you might have about wearing pajamas outdoors fashionably, we’ve put together a quick how-to guide.

Here are 7 Do’s and Don’ts to wearing pajama fashion.

    I”m pretty sure Lily Allen wasn’t doing the trend. It looks like she was just louging around the house and ran out the house to do a quick errand. 

    Rachel Roy & Jessica Alba’s look too much like pjs

    I liked the print on Rihanna’s but i wish it fit her better, but the vogue editor worked hers! I love the fit on her & the print.

    BUT i’m a regular college female so no, i won’t be rocking that look lol

    Alba, rihanna and that vogue gal – they look ridiculous. PJ’s to a formal event? It’s one thing to run out for coff or grab a paper, but somewhere that your picture will be taken? Just dumb.

    Once you wear them outside your home…You have then entered the Ghetto Bird Zone…



     I can’t stand people who wear pajamas out in public.  Walk around looking like mental patients.
