This isn't the first time we've seen pajamas go from bedtime staple to red-carpet wear, but it may just be the best few takes on the trend. Fashion pros and celebs alike are embracing the easy separates — and while our first thought was this: if someone's giving us the opportunity to wear our comfiest sleep-time staples right out on the street, why wouldn't we?! That impulse was also checked with visions of the not-so-well-executed take on the trend that makes them look, well, more like pajamas and less like eveningwear. Fortunately, Caroline Sieber in Louis Vuitton, Rihanna in Pucci, and Elisa Sednaoui in Salvatore Ferragamo have all zeroed in on the key to pulling off these pieces perfectly (read: not so literally). Check out our styling tips below, then shop the trend to find your own pair of dress-worthy pjs.
- Take a cue from this styled crew and avoid flat footwear — anything like a ballet flat or flat sandal is going to look like a house slipper. Elevate the style with a pair of sexy heels to contrast the easy silhouettes and give them a dressier spin.
- Don't be afraid to add interest with a jacket à la Elisa Sednaoui. Her sparkly blazer finishes the whole look with a touch of glamour to offset the more casual feel of her top and trousers.
- If you're too timid to try both the pajama top and bottom, channel the look by opting for one piece at a time. You can add your pajama bottoms to a fitted tank and wedges for an elegant day look or throw on the pajama jacket with skinny jeans and heels at night.
