3 Creative Ways I'm Styling My Pajamas in the House
Working from home while sheltering in place hasn't exactly been stimulating from a fashion perspective, although I am admiring the consistent mirror selfies from my peers, and I can't say they haven't fueled some outfit ideas. Personally, after debuting my crop-top cargo set and dressing up for date night at home — all while in the confines of my 760-square-foot apartment — I needed a change. Scratch that, I needed a style challenge if I didn't want to officially resort back to my mismatched sweats and faded muscle tees.
Enter: my Kate Spade New York falling flower PJ set. It's incredibly comfortable, but rather than jazzing it up, I'd been sloppily rolling up the pants and throwing on a cotton sports bra for meditation sessions. But one would argue this co-ord deserves the spotlight. So many influencers have been posting creative ways to dress up PJs, and I was eager to hop on that bandwagon.
I thought about the lonely pieces in my closet that could stand to see the light of day and dreamed up three different easy outfits that instantly brightened my mood — all revolving around the aforementioned PJs. I was able to hold onto a smidgen of comfort just knowing that the PJs at the foundation of my three different looks were the ones I could fall asleep in. But more importantly, I felt a little more like myself, fully living out a few fashion moments even though I was working from home. Scroll through to see my pajama style, then shop my exact coordinates, along with similar pairs that could be dressed up just as adorably.
Pajamas With a Blazer
Inspired by the structure an oversize blazer can bring a nonrestrictive silhouette like a free-flowing dress or PJs, I decided to throw on this tailored pink one over the full coordinate set. I figured the bright shade, along with the gold hoops and chain-link necklace I added, may just cheer up a coworker during a Zoom meeting. I love how this Wald Berlin basket bag complements the whimsical print on the PJs, so had I actually needed another carton of milk, I would've absolutely toted it to the grocery store.
Pajama Pants With a Hoodie
I love the relaxed look of a sporty hoodie with PJ pants and some striped socks. When I'm just lounging around the house, I think it's fun to play with prints and patterns. I have a full rainbow set of scrunchies that I choose from depending on my athleisure color scheme, and the light-pink one was a perfect match. If I had to step outside, I'd slip on these white low-top sneakers, especially since this PJ pant is cropped.
Pajama Shirt With Jeans
Perhaps my favorite laid-back style move is a pair of mom jeans and a pajama shirt. I could sleep in my Agolde straight-leg denim — it's seriously that comfortable. A pair of magenta slingbacks spoke to my eccentric taste, and I added some layered pendant necklaces to make things even more personal. It's safe to say that in this outfit, I was inspired to get some work done.
