This isn't the first time we've seen pajamas go from bedtime staple to cocktail 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 takes on the trend that make them look, well, more like pajamas and less like evening wear.

The key to pulling off these pieces perfectly is to wear them not quite so literally. Check out our styling tips below, then shop the trend to find your own pair of dress-worthy PJs, just in time for the holidays.

  • Take a cue from this street style pro, and elevate the style with a pair of heels or sophisticated flats to contrast the easy silhouettes and give them a dressier spin.
  • Don't be afraid to add interest with a jacket or sparkly blazer to finish the whole look with a touch of glamour and offset the more casual feel of your 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 jeans and heels at night.
