You’d be surprised just how many times I’ve seen women, and
men come to think of it, walking around in pyjamas in the middle of the day,
and worse still, in the middle of town. The first of these encounters was with
a young-ish woman in my local supermarket. She was wearing a pair of pink silk
PJs and a pair of gold Ugg style slippers with no jacket as an attempt to
disguise her choice in clothing. I was shocked; horrified even when I saw her
so shamelessly walking through the aisles wearing what is clearly night wear at
1 o’clock in the afternoon. Literally two weeks later I saw a man walking down
the street in flannel pyjamas and a dressing gown at around 10am, I can only
hope – without trying to sound mean- that he had got locked out of his house whilst
fetching the milk from his door step. Not once did I think whilst looking at
these two examples that they could have actually spotted a S/S12 trend very far
in advance. Maybe they weren't just lazy, but extremely intuitive. I doubt it,
but my point is: Pyjama suits are becoming a fashionista’s clothing item of
Rihanna made the bold decision of a blue and gold silk
pyjama suit for the premier of her new film “Battle ships”. The outfit
certainly was controversial, as those of you who try to keep up with the
fashion world will know. Some were saying she was “oh-so-stylish” and others
just saying “oh no”. I personally think she looked amazing, and that got me
thinking about whether this pyjama trend was such a bad thing after all. It seems the
key to it is to not look like you’re actually going to bed. Sounds odd,
yes, considering they are pyjamas, but trust me.
How to wear:
Find yourself a pyjama suit that is absolutely stunning. If
you can, opt for the designer options like Louis Vuitton but if you need
something a little less pricey Oasis and H&M are also beautiful.
2.No slippers aloud.
This look needs a pair of skyscraper heels to avoid looking
more “sleep” and less “chic”.
An oversized clutch is a wonderful addition to the look and
will make you feel even more fashionable sporting the S/S12 bag.
Hair needs to be well groomed and preferably short or in an
up-do with this look. Shine sprays and finishing balms are a requirement!
Most importantly you need to be confident that you look
great, otherwise you’ll feel ridiculous all day.
